Dating advice for adults dating a mermaid
That's not tomorrow, but neither are you simply out to have a good time while it lasts. Take your time, enjoy the walk, but know there is a destination at the end of the path. Our friends should make us better people, but don't try to be someone you're not, because it's not true and it's not sustainable.
Also, seek romantic relationships with those that share your faith, and avoid relationships with those that don't. Seek those that encourage you to be more Christ-like.
God designed us for fellowship, but it's confusing when relationships don't come together or come together too fast.
So how can we be good dates for serious relationships?
There may be people that you love who would like to see you find a relationship quickly, but don’t feel pressured to comply.
Choosing the person with whom you want to spend your life should be a selective process. Relationships are built over time, and should never be rushed into, neither because of your parents nor because you feel the senior scramble pressure before graduation. If you've got someone in mind, feel free get to know each other in group settings. If you are in too much of a hurry then you will be tempted to settle for less than God desires for you.
Seek those who share or affirm your passions--it's a natural platform for intimacy.
Your partner is broken too, and you will step on each other's toes.
Expect a little conflict, and decide to treat relationship missteps as opportunities to learn and grow together.
Are you growing and practicing faith together, in worship, prayer, and service?
Are you comfortable, tender, and responsible in each other's space?
You need deepening connections in all these areas, not just one. Talk about them and make plans explicitly on how you can grow together appropriately if needed.
