So we all have questions when it comes to dating and beyond. We have questions like who should we be dating? When should we date someone? What should we do on dates?
Usually, we just ask: Are they hot and funny?
We need to be asking more than just those few surface questions.
Today I’m going to try to answer how we know when a person is someone that we should be dating. So here are 4 ways to know when someone is date-able.
1. They Pursue God More Than Anything Else
When we look at people that we think we have the potential to date, the first question to ask is whether or not they are pursuing God. If they are not pursuing God in their life, what makes you think that they will have the same values as you? What makes you think that they will have the same boundaries you have? “In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:” Philippians 2:5
2. They Have (Clean) Fun
When someone can have clean fun and be a fun person to be around, it brings everyone in the room joy and a smile. If you are constantly fighting or angry at that person, that person will not be the one that brings joy. If you can have clean fun with someone as friends, then you can have clean fun in a relationship.
3. They make an effort
This is not just liking a picture of yours or sending a Facebook message, but actually going out of their way to make an effort to treat you like Jesus would treat you. They make an effort to do well in school and to win your heart.
4. They talk positively about people
If a person is always trashing people behind their backs, what makes you think that they won’t do this to someone in a relationship? If they can uplift people and build them up, they will do so in a relationship as well.
When looking for someone to date, remember to keep Christ first! If you keep him first, all other aspects of life will fall into place.
