Christian Connection is an award-winning Christian dating website in the UK, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, USA and Canada.
Since the UK launch in 2000, thousands of Christians have found friendship, love and marriage through the site.
I could definitely relate to the longing and desire to have someone to share your whole life with. I gave her some well-meaning advice which I hope she took on board, but it got me thinking; if I could speak to my younger self, what would I say? What do you think, Hopeful Girl – can you really stay friends with an ex?
Recently I was speaking to a friend about marriage, and as I listened to them talk about how much they wanted to be married, I felt like I was looking at a younger version of myself. ‘My girlfriend and I recently split up,’ said the Facebook message. I don’t want to lose her from my life, but I’m still hurting from the break-up and find it painful to be around her.
Bottom line: play hard to get, as hard to get as you can.
The reasoning behind it: men love a good challenge and the more you distance yourself from them the harder they will work to catch you.
