Dating advice for mormons
The Church spends millions to maintain the Temples around the world, to cut the grass, weed the flowerbeds and to maintain water fixtures, why? Our bodies are also temples, do we put as much effort into maintaining our bodies as the church does the Temples?
Do you eat healthy, work out, and maintain a proper sleep schedule?
I can’t tell you how many guys I know have not asked the girl they think is amazing on a date because they think she would never give them a chance or that she has a boyfriend. The sad part is how often these girls who are amazing don’t get asked on any dates because all of the guys just assume she has a boyfriend or is out of their league. Getting too physical is a widespread mistake that Young Single Adults make.
The pressure for guys to get physical ASAP is insane!
We are also tempted to be dishonest by putting up a facade, there is nothing wrong with putting forward your best foot, but all too often we try to become someone else completely during dating.
Everyone keeps their covenants when it is easy, but it is not easy to tell the truth in dating, we are tempted to be dishonest in two ways. We are dishonest with our words when we tell a lie to get out of an awkward situation, we often rationalize a lie by thinking”I don’t want to hurt them.” An example is when someone asks you on the date and the truth is “I don’t want to go on a date” but you say “I am busy” because you think it is nicer than telling them the truth.I decided to always ask a girl I found awesome on a date.Most of the time I get rejected, but I would rather be rejected or be told “I have a boyfriend” than wonder if I had missed a chance and live with that regret!If you are out of shape, if you are uncomfortable in your own body and can do something about it, then do it!” Honesty is the bedrock principle of any lasting relationship, including our relationship with God.
