Perry Answers YOUR Questions About Singleness, Sex and Dating - Part 9

Nov 29, 2015



Episode Description

In this podcast Perry answers REAL questions that you've submitted to about singleness, sex and dating! In this month's episode, Perry answers the following questions:

"I haven’t found anywhere in the Bible where we are promised a spouse. For years I’ve been told that God has someone just for me and that’s hope I have clung to. But now I realized that God may have a purpose for my singleness. He may not have someone for me. Could that be the case?" - Dana

"What about men and women that are called to be single?" Gianna

"As a guy and leader striving to keep Christ at the center, what are some good practices or ways ensure that we as a couple and I as the leader am keeping Christ at the center?" - Ryan

"I don’t feel like I’m spiritually ready for any dating relationship, but at church, with friends, family or anywhere else I feel like it’s looked down upon and I’m a second class citizen because I’m single. Should I just date someone and figure out any growth and spiritual maturity along the way?" - Parker

"What about praying together… I’ve read conflicting things. Is this ok? Or is it opening yourself up to a level of vulnerability that should occur later down the road?" - Stephanie

"What about single parents dating? When should I introduce my 5 year old son and how? Part of me wants to protect him by not introducing him and seeing where the relationship goes. But the other part of me doesn’t want to fall for a guy before seeing his interaction with my kid." - Stephanie

"I’m a single 23 year old pastor. Whenever I go on a first date I try not to put anymore pressure on it besides getting to know each other. In the last three years every date I’ve been on I leave the date thinking she was nice but I don’t feel a connection. I maintain a friendly relationship… (never go on a date again) but say hi at church. I usually find out the girl is upset with me. I never truly understand why, I didn’t lead her on or try not to. I often feel like giving up dating and women. What is your advice to a young single pastor on dating?" - Rob

"I am unmarried and have already had sex with the man I am with now, he is the only guy that I have had sex with. If we plan to get married why should we stop now?" - Katherine
