"To me, the situation is also relevant. Part of what you (should) learn as you grow up, which, it seems to me, is decreasingly appreciated in our culture these days, is that different situations have different standards of behavior.

"Even if pursuing her would result in a relationship, which I rather doubt, I don't think that you should want that. It's rarely a good idea to run after someone into a relationship. A healthy relationship has to be balanced...…"
"I think that there's some truth to the essay, but I think that overthinking ways to reform that aspect of things can exacerbate that very problem. Trying to contrive artificial ways to get people to bond is exactly the kind of thing that…"
"I see the change as less an elevation of political issues and more a lowering of traditional religious ones. If you look back to "the old days" when churches, to a large extent, were the communities in which people lived, communities…"
"I have a handgun and a concealed carry permit. I don't ordinarily carry a gun. I've never been in a situation where I would have used it if I had had it, and the odds of such a situation arising are, for me, usually…"
"I'm in more or less the same situation with a friend. My approach was to tell him exactly what I thought, once. That time, while being as polite as possible, I bluntly told him exactly what I thought. And I'm not going to…"
"It's hard for people to grasp that marriage ages, child bearing patterns, etc., have been in constant flux. People think that we wait a long time to get married now... Who knows what they would think if they were dropped into England in…"
"You might be looking for a deeper response than this, but do you have a car? If so, offer to give him rides places, even if it's just to hand out with his friends. On the way home, ask him if he wants to get ice cream, or a…"
"I wouldn't count this as any sort of mandatory Christian belief, but I believe that the state should be a small and limited part of a more robust society. I think that those Christians who are on my side in this need to reassert our…"
"I like Christie as governor of New Jersey. I'd probably like him as governor of my state, too. But, I don't think that he's the savior of the GOP. Christie's not as conservative as I am, but he's in…"
"I see the push for gay marriage as part of a broader push to mandate stupidity. No one actually thinks that the union of a man and a woman and the union of two people of the same sex are the same. They don't function the same way,…"
O Death, where is your sting? O Hell, where is your victory? Christ is risen, and you are overthrown. Christ is risen, and the demons are fallen. Christ is risen, and the angels rejoice. Christ is risen, and life reigns. Christ is risen, and not one dead remains in the grave. For Christ, being risen from the dead, is become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. To Him be glory and dominion unto ages of ages. Amen.Happy Easter, everyone!See More

Hey allI know that a girl likes me, and that I like her, but I'm confused as to where we've left things. It's not awkward or anything, and we still talk and have banter, it's just it doesn't feel like we're more than friends.I was wondering whether any of you had any advice on how to take the 'next step' like the title says - how to move from friends to being in a relationship.I have a feeling I just need to man up and make a move, but I was interested in any advice you all might have.That's…See More
"Maybe you firmly believe 1 and 2. Okay, your business. But was it necessary to say it in a forum of honoring vets? Then complain if it's not posted by they guy that owns the blog? With free speech comes responsibility, and a right to free…"
