While dating look for someone who knows the Lord, someone you can be friends with forever, someone who knows what love is and knows how to love, someone who is giving & caring, someone you can have some fun with, someone you enjoy talking to, someone that supports you but does not enable you, someone who will compromise, a person that will speaks words of affirmation and encouragement, that is compassionate, that is clothed with humility, that does not gossip or slander, someone who prefers you over themselves, and someone that will pray together with you.
…….and then be that person yourself.

Realize that "I Love You" is an outward expression. You may love what somebody does for you, and you may fall in love, but when you say those special 3 words, back it up by expressing it through your actions. Show your love by giving it externally. Meet your spouses or significant others emotional needs where they need it. Be thoughtful and take the time to do and say the things that will communicate to them that you love them. It takes time to find out what things to say and do that will exhibit your love for someone else, this is one reason why it is important in dating to get to know someone before you plunge off into a more intimate relationship with them. Your dates will demonstrate to you what they are made of, if your perception is clear. As you are dating look for loving character attributes, look for giving people, seek out singles who are not just dating for sexual relations. Temporary gratification in dating relationships will only lead to long term difficulties. Everyone has faults and shortcomings, so don’t be looking for perfect singles, but instead be looking for healthy dating singles who are searching for the meaningful togetherness bond of their life. © 2008 Jon Morgan RiverSongs.com
