Dating gift guidelines
One of the best ways to save your marriage is through Ranch of Hope. “The one” says you need to find the perfect person. The beauty of marriage is God sustains you despite your flaws. The shells of a shotgun are stuffed with tiny round balls. You are asked to go from a mentality that says “End a relationship as soon as difficulty arises,” to one that says, “Don’t end the relationship regardless of the difficulty that arises.” That’s a tough switch to flip.
If you feel like the person across the table is patronizing you — if, for example, he or she suggests you're wasting your life teaching school when the "real" money's in business — simply say, "Thanks for the coffee date" and head for the door.
Au contraire: Someone who mirrors your personality, tastes and temperament is likelier to be your soul mate than your evil twin.
At some point you'll be ready to move out of your brain (which brought you to this crossroads) and into your heart (which will show you the path to follow ahead).
