Happy Wednesday - or happy podcast posting day as we like to call it around here. If you’re a repeat listener, welcome back! But if you’re new around here, we are your hosts, Kristen and Bethany, and we are just two single girls trying to figure out how to date well as Christian women. And in order to start figuring that out, we’ve launched the podcast to start conversations around dating, relationships, singleness, and lots of other fun things!
As I’m sure you noticed, the title of today’s episode is Six Men You Should Want To Date (Part 1). Over this episode and next, we are going to breaking down six different types of men that we would consider datable men. But before we jump into that list, we wanted to start off by making a clear distinction between boys and men. I’m sure most of us have dated a boy or two in the past when we would have rather dated a man. Both of us sure have! And it’s because of those experiences that we wanted to talk about why dating a man rather than a boy is so important.
Our hope for you is that you will date (and hopefully marry) a man who loves the Lord, who doesn’t play games, who is others-focused, and who takes initiative. The last thing we want is for the opposite to be true where you date a boy who is immature, self-focused, passive, and lazy. We want today’s conversation to be helpful for you, giving you characteristics and qualities to look for as you’re considering dating someone now or in the future.
Once we break down a few differences between boys and men, we jump right into the list of six men you should want to date. Even though we only cover two of the six men today, the two types of men we bring up are probably my favorite. We talk about dating a man who is confident and dating a man who leads.
Before we recorded this episode, I asked a bunch of my friends to name three qualities they’re looking for in a guy. Every person I asked - whether they were young, old, single, dating, engaged, married - listed confidence as one of their three qualities. Clearly this is a very important quality to a lot of women (including the two of us), so we made sure we talked through it. We even break down how to tell the difference between a guy who is confident and a guy who is arrogant, because we know that can be tricky sometimes. Finally, we talk about the man who leads. And by that we mean a man who leads himself, others, and you. Plus we give some advice on how leadership from a man looks different in the context of dating and the context of marriage.
So, there’s definitely lots to talk about and think through! So head on over to the Listen tab and check out Episode 1.4 - Six Men You Should Want To Date (Part 1) and then be sure to check back in next week for part 2!
Once you get done listening to the episode, we’d love to hear from you! So head on over to our social media and let us know what other differences you think there are between boys and men. Or if you have any questions, feel free to shoot us an email.
That’s all for now! Thanks again for stopping by and we hope you enjoy this week’s episode!
