I thought that my best bet of meeting a guy would be Bible study, but I really think it is time I stop searching.My best bet is to look to God for love and see what He gives me."The guys that were born and raised here have a unique swag that you can’t get anywhere else.Also, it’s a stereotype, but the guys here are nicer.I've had guys in New York tell me they are surprised that I eat so much because I'm on the smaller side, but with Chicago guys, you can order a burger or steak and they won't blink an eye."Even if you do go on a date, alcohol is still involved. Honestly, if you don’t involve yourself in the party culture, your best chance at dating is meeting someone in class."I've seen more actual going on dates and spending time together instead of just ‘talking’ (or hooking up) in the beginning of relationships.Most places you meet people around here are pretty centered around alcohol, like country-line dancing places and bars.You have to really get yourself into faith-based groups to find someone.
People tend to stay in, so the people you might click with you don’t get to see as much. A lot of people visit from out of state, and there’s also an army base near Anchorage, so you end up having a lot of summer flings."I dated this 'graffiti artist' for three years when I was younger, but I recently grabbed drinks with him — four years [after we broke up] — and he's still into [graffiti art].
I'm not talking someone who does murals, I'm talking tags and train cars here.
All I could do was think about how irrelevant this is to the real world.
It also seems that people are either married or dating someone.
Even if you get Tinder, you run out of people you can swipe through within a matter of days."But my faith is really important, and it can be hard for me to find someone who draws me closer to Christ.
