“Women’s fertility is a sign of health, not of disease; a source of power. But they are under constant pressure to restrain it, to apologise for getting pregnant, and to suppress their anger and fear at being cheated (as increasingly they are) of its natural flowering.”


Should I tell my Girlfriend About my Addiction to Pornography? I’m Afraid She’ll Leave Me.
Last edited 5th March 2015

Should tell your girlfriend about your porn problem, or should you continue to conceal it? I say neither. Instead of telling your girlfriend that you are hooked on porn and risk losing her, get rid of the porn, and tell her what you’ve done for love of her. If you truly love her, then you know that love is capable of very heroic acts. As I once read, a knight cannot be brave unless he has love. His love gives him his courage.

Courting vs. Dating | What's the Difference?
Last edited 9th February 2015

There are lively debates around courting vs dating. The concept of courting may sound outdated to some in our modern world. When hearing the term, many have images of their grandparents being chaperoned by their parents with their special someone. In those days, courting was about getting to know your potential partner as much as possible in a safe, pure environment. Often, these courtships led to successful marriages that lasted lifelong.

The Freedom of Boundaries
Last edited 1st February 2015

Most people hear the word, “boundaries” and automatically bring up the question: “How far can we go physically without crossing a line?” Of course, that’s an important question to consider, but in fact there is far more to it than that. Yes, boundaries can be physical. But they can also be emotional, or even conversational. For me, respecting my own boundaries with other people is essential: it’s one of the primary ways that I learn to respect myself!

Last edited 28th January 2015

Sometimes I hear girls complain about the fact that they can’t find any good guys. I don’t know what they’re talking about.

I see great men in my grandfathers, my father, brothers, uncles, cousins, friends, co-workers, boyfriends, and neighbors.
