If you try to impress by ‘acting’, you will have to maintain that act throughout life to keep them happy.
I thought I would post these ‘Rules or Boundaries for Catholic Dating’ because today’s hook-up culture; today’s self-directive, self-expression culture, promotes things that can be most unhelpful to the soul!I have taken these from several sources, and while I suspect many will see them as over-the-top, the question must always be, ‘Can we really take too much trouble in protecting our soul from the fires of passion and hell’?To get to that place of self-love, she recommends "looking yourself in the eyes (in a mirror) and telling yourself five things you love about you, like 'I love my smile' or 'I love how I make others feel safe.'"When you're ready, the first thing to do, says House, is to physically get out there – no one will know you're available to date if you're staying inside your house all the time!But this doesn't necessarily mean joining every dating service and offering yourself up for blind dates with your coworker's cousin's friend's neighbor.Seclusion, remember, is a precursor to what is intimate and sensual.
: do not ‘act’ as you think a man or woman should act; that is to deceive: be truly who you are.
Whether you're "divorced, in between jobs, in debt, or really anything else that might make you feel weak, damaged, or insecure, don't be afraid to speak to it," says House.
"Don't hide, don't flaunt, don't marginalize, or make light of it.
"Know that it's okay to be exactly who you are," says Erik Newton, a former divorce lawyer and the founder of Together, a magazine and podcast for couples.
"You've grown and changed; you're stronger and wiser, and, yes, you also have some wounds.
"There's nothing to hide or be ashamed of, and avoiding the topic sets the tone that you're afraid of something." Moving on from the topic is equally as important as addressing it in the first place, Newton adds.
