When Raul & I were dating, more thought it wouldn’t work, than would. Raul was a principled, moral, intentional Christian; I was all the opposite. Raul knew what he wanted & knew God was in it. I DIDN’T know what I wanted & doubted God was in it. Raul wanted a relationship; I wanted a fling. Raul wanted me to stop cussing; I wanted him to START cussing. Raul knew boundaries; I knew how to cross them. They say opposites attract. But when we were dating I had to ask, “But do extremes?!” Straight up, dating WILL have dramas, uncertainty, miscommunication & misunderstanding. SO EXPECT IT. Dating is like-well, it’s like porcupines mating—sticky, painful, awkward. But like I told this chic recently: obey God & be honest & it can’t go wrong. God can ONLY bless obedience & honesty. And ultimately, that’s what we all want–whether dating, single or married.  Raul & I have been married 12 years. We survived our porcupine dance. And so will you. Hey, what advice or questions do you have, as it pertains to dating? Let’s get this convo started!
