Guard your heart. Like seriously. When you are starting to talk to anyone, as a friend or even more than a friend, you need to keep your guard up. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. It’s possible to become friends with someone, without throwing your whole heart in right away. Out of respect for yourself and the other person, don’t hold them at a certain standard or on a podium expecting them to fulfill all your needs. As your relationship progresses you will build trust with the other person, walls will start to come down, but only because you have both earned that trust and shown that you will stick around. Girls you want to be pursued, you want to feel wanted, I know this is such a huge desire for most girls, yet we want love so badly we just throw ourselves at any guy who shows any bit of interest. The man who deserves your heart will pursue you, GLADLY. Won’t even think there’s another way. Let a man chase you, don’t give your heart up to any boy that comes along. He hasn’t done anything to prove worthy of it. Be patient, the right guy will come along, in the Lord’s timing. Which is PERFECT timing. Promise you. Lonely? Seek God. He pursues you every single moment of everyday. He wants to show you a love that is so much greater then love any guy could ever give you. All you need to do is accept it. God is so good. Let Him love on you and fill that emptiness you have. I have way too many girls in my life right now who are being broken down by relationships. It’s breaking my heart, I don’t want them to have to go through this. Guard yourselves, not because you are stuck up or untrusting, but because you care enough about the other person to protect your heart as well as theirs.
