Russian orthodox dating rules
Rather than arranged marriage between strangers, I could imagine kind of hybrid where the parents, the children and the priest/church community all kind of play some much more involved role (than kind of bystanders) but I have no idea.
All of my married orthodox friends met there spouses at Camp Nazareth either as a camper or in their later years working together.
Not that I'm absolutely against it, but I've met someone for the first time in my life that I want to live life with, following the One.
I also spoke to another priest who spoke very highly of him and loves him tremendously; he knows that many of us ladies would find a husband in him.
He quite literally fell in my lap (ETA-- wait, okay, not literally lolol) and I think the fact that I wasn't looking and wasn't vying for his attention in any way whatsoever is part of what attracted him to me.
Look for chances to meet Orthodox That's tough. There aren't really any orthodox dating sites worth using.
My husband and I are better people by learning to try to make ourselves a little less sinful for the other.
While I'm not actively looking to date right now, the fact that most parishes consist of older folks and young families hasn't escaped me.I was scared that it would deter our friendship, however, he is THAT sweet of a soul that he hasn't made it awkward or anything and our relationship remains the same. I'll give it a go, thank you for your prayers and advice. I just wanted to add one more thing, woman to woman, with the hope that it will help you with some perspective about being friend-zoned by this guy in particular, because that always sucks...The "even his imperfections are beautiful" thing is typical infatuation, not an accurate description of his true imperfections or a sign that he is The One.I met my husband at one, so you might keep your eyes and ears perked for those. There is Real Break, but I assume some of the trips cost a bit.There's also Project Mexico and a lot of the people who attend are in their 20s-30s. Those are just a few things I thought of off the top of my head.
