I KNOW WHAT I WANT
So, a lot of stuff has been going through my head since I started this ring worthy journey. I've really been contemplating what I expect from a man now. I mean, I've always had expectations, but these are requirements now as opposed to them being options. I'm such a giver in my relationships. Never expecting anything in return. But now I see that a true, bona fide, solid relationship is a give-give situation where both parties seek the best interest of the other. Selfishness and love can not co-exist. So with that in mind, here is where I am now: I KNOW WHAT I WANT. And (saying to myself again) these are requirements now as opposed to options. I'm going to list a few things here and as I go on in the J, I'll give a break down or elaborate a little more on them. I'm also going to elaborate on some things from my end too because it's a two way street. So here goes...
FIRST THINGS FIRST
He has to love the Lord. I don't mean just go to church. I mean he has to have a heart for God.
I have to see in him that Divine love that I'm used to receiving from God and my father.
He has to be able to take care of me
I have to feel safe enough to trust him with my life.
I have to look at him and see husband, not just some fella that I'm dating.
ETA: He has to know how to fight. I don't mean physically. He has to know how to fight the enemy.
Honestly, I think those are probably the core things that I'm looking for right now, or should I say, expect. I'm going to elaborate on those points a bit more later but just wanted to share what's been on my heart as of late. Thanks for listenin'.
Have a great weekend ladies.
