“There's nothing better than being single in summer - long balmy evenings are perfect for casual fun and flings." Burton isn’t alone in her seasonal cravings.Samantha Moore, a 24-year-old from Hertfordshire, has been a seasonal dater for almost a decade and confessed to being single for just one Christmas since the age of 16. By summer, she admits she’s ready to be single again, blaming the hot weather and its synonymously fizzing social scene for her devil-may-care attitude. Whether by conscious choice or by years of overexposure that has conditioned an addiction, many men view women as objects to be consumed. So what happens when the way we view women is completely formed in fantasy then we get up from the computer to interact with women in real life? If you’re married, these ensuing problems are obvious. The answer is obvious, yet it escapes so many men lost in our sex-and-skin-saturated culture.We obviously need to completely cut off the pornography as the “professor” who wired us to turn women into pieces of meat like this in the first place.But beyond the elimination of this force, we need to allow God’s healing and corrective touch to rebuild the way we were designed to view women. Would you want someone lusting over your daughter the way you lust over women?
As winter descends and dark, frosty nights await, the hunt for a yuletide lover begins.God did not create women to be consumed, nor did he create you to consume them.So next time you see a cute girl, don’t dehumanize her by placing her sole value on her physical appearance.This pattern is more than a simple by-product of fickle millennial dating culture, it’s a common trend that's been labelled “Seasonal Dating Disorder” (SDD).Just like “ghosting” involves no supernatural apparitions; SDD is not a medically-recognised disorder, however, it is no less socially prevalent.
