How to…

Catch a church boy.

Yesterday  I was talking with a few single ladies at the church I attend, Journey Church in midtown Manhattan.
And I was explaining my guidelines for catching a man. Now I must add a disclaimer, I have never tried them out myself. But I kinda think the logic behind the list is pretty sound and can work at any church in the world, if applied appropriately.

Step #1: Enlist the clergy.
No one quite has access to the masses like the pastors, preachers, priests and teachers at a church. It’s in their job description to know people. So if you see a mysterious hottie at church and wanna know more… get that pastor involved. I’m not promising results, but you will have a better chance of at least getting a name.

Step #2: Always wear proper footwear.
Listen. You never know when you’re gonna need to make a mad dash to the elevator or to the receiving line so that you can make yourself known or invite the guy to Sunday School or Fellowship time or your Growth Group. Don’t ruin your chances by wearing 5″ heels. Go with a nice comfy flat. You will be able to move much quicker and safer. Because the last thing you want to do is twist your ankle in the pursuit of a possible Mr. Right!

And Step 3: Bring a snack.
There’s no long drawn out explanation for why this is a good idea. It just makes sense. If the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, well then a well placed granola bar could be a life saver. 😉 just sayin’.

So there you have it. The mini list. There are many more steps but I don’t want to overwhelm you. If this doesn’t work…then it’s on to steps 4-15.
And for any single men out there… there is an entirely different list for you. So just ignore this. Though the snack thing always makes sense!
Happy hunting!
