As some of you may have noticed, my posts over the last year have evolved from devotionals into articles about love, marriage, dating and relationships in general. This has always been a passion of mine and I am so thankful that I have been blessed with the incredibly opportunity to publish a book with Zondervan publishing company, writing about the things I love. about a month ago I had plans for a dinner date with another couple where I live. he was going to meet my friends! & he asked about it a few days before to confirm. Then the day before he went to doctor for a wrist injury (from a few months ago) & got painkillers & ended up sleeping most of date night away. He didnt contact me till 7pm that night & then was so out of it he didnt mention anything about the date!
Like all other couples, you and your girlfriend are bound to have your fair share of fights and arguments. But you will have to be extra cautious while handling petty little relationship arguments because your words could shatter your girlfriend’s already low confidence.
Strong couples accept each other just the way they are, they don’t try to change each other. Love your partner for how unique they are, not the way you want them to be or how someone else is. You are with your partner because of their individuality, never forget that.
Yet sadly, women offer themselves up to the male gatherer, even though he has lost his instinct for honest romance and true commitment. Courting women isn’t part of the gatherers’ paradigm. He believes relationships should be easy and uncomplicated. Easy come, easy go. His expectations do not mirror the truth, which is that anything worth having requires time and effort to have.
This is where trust comes in. It helps you get back to the real reasons behind your relationship. It helps you realize whether the person standing in front of you is actually worth the effort. And it helps you distinguish between the people who you’ll have a lifelong connection with and the people who will eventually leave.
Living and working together, you are exposed to your partner’s way of thinking and seeing things on a daily basis. You also have to account for it and take it into consideration, including the way they think about YOU as a life partner and as a professional. The opinion of someone who means a great deal to you is the best motivation when comes to reflecting on your own abilities and finding areas to improve on.
