Spiritual enlightenment is sometimes a long path to self discovery. I have learned a technique to hasten that process: Get to know yourself quicker. One way to accomplish this (if you’re single) is to join an online dating site. If you are like most people, you will find yourself going out on countless dates, some good, some bad. Through the process you will come to know the inner you, that you might not even realized existed. Since this Mr. Renaissance focuses on Christianity, I would like to recommend eHarmony. They are a safe alternative to the rough-and-tumble, dive-bar online dating sites out there (like Match.com). You can find an eHarmony promotional code and use it to get a 100% discount on their personality profiles. They also run free communication weekends wherein you can communicate with your matches for free.
