When a Woman Likes a Man

CoupleI wrote an article with a friend of ours, Arleen Spenceley, regarding what should a woman do (from a man’s perspective) when she likes a man and she’s posted it up on her website.  She’s written some quality stuff, I highly recommend reading her posts.

Remember that dating is less about the games and more about the destination.  Is this a person who will lead me to Heaven?  Is this a person to whom I can be emotionally, spiritually, intellectually, and physically yolked?  Is this person leading me to chastity?  Would I trust this person with the care of our children, should something happen to me?

 

And if you’re not in a place to date, remember that you DON’T have to date.  Maybe the Lord wants you all to Himself right now.  If you feel stuck, this famous prayer from the Trappist monk Thomas Merton below may help you out.

“My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going.

I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so.

But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road, though I may know nothing about it.

Therefore will I trust you always, though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.”

-Thomas Merton

    Life presents itself in odd and often crazy ways. Just when you think you’re heading one way, there’s an obstacle. So just take life as it comes… it’s not going to last forever.

    What if a woman likes a man who is discerning for religious life? What should she do then?

    I recently went through a situation with a man where I realized my feelings for him were growing. I wish I would have discovered articles like this before I decided to take matters into my own hands. It was a lesson well learned and maybe that’s what God wanted me to realize, that I had to put all my faith and trust into His timing.
