You are a beautiful woman. You have a bright future ahead you and now you’re looking for a guy to share that future with. You shouldn’t settle for just any guy. Instead, you deserve the guy who Jesus wants you to date. The kind of guy Jesus wants you to date has the following qualities:
He Loves Jesus
If he doesn’t have a relationship with Jesus, then don’t have a romantic relationship with him. If Jesus is your everything, that should show in who you date. Don’t demote the King for a prince. The Bible says that Christians shouldn’t date unbelievers (Read my blog entitled, “Why Christians Shouldn’t Date Non-Christians“). Your spouse should motivate you to become more Christ-like, but he won’t know what that looks like, if he doesn’t even know Jesus.
If a man’s favorite subject to talk about is himself, then buy him a mirror and leave him alone. That guy is not the guy for you. You deserve a man who is humble. Being humble helps when you try to solve disagreements. If he is prideful, all the problems will be your fault. If he is humble, he will be able to see where he messed up. Pass on a prideful guy, hunt for a humble guy.
He’s Open With You
It’s been said that guys have a hard time talking about feelings. Some guys find it easier, but most find it hard, including myself. However, you can still find a man who will openly talk with you. He might struggle in the beginning, but if he loves you, he will work on it for you. Communication is key in a relationship, since you need to talk about your problems. If you don’t talk about your problems, then they only get worst. Communication is key.
You’re Don’t Get Bored With Him
You’re going to spend the rest of your life together, so you better be able to have fun with them. You should be able to talk for hours and feel as though it was the best time ever. In other words, they should be all the entertainment you need. You shouldn’t need an extravagant date to have an extraordinary time. Sitting across the table from them should be what excites you the most.
He Honors His Mom
A good test of how a man will treat you in the future is by looking at how he is treating his mom in the present. You want to spend the rest of your life with him and she has already spent all his life with her. You can see how he treats a women who he deeply loves and intimately knows.
He’s Honest With You
You shouldn’t waste your time on a guy who will waste your time lying to you. He also shouldn’t keep secrets from you. If you aren’t honest, then you can’t be trusted. If you ask him a question, you need to be able to trust that he is being honest with you. If you can’t trust a man, then you can’t date that man.
He Doesn’t Smell Like A Wet Dog
This should be basic, but some guys aren’t getting the memo. If every day he doesn’t take a show and brush his teeth, then tell that dude needs to take a hike. You shouldn’t be able to detect what he had for dinner the night before on his breath. That is a no-no. If he doesn’t take care of himself, then he won’t take care of you.
He’s A Gentlemen
You are a queen and you deserve to be treated like one. Your man should want to opens your door, pulls out your chair at restaurants, pays the bill, compliments you, makes your needs more important then his own, listens when you speak, helps you put on your jacket, is in tune with your emotions, calls you rather than texts you, walks you to the front door, doesn’t rush the first kiss, and has a plan for the evening. He doesn’t do this because he sees you as weak and unable to do them. Instead, he wants to honor you and make you to feel special. His love for you is what motivates him to treat you like a queen.
You might not think that you deserve this type of guy, but you do. Don’t ever believe that lie. You are a daughter of God. You are worthy of love. You are worthy of a great guy. Never lower your standards just because you think you couldn’t get a great Godly guy. You can! And you will! God has that special someone for you. Be patient, enjoy your singleness, and focus on living for Jesus.
As you think about what you want in a Godly man, work at becoming a more Godly women for him.
What else should a Godly girl look for in a guy?
