Times are so very different now than when my husband and I were dating, it makes me a little sad. People hide behind lies or surface conversations, and you never seem to get below thier surface. You meet online, you text instead of talk. Communication is vital, and face to face conversations allow you to see, instead of assume someone’s emotion from a txt msg. Phone calls allow you to hear emotion as well. Don’t allow someone who only wants to text, to get close to you. Their either not really serious or they have something to hide.
For your own good, take time to get to really know a person before you allow yourself to fall for someone you may think you know. Don’t be afraid to ask questions you need answers to for fear of upsetting someone, that’s if you are dating for the purpose of finding a life long mate (marriage). Involve God in your relationship, ask Him to show you all things that may be hidden, and then “watch as well as pray”. As for yourself, “Let it all hang out”, all of who you are, and see if they can handle the real you, especially if you know you have unresolved issues, issues that may have even ruined a promising relationship in the past (some things come only by prayer and fasting).
What I am saying is, don’t be a deceiver and don’t allow yourself to be deceived. The truth is always better than a lie. So go ahead, and let them get to know who you really are! And ask God to show you who they really are as well, after all, the person meant for you can handle almost everything about you until, even if a change ever takes place. They could even be the reason you finally begin to want to work things out within yourself!
