CAFE SOLO: The Dating Project

  • MajorChange 656 East Mandevilla Way Azusa, CA, 91702 United States (map)


Singles of all ages wonder why it’s so hard to meet, date and marry today. In fact, fifty percent of America is single and fewer people are committing to marriage, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2014. Dating has been replaced by “hooking up” and “hanging out,” making the traditional days of “courtship” obsolete. Or, has it?

A few years ago, one of the most popular professors of Philosophy at Boston College, Kerry Cronin, noticed this decreased dating trend among her undergrad students.  “And I thought, ‘Well, this is crazy.’  So I started asking students to go on what I refer to as ‘traditional dates’ as part of an extra-credit assignment.” However, the act of going on a date was more complicated than she thought.  A combination of the prevalent “hook up” culture, as well as the preferred method of social interaction (texting) had all but obliterated skills of basic social interaction. And, so THE DATING PROJECT began, and her class quickly became one of the most popular courses at Boston College. THE DATING PROJECT film follows Professor Cronin and five modern-day singles (ages 20 – 40) in their own quest to find authentic love and meaningful relationships.

We are a tribe of women participating or related to the Stone to Flesh School of the Heart who want to walk fiercely in the Father's love, submitting to the movements of the Holy Spirit and submerging our hearts in the mercy of Jesus. Through prayer, sharing intimately about our dreams and the reality, supporting each other's paths and sinking deeper into the creeds of our faith, we want to bring back the sense of wonder, wisdom and creativity to the world robbed of passionate love. We are foremost beloved daughters of the Father, and only from there we identify ourselves also as leaders, moms, creatives, wives, entrepreneurs, healers, visionaries and missionary disciples. We dream that no Catholic woman will feel alone, unsupported or isolated in her life. Read more HERE.

Why are we doing it? Because we long for frequent real life connection, sisterhood, support and breakthroughs in our daily lives. Because exchanging of opinions is not enough. Because inspiration without digging deep and praying through issues is not enough. Because we long for the fullness of Jesus’ reward to be poured out NOW. He died so we can live and we want to breath His Spirit into our circumstances, families and our destiny.
