Purpose dating relationships
And then it is on to the next chapter in the relationship journey.... I will only date a man that I think is long term relationship or marriage material. Not sweating the small stuff and having a good sense of humour is key. And I do think it a good idea to be in at least one long term serious relationship before getting married.
And I don't mind being single for long periods of time if I don't meet up with a man that I am attracted to AND think is relationship material. As is having similar personal hygiene habits (non-smoking is included in this), partying styles, morals and long term life goals etc...^^^ This is me. I have no regrets about my romantic past and with each failed relationship, I learned how to sort out my priorities and do it better.
It hurts my heart every time I hear one of my single friends say, “I’m enjoying being single right now.” If we’re not careful, those words can be decrypted to mean “I’m enjoying my life of selfishness.” Part of the reason many people are choosing a life of singleness is because some singles ministries make being single fun and exciting.
So as your being a woman in a 6 year relationship with your boyfriend, how long term should one be with another before marrying? If it isn't going somewhere fast, they get restless.
WILL present.and clear Later on, you come to a point where you have gained enough self knowledge/confidence.well as mastering all those "desired" traits which you are looking for in someone.start attracting(unless you still aren't listening to the flashing red lights) the kind of people who may "fit" exactly what you are seeking.. And I do think it a good idea to be in at least one long term serious relationship before getting married. I think that my sex drive is just fine, but I am only interested in making love, and I'm not interested in having sex for the sake of fun or physical release or ego boosting. Otherwise, all my life I've had many great male platonic friends, and from spending time with them, I've gotten a good sense of what sort of personalities and traits I prefer in a boyfriend.
And with time will come that one person who stands out amongst all the rest.. I have no regrets about my romantic past and with each failed relationship, I learned how to sort out my priorities and do it better. I feel there are many very enjoyable things to do in life, not just having sex. And I would never date a man that thought having sex and looking at porn was the most enjoyable activity in his life. So I haven't needed to do any actual field research by dating lots of different men in order to achieve the same purpose.
If you’ve been in the Christian dating scene for awhile, you’ve probably heard the acronym DTR, also known as “define the relationship.” I wholeheartedly believe this term would have never been coined if singles were intentionally communicating their feelings already.
We wouldn’t need to have a DTR if we were dating with purpose, dating with marriage in mind as the end goal.
