If you are prone to one heartbreak after another when it comes to relationships, it may be time to rethink the common belief that dating is about finding "the one" who will complete you, said author and pastor Naeem Fazal during a recent sermon.
"When it comes to dating, love, relationships, and marriage, I think our expectations about marriage, our expectations about dating, finding the person, all that, we seem to be a little gullible, not really sensible," says Fazal, in a video that shows his first message in a two-part series, "Match.Me," at Mosaic Church in Charlotte, North Carolina. "Because a sensible person, the scriptures says, watches their steps. I just want us to be sensible people and watch our steps."

He explains further, "The first thing we think we need to do in getting into a relationship is to find the one. The second step is we fall in love. And then we put our hopes and dreams on that person, [i.e.,] They complete me or whatever. That's the trend and then maybe, just maybe, it does not happen.
"If it doesn't happen we go back to step one" and sometimes, tragically repeat the process over and over again, he said. "So many of us get into a relationship and it's devastating."
