Let’s review the shocking statistics on sex and dating I shared earlier this winter.
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.
Whereas I promised myself I wouldn’t get involved in the 50 Shades of Grey debate, I’m guessing you know how I feel about the situation. (Remember this rant?)
Thus the reason I am THRILLED to help share the message of Old Fashioned, a film that brings to the big screen a story of courtship and healthy relationships, and offers a view of what dating looks like when the first goal is respect for your partner.
Can I get a Woo Hoo?!
“Old Fashioned” is the faith-based tale of a former frat boy and a free-spirited woman who attempt an old fashioned courtship.
Here’s a sneak peek —
My husband John and I went to see Old Fashioned with another couple opening weekend this past winter. We loved it, and the other couple did too. Sweet friends, I highly recommend this movie!
But don’t just take our word for it! Here’s what marriage expert Pam Farrel has to say about Old Fashioned —
“OLD FASHIONED is a fresh look at the real meaning of desire, romance, and love. We hope it becomes a new fashion to be a bit more old fashioned in the way we all handle relationships! Make an OLD FASHIONED movie date and share popcorn and a little true love.”
That’s right: relationship experts recommend OLD FASHIONED. Why not buy your own copy to watch with honey this weekend? Now that’s a date night made simple!
Since Old Fashioned is released on DVD today (yippee!)—John and I will be getting our own DVD to rewatch this weekend. You too?
And now to make it easier to watch Old Fashioned this Father’s Day Weekend…..(drum roll please….)
I am excited to be able to share a DVD copy away to a *She Sparkles* readers! Yippee!
