The Problem With Online Dating And How To Find The Perfect Mate
The Problem With Dating and How to Find The Perfect Mate By Author Emunah La-Paz
I have found someone who is crazy enough to put up with my strange ways. I was blessed enough to find someone who can love me for who I am.
I do believe that love is a growing process. Many people confuse lust with love. I had the pleasure of interviewing men and women who are still searching for love.
I Need To Get Married But I Can't Find The Perfect Mate
I consider myself to be a fairly good looking guy. I have a great job, and a decent sense of humor. The fact that I can't seem to find a compatible mate concerns me.
According to my friends, I'm too- picky and judgmental. But, in reality, I'm looking for a woman to spend the rest of my life with. I have standards. Is there anything wrong with having standards? My dream list is pretty simple.

Is It Too Much To Ask For A Woman Who Does Not Resemble Chewbacca From The Movie Star Wars?
I am not judgmental. My friends are responsible for setting me up with these awkward women, yet I can't help but notice that all of my friends' wives appear to look and behave normally.
Is it too much to ask for a woman who does not resemble Chewbacca from the movie Star Wars?
I often wonder if my friends are hooking me up with strange women just to have a good laugh at my expense.
To be honest I am annoyed with the dating process, I am reaching the point in which I am perfectly fine with being alone. My parents have been married for years. My mother is a beautiful woman my dad is a handsome guy, I want the kind of relationship my parents have, but the pickings are very slim out there.
Maggie's Dream Guy List
Where Did The Normal Men Go...Or Did They Ever Exist?
All of my friends are married, and to be honest, I'm starting to feel like an old maid. I don't ask for much in a man. I just want someone normal like myself. I can't be the only normal person left in this vast world!
My girlfriends say that I'm too judgmental, but I disagree. My girlfriends have found their Mr. Right. They have no right to judge my situation.
I'd make a dream list but I'd run out of paper. Basically I am only asking for the following!
Maggie's Dream List:
1. Please don't be married.
2. Please don't have children.
3. Please don't smell like Old Spice.
4. Please don't live with your mother.
5. Please don't have your mother living with you.
6. Please don't bring your inhaler on the date.
7. Please don't constantly text throughout the date.
8. Please don't be cheap.
9. Please don't talk about how bad your ex-girlfriend treats you.
10. Please don't ask me for money.
11. Please have a job.
I'd keep going but my fingers are cramping up on me.
Back In The Day Finding A Mate Took Pray, Faith and Wisdom
Finding A Mate For Isaac
Back in the day a search for a noble wife was taken very seriously. Abraham asked his servant to go out and find a mate for his son. Through a faith Abraham's servant departed to Mesopotamia to the city of Nahor, to find a wife for Abraham's son Isaac. Through faithful wisdom Laban took ten of Abraham's camels, in which his mission was to find a compassionate woman to to provide a drink for him and his camels. After Laban's prayerful contemplation, a woman named Rebekah approached him carrying a pitcher upon her shoulder. The woman was beautiful but most important she was kind spirited. She offered water to Abraham's servant Laban and his camels. Laban knew that this was the woman for Isaac. Through compassion Rebekah was able to land a wealthy man, and Isaac married a nice woman.
Granted we don't deal with camels nowadays, however we can still use prayerful wisdom to find our significant other.
The Judgmental Curse
The Truth About Being Overly Judgmental
There's nothing wrong with having values. In fact, many of us have a dream list of the characteristics and values that would like in a mate. However, the perfect mate does not exist. We have to meet are partner half way, and hopefully two people united as one can make the almost perfect union.
Let’s face it we can all be overly judgmental at times. And a good dose of humble pie usually sets most of us back on the right track. And then there are those who stand firm. They will not budge until they are certain that they have found the right mate. I’m not sure as to rather people of this nature find what they are looking for. However there are steps that one can take to keep from being overly judgmental.
How To Stop Being Overly Judgmental
1. Be Honest With Yourself
Most people Are Unaware That They Are Overly Judgmental
Similar to an individual with a drinking problem they are in denial. The first step is to recognize the fact that you are judgmental.
2. Don't Compare Your Life To Others
Run Your Own Race
Many people base their lives off the circumstances of others. This is a very senseless way to go about life. Run your own race.
3. Be Willing To Compromise
We All Fall Short
Meet a person halfway. Realize that you have faults as well, and judging will put you in a position to be judged. Be patient. We all have flaws. Finding someone to embrace your imperfections is a blessing.
