I know a lot of single Christians are trying to find the right match for them. It can be tough in a world that doesn’t have the same standards as we do. So what exactly should we be looking for in the opposite sex? None of us want to divorce, and the next person we kiss should be the last person we kiss.
Just a heads up that these are in order of importance and are just the essentials. Everyone has little things they like and don’t like.
1. He/She Needs To Share The Same Faith
If the other person isn’t a Christian as well… then why even bother? You guys will constantly butt heads and there is a very good chance your morals won’t line up. In fact if they are an atheist or “agnostic” then it’s likely they won’t have any moral standards whatsoever. They will sway with the world. The Bible even tells us to avoid being with non-believers in a marriage.
2 Corinthians 6:14
“Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?”
2. You Get Along And Can Be Friends
What seems like a no brainer, actually isn’t to some. Lots of us will date others who we don’t even like for many reasons. You like the pre-martial sex, you feel pressured to stay with them, you don’t want to be alone, or whatever reason you date anyway.
Why you want to date someone you won’t marry is beyond me. Even if you do marry them then why would you want to join the legions of people who get divorced or are unhappily married? Simply put, if a day where you guys don’t have sex or argue seems impossible, then you aren’t really friends.
3. You Two Are Attracted To Each Other
Do I really need to explain this one? If they aren’t attractive but meet #1 and #2 then just be good friends.
