Relationships: what should we be looking for?

Dating. I was really beginning to dislike it. My dates were going from bad to worse! The few men I met whom I found interesting weren't all that interested in me. And then I had a series of disappointing evenings with men who did want to pursue a relationship with me. The trouble was that I just couldn't make myself like them in that exciting, romantic way that I thought was so essential to a "real" date. Obviously, there was no balance in this area of my life and I felt unhappy and depressed.

I asked myself, "Could this pattern possibly be what God has in store for me?" Even as I asked the question, I didn't really believe that this was what He wanted for me or—for that matter—what He knew of me. As a Christian Scientist I understood that God is good, which the Bible teaches, and that He continuously gives good to His children.
