I text all my beloved single friends today to wish them a Happy Valentine’s Day and to tell the that they are cherished. I heard back from all of them – except three men – one who is quite shy, one who is scared of single women and one who is gay! All the women – most of them Christians – responded in a flash and seemed to really appreciate the thought. Two nice men responded – one Christian, one not, and saw the gesture as it was meant to be seen – as friendly rather than flirty. Not that flirtation is a bad thing. Depends how it is done and to what purpose.
