Dating the right guy
I believe that God pairs us up with people that complement the gifts, talents, and personalities that He has given us – if we let Him. The guys I dated before I began dating my husband were not all bad guys. We genuinely cared about each other and had fun together.But in each relationship there were things that didn’t feel quite right.” “If we have children, will it be important to him that they are raised by godly principles and involved in church?” It turns out we were not in sync on these issues, and I decided to end the relationship. But I began to notice subtle patterns that bothered me.A real man will value your personality, your kindness, your intelligence, and who you are as a person, in general.The things he makes you feel good about will be things that you control, not just results of getting lucky in the gene pool.

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.
Be honest enough with yourself to walk away from any situation that is dangerous to you, physically or emotionally. A true gentleman will put effort into your relationship.
Boys are generally apathetic and just look for one thing from a woman. A true gentleman will make you want to be the best version of yourself, without changing who you really are. He will strive for greatness and therefore inspire others to strive for it as well.
In some relationships, I found myself compromising some of my values to be more in line with that guy’s.
In other relationships, I began to think that some of the things I had wanted in a husband were perhaps more wishful thinking than things that could actually be.A man will not dance around answers or make excuses. In addition to the last point – there will be no mind games or manipulation in your relationship. As long as you haven’t betrayed his trust, a man will NOT be paranoid, or snoop around invading your privacy to make sure you’re not doing anything bad. A boy will project his own insecurities onto you, and like termites in a house, will eat away at the foundation of what you’ve built. If you’re at the bar together, or if she’s out with her friends, it goes without saying that your girlfriend will get hit on every once in awhile. Nothing signifies an empty shell of a man more than someone who disrespects women, animals, or children.If there is something you two need to talk about, he will talk about it. A man will be direct, to the point, and honest with you…but with kindness. Instead of letting his primate instincts prevail and beating his chest like an angry gorilla to scare off competition, a confident man will calmly make his position known, and understand that you’re still going home with him at the end of the night. A good man will treat you with the respect that you deserve, never force you to do anything you’re uncomfortable with, and never mistreat you.A man who has goals for himself, will want to be with a woman who has goals for her own life, too.
