Maybe you want a solid, godly relationship but you’re feeling a little discouraged. The dating culture is just so crazy and it seems like all the good ones are taken!
Or maybe you are in a relationship but it’s a little rocky. You’re not sure how to include God in it. I mean, you want to, but you don’t even know where to start.
Or perhaps you are dating someone wonderful but noticing that it’s getting harder and harder to navigate the modern dating world (especially as a Christian).
I know that it’s getting harder and harder to know what’s okay and what’s even considered dating nowadays. There’s talking, dating, and a relationship. What’s the difference? Where do you stand?
It seems like more people hang out in the land of “it’s complicated” instead of in clarity.
But don’t you deserve confidence and clarity more than confusion and insecurity?
I want to share five dating tips from my husband’s perspective that will hopefully encourage you.
5 Dating Tips for Girls (From a Christian Guy’s Perspective)
1. Be positive
Guys don’t mind a little venting now and then, we all have our bad days! But remember not to turn him into your emotional punching bag.
A guy won’t always know what to say and won’t always handle it right. He’s a person, not perfect.
Go to God, call your mom, or ask a friend, just don’t dump it all on one guy.
“Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world.” | Philippians 2:14-15
2. Respect yourself and honor God in your own life.
Don’t demand that he respect you and then turn around and not respect or hold yourself to that same standard. Walk the walk in your private life and in your public life.
Don’t change your morals, values, or boundaries just to impress him or keep him around.
When a woman respects herself and her love for the Lord shines, it makes her 10x more attractive.
“Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.” | Proverbs 31:30
3. Take care of yourself but don’t try so hard.
We don’t care if your hair looks perfect or if you think that dress makes you look fat.
Guys can appreciate when a woman puts in a little effort to look nice but if you’re constantly looking in the mirror or being vain about how your hair looks, it’s a major turn off.
Be confident in how God made you.
