When we put all of our hopes on a person -- whether male or female -- we will end up empty and deeply disappointed (see Gen. 3:16-17). God does not call us together as a man and woman for the purpose of getting our needs met, but rather to give sacrificially to the other person. Why do you desire to date and ultimately get married? It is important to be clear about your ultimate purpose. Otherwise, a great possibility of disappointment lies ahead of you.
