1. Trust God and suspend your expectations.

If you’re a Christian, you know how important it is to have faith in God! Don’t drive yourself mad if you haven’t met the right person yet, or if he or she doesn’t call or text the day after your first date. Don’t try to control every aspect your future. Instead, keep busy with your own life and let things happen naturally over time.

2. Stay focused on the positive aspects of being single and dating.

To bring spirituality into your single life, look for something good in all your dates. Find the balance between staying in tune with your gut instincts and remember most people show you who they want you to believe they are in the first 3-6 months. Remember their is power in your tongue, so speak LIFE!

3. Reveal who you are and what you love about your spiritual life.

The more open and honest you are about who you are, the more your dates will open up about who they are. Let yourself be known spiritually, socially, emotionally, and professionally. If someone cannot accept you for who you are then they don’t deserve to have you. Never camouflage for love.

4. Build a strong friendship before falling helplessly in love.

Choose to keep your relationship on a friendship level. The longer you can remain ‘just friends’, the better your relationship will be if you decide to get married at some point.

5. Be positive about dating, love, and marriage.

Negative beliefs about relationships hold you back from letting love in, which will stop you from building a strong relationship. Do not make your new mate pay for the mistakes of past lovers
