The weather is heating up and so are relationships! However all suitors don’t have the best intentions and those are the ones a woman needs to look out for. A smart Christian woman wants to date a decent, like-minded, fun, forward thinking man who’s interested in a long-term relationship that leads to commitment. So don’t waste time on the flakes. Some men are super smooth talkers, so how can you tell?
4 Ways to tell if it’s a Summer Fling
- Fair weather friends? Is he a seasonal “friend” that only contacts you from time to time, like, summer, winter, or spring, then disappears until the next time he has time for you? What you want is a man who is consistent.
- Conversation. Does he talk about or make references to, or hints about sex? Or is he the type that wants you to get to know him on a personal level? ie, personal goals, work, family, friend? Or is it superficial sharing as little about himself as possible because he knows he won’t be around long? Remember you can tell a lot about a man from his conversation. For the most part let him do the talking. You do the listening while you’re sitting back looking pretty. A solid relationship centers around communication.
- What is his idea of a date? Is it Netflix and chill? Reject!! A gentleman knows how to treat a lady, is proud to have her on his arm, he values her as a woman and wants to take her out and show her off.
- Compatibility. What type of man is he? Is he Christian? Does he love God? A man’s faith is his foundation out of which all his decisions and choices flow. Do not be unequally yoked 2 Corinthians 6:14, “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?”
Characteristics of a Godly Man
He knows his place as a man. He steps up! He leads, initiates, he’s a man of action. He hates apathy and rejects passivity. Ezekiel 22:30, “I searched for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand in the gap before me for the land, so that I would not destroy it. But I found no one.”
A Godly man stands strong when he is challenged!
A Godly man judges his actions against the Word of God at all times.
A Godly man exercising headship makes decisions based on everyone’s highest good, not just his own gain.
A Godly man is first the servant of all. His heart is committed to his wife and family above all else, save for God.
