Statistics Prove One of CC's Battle Cries
It's interesting to me that there is a steady stream of articles, books, questions, insights, etc. sent to Cache' Connections by those who have an interest in what we are doing. I don't think the topic of relationships is ever going to go out of style; even married people are sending fodder.
I especially like articles that prove my point. One pastor from Georgia sent me an article posted in USA Today yesterday titled "Men, women flip the script in gender expectation." It has some interesting statistics; some very interesting, some a bit disheartening. You can read the full article here.
What caught my attention was this post-note:
•Singles can fall in love with a friend. Seventy-one percent (of singles surveyed) fell in love with someone they did not initially find attractive after having great conversations or shared interests or both; 35% fell in love with someone even though they felt no sparks initially.
It's exactly what we've been talking about. Looks are not everything. Friendship first. Most importantly, keep an open mind about the choices you make.
Have a SUPER weekend!
