For example, you could have a high value for responsibility and the person you’re dating could have a high value for risk.Both values are good and not necessarily incompatible, but if not articulated and discussed, it could be a point of high conflict if the responsible person likes consistency and persistence, while the risk-taker likes changing things up and going for the impossible.When I was dating I remember constantly being smothered with that one giant question. To magically stumble upon “The One” like finding the gold at the end of a rainbow that is being carried by a unicorn with leprechaun jockey.
While you can't predict the future, you can make choices that will help guide you to relationships that are both exciting and honoring to God. As you think through potential dates, ask yourself these questions: 1. "Don't judge a book by its cover." That's how the old saying goes. (For instance: You value good grades and plan to attend college; your potential date regularly cuts classes and has no plans for life after graduation.) Do they have decent standards when it comes to the movies and TV shows they watch? Does this thought excite you or does it make you feel like you just digested a can of the aforementioned Play-Doh? And you need to have your own identity beyond your spouse.
