Sitting across the table from my beautiful friend in the quaint coffee shop, my worry mounted. She was sharing details about her new whirlwind relationship that had begun a couple months earlier.
“I finally met that guy I’ve been talking to on the Internet. After calling and text messaging constantly for the last two months, we decided to take it the next level—so we met half way last weekend. It was amazing. He’s perfect for me! He is so kind, smart, funny, dynamic … he is too good to be true!”
Exactly! I thought to myself.
LIE #2: If it feels right, it is right.
LIE #3: I can overlook a few character problems (a.k.a. red flags)—no one is perfect.
LIE #4: I really know him after spending so much time talking to him.
LIE #6: Coincidences are a sign from God.
LIE #7: It’s normal for him to pressure me for sex. That’s just how men are.
LIE #9: When I find a man and get married, I will finally feel happy and complete.
It would be very interesting to hear from both our brothers and sisters in Christ. Do you agree with these? Are there others that you would add?
