Be so passionate about God that even if you were to remain single you would be fine. Know God and love God. Be complete in yourself, do not look for someone to complete you.
Know your worth; love yourself, build your self-confidence, believe in yourself. You deserve nothing less than the best. Ain’t nothing worse than an insecure individual, it sucks the life out of any relationship.
Give your list to God, make sure your desires are in line with what God wants. Make sure your list prioritizes the things that will matter in the long run.
Let your past experiences guide you in choosing your spouse. Don’t make the same mistakes over and over again. If a particular trait didn’t work the first two times most definitely it wouldn’t work the third time around. Be wise! Recognize recurring negative signs!
Things wouldn’t always go as planned; loneliness may step in, hormones will rage. Keep yourself occupied and make sure you stay focused on your goals.
Ask God to help you to choose the right person. Pray for discernment. Pray that those with ill intentions will be steered clear from you and that you would know when you’ve met the right person.
Don’t be scared to state your intentions and your expectations.
Make sure you’re on the same page especially where your relationship with God is concerned. Do not be unequally yoked! Get someone who can be strong enough to lift you up in your weak moments and vice versa.
Be yourself, be fun and confident!
If it’s been years and you can’t decide whether you’re ready to get married then you might just not be ready.
Long courtships don’t necessarily mean you’ll know the person better. You have to trust God with that part of your future, some people are great at hiding things. Pray for God to reveal all the deal breakers before you tie the knot.
