The Right Places

The right places may be

  • at a church service,
  • at a function,
  • At a grocery or shopping store/mall,
  • at a social network
  • at a concert,
  • at an invitational party,
  • at the gym
  • within the workplace
  • at a school or class


The Most Important Things

First of all, do not look for love without seeking your Heavenly Father. As I read about the many divorces and heartbreaks just on here alone as well as in the general media, it is astounding.

With God first in our lives, everything should fall in divine order especially our love lives. God love should lead us to the person that is a loving fit to ourselves. We should match up in God’s likeness, male and female, we should match up if not already then eventually, in the same faith and type of worship. This is so important when we may have children to rear. Look at the world today. People are seeking a loving relationship in many of the wrong places. I am going to keep this short and to the point because I do not want anyone to miss the point here. Secondly, what counts most is what people believe, what people think, how they think and why they think as they do. Paying attention to these intangibles will likely preserve the heart in the long haul.


Go To Respectable Places and Dress to Impress

We should look for the love that is glad, happy or excited to talk to you on the phone, see you and be there for support needed at all times. In order to keep love for you fresh the respect must be maintained at all times. Do not be taken for granted. Remember, the other person must be worthy of your love at all times. Even while in love the heart must be protected to not get hurt. People often let their hearts go thinking a relationship will automatically last forever. It doesn't work like that. Ever heard the expression "dress to impress?" Well, we must dress to impress even our mates, at all times. That's the one that counts most so, housewives? Don't have those rollers in your hair when he comes home or girlfriends? The same applies to husbands and boyfriends. "You never know how good the water was until the well runs dry." These tips may help much better for the long haul.

Poetically Speaking

Looking for love in the right places,

Starting above in heavenly spaces,


Then down to earth seeking a mate,

Can choose by the food that the person ate,

May go to a church, worshiping God,

May meet there and that is not odd,

You may yearn to visit Buckingham Fountain,

Where single people gather,

Instead of climbing a mountain

Oh yes, if you would rather,

If you are single and looking for your mate

Be receptive and very inclined to negotiate,

With time and a smile in pants or dress

It should be for all the while that you want to impress,

You may be surprised at what you may find

That the two of you are two of a kind

      I'm having a love affair with myself. I finally figured it out. Having had a few relationships that didn't 'take' - I decided to look within. Guess what I found? A grown-up woman with a child's imagination. I was missing self-love which is connected to God's love.

      Thanks my friend for this good message.

      Al, there is no right or wrong place to find love, it is all around us, you don't have to look for it. Once I thought that was the case, and then I turned a corner and came face to face with true love.

      Blessings my friend

      First of all, I love those old songs. They fit with your words well, as does your poem.

      I agree that you need to be in the true places to find the right person. I mean, I think that is really good advice, especially for those who like to go out and mingle. However, I like the other option, which is, put God first, put him in command, and wait for him to bring that special someone to you.

      Before I came here to read this hub, a friend of mine on FB had posted a song by Casting Crowns called Just Be Held. It was about letting God take total control in your life. If life gets too hard, stop and be held by him. I think that today this was the advice I needed. And when I read your hub about finding the right mate and putting God first, I knew this was the day I was to get the total message. You supplied it as well as my friend on FB. Thank you for your wisdom in this hub, Al. God Bless You!

      So many people these days find their mates at work. It can be tricky but you do spend a lot of time there.

      Al, beautiful hub. I do believe that love will find it's way to you, when you least expect it, I hope that it happens that way for you.

      That is how it happened for me, that was long ago and I am still with him. It was love at first sight for both of us.

      Blessings my friend

      All very, very interesting. What can I say? You've also inspired noteworthy views here.

      Whatever we do, we do from the Light of our own Consciousness and awareness; a measurement of our own growth, personality or expression, (character) as dictated from within. The Ordainer grants each his/her own unique approach of dealing with this timeless emotion. Glory be!

      Love can find you anywhere my friend, but knowing God and sharing life's values certainly helps that love to grow. He is the third person in every relationship and keeps relationships strong and lasting.

      Al, to love fully your partner needs to have the same life values as you. Yes you do need to always respect and attempt to impress even after marriage, and it's not just the women who have to dress nicely etc. Guys often get lazy and don't dress up for their wives when at home. Also when seeking a partner you do need to look in the "right" places. God's love is complete. Good hub.
