You seem to equate godliness and propriety in dating with a pretty narrow idea of how relationships can start.I have always taken the story of Ruth and Boaz to be an example of a woman initiating and pursuing a relationship with a godly man, and I have found it to be very freeing as a woman seeking a husband in the Christian dating world.Ruth Elizabeth Warrick (June 29, 1916 – January 15, 2005), DM, was an American singer, actress and political activist, best known for her role as Phoebe Tyler Wallingford on All My Children, which she played regularly from 1970 until her death in 2005. By writing an essay in high school called "Prevention and Cure of Tuberculosis", Warrick won a contest to be Miss Jubilesta, Missouri's paid ambassador to New York City.At the time of her death she was twenty-second on the all-time list of longest-serving soap opera actors in the United States. There she began her career as a radio singer, and met her first husband Eric Rolf.After playing Betty Hutton's sister-in-law in Let's Dance, she starred as a troubled wife looking back at her life in the religious drama Second Chance and an alcoholic wife and mother in One Too Many.
The 2fm presenter revealed that her partner Rob had popped the question New Years Eve.
Alas, as tempting as it can be — for both women and men — to read Ruth in that way, it is simply incorrect to do so.
