Dating Is Not Confusing
There was a time when I would literally spend hours analyzing a single text message. And this single text message maybe contained five words. Other times, I would find myself scrolling through an entire text conversation trying to decipher if this guy was interested in me or not. Why do we do this? We say that the dating world is so confusing, but I think we cause the confusion ourselves. I’ve had conversations with loved ones who expressed to me how complicating dating can be, but when they explained their specific situations, it really didn’t seem that complicated at all. Scary, perhaps. Vulnerable, you bet. But complicating? Not so much.
Have you ever actually paused, taken a moment, and thought about what kind of person you hope to marry? Do you realize the importance their values and morals will have on your life, and (God willing) your future children? God wants us to take these questions to Him. He wants to be apart of these details in our lives. But sometimes, we become so consumed by what the world has to offer us. In a world full of loneliness, it can be so blinding that we often cling to the right now as opposed to waiting for the not yet. I’ve been there. I get it.
Is It Worth It?
I’m saving myself for marriage—five words that have the potential to send a man running, or at least that’s what I thought. Prior to meeting my husband, I often lacked the confidence to say these words out loud. I questioned how serious a relationship needed to be in order to share this part of me, and at the same time, wondered if he would even desire me because of it. The crazy part is that I’ve always believed that sex is meant for marriage, that it truly is special and worth waiting for. But at the time, I allowed the world and it’s ways to get inside my head. My advice?
