Q: Your husband’s last blog How to Take a Girl on a Real Date had great advice for guys, but what about the other way around? He says if they do this then they will never have a bad date.
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.
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.
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).
If we don’t know our own worth, then we may put ourselves in situations where we are looking for the guy taking us out to provide us with our sense of worth.
I echo my husband’s sentiment and think the most important thing for a girl to do on a date is to remember she has great dignity and worth.
Before a girl even says yes to a date, she must know that she is a beautiful, perfect creation of God.
We started dating when I was seventeen and we were engaged when I was eighteen.
Seventeen years later with seven children, we are happy and thriving, so I need to clarify what I mean when I say that I am opposed to teenagers dating…
It could be that he’s not interested in taking you out, or that he’s not ready in his own life for a relationship, etc.
