As former “desperate flirts” the two of us want to share with you a few truths that we wish we would have embraced earlier on in life.
1. Flirting Never Satisfies Long-term
Flirting may be fun in the moment, but it always leads to emptiness and disappointment. Flirting is basically saying “I need attention from guys to feel good about myself.” If you really want to feel long-term satisfaction, you have to turn to the true Source. Only Christ can ultimately satisfy and give you your true identity.
2. Flirting is Selfish
Flirting at it’s core is a selfish act. Flirting isn’t about the other person, it’s about you. It’s about getting attention, making yourself feel good, and trying to get guys to fill your insecurities.
3. Flirting Screams “God Isn’t Enough.”
We each bought into the lie that we needed God plus attention from guys in order to be happy. We now understand that we don’t need attention from guys in order to feel valuable. We learned that God truly is our all in all.
