I would be looking for a woman after God's own heart. One who would have this relationship with Christ which would be noticed through action rather than description. Her heart and focus would reflect the love of God which is others interest first. All other good qualities of character will be self evident if this is primary in her life!
By God's grace I grow friendships that last a lifetime! Expressing confidence, understanding, and uplifting to be around. Providing balance of mutual love and respect which has God's love for mercy, doing what is just. I seek the foundation of true friendship in Christ first in relationships.
Furthermore, one has to be in a true daily conversion (dying to self) surrendering even their previous love idea to Christ. Much if not ALL of our previous idea of love & respect is rooted in some kind of prejudice or self therefore even the good has to be surrendered over to Christ.
I have come to realize everything such as communication, compassion, commitment, compromise (in preferences not principle) will hinge on a individuals DAILY CONVERSION IN CHRIST !
I like most casual settings such as being with friends, cookouts, family & church activities. I enjoy humor, expression and also listening. I enjoy exercise and some sports. Outdoors activities such as mountain trials, hiking, etc are a plus.

I would suggest that both pray and allow Holy Spirit to guide our first date. I believe once this is done, we will be within God's idea will.
What I learned in past is relationships will never succeed unless Christ is truly at the center of them. Speaking from experience many of us are guilty and have tried to control this area ourselves, apart from God. When this happens we lack the "trust" and will seek even without realizing a continual search for someone which many times is driven by other factors we are challenged with in our lives.
Recognizing and applying my spiritual gifts I have goals set to be involved in a church ministry. Furthermore return back to complete a Masters in Professional Counseling and then proceed to Doctoral degree (PHD) Psychologist.
There are many opinions and theories in ones understanding about Psychology and a Christian?
Ellen White mentions...
" The true principles of psychology are found in the Holy Scriptures"
MS, 121, 1902
(there is perfect harmony between the Bible and true science, psychology is the science and study of the mind and human behavior)
Psychologists for God are needed......its being guided by Holy Spirit, ones desire, intentions, motives coupled with what you do with it !
The doctorate will most likely be a PhD in Clinical Psychology verses the PhD in Counseling or Research. The Clinical is geared more towards helping or treating people with mental illness. In addition, this type is more accepted as a teaching degree in most major universities than PsyD.
My favorite of verse is Mark 9:24, (NASB)
"Immediately the boy's father cried out and said, "I do believe; help my unbelief."
I found this verse, where assurance, joy. peace was founded, because praying this for months my belief came solid and strong. This after desire enabled me to experience what i am today in Christ.
EGW, Selected Messages BK 1, p. 389
" Faith is the only condition upon which justification can be obtained, and faith includes not only belief but trust"
One has to realize (like in Salvation) that they are helpless in this area and need to surrender impulse love, uncontrolled affections, passions and desires, emotions to the balance understanding and deep knowledge, wisdom of God in this area. By doing so you will develop a "peace, assurance, joy and balance of fulfilled life because you developed by free choice this conformity of character which rests totally in Christ !
This takes a realization of ones past, letting go and again surrender to God. This next step of application of faith, belief and trust must be chosen out of free will. It takes all three ! Like myself in past, many only believe and had a nominal faith that knew nothing of vital dependence upon Christ in this area of relationships. Usually the trust issue to God is because of a "fear,hurt, or lack " that is so developed growing by a environment (surroundings) or a mind set of repeated patterns of behavior. The sinful character traits not fully surrendered and overcome keep us from having the right person in our lives by God. The very things we despise or lack growing up we find ourselves attracted to by various degrees throughout life which most time do not even realize It !
