It seems like everyone is so angry nowadays. Everyone seems to have a beef. Democrats hate Republicans: Republicans hate Democrats. This anger we see in the culture even permeates into the dating world. Nowadays dating profiles from sites like Tinder to Christian Mingle, often have an edge of anger to them. Lately, I’ve read more than a few profiles from Christian singles who state on their profiles: “If you are a Trump supporter please don’t contact me!” Really? Has it really come to this?
Anger and Christian Singles Dating Dysfunction
Let’s be honest, nobody wants to date angry people filled with rage, bitterness or hatred. It’s just not a fun and positive experience to even be around such people. In the internet dating world I see a lot of dissatisfaction. While some singles do come away with positive experiences, most of the thousands of comments I receive are from men and woman who have had horrible stories to tell. What has surprised me about these comments is the extreme views, and the level of jadedness. Responses like “All men are sexist jerks”, “Guys just wants sex?, “All women are whack jobs” abound. But is this reality?
Today’s Christian podcast from David Butler at Oasis talks about the roots of anger and how to deal with it.
