As a socially awkward college student who rarely met dates in person, I found that online dating was one of the first places people ever validated me for my looks.All the matches and messages made me feel like a social butterfly, chatting up all the hottest guests at a house party, not the wallflower examining the host's bookshelf to avoid eye contact with everyone.The initial excitement generated by the prospect of a first date feels great.As the days tick by and the upcoming event becomes more real, many people find themselves generating enough nervous energy to power a small city (or at least a thriving hamlet).When they were growing up, I told them I would always answer their phone calls.It didn’t matter if I was in a meeting, on a project or taking a nap. I, of course, hoped there was a good reason behind the call, but I would’ve answered the phone regardless.As believers in Christ, we have limitless reasons to be confident.

For example, don’t let things that happen in the run up to the date effect your perception of how the date will go.
It’s all too easy to let a minor infraction with a work colleague get you down, and lead to thoughts that you’re a bad person and that your date won’t like you.
So why don’t we use our faith as a source of confidence more often?
