Dating advise for teenage girls
(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.
As women, we can always imitate Mary as the perfect example of womanhood.
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.
It’s tough to know when to set rules and when to give freedom, when to bend and when to stand firm, when to intervene and when to let live.
It’s no coincidence that the creation story in Genesis builds in beauty and is crowned with the creation of Eve.
Suddenly, hormones are raging, romantic feelings are developing, and, of course, it doesn’t stop there.
Before you know it, your teen may be entering the dating world.
Knowing that you were uniquely created, with your own beauty and mystery, will help you “guard your heart” and not feel like you have to share every detail of your life early in the dating process. That’s why every fairy tales have the prince chasing after the princess, not the other way around.
Knowing that God wants us to love others will guide you to be respectful and thoughtful on a date. It is our job as women to let a guy prove himself worthy of getting to know who we really are.
