There should be fruit in his life. You will know a believer by their fruits.
A wise and godly woman knows that a godly man should always treat her like a lady. He should open the car door, let you enter first when walking into a building, pull out your chair, pay for dinner, be respectful and have manners with you at all times. He should never use profanity in your presence or call you names that are hurtful.
If you expect to be treated like a lady, then you will be. A wise and godly woman knows that a godly man will be honest about his intentions toward you. He will not play childish mind games or lead you along if he has no true interest in commitment. If he wants to be in your life, he will be consistent. A wise and godly woman knows that she should let a man know what she expects of him in a relationship.

She will respect him and honor him—both publicly and privately. She will desire to be a blessing every day of his life. He deserves your best. Trying to mold a man into the box of what you desire in a mate is cruel and unfair to any man. A wise and godly woman knows that the way you treat him and make him feel in your presence is what he will remember—more than the dress or shoes you wore.

A wise and godly woman knows that respect starts with herself, her standards, her expectations, and her priorities. It starts with her and she should let a man know up front how she expects to be treated. A good man will respect you and honor you for this. All these things should be based and founded by the word of God. A wise and godly woman knows that he should appreciate and respect your body the way it is. However, I do feel a godly woman should strive to maintain her health, exercise and eat responsibly.
A good man will see you as beautiful just the way you are on fabulous days and frump girl days. Your beauty will be enough just the way you are.
A wise and godly woman knows that if you keep circling a bush about the same problems with him, guess what? You are going to keep circling around that bush. A healthy relationship can deal with and solve problems together. Your love will be Christ-centered. This is a spiritual leader.
Making a "Good" Choice or a "God" Choice
The way he leads you before marriage matters. A wise and godly woman knows that a godly man will not walk out and abandon you. He will face challenges with you. You are not a yo-yo. Your heart is precious and he should handle it gently and honorably. Not be stringing you back and forth. A wise and godly woman knows that no amount of your love, sweetness, etc. Only God can change him—if and when he makes his decision for God. Wasting your heart, tears, time, and dreams on a bad boy is a BAD choice. I love how real, raw and vulnerable the author is and that she took a stand to say the truth and to empower other like-minded believers to walk in their anointing, beauty, calling and royalty!
This really encouraged me!

Will you share this post with your sisters in Christ who need it? Comment below and share with us your favorite line or excerpt from the poem. Hi I really need some advice. So my boyfriend and I have been dating a little over one year. For me there was no intense attraction in the beginning I just thought that maybe it would grow, and it has, somewhat. Another thing is some days I feel like we are on different pages when it comes to our relationship wi5h Christ.
He is a great and really sweet guy and everything I could want in a boyfriend, but I find myself unsure. I do love him, but how do you break up with someone you love? Should we even break up? How would I go about that if so? Advice needed. Log in to leave a comment. We here at Project Inspired want to guide and inspire teen girls to be true to themselves and to God.

Who are we? We're a team of girls, like you. We edit the site, we post to social media, we hang out in the chat rooms and forums. Well, I had no idea that you could get dating advice from Ruth! For some strange reason, I thought it was about her being a Moabite and you know, not being struck down by lightning when she told Naomi she'd follow her God too.
Fancy God wanting non Jews in his gang! Wild paraphrase aside, re the good dating ideas given to us by Ruth and Boaz, I haven't read the book in a while but I thought that she totally set him up by sneaking into his room and sleeping at his feet whilst he had had too much to drink to realise she was there. He then had no choice but to do something and quick. But I guess that wouldn't go down too well in our churches in girls started to do stuff like that. I am personally very uncomfortable with the idea that women are supposed to wait for the perfect Godly man to make his appearance.
I don't know where this myth has come from, but it's very unhelpful and feeds into teenage romantic fantasies some women have about Prince Charming and the like. What you can get from Ruth, I guess, is that in everything in your life, you are not meant to simply wait passively for life to happen to you, you sometimes need to take the bull by the horns so to speak.
If she hadn't sneaked into Boaz' tent,the story might not have turned out the same way. In our world, this might mean that if you feel your options are limited in your bible study group and let's be honest, they usually are , putting yourself out there via internet dating and meeting new people from other churches etc is not a bad idea. Hahaha- I like your first paragraph. Also, about the idea that women are supposed to wait for men to "make the first move"- yeah I guess that doesn't make sense, but it's what I've always heard, so I'm going to have to think about that one.
Although, now that you mention it, I'm the one who first asked my boyfriend "so are we dating? What really kills me is the misquote "Ruth waited patiently for Boaz. But what this says to me is that our Christian subculture expects women to be the passive ones in the relationship. We're supposed to hang around like some Disney princess from the fifties Snow White, anyone? And then, as you say, get married, have babies, and live together for 60 years.
Sorry, but no. I don't plan on getting married any time soon, and kids aren't really of interest to me. And if I do want to get married, I won't be waiting around! Kudos to you, Church, for putting women in the back seat once again. Yeah, exactly.

After God changed my life and set me free from the lie that I couldn't live without a boyfriend, I decided I'm NOT "waiting for the right guy" any more. I'm not waiting. I do other stuff. I have a freaking full independent life and I have a lot of friends and do a lot of interesting stuff.
I'm not leaving an empty space in my life so that I'm ready to start dating at a moment's notice. Disclaimer: I do have a boyfriend right now- but I stand by my philosophy of "not waiting. It seems to me that the other thing Ruth did not wait for, was for social norms for women to catch up with what she was doing-- what she knew she needed to do, to provide for herself and Naomi.
Even in the Bible, is is the women who "misbehave" who make history.
