Christian dating rules for women

They were too emotionally entrenched in the experience and could not see how they were creating some of the dynamics. You will probably see a difference in how people interact with you.2.

I myself was a victim of this until I recognized my part in this process and then I began dating and eventually married a man who treats me the way I deserve. Let go of the self defeating thoughts holding you back.

I see women who continually find men who, for whatever reason, never step up to treat them the way they deserve.

It means dating someone who meets the values and goals you have for a future spouse (more on that later).

Your children’s safety should be your number one priority. Always set aside time alone with your kids as well as alone time with your mate. Hopefully, this is someone you can see yourself marrying. The goal is to make your children comfortable and eventually grow to love your new guy. Children can easily see this as “trying to replace their dad” and will only grow to resent your mate. I know women who have stayed in iffy relationships “for the kids.” This makes even less sense when you’re not married.

You want someone who will encourage and instill the same values in your children. Change and loss are part of life, things everyone has to deal with.

That would be awesome, but it’s not always realistic. If you are a Christian, God isn’t a piece of your pie. Why date someone who doesn’t even have God as a piece of the pie? Pull over at the closest gas station and decide what you want in a future spouse. Your list is designed to give you a framework for dating, not be a checklist for it. Your heart and the holiness of marriage are too important to flippantly give away because you are frustrated, impatient, or settling.

Many parents set rules for their Christian teens about dating.

Casual or purposeless dating has no benefit for Christians. We are designed to know why we do stuff and where we are going. Now, please, please, please don’t be a freakish weirdo. It involves sharing personal struggles and vulnerability. If you believe God is preparing you for foreign missions, is it important the person you marry shares this passion? If you love the Cowboys and your future spouse loves the Packers, is it important to work through this before marriage?
