Heartbreak is never a good feeling. The thought of starting over again doesn’t always seem fun when you think about it. You wanted what you had to work. You wanted who you liked or loved to be it. You invested so much into them! You gave so much of yourself but walked away feeling like you lost something.
There are times when dating when things don’t go according to plan. You may have found yourself in a certain position where you have been either waiting for someone to fully commit or waiting for someone to show that they’re interested in you. Wherever you find yourself on the dating journey, don’t give all of your time to someone who has shown you that you are not priority!
When dating in route to getting married, there are things you should do and things you should not do. Quite naturally, if you go in with the mindset that you are confident in yourself and that you’re not going to casual date, you’re starting off on the right track. One thing we should all agree on is that the 1 exists, although you might encounter some roadblocks along the way. However, there are some things we should talk about as far as what not to do before you get married.
For starters, there is absolutely nothing wrong with you having a desire to get married and not being shy about it. I’m not saying that you’re running up to singles of the opposite sex screaming that you want to get married. I’m talking about the confidence of knowing that it will happen. I’m talking about talking about it with confidence and being unapologetic about your desire to be married.
Dating is something that has to be done before you get to marriage. Some may call it courting, but either way, you have to get to know the person through dating. Unless of course it’s an arranged marriage, but I don’t believe any of you plan on having an arranged marriage in the traditional sense of the phrase. The only one arranging it is God.
Perhaps you haven’t been on a date in a long time. Perhaps, no one has shown interest. Perhaps those who have shown interest have simply wasted your time. You may be to that place where you’re just sick and tired of being tired. You’re mentally and emotionally exhausted from this rollercoaster ride on the journey towards love.
