A New Outlook On Dating

No one go into shock when you hear this but I recently got myself a Tinder account (if you don't know what Tinder is don't worry, you really aren't missing tons). I haven't fallen madly in love with anyone (yet ;D) but one guy posted the link to his blog in his profile. He had written this post about dating that I was really impressed with.

You can read the whole post HERE.

This is a excerpt from it:
"President Uchtdorf's counsel is very wise, eye opening, and beautiful. All us seek acceptance. One of my greatest fears in dating is that I will say or do something that will drive girls away. I am afraid that if I am imperfect, then she won't want anything to do with me. I feel like if I do not meet her expectations, then I will not have a chance with her. We seem to be so quick to judge when someone's imperfection are so evident, but don't we wish people saw passed our weaknesses? It goes back to the golden rule that we should treat people how we want to be treated.
Everybody wants to love and to be loved. The best way that I know how to express that love is exactly how Elder Holland described it, be a kind word and a listening ear. I believe that if we all date with this attitude, dating will become fun and natural. The sooner we can all stop looking for perfection in those we date, the sooner we can find someone with whom life can be beautiful. We can create wonderful memories with a wide variety of people as we date a diverse pool. Life will become more beautiful, and the beauty that is innately in all us will begin to shine forth.

  1. I wish it could be like that than any other way, for that love can not be based on perfections without imperfections. me likey
