Catholic girls and dating
I echo my husband’s sentiment and think the most important thing for a girl to do on a date is to remember she has great dignity and worth.Before a girl even says yes to a date, she must know that she is a beautiful, perfect creation of God.Break-ups are always tough, but they’re even harder when the person you’ve been dating tells you that they’re ending things because God told them to. Someone once ended things with me by saying, “It’s what God wants” – and I can 100% say I’m glad that didn’t work out, but I wish she wouldn’t have played the God card.I would have preferred that she just tell me how she was feeling.
It’s not a bad thing to want to impress others, but our ultimate goal in dating shouldn’t be to please the guy who asked us out. God created women intentionally, unique within all of creation.Q: Your husband’s last blog How to Take a Girl on a Real Date had great advice for guys, but what about the other way around? He says if they do this then they will never have a bad date. A: The number one thing Brian stresses for guys to do on a date is to uphold the dignity of a woman. Dating is an awesome, terrible, challenging, great, heartbreaking institution. It can leave you floating on air or crashing back to earth.The Situation: Things seem to be going pretty well – and then all of a sudden it ends with one line: “It’s not you, it’s God.” Sometimes, well-intentioned Catholics will use God to get out of a relationship they don’t want to be in anymore. Those are both decisions that we made for ourselves, but they sound way better if God told us to do it.
