So many times we find ourselves looking for the wrong things when it comes to finding the perfect partner. We all don't have the same needs, but there are certain things that you should absolutely be looking for in your future spouse. Here are the Top 10 Things Christian Women Should Look for in a Man.
10. Someone who doesn't take a vacation from God's Word.
When downtime is hard to find, it can be easy to neglect what we believe to be most important when we have a moment of rest and relaxation. Find a man who can rest and take comfort in scripture 365 days a year.
9. Someone with Married Friends
If all of his friends are single, that means he is constantly getting advice from single dudes. That's not what you need when you're trying to develop your relationship. Look for someone who is willing to listen to the wisdom of other Godly men and women around him.
8. Someone Who is Creative
They don't have to be Picasso or Ludwig van Beethoven, but finding someone creative means that you are finding someone who thinks outside of the box. Signs he is a creative type: he writes for fun, paints occasionally, plays multiple instruments at the 9:00 a.m. Contemporary Worship service, or writes music when inspired.
7. Someone Who Likes to Cook
Gone are the days when women are expected to cook every meal. You deserve a man who can cook a delicious dinner for two on the stove, in the oven, as well as on the grill. It's good to know that the kids won't go hungry or resort to McDonald's if you have to be away from home.
6. Someone Who Will Notice that You Did Something Different to Your Hair
You stressed out so much. "Should I cut it like this?" "Would this color look good on me?" Once you've worked up the nerve to try something different, people should take notice, especially your groom to be. Don't ask us why he is quick to notice, but if he does, chances are he can empathize with bad styling choices, and celebrate the good ones.
5. Someone Who was an Adorable Baby
We all want cute kids, but a lot of that relies on genetics. If your future baby-daddy had the look in pampers, chances are those devilish good looks could pass on to your children.
4. Someone Who Can Tell It Like It Is
Some men can be a bit tentative to share their feelings and be transparent. Find a man who is sensitive enough to tell you how he feels about a situation. One of the most important things in a relationship is communication, and that means both parties have to be willing to speak up.
3. Someone Who Loves Their Family
If you're looking to have children someday, be sure to find a mate that shows signs of loving people other than himself. He could be involved with kids in the community, take time away from work to spend time with family, or play with his adorable baby sister, Savannah.
2. Someone Who Can Lead in Studying Scripture
It's one thing for your spouse to enjoy reading the Bible on his own, it is ANOTHER things if he is able and wanting you to join in his studies. Find a husband who understands that your relationship with him is merely a reflection of your relationship with God. Signs that your future hubby might be willing to do this include participation in small groups, Bible studies, and leading said groups from time-to-time, even if only one other person shows up.
1. His Twitter Handle is @NicoSaysThings
Ok, so you have made it this far. My name is Nico Cuevas, and you won't see me on The Bachelor anytime soon. I decided to write this as a joke to share with my friends, and if you have stumbled upon this I apologize if you feel misled in any way. I'm probably not the man you are looking for, but there is someone out there who is. Someone who is more than a Top 10 list. Someone who is willing to go through this crazy mess we call life with you. Someone who loves the Lord and wants to be your daily reminder that he loves you too.
If you are still searching, never forget that the one who truly matters has already found you.
