OK I didn't read every post, however I have a question. In orthodoxy, especially here in Ukraine the chances of finding a single Orthodox lady is rare, most are married, engaged or nuns  ;D So is marrying say a Catholic, or some kind of Protestant like Anglican or Lutheran (that not far away from Orthodoxy in theology) off the table. I'm feeling the pressure to look into marriage, by family and friends, since a lot of my friends are getting married.
I didn't know there is GOARCH in Ukraine. Or Anglicans.

For anyone who has gone through the same circumstances tell me your experiences with dating as an Orthodox in a culture dominated by the non Orthodox.
When dating Roman Catholics I've found it can be awkward deciding whether to have the first date in the midst of created or uncreated purgatorial fire. You don't want to pressure her, but at the same time you don't want to compromise.
I assume you've watched the version of that dive narrated by the Aussie?  Hilarious.

Well, obviously, folks here in America have to broaden our horizons. Finding a mate at your local parish is for a lucky few. Perhaps there's a thread about Orthodox youth meet-up opportunities as they exist in North America, or perhaps someone should start one.

That is the intended purpose of virtually every Orthodox youth organization.

Of course, weird church mixers tend to attract people who would attend weird church mixers. There is even a midnight sun house in Alaska to which convert Antiochian parishes send their unmatched youth.

Who was the crazy Protestant who said what you win them with, you win them to?

Apparently some people think I have a plan/threat to release secret information on them. Response is twofold:

1. Lol. Really?
2. This is not the case.

A mod told me that my post #34 has been construed as a threat to release secret information on posters.

There is nothing like a threat there. In any case, I've no information to release beyond what the public board already has on it.

Is there medicine for hotness, Dr. Mina?
Yeah, they're called deep fried twinkies.  Get yourself a dozen and you'll be off to a good start.
