When your mouths are fused together, fireworks go off behind your closed eyelids for a good, long time. The spark can ruin all of your best intentions, though.
I’ve been dating for a decade, and even though my personal evolution of how I date has changed drastically in 10 years, I can still get caught up with a Mr. I justify a lot of things I normally wouldn’t deal with if I spark with a guy.
It’s a romantic and intoxicating notion, but the truth is when we get lost looking for that magic spark, we lose out on the possibility for real connection and lasting relationship.
This isn’t to say that you should try to force a relationship with someone who you’re clearly not connecting with.
There are a lot of great love stories that begin with people saying they knew instantly. But there are just as many beautiful love stories that don’t start that way. No.” Now they’re celebrating thirty happy years of marriage.
I remember when I was in high school, I asked my mom and dad independently if they fell in love at first sight. I have a friend whose rule is to go on a minimum of two days with a man before she makes a decision if she wants to continue.
Dear Erin Miller, Thank you for your inspirational Christian dating advice.
I will shrug away the fact he'll text and call me when he's available, but will suddenly ghost me when it’s not convenient for him.Sparks can fly, but if they don’t, it’s not the deal breaker we’ve been led to believe it should be. They’re beautiful and electric, but they don’t last. But more often than not, most sparks burn up into the atmosphere.When you think about a fire, the elements that keep it burning for the long term aren’t the sparks.It isn’t a popular opinion, but when we head out into the dating realm, we need to forget about the idea of a spark.When I say “spark” I mean that thought that an instantaneous, out-of-this-world connection is the only indicator of love.
Scripture actually warns us to avoid that really basic attraction in love.
