What If I’m Not Attracted To My Date, But He’s Still A Great Match? What If I’m Not Attracted To My Date, But He’s Still A Great Match?

I recently met a wonderful man who seems like a great catch. He’s nice, smart, funny, would make a great husband – and I’m pretty sure he’s into me! Here’s the problem: I’m just not attracted to him (mostly because he’s shorter than me).

Is Sex Before Marriage A Sin? Is Sex Before Marriage A Sin?

A man I was dating wanted to make love to me and I asked if it is acceptable or considered a “sin” (he is an Orthodox Jew).
