Date a man who dreams.
Date a man who doesn’t spend his money on drink, or clothes, or video games, but saves what he has to go on adventures and pursue his dreams. He might have problems dealing with everyday things but no-one sees the possibilities life holds like he does. This is a man who…
We stood there, looking at each other, saying nothing. But it was the kind of nothing that meant everything.
“Love is like the sea. It’s a moving thing, but still and all, it takes its shape from the shore it meets, and it’s different with every shore.”
-Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God
The greatest relationships are the ones you never expected to be in. The ones that swept you off your feet and changed your every view. The ones where you found yourself to be a better person because of who you were when he was around. The ones that made you wake up with a smile on your face no…
Tandaan mong kapag kinuha mo ang LOVE. Hindi nag iisa yan. May kasama yang
Ito ang una mong mapapansin kapag kinuha mo yang love package na yan. Dahil ito ang gusto mo kaya kinuha mo yung package.

Sa oras na sumuko ang isang tao sayo at hindi na naipaglaban ang pagmamahalan niyo. Hayaan mo na siya dun, may mga taong dadating. At least napatunayan mo sa sarili mong sinubukan mo ang bagay na makakapagpasaya sayo, at least sinubukan niyong dalawa yung sinabing pagmamahalan. No regrets, nagmamahal lang naman tayo eh.
As we grow up, we learn that the one person who wasn’t suppossed to let you down probably will. You will have your heart broken, probably more than once, and it’s never easier the second time around. You’ll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You’ll fight with your best friend, and may even fall in love with them. You’ll blame a new love for things an old one did. You’ll cry cause time is passing too fast. You’ll eventually lose someone you love. Life is short, so take too many pictures, laugh way too much, kiss way too slow, cry way too hard, and love everyone.
Ladies, this one is for you.
For all of you are who are single, engaged, dating, or even considering dating. I have one question for you.
What does your ideal guy look like?
1) Is he Tall?
2) Is he Funny?
3) Is he Handsome?
4) Is he Motivated?
5) Is he Athletic?
All these searchable qualities are great. But when it really comes down to it, will any of these qualities withstand the length of time? Will any of these qualities give your relationship depth or meaning? And will any of these qualities help you build a foundation that can withstand through all?
I really want you to stop and think about your life. I want you to think about your future. And I want you to think about your heart.
Now don’t get me wrong. I am not saying I have all the answers, or that I can even begin to understand the mind of a women, because I can’t. But what I do know, is that you are my sisters in Christ, uniquely beautiful in wonderful ways. And I would not be able to call myself a a true follower of Christ if I did not take the time to protect and look out for you.
I am not saying that I am”Mr. Perfect”, or haven’t made my own selfish mistakes, because I have. But what I do know is that you deserve more than what “they” say, because your life was formed by “His” hands.
1) You can’t put your trust in a man, until he can first put his trust in God.
2) A real man opens more than the door. He opens his bible.
3) A real man will go to church with you.
When it comes down to it, you are a princess of the King, and to be treated any other way is NOT what God intended for you.
The last time I checked, you weren’t just an interest of the King, but a Princess of the King. And you deserve a prince.
Don’t settle for “him”, but keep your eyes on HIM.

Do things unexpectedly.
One key secret to a successful relationship is compromise. Meeting halfway on things shows your partner that you really do care about their viewpoint and you are willing to work on making each other happy. Every so often make it a point to do something that you normally would not agree to or feel like doing. When you keep your partner constantly surprised by your actions, you regenerate that “new love” feeling time and time again. So, when your partner asks if you want to try that new restaurant…say yes! If they ask if you want to try a new hobby…say yes!
Show your loyalty.
Nothing strengthens a relationship quite like watching your partner go to bat for you, especially against close friends or family members. It shows that you consider your relationship a team. If you harass one member of a team, you harass them all. When you side with other people against your partner you make them feel alienated and the seeds of hidden resentment become planted. You can show loyalty positively as well by bragging about your partner’s recent accomplishments to friends and family.
Challenges and opportunities are always going to occur. You can’t stop them from happening. Hopefully for both of you the changes in your lives are positive ones. The secret key here is having a supporting and understanding mate in your corner to help you through your ups and downs. If you lose your job, it’s quite a bit easier to bounce back when you have someone who’s willing to support your choices and any new directions you might want to branch out to. If you want a career or lifestyle change, imagine the difference having someone who will carefully consider and support those changes? When your partner is presenting you with a challenge or an opportunity, treat them the way you’d want to be treated.
Maintain a healthy dose of individuality.
Personal time and space are essential to growing individually. Everyone one needs private time to do the things they want to do. It helps refocus attention to the priorities. Sometimes you or your partner may just need time to release emotions from a bad day, instead of bringing it home with them. Learning to respect and notice when your partner needs some individual time shows that you are committed to not only your relationship, but their long-term happiness as well.
Love your partner.
Love is obviously a crucial element in a successful long-term relationship. But having love isn’t enough. You need to be in love. The phrase “love is a verb, not a noun” certainly applies here. Don’t hesitate to write that quick love note, give that deep kiss, sit next to each other at a restaurant or hold hands in public. The little things go a long way towards establishing a deep, intimate connection with your partner. As simple as it sounds, this action is probably the most commonly overlooked and ignored.
