I'm at that age where I'm old enough to enter courtship and young enough to stay single for a few more years.
This year, I decided to stay single and pursue God. I've been in relationships before and I learned that without God in the centre of my relationships, they crumble. So before I jump into a relationship with a guy, I want to have a tight relationship with God.
That being said, what kind of men do I look for? (Since it's Valentines.)
#1 He must love God more than he loves me. Enough said.
#2 He must have dreams and goals in life. A man that does not settle for mediocrity but strives to be better as a person and in his career.
#3 He must be older but not more than 5 years.
#4 He must be honest, faithful, and the head our family.
#5 Bonus: A gamer. Because if we don't have an activity we enjoy doing together, we can game!
I didn't set his physicality because.. well, obviously he has to be taller than me and has an active lifestyle.
All these criteria I set knowing I'm doing the same. I'm learning to love God more, I have dreams and goals in life, I'm bettering myself as a person to be more honest and faithful, and I am getting into a healthy and active lifestyle. I won't ask something out of someone if I cannot achieve it myself.
Getting into a relationship is not a game for me, and when I find a man, I intend to marry him. Call me old school, but that keeps me from flings and unwanted heartbreaks.
So yea, now that this is out in the open, the next time I meet someone and attempt to compromise my stated points, I would remember that it's out in public and I should not go back on my written words.
Happy Valentines day everyone! Have a lovely day :)
