The science of anuptaphobia — the fear of being single

Scientists, and nonscientists alike admit that there are things that happen every day that cannot be explained by fact. In fact, conceptualizing the cosmos is so elusive to us, that it has almost become more of a matter of fan fiction than something we take seriously. Nonetheless, for those that are interested or curious, there is a planetary trend happening now that may be interesting to explore called retrograde. People that believe in Astrology, and its effects on our lives here on Earth will warn you to prepare, and be extra gentle with yourself during this time of retrograde. Astrologers believe Mercury affects us in all means of communication: During this time of retrograde electronics may malfunction, you might find yourself off-balance and anxious, or irritated. Miscommunication may be more prevalent in your relationships; you may find yourself needing to slow down and hit the pause button on financial and relationship decisions. Additionally, you may need to give yourself time for ideas to simmer before acting on them. Mercury in retrograde may induce anxiety as people anticipate the energy of this astral negatively affecting their lives. However, a more constructive mindset is to use this time to check in.

It would seem people think the current “base system” is antiquated and a poor reflection of our stages of intimacy. It’s and people have been going straight to what we used to say was a “home run.” These tweets answer the question of what comes after our new “first base.” Life in Style. Love & Relationships. Parenting. Loquillo. Loquillo.

Unlike a lot of people who drift around aimlessly in life with no concrete plan or direction, we know that our lives are not condemned to an uncertain future. We all have a state in life that we are called to, a specific purpose to our lives, a vocation that we are to fulfil. What then is a Vocation? It is a call to a concrete state in life. It is a lifelong commitment to something that God wants us to do as well as a call to be the unique person that He made us to be.

More on that later. The main vocations are: Religious Life Consecrated Life The priesthood is a vocation open only to Catholic men, and as this is a blog primarily for Catholic women, we will not discuss that in this post.

Wednesday, January 25, The Challenges of Being Single and in Ministry In a recent conversation with a single pastor he shared how he had met his ex-wife at an online Christian dating service. They were later divorced. He eventually left his church and is now a single military chaplain. He had been a single pastor before meeting his wife and now had returned to being a single minister once again. What desires and temptations led him down that path and what could have been done to prevent it?

A recent online discussion included the following comment. This pastor really didn’t have a sounding board or absolute confidant. After 7 years, this pastor resigned from the position and is no longer clergy. Another single pastor whom I know had been dating a woman in the church he pastored. She broke off the relationship.

Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. Adam and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame. Because of the present crisis, I think that it is good for a man to remain as he is. Are you pledged to a woman? Do not seek to be released. Are you free from such a commitment? Do not look for a wife. But if you do marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned.

But those who marry will face many troubles in this life, and I want to spare you this.

One more step

What really attracts a man? That is, if they were to approach a woman at a bar, coffeeshop, whatever , what attracts them in the first place, and what turns them off?

Since we were wee lads, girls have always discriminated against younger boys in school. Yet a funny thing happens as men get older.
