Welcome to a brand new Heart of Dating MINISERIES. We decided to do this MINISERIES in response to the recent COVID-19 outbreak and global pandemic.
So, for this miniseries we will be addressing how to date during a global pandemic because the struggle is already real and now it seems that the struggle has just become even REALER, right?
Through this miniseries are addressing things like your fears of singleness and isolation, how to drop the hanky virtually and give yourself an online dating reset ( even how to talk to people through DM’s) as well as ways to still be intentional and creative your dating life even if you cannot see the other person as much.
In week 1 we talked all about your fears of singleness and isolation such as “Will I be single forever?” and also talked about 3 ways to really address those main fears.
Last week we talked about how to drop the hanky digitally both on social media and on online dating.
Today we are going to talk about how actual creative ways to be intentional and have fun dates during quarantine.
Also, we want to share with you that we are actually able to do these miniseries because of our amazing sponsor, Faithful Counseling. Faithful Counseling is a faith based online therapy network that falls under the incredible BetterHelp umbrella. We are HUGE fans of therapy, but especially love therapy that incorporates Christian principles, prayer, and spiritual practices.
And to be honest, what better time to seek virtual counseling than during this uncertain and difficult time?
Getting connected with an affordable christian therapist is SO easy through Faithful Counseling….you can fill out a form about yourself and your needs, and Faithful Counseling will connect you with a fellow believer online within their network of licensed professional counselors. Once you are connected to a therapist, you can start communicating in under 24 hours.
You can also login to your account anytime and send a message to your counselor and get timely and thoughtful responses back. You can also schedule weekly video or phone sessions and do them from the comfort of your home, in your most comfy attire.
The last cherry on top is that a lot of people do not do therapy because of the cost, but Faithful Counseling more affordable than traditional offline counseling and financial aid is available.
So you guys, if you’ve been looking to try out therapy but haven’t found someone for you, or it’s been too costly, or you just don’t want to make the trek to the office…. we encourage you to consider trying out Faithful Counseling.
