And if you are married to a good husband who loves your kids, even those extra 30lbs he will put on over the next few decades will not hinder your attractions towards him.
If you feel you are too young to get married, if you feel like you are too busy to marry, or if you just don’t want that level of commitment right now in your life, then I believe dating is pointless and will only get you into trouble.
You should only date if you want to see if someone is the right person to marry or not.
Some Christian women date a guy who is not a Christian thinking she will witness to him, which some refer to as missionary dating. (For more on this, read my article called “What Does the Bible Say About Missionary Dating? Never Settle, But Make Sure Your Standards Are Realistic I think one of the most common pieces of dating advice I hear given to Christian women is, “Never settle.” Of course I agree with this.
The problem I see is that a lot of women’s’ lists are just too long. As a Christian woman, you can’t stand for guys who have no respect for God, for you, or for themselves.
So I will just have to settle for these 6 pieces of advice.
Lastly, I’m obviously a man, so I’m not trying to pretend to know what it’s like to be an unmarried Christian single woman.
But at least let him try before you totally shut him down. If you want something bad enough, you might be gullible enough to take their bait.
A guy who wants you to think he is perfect and doesn’t have any major flaws is going to really get mad at you one day when you finally point out something negative or you let him know he hurt your feelings.
As a Christian woman, I know your first priority is to please God, which is why you have thought so much about this whole dating thing.
While God doesn’t tell us everything we might want to know about relationships in a clear written format, he did make it very clear that Christians are not supposed to marry unbelievers (1 Corinthians , 2 Corinthians ).
With every box you need checked, you are eliminating the likelihood of actually meeting someone like that. All I would say is that you just need to be careful that your standards and expectations are realistic.
