Love, Self

Religious people with strong beliefs date for only one reason, marriage.

Marriage gives Christian men the ability, according to God, to procreate and have sex with a woman that is his life partner.

This is a privilege and not a right, so it comes with a responsibility to love you, take care of you, and make sure your needs are met.

In other words, he doesn't just want to be intimate and run. Rather, he is looking to be a lover, a husband, a father and provider, and to be all that you can within his power.

He wants to make sure his spouse feels safe, loved and cherished spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically.

Similar to the way Christ loved the church and gave his life up for her, a Christian man is searching for a woman who he can love deeply.

When you’re talking about the biological urges that men have, the reason why Christian men date is a focus on marriage, because to marry is to have a right to intimacy, that's blessed by God. 

And, a Christian man sees all women as a blessing.

When Christian men see a woman they are interested in they tend to be blunt ask the woman out on a date.

They aren’t going to play games, and do “Netflix and chill”. Generally speaking, when a man is mature enough they will talk to you and ask you out.

Whoever asked a person on a date is generally the one who pays for the first one.

Christian men have unique qualities about them that you will love if you're the right fit for marriage.
