In order to cleave to your future husband or wife, you must leave old boyfriends and girlfriends behind. You cannot have the old and the new at the same time. You cannot have the past and the present at that the same time. You cannot have what happened to you yesterday and what is happening to you today at the same time. When it comes to finding someone to love you the way God intended, you must be willing to make the hard decisions so choose to cleave to your future.
A man needs to know that you believe in him. Don't waste his time if you don't believe he is man enough for you.
Remember to be on time for your date. This is not only courteous, but it shows your date that you care and are aware of their time.
Allow your dating relationship to grow at a slow and steady pace. God is a patient god, so you should be patient as well.
If you want to attract a godly man with standards and values, don't be loud and overbearing in speech or action. This is not attractive to a man. Your opinions do count, just seek to express them in a kind and gentle manner.
Not only do you have spiritual enemies who oppose you because you love and serve God, but you also have people who are opposed to you finding love. Resist this opposition, because you deserve to love and to be loved.
Stop trying to convince people you are a good person to date if they would only give you a chance. Christ has purchased you, and you are already redeemed therefore acceptable to Christ. Your future wife or husband will appreciate you for you.
You don't have to use the "marriage" word on your first date, but it is still a good word to have in your vocabulary for the future. When you feel the time is right, don't be afraid to talk about it with the person you hope to spend the rest of your life with.
Although they love you, your parents aren't perfect. They are human, and they make mistakes. You have your own life to live, and your own future marriage to get ready for.
It's plain and simple that if you don't actively create room in your life for love, you will most likely be alone for the rest of your life.
