Christian dating the right way

But although he said his faith was important to him, attending church and reading the Bible were not high on his priority list.

I had to ask myself, “Is he really on the same page as me when it comes to my Christian faith?

And as I look back on past relationships, I can see why Matt and I are the best match compared to others we each dated.

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.

I know that sounds harsh, but let me explain my theory on Christian dating. But I do believe that if you are seeking God’s will about who you date, He will lead you to someone that is a true fit for you.

I don’t mean that your future spouse will be perfect or that you will think alike or always agree on everything. But I do believe that if you seek God’s guidance, He will lead you to the person who is going to be the match for you.

Since I had not done such a great job of choosing relationships on my own, I decided to let God choose the next one.

I wouldn’t even consider dating again until I had sought His will about the person and the relationship.

However, once I put God in charge of my love life, a funny thing happened.

I began to see in Matt several of those “husband material traits” that I had been searching for with other guys.

I’ve read many books about relationships and Christian dating. His views helped me establish my own standards regarding marriage.
