Most of the couple's new joint photos started appearing in March and April of this year, so that could be around the time when they reconciled.
Depending on when finished filming, it may not make it to when they got back together.
I think, in his mind, he was very obviously pursuing me in a romantic way, but because of our friendly history, and his lack of verbal clarity until directly asked, I was confused.
To his credit, he made things 100% clear when asked, but it seems a bit odd to me that I needed to ask at all.
I don’t quite know when this all began – presumably along with, or sometime after, the sexual revolution.
The modern ‘casual’ nature of secular dating has trickled into our own Christian spheres, with many men in the Church now appearing reticent about declaring their intentions when pursuing a lady.
So I asked him directly, “is this dinner as friends or is it romantic?
I’ll admit part of my confusion was due to conflicting advice I was receiving from mutual friends – some saying his attention was clearly a romantic pursuit and others telling me he had several female friends and often spent time with them, and this was nothing more than that.
He was prodded along by Craig and Shep, and he seemed truly devastated afterwards.
If that decision wasn't really even solely his to begin with, it's not surprising that he didn't stick with it.
My sense is that this comes from a fear of rejection or a subconscious imitation of the example set by our non-Christian peers or some combination of the two, and probably other factors besides.
A few years ago I bumped into a young man I’d known for some years at a wedding; afterwards he started contacting me, and asked if he could come by for a coffee or a beer.
