Want to hear some shocking statistics?
According to Match.com’s annual singles survey, 55 percent of singles have sex on the first date.
That’s 66 percent of men and 44 percent of women. And 55 percent of men believe couples should be sexually active at least by the third date.

As a woman, a wife, a mom, a passionate follower of Jesus — I’m super concerned about the messages we are sending our women, especially in the media.

“Old Fashioned” is the faith-based tale of a former frat boy and a free-spirited woman who attempt an old fashioned courtship.
