And as I look back on past relationships, I can see why Matt and I are the best match compared to others we each dated.
Ever had these thoughts about someone you are dating? Too many of my friends are finding themselves there now too.
I can’t say that I’m an expert on relationships, but if there is one thing that I feel like God taught me during my dating years (and it took about three years too many for me to learn this) it is that you should never settle for less than God’s best.
I know that sounds harsh, but let me explain my theory on Christian dating. But I do believe that if you are seeking God’s will about who you date, He will lead you to someone that is a true fit for you.
I don’t mean that your future spouse will be perfect or that you will think alike or always agree on everything. But I do believe that if you seek God’s guidance, He will lead you to the person who is going to be the match for you.
However, once I put God in charge of my love life, a funny thing happened.
I began to see in Matt several of those “husband material traits” that I had been searching for with other guys.When friends began to point out other red flags about our relationship, I took some time to seriously seek God’s will on the matter.I’d been struggling with making a decision about this particular relationship for at least a year.It was after this that God began unfolding the events that led me to start dating Matt, the man that would become my husband.We had met in college and built a solid friendship through the years, but I had not considered him in a romantic way (although he repeatedly let me know that he was somewhat interested in me).I ran down the partial list in my head and realized they were all there. As I began to observe his life and how he interacted with others, as well as how wonderfully he always treated me, I decided that there could really be something here.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
