  1. talking about marriage//future plans. unless you're REALLY sure…avoid those conversations….it's painful and hard…especially when you even planned a date ((which is approaching in 2 weeks and i'm trying not to care, but do anyway!))

    Expecting him to satisfy me and "connect" with me at every level of my heart. Only Christ can do that…Ladies…find satisfaction in God, and you will be free to love your man well because he is a gift and not a necessity. ;) Much love, Genevieve

    These are very good…'s another: making excuses for ANY of his bad behaviour (oh, he's just going through a rough time right now because of ________, oh, he had a tough time in his teen years, oh, his father had anger management problems, oh, his last girlfriend mistreated him, ooooohhhh, bbllleeecchhhhh)

    Dating a man that claimed to believe in God, and let that be “good enough” because he had everything else you were looking for. He verified several times by reading the Bible & attending church with me, but when I asked the hard questions, he confessed he wasn’t a Christian…and didn’t believe in God afterall. ASK THE HARD QUESTIONS FIRST! I fell in love with a non-believer & it was the most difficult time of my life having to try & not love him anymore. It’s still hard.

    Never let a man use God to get closer to you. It's just in my nature now to start talking about God at parties and such, one night this guy completely agreed with everything I said, convincing me that he also had a strong connection with God . Of course, nineteen year old me fell for that awful trick and now I regret spending any time with him at all. He used me. And the worst thing is, anytime we were ever fooling around I kept saying, "This isn't right. This is not right. " I just remember being so guilt-stricken the whole time and trying to express that to him and he would just ignore me and keep going. What a jerk.

    I realized last night that my biggest dating mistake has been praying for someone to come into my lie who oves me and my daughter instead of praying for someone who loves Jesus.

    My biggest pitfall of dating has been settling for men who do not have the same heart when it comes to pursuing the Lord.
