Here are some ancient thoughts and how you might apply them in your search. Best of luck.
Some Eternal Wisdom
Three of the Ten Commandments
IX – Thou Shalt Not Covet Thy Neighbor’s Spouse – Keep your eyes and attention on the lady you are with.
XIII – Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness – No one likes a liar. Trust is essential for love.
VI – Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery – The destructive power of infidelity is legendary.
The Seven Deadly Sins
Pride – False pride and arrogance are repulsive to women. Braggarts are merely displaying their insecurity.
Envy – Be content with what you have. There is nothing wrong with striving for more but don’t compare yourself with others. Jealously is very discomforting and unappealing.
Gluttony – If you eat too much, you get fat. You also get unhealthy.
Lust – When lust is your primary motivation you reap dead-end encounters and can never achieve a healthy relationship. Controlled passion follows emotional intimacy and some level of commitment.
Anger – Except for rare circumstances, anger is not appropriate behavior. Anger hurts and drives people apart.
Covetousness – Jealousy will eventually destroy a loving relationship. You cannot control another’s behavior. They must be in the relationship because they want to and it benefits them.
Sloth – Men who are lazy and lack energy are very unattractive. Don’t be a couch potato. Have some ambition. Be proactive.
The Seven Heavenly Virtues
Faith – You must have faith that your efforts will improve your circumstances. Faith may be all you have on some Saturday nights when you are home alone.
Hope – Hope will keep your enthusiasm high and your spirits buoyed through your quest. You should enjoy the journey.
Charity – Be as generous as you are able. Have sympathy for those less fortunate. These are irresistible qualities.
Fortitude – Change takes courage. You will need plenty.
Justice – Be fair to everyone. Those you date and those you don’t — and also, your competitors.
Temperance – Moderation in alcohol consumption as well as other addictive behaviors will keep you healthy and desirable.
Prudence – Proceed with wisdom, common sense and discretion. Good judgement will keep you from harmful relationships.
