This was extremely encouraging and freeing for her. When you are single and feel lonely, ask God to show you how much He loves you. We want to be wooed, we want to be thought of, we want to be pursued and fought for, we want little gifts – whether in the form of a bouquet or a kiss on the forehead. He wants to be delighted in just like we do, He loves doing this kind of stuff!! We want to know that we are loved, desired, and cherished.

Ask Him to make it perfectly clear whether to continue seeing the guy or not. When things did/do get off balance, I find that Ethan and I fight more, which makes sense, since I am expecting him to fill parts of my heart that he can’t.
