I. Am. That. Woman.

Although we may have likely never met, I bet we are pretty similar... but this is me.


I am...Daniel.  My lions are chocolate chip cookies, and I am surrounded by them.  Except in my story, God helps me keep my mouth shut.


I am Moses.  My small group comes along side of me and holds up my arms, and my determination, when I don't think I can do it anymore.


I am that woman at the well, who prostitutes her emotions to food to feel good and to make it all better.  Jesus is the bread of life, who says, "Come unto me, and I will give you rest." 


I am the lost sheep, that Jesus lovingly pursues to bring me back into the fold.  He says, "Hear the sound of my voice through my Word. Crave me, not fragile shells of comfort that break when the next problem comes."


I am the blind man.  I have sat by the pool of Siloam for so long, hoping and waiting for a miracle to come my way.  Jesus has come, and he has opened my eyes to a life that is so much more rewarding and promising.  I don't have to be a slave to my food wants.


Being in the online Bible study for Made to Crave has made a dramatic effect on my life, basically because I care again.  If you are anything like me, you've already been on a bunch of diets, lost weight and gained weight, and maybe have decided that you can live in a state of complacency.  Nothing's going to change, right?


WRONG.  This time is different, this time I am arming myself with truths I have never really thought about before. I am made to crave my Lord and Savior; I am fearfully and wonderfully made and, finally, my soul knows this VERY WELL.


Where are you in your walk with MTC?  Are you haphazardly doing the study? Or are you involved in everything you can do?  Or are you in the middle?  You are that woman.  You can learn to crave God.  You can do it!

I'm Sure Stranger Things Have Happened - Dating Advice for the Definitely Not Dead

If you have been a follower of the Flying Pants for a length of time, then you know I am not exactly  a supporter of online dating.  I just have personally had a pretty terrible experience.  But last year, about this time, after posting a blog entitled 10 Ways to Know Your Online Date is a Scam, I had a hailstorm of people writing and telling me that their brother's friend's mailman knew someone that had found LOVE on the internet.

So, as a response to this hailstorm, I set out to prove how hard it is to meet someone online with the Online Dating Diary posts (see a featured post to the right of this column).  I spent a month genuinely trying to contact men to make a dating connection and reported it back to you, the Flying Pants reader.

Those posts absolutely wrote themselves because I met so many weird/"interesting" men.  I still hear about Mr. Talks A Lot and the blind guy that liked to go to strip clubs.  In fact, I still hear about those posts and get requests to…

So Good News and Bad News.

Gentle reader, welcome to the 2017 Online Dating Diary.

This almost didn't happen.  I was seriously considering letting  Date Guy make me a one-man woman (see last post)  and that went down horrifically in flames because I am, quote, "a terrible person who doesn't regard other people's feelings."  (I probably should not have used quotes because that is not the actual verbiage.  But you get the idea.) We would have been going in two different directions on a very important topic and so after a fiery text message exchange, Date Guy is out of the picture.

So let me bring you up to speed.

I am already talking to Gorgeous, who is just that, and has a cute accent.  I am a little amazed that we are matched because he is just that gorgeous.  I have yet to do a Google image search on him because we talk frequently.  Another consideration is Ladies Love Country Boys, who is a business owner who has a veritable redneck paradise on the Westside -- he lives on a few acres a…

What A Girl (and a Guy) Wants - Dating Advice for the Definitely Not Dead #7

Thanks, Christina.  It's easy to say what a girl wants, but then how do you find what you're looking for, whether you're a man or a woman?  They say that there's an app for everything -- wouldn't it be great to have an app where you can make your perfect person?  Go through all your options and pick out what you like and have your person delivered to you in 30 minutes or less?

Alas, dating readers, it's a inevitable truth that finding your person is nothing like that.  In fact, it's more like you pick a few things and then you have to check an option called "Surprise Me" that delivers some hidden personality quirks or baggage later on in the relationship.

But thankfully we can arrive at a consensus of physical and personality traits that are generally considered desirable.  And thanks to roughly 138 of my single friends, we can get a general idea of what a girl (or a guy) wants.

The question I posed was, "What are the top three things you …
