Christian dating advice breakup sign he is interested in dating

When my boyfriend broke up with me in January, my brother gave me this advice: “Maybe God has freed up your time for something.

Maybe there’s somewhere you’re supposed to go or something you’re supposed to do.” That concept helped me process the situation by shedding new light on it. I haven’t moved since the breakup, and I haven’t accomplished any concrete task that dating would have kept me from doing. I realized I’d let dating distract me from God’s purpose for me.

I learned to retain some independence and not let my passions and interests become lost. There are many good things we can learn from being in relationships, but we can learn just as much from going through a breakup and being single again.

My sister-in-law told me to pray for peace and God would give it to me, and it took me about two weeks to recover from the sting of heartbreak.

After spending a lot of time with God in prayer, I started to feel like the person I was before I met my boyfriend.

Depending on your personality and coping mechanisms, you might be tempted to shrug it off like it didn’t matter or hold onto the pain like a flotation device as you flounder in the sea of your tears.For a Christian to recover after a dating relationship ends, you need to allow yourself a healthy emotional grieving time. It’s good to be emotional, but allow your emotions to be governed by wisdom and (most importantly) by the Holy Spirit.
