He shields you.
As parents have a protective instinct to shield their children from corruption, evil and harm, so should the love of a husband for his wife be equally motivated toward the protection of his wife from being misled into a destructive path. The love of a godly man will be committed to maintaining her holiness, virtue, and purity. In dating, you should feel as if you are placed on a pedestal, not in an idolizing manner, but as a precious and valued part of his life. This is not an insinuation that you are in need of a man to come to your rescue and making all your life decisions for you. God has created us to work together in this life through marriage in a harmonious balance of strengths that each individual possess, making the whole complete. You may be very capable of taking care of yourself, managing your finances, providing a nice life materially and successful at your chosen profession. However, that proficiency does not bring the fulfillment that comes from a shared life with a godly man. In the dating stage, you should see evidence that he is a responsible and mature man, reliable and trustworthy. You feel valued.
