    #180: How To Identify and Avoid Emotionally Unavailable Men

    Let’s talk about emotionally unavailable men … What does that mean? How can you tell if a man is emotionally unavailable? What should you do if you realize the guy you’re talking to is emotionally unavailable? In this episode, I answer all these questions! You’ll find out that you’ve been on dates with, or dated, emotionally unavailable men. It’s not as hard as you think to detect them, it’s more difficult to cut them off and move on. If you’re a woman who is ready for marriage and looking for that marriage-minded man, then don’t waste your time with someone who can’t be in a relationship. If you feel like you can’t get to know that man you’re talking to, or you’re confused by him, it’s possible he’s emotionally unavailable. Tune in to learn how to identity emotionally unavailable men and what to do about them! Starr’s Resources:

    #179: Why You Should Look For A Husband

    Have you ever wondered where the line is between being too passive or too aggressive as a single woman?
    It can be hard to know what “waiting” looks like, what “putting yourself out there” looks like,” what “dropping the hanky” looks like, and what pursuing a man looks like. Not to mention what the right approach is for your specific situation.
    It doesn’t have to be this confusing!
    In this episode, I discuss why you should look for a man (husband), HOW to do this, and what it looks like when you’re looking for a husband!

    #177: From Single to Married in 4 Months (Part 2) - A Conversation With My Former Client, Arlyn

    #177: From Single to Married in 4 Months (Part 2) - A Conversation With My Former Client, Arlyn

    Check out today’s episode with my former client, Arlyn, who’s been married for over a year now!
    Arlyn was the type of woman who genuinely loved her single life (a little too much!), but became a converted skeptic and is now loving married life with her husband.
    I have so many great questions for her about her single-to-married season:

    … what her biggest roadblocks were,
    … how she met her husband,
    … how she knew he was the right person for her,
    … and what changes she had to make in order to move toward marriage.
    I also asked her to share all of the big and small miracles that took place in her life prior to her even meeting her husband. The miracles didn’t stop there though, they continued into their dating relationship!
    You’ll have to tune in to learn more!
    Arlyn’s prayer list from January 2019:
    This year I vow to DO what I CAN do:
    pray & fast spend time wisely and intentionally be social and friendly trust God obey the promptings of the Holy Spirit operate in faith not fear and believe that God will SUPERNATURALLY do what I cannot do: heal my broken heart provide divine encounters with the right people multiply time and opportunities orchestrate the events of my life The acronym Arlyn referenced was created by Megan Starbuck in her book, Surprised By Marriage: A Cynics Guide To Believing In Love. I interviewed Megan in 2019; you can listen to the episode here: #80: From the Cynical Single to the Optimistic Wife (Part 1) with Megan Starbuck
    Lysa Terkeurst quote from her book, It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way, page 82:
    “Wine left on its dregs, not poured from one jar to another, means it’s been sitting in comfort for so long that it has absorbed the aroma of complacency. Winemakers at the time of Jeremiah would pour wine from jar to jar for two reasons. First, so the wine wouldn’t absorb the flavor of the vessel, and second, to rid the wine of the dregs or the sediment that would settle into the bottom and prevent the wine from being pure.”
    Daniel 2:20-21:
    “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, to whom belong wisdom and might. He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.”

KaitDP ,

And overdue review of praise!

Great podcast for self evaluation and relationship wisdom! If you are ready to get real and face some harsh truth about yourself (as well as gain priceless and profound insight for a healthy relationship 😉)this podcast is for you! Single or dating, you got to think about some of these things! Thank you, Starr!

Ray Johnsong ,

Amazing

The first podcast that addresses embracing single seasons, while desiring married life. I feel corrected but not judged. She tells the truth we need to hear with scriptural base. I finally started studying the Bible to see what it says about my true identity. Which lead me to confess unknown sins, and the things that have been separating me from God. This lead me to study the scriptures, the free online guide taught me to study scripture personally. First time I felt hope in the area of finding a mate in a long time. And I think it’s because my relationship with God feels it’s being mended. Thank you Starr, I thank God for this podcast.

Finally guest that are single

I love Starr but it was hard when she’s married and never experience online dating which so many of us are doing. I’m really happy that she added some guests who are single and navigating online dating.
