Go ahead and admit it. You have this picture perfect idea of the man you will someday marry. Hey, that’s just part of being a girl. We tend to daydream and try to build this man up inside of our heads so when we meet him, we know 100% that he meets up to EVERY standard. However, some girls can take it much too far. If this guy you meet qualifies for you to date him, but he has brown eyes instead of blue, you will turn away because obviously he isn’t the one God had planned for you because when you prayed you asked God for a blue eyed boy. How crazy does that sound? So crazy! So, let me encourage you to NOT build this picture perfect guy up in your mind because as much as you love him and he loves you, you are both going to let each other down at some point or another. You’re setting yourself up for disappointment if you think this man will be perfect simply because no one but Jesus is perfect. No one but Jesus can satisfy you like the Father. I do think it is good to have a standards list. For example, say you will only date/marry Christians. Never compromise that! If you believe that, stick with it. Make sure the man you date or marry loves Jesus more than you because when the two of you put God first, everything will fall into place. I’ve heard this my whole life: Never date someone you don’t picture marrying. That is an awesome piece of advice. Goodnight girls! God bless!

That is so true! I def have an idea of what I would want my “dream guy” to be! But when I fantasize about these things, and what life may be like, my image (his physical image) of him is constantly changing. He may have brown hair one time, then red the next. I think this is my brains way of saying “he could have any of these features” haha I know that’s stupid but that’s just me 🙂 Of course I have standards. My parents have always told me to have high standards, so that’s what I do! I’ve also heard that you shouldn’t date someone you can’t picture yourself marrying. It’s so good! And AMEN to the fact that only God can fully satisfy you. You aren’t perfect, I’m not perfect, and neither is anyone else! If you expect your future husband to be perfect, then you are just blinding yourself! He may be considered “perfect” in your eyes, but he will never be truly PERFECT like Jesus is 🙂
