Have you ever been tempted to give up on dating?
Dating apps are the new normal and first impressions matter in a way they never have before. But, are dating apps causing men to respect women less and perpetuating the self-esteem issues that women already struggle with? Even with the pressure of one swipe as your one chance, a woman still wants to know she is worth fighting for. But does she believe it’s possible for her? Dating apps don’t have to be a bad thing, but what does it look like to use them well?
Kristin Fry has her share of laugh-out-loud and cringe-worthy dating app stories, and she knows the fatigue that can come with digital dating. Despite the instant gratification that some dating apps advertise, true relationships are more than an interaction based on first impressions on a mobile device. In a warm, conversational style, Fry tackles a broad range of topics from evaluating profiles to first dates to maintaining healthy peer friendships even while dating. Kristin mines her own experience in the dating world but also includes insights from interviews with thirty married couples, and in-depth biblical study from Abraham and Sarah, the life of Jesus, the letter of Ephesians, and more.
This isn't just another how-to book for finding Mr. Right; this is a guide to help single Christian women navigate the new normal without forgetting their genuine identity in a God who loves them. By the end, digital daters will have the right tools for dating well--and know that God's best is possible.
