Dating more beautiful women
The inside of a house — space, appliances, interior design — can cover a multitude of sins outside.
But no amount of paint and creativity outside can fix serious issues inside. I might say, “No.” That is, if all you know or like about her is what you see.
“Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised” (Proverbs ). Because physical beauty and charm are naturally appealing. You can look at a picture in an ad or on an app and decide whether someone’s physical appearance is appealing to you, but that’s like buying a house based on a picture from the front yard.
Most people want to enjoy how the front of their house looks, but that doesn’t typically break the list of the top ten or fifteen things they’re looking for in a home. Have the appliances been updated in the last five or ten years? The outside may be most important to some people, but they’re probably people who haven’t owned a home before.
It’s because their appearance, in the eyes of their beloved, is increasingly filled with a deepening appreciation for the beauty in the other. Their love not only looks beyond the surface, but sees the surface with new eyes.
hot right now can lose all of his or her appeal overnight, literally in one headline.
God gave us physical senses and desires for our good.
But that’s only one piece of what makes people attractive, and it is not the main piece — nowhere close.
Or (for the women), if he really is a godly man, why might you be more attracted to the ungodly guy at work?I would encourage you to befriend her and get to know her in safe, unambiguous, non-flirtatious ways (probably in groups), until you know whether there is real beauty behind her face and everything else anyone can see.Have you seen enough of her faith, her spiritual strength and maturity, her Christlikeness to know if her beauty is real and durable, or superficial and fading?The world around us will preach that physical beauty is everything, but we know and desire better.Of all the people in the world, we should be the most free from enslavement to physical appearances and sexual titillation.
