We are all on a journey and none of us have life figured out but the two most important questions you will every answer in your life are: Becoming a healthy individual and not settling for an unhealthy spouse will create healthy marriages that restore the standard of what family life looks like in the world today. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of falling for someone new; everything is exciting and you discover so much about yourself and the other person throughout the entire process. However, before you start picturing your life long-term with them, you might want to take a few steps back and evaluate the situation to determine if you really want to start developing feelings.We sat down as a team for 3 hours and came up with 11 questions we think would be great for you to consider before you jump into dating. We have everything we need and will never lack anything because we have a loving Father who gives freely to His children. Do you walk into a relationship and look for ways to give or do you expect everyone to serve you? This question is one ALL of us are discovering and rediscovering on a daily basis, but as a general overview, here are things you might want to know about yourself: I know who (whose) I am in Christ. We are 100% fully loved, accepted, chosen, restored, redeemed and saved.
“Any guy I fall for has to have a great sense of humor and be able to make me laugh with his jokes.” Before you start actually dating someone, consider their personality and decide whether you two laugh at the same things.
When you are hurt, rejected, or disappointed you will know how to get out what you are feeling so that manipulation, guilt trips, self-pity, and sarcasm (passive-aggressiveness) will not be weapons you reach for when in conflict. Do I know what my boundaries are and how to keep them? Are you willing to respect the boundaries of others? By life I mean, is your thought life, finances, laundry, house, schedule, etc. Giving and serving one another within relationship is a give and take.
Knowing your limitations (and those of who you’re dating) is an avenue to “protect and preserve” an individual and/or relationship. Do I have a teachable spirit and can I humbly receive feedback (even when it hurts)? Am I responsible and do I know how to take care of things? in order or are you a hot mess that jumps from one thing to another? One person should not be the only one practicing this concept.
So before you take the time to type up your original question, please do a search above to see if I’ve answered it already.
However, I get hundreds of questions and I only have time to respond to 4 of them each month.
Having a compatible personality with a potential SO is such a key element of a successful relationship.
