Emotions and Dating

When it comes to dating, emotions are the biggest thing that cause conflict, drama, and pain. If we can learn to control our emotions instead of letting them control us, we will see victory in our relationships. Here is an easy acronym to remember about this.

Recognize your emotion
Express it to GOD
Evaluate your emotions in line with God's word
Decide to agree with God

When it comes to emotions and dating, you should lean back not forward. As girls we get overly involved and attached with a guy way to early. We have to learn to 1) let the guy lead in the depth of the relationship and 2) be fully functional and content being single.
Fantacizing about guys sets you up for heartache. Don't do it.
Pray for God to guard your heart. Proverbs 4:23
1 Corinthians 7:34-focus on what God wants for you
Galations 1:10-Examine yourself, are you trying to please men or God?

You always marry somebody you date.
So think about who you're dating!

A man will never meet all your needs. Only God can totally fulfill you.
