Reasons for Dating – Goals

This is a chance for you to take a good look at your life. Where do you want to be in 5 years, 10 years, 20 years? What accomplishments would you like to have made? Think about what you want in the areas of family, career, church, community, lifestyle and travel. Where do you want to be and what kind of person will be there with you?

Identify and prioritize your goals, and then look for someone who is working toward the same things. You want to find someone who will complement the plans you have set for yourself – or be willing to make some adjustments.

Ask yourself if you can be an asset to your potential partner. Do you feel good about working alongside this person to accomplish the goals he/she has set?

Like in many areas, differences can be attractive at first, but being on the same page is vital when it comes to life goals and your marriage partner.
