Top 10 things to look in for a man?

What are the top 10 things you look for in a man?

Money, appearance, success?? Are these on your checklist? If so may I suggest to go a little deeper, think of the important things inside before the things of the outside! How would you want your future spouse to compliment or support you in life? Would you like for your spouse to be on the same level as you or would you want you be on a higher level than him? Would you want your spouse to send you flowers or compliment you on a daily basis. What things or qualities are important to you.

At one point in my life, I didn’t have a checklist or an idea of what I deserved as a woman. If the guy showed me attention and told me he loved me I was won! This may be the reason why I am in the situation I am in now, BUT it only has opened my eyes to something better! It has showed me that patience and boundaries need to be in place and God needs to be the most important thing to you!

Remember this could be your future spouse, the one who leads your family, manages the household finances, raises your children. Everyone has flaws but you want to make sure you are not falling for a jerk.

These are just some of the standards on my checklist.

  • Loves Jesus 2. Great Leader/Reliable 3. Caring/considerate 4. Hard worker 5. Loves children


The bible says to guard your heart. To not lean on your own understanding.

New Living Translation (©2007) Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.- Proverbs 4:23

What does it mean to guard your heart? Well it means to not open up to fast, to give into your feelings or fleshy desires all at once. It means to take things one step at a time. It enables you to walk away from that relationship if it ends up not working. When we are in a dating relationship there is no security, it’s not forever, when you are married there is security. Being on guard will help with pace, perceptive and Purity.

I challenge you to start brainstorming to go deeper, find the type of partnership you desire but the type of partnership God desires form you and your man. Remember the bible is the guideline to life, follow his ways things will be abundant and meaningful.

Next time, you see that hottie in the BMW, make sure he aligns with your checklist. Make sure your checklist aligns with God’s word.

You want to fall for a MAN and not for a  jerk.
