Is Attraction Enough?

When that initial attraction to the opposite sex  happens to you ahead into a relationship without weighing up whether this person may be attracted to you for very different reasons?

Women have an inbuilt desire to be loved. Men have a natural desire for sex. And it doesn't always figure these two natural longings will work in a long term relationship. That's sad.

Does a woman wholly give of herself because she believes the one she is attracted to feels the same way about her?  Unfortunately that is true in so many women's minds. They want something so badly they believe it must be reciprocated, because the object of her love must feel her love so much, he in turn, will love her. Sadly he may tire of this and move on to another conquest. Her romance has ended and she is left alone...again.

Romance. Attraction. Desire. But without respect for the others' feelings, care for their well being, and a willingness to put her needs first, that relationship will be temporary at best.

Enjoy dating. Have fun. But keep yourself pure. An old-fashioned word? Sure is, but building a lasting relationship based on sex alone means no commitment, no ties, and the freedom to leave whenever a new attraction hits. And a broken heart.

Look at these wise words:  "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."

Ask God to guide you into a true and lasting relationship. But first ask Him to forgive your sins and thank Jesus, His Son, who died to take the penalty for them to give you inner peace and to bring you to heaven when you die. God is Love.
