My interests include jet-skiing, boating, or riding anything on water...I just love the water :-) I also enjoy relaxing at the house, watching a good movie, listening to music that stirs my soul, reading scripture, eating, spontaneous dancing, LAUGHING, drinking ice cold water in a hot shower (see, I came right back to the water). Most of all, I just love being comfortable with my Lady.
I like a woman who is not afraid to ask questions to understand me. My ideal match must be willing to learn who I am by understanding the "Why's" about me and vice-versa. Like, what was the best thing about my day and why? I love the "getting to know each other" part of the relationship. Relationships are made up of two people who compliment or bring out the best in one another. So, understanding the deeper side of each other helps us to figure out whether we are a good match. I'm talking about more than things to do. I'm talking about the who we are in those things. I don't want to go out to a restaurant and all we do is talk about the children, does the car need to get an oil change, dry cleaning or doctor's appointments. I'm talking about what you think about God (and not next weeks church activities), music (and not taking the kids to a concert), politics (and not updating your voter registration), I understand that we have to make plans to organize our busy schedules. But what about 'us', the 'you and I', the 'we', the 'husband and wife are united as ONE'....What about that? We need to know more about each other...the good, the bad and the ugly - LOL Might as well keep it real if we're planning on spending the rest of our lives together. You are who you are :-)
I don't like to fight, but differences in personalities, opinions, beliefs and interests are going to create disagreements. So, if we're doomed to fight, let's do it in the Spirit of Love :-) We shouldn't fight like lawyers who'll do anything to win the case. We should be more like a judge who is over-looking the situation to decide on the best course of action to take. When problems arise, we both need to listen and show understanding to the others side. If you can't do that, I would really question your love for that person. Do you know how many times I have been in an argument with someone and asked them, "Can you tell me what I'm saying?" and they can't. But they can tell me all day what they are talking about. The devil uses deception and misunderstanding as a primary tool to break up relationships. Actions speak louder than words, but words (in truth) speak clearer than actions. Communicating, with LOVE and HONESTY (Not ANGER and Honesty, that just brings Hurt) is a great tool that God/Jesus gives us to defeat satan.
Ask yourself what "Love" means. If your answer has nothing to do with "Giving", I would really question your Love. Love is Giving / Love=Giving. Love is not about taking or thinking about what you can get from that other person. I really believe that if you have two people (both people have to be doing this) who want to Love/Give to that other person, then you have the recipe for a marriage in peace. Proverbs 19:14 says,
"Fathers can give their sons an inheritance of houses and wealth, but only the LORD can give an understanding wife."
Try this for fun- A lot of people know that John 3:16 talks about being saved. Take a look at the "3:16" from some of the other New Testament books, like Matthew 3:16, Mark 3:16, Luke 3:16, Acts 3:16, Romans 3:16, etc. And try to find the message about being saved in them. For some of the books, you may have to read the nearby verses to find it.
