reputable dating services online - Great christian dating books

I believe that God pairs us up with people that complement the gifts, talents, and personalities that He has given us – if we let Him. The guys I dated before I began dating my husband were not all bad guys. We genuinely cared about each other and had fun together.

But in each relationship there were things that didn’t feel quite right.

There are things floating around that have little or nothing to do with the Bible.

Ever had these thoughts about someone you are dating? Too many of my friends are finding themselves there now too.

I can’t say that I’m an expert on relationships, but if there is one thing that I feel like God taught me during my dating years (and it took about three years too many for me to learn this) it is that you should never settle for less than God’s best.

Nowhere, however, does it say that God picked out a spunky brunette whom he's waiting to spring on you at the right moment. When it comes to God, I'm pretty careful about saying what he does or doesn't do.

But I do know this—if you rely on this idea too much, your dating life will get really confusing.

In some relationships, I found myself compromising some of my values to be more in line with that guy’s.

In other relationships, I began to think that some of the things I had wanted in a husband were perhaps more wishful thinking than things that could actually be.

There are plenty of them, but let's focus on what I believe are the top five myths that make dating harder for Christian men.

Myth #1: "God has one woman picked out for you to marry.

You are destined to be with her, and God will guide you to her." Good luck finding this one in the Bible.

There is plenty of stuff about God's will for his people, God wanting good things for you, and God's ultimate plan.

I believe it’s important to work on your relationship from the very beginning to prevent future problems. Today, I’m sharing with you some great books to help you grow as a couple — whether dating or married.
