Some girls have lists of qualities they want in their guy but I don't want to limit my guy. Are there general things I can have? Or should I come up with more than his character qualities?
I have a list but it has nothing to do with what he looks like - it is all about his heart and spirit. The number one thing that needs to be a must is that he has a relationship with the Lord. So a Christian; but also a Godly man (he puts God first). There is a huge difference between a Christian boy and a Godly man. In a nut shell a Godly man is a leader and stands in his convictions - he is a STRONG Christian. The only other must quality is that he loves you! That he treats you right and will do anything to see you taken care of - he puts you before himself. Other things can be added too but these should be nonnegotiable.
You can also think of it this way, is he living out the two greatest commandments? Love God before anything else and loving others as himself? ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'" - Matthew 22:36-40.
A Godly man will put God first, family and others (YOU) second, and then himself.
Praying for you sister! Don't let yourself be swept away by a man that does not love God because he cannot deeply love and lead you.
