Q: Your husband’s last blog How to Take a Girl on a Real Date had great advice for guys, but what about the other way around? He says if they do this then they will never have a bad date. A: The number one thing Brian stresses for guys to do on a date is to uphold the dignity of a woman.

Similar to the magnificence of Heaven, her worth can be likened to the “pearl of great price” that the man went in search of and gave up everything for (Matthew -46).

If we don’t know our own worth, then we may put ourselves in situations where we are looking for the guy taking us out to provide us with our sense of worth.

We may try to act or look a certain way so that our date likes us.

It’s not a bad thing to want to impress others, but our ultimate goal in dating shouldn’t be to please the guy who asked us out. God created women intentionally, unique within all of creation.

Saint John Paul II refers to the great dignity and mystery of the design of women as the “feminine genius” (Letter of Pope John Paul II to Women).

It’s no coincidence that the creation story in Genesis builds in beauty and is crowned with the creation of Eve.As women, we can always imitate Mary as the perfect example of womanhood.We should look to her as our role model and constant inspiration for living out our feminine genius. In a “service of love.” It was through this service of love, to God and others, that she was able to experience in her own life all that God had planned for her. It’s not like she went on a lot of dates before she finally met Joseph. She was able to love and serve others, because she knew God loved her first.What Mary did perfectly, and what we all need to try to imitate, is her consistent “yes” to God’s plan for her. Knowing that God loves you just as you are allows you to be yourself on a date.Since you are loved by Him, there’s no need to question whether or not you are lovable.Knowing that you were uniquely created, with your own beauty and mystery, will help you “guard your heart” and not feel like you have to share every detail of your life early in the dating process. That’s why every fairy tales have the prince chasing after the princess, not the other way around.
