Relationship is like fire, potential for good or bad, joy or hurt
In a relationship you give the other a license to hurt you
Love is not just a feeling, it is a discipline, a commitment 1 Cor 13
God first - 1 John 4:19
If you're dating and don't see yourself getting married, STOP!
Know your role
Man love your wife as Christ
If you're dating, you're in it for what you can give her
Woman, respect and submit, give opinion

Not when it feels right
Not because they like you
Not because your friends are dating
When you are obedient to your parents and guardians about it Eph 6:1
When you are actively seeking God first in your life Mat 6:33
When you are loving God with all your heart and all your strength Mat 22:37
When you know the "who" in them
NB: Dating well is better than dating early
Not because of how they look Prov 31:30
Not only because of how we feel about them
Date a follower of Christ 2 Cor 6:14
Date a person that loves God as much as you (or more than you, but in the right way)
Date a person in a similar age range that is easy to get to know them
Date a person your parents and friends are "generally" okay with

Father, You said not to be anxious
I commit my finances to You, increase my salary 5 digits Lord
I ask for direction and wisdom
You have heard my plans, yet not my will
I will work hard, guide me
Help me find rest in you
Let me not be purturbed when I cannot see her
I trust You

....wait for me, we need to talk
I wait and wait and wait
Finally she arrives
we talk about je veux sortir avec toi and then i realise
.... i really love her enough to let her have the best even if it were not me
I love you

More importantly i wanted to let her know that i still feel love, passion, attraction, enchantment, ... for her and really look forward to a life long stay with her.
I rallied up confidence and told her to expect me in the morning.
I waited for her...
I went up to her... still on my bike... she was in a hurry to go to her office...
I told her she looked beautiful... i started perspiring... i mustered courage and said...
I want to date you
she nodded... , but she had to leave to attend to work......
I waved and left for work....
she calls to meet
... i arrive, and we discuss the morning
agreement is reached on the exact meaning

This post is about gear - gloves and my first fall on a bike (very very minor fall)
So after riding on a slippery basketball surface and even a clayey football field - I RATHER slipped on a very small patch of mud in my office parking lot.
So i was turning at walking pace to observe the reverse parking rule here and "bang!" my bike was low sided (i know this applies to higher speeds).
I broke my right side mirror.
My gloves (Kevlar with armor) took some mud as well.
On hind side - i should never ride through such questionable surfaces and more so try to negotiate a bend.
Please please if you ride do so with gear! and for this purpose GLOVES!
And yes i thank God for all this and His provision for me :-)

I resolved to love, i resolved not to exert myself on people to whom i expressed love yet but rejected it - (wrong move in retrospect)
But guess what, 1st Jan 2017, sitting on the same slab, i reverted when a dear person sat by me and i realised that the "love" i feel for her wasn't one that could be brushed off.
A few days later she (another) hits me up on the phone and i wonder to myself, this is reciprocal and i start wrapping my mind to possibilities again.
Some months i decide to get in touch with her (yet another) and she (yet another) is very happy and expresses profound excitement (i deduced love) to hearing from me.
Anyway 3 months from that day, today, i realize, yes i do love her (placeholder), and that is what it is.
Love is not selfish, et al 1 Cor 13
so here is another resolution - to still love with a non-expectant mind.
