You are looking for a woman who will not squander your income or lean toward gossip.
You are looking for a woman who will submit and obey, for there is no other way for a marriage to honor God without following the strict Biblical principles that God has laid out for us in the Bible.
Men are frustrated because they don't understand what women want from them.
Clearly it is Christ who initiates the relationship; "We love, because He first loved us" (1 John ).In my view, if you can't happily picture yourself married within a year, you're not in a position to date.Third, once you decide that you are ready to date, look to God's Word to decide the kind of person to date, and evaluate potential dating partners on those criteria, rather than relying primarily on the world's treatment of ideas like "attraction" and "chemistry." I wrote at some length on this in my article, "Brother, You're Like a Six." For you busy singles with time for only one mildly irritating column per day, the summary is this: Pick a potential dating partner with an eye toward godly manhood and womanhood — with an eye toward who would make a good husband or wife, defined by those characteristics esteems in His Word, not the ones Hollywood likes.Furthermore, the Ephesians 5 passage describes the husband as "the head of the wife." Men are called to be—created to be—leaders.This is not an empowerment that mystically comes over a man at his wedding, but part of his inherent nature.As I've written on this site before, "practice" and "recreation" are not good reasons to date.
