Teen dating advice for guys
I’ve been talking to a lot of younger guys lately about women and dating.Often I find myself being very jealous of these guys, even when they’re screwing up and making all the usual mistakes.We may try to act or look a certain way so that our date likes us.It’s not a bad thing to want to impress others, but our ultimate goal in dating shouldn’t be to please the guy who asked us out. God created women intentionally, unique within all of creation.(Think: do you want him to call you at night and find out how your day went? (I wouldn’t know what that’s like because my husband Brian’s jokes are always fresh, insightful, and well-delivered.) Keep conversations going by asking questions or sharing your own experiences.Most of this will come naturally when we find someone we’re compatible with.Similar to the magnificence of Heaven, her worth can be likened to the “pearl of great price” that the man went in search of and gave up everything for (Matthew -46).
We should look to her as our role model and constant inspiration for living out our feminine genius. In a “service of love.” It was through this service of love, to God and others, that she was able to experience in her own life all that God had planned for her. It’s not like she went on a lot of dates before she finally met Joseph. She was able to love and serve others, because she knew God loved her first.But what if you’ve done all this, and the guy still seems like he doesn’t get the hint you’d like to go out with him and you really want to?Then you could try saying something like, “You know, if you asked me out on a date, I would say yes.” This could help diminish the fear a nervous guy has in asking you out.This does not mean that every guy who asks us out will be up to the task.It does not mean that we’ll like every guy who does treat us well. That’s why the guy asks us: so that we can respond, graciously and politely, with either yes or no. I tend to believe that the majority of the time, if a guy is not asking you out, then there is a reason for it.
