I’ve been married in real life to the same amazing woman for twenty years. We met in person, not online. Only eight people were on the internet in 1990. We weren’t two of them.
But this weekend I’m preaching on the difference between on-line and real life relationship as part of our Like Me series. You can watch parts one and two of the series here on on iTunes (search Connexus Community Church). I have some thoughts based on my experience with social media, some resources I’ve read and of course, what the Bible teaches about relationships. But I’ve never been in an online relationship.
Many of you have. I’d to hear from some of you who have fallen in love on line. Those of you who met and stayed together or met and broke up.
- What got you into the relationship?
- What was enticing about the relationship?
- What was difficult?
- How hard was the transition from on-line to real life?
- What would you do differently?
- What do you regret?
You can answer all or just one of the questions. All comments are moderated, but if you want to use an assumed name…I’ll allow that on this post.
PS. The promised blog post on reaching people who don’t go to church is still on its way. Thanks for your patience!
