Every once in a while we check our blog stats to see what people googled (or yahooed, asked, or binged) to get here. There are a few we can’t share (for your sanity), but here are a few that warranted a response.
how far is a long distance call
Bit outside our purview, but okay. Typically if the area code (first 3 digits) is different, the call is long distance. Try just dialing the last seven numbers (something like 555-1212); if it goes through, it’s a local call. If you’re using a cell phone, you probably don’t have to worry about it.

courtesy in comparison with casualness is:
especially useful when you aren’t close to the other person. Both are great values (politeness and intimacy) and good things to strive for, but usually at different times. When in doubt, go for courtesy.
what an orthodox christian girl can do with her boyfriend sex
Oh honey. That’s a big question, and you probably want to have a chat with your priest (I know, it’s awkward, but do) and an older Orthodox girlfriend who’s both wise and a little blunt.
My advice: always know exactly what you will and won’t do before you walk into the room, and if you hear yourself trying to justify doing something take a step back, because that’s a bad sign. Don’t let yourself make excuses, and don’t let your lust talk you into things. Giving in to lust leads to more lust, not less. Own your choices. If you’d be concerned to see your little sister make the same choice when it’s her turn, then don’t do it. Live with integrity. And always, always, always take very good care of yourself.

accepting myself orthodox
You are loved exactly as you are. Of course we must all strive to become more godly, so I don’t want to tell you that modern tosh of “oh it’s all good exactly as you are.” But you’re a child of God, and you’re loved, and the rest is icing.
