5 Things Every Married Man Should Do Around Single Women

2. Hang up pictures of your wife at work. 

A married man in this position would be wise to pick out a couple of great and fun photos of him and his wife and keep them displayed at his office or place of work.

Pick a time that was fun for two reasons: It will remind you why you love her so much, and it will make for a great conversation tool when others, especially women, ask about it.

Update the image as needed to keep the people around you knowing your relationship is continuing to grow. Get that picture up this week and extinguish those flames. (Read Psalm 119:37.)

3. Keep eye contact simple and short. 

Don’t read this the wrong way; I’m not saying to be rude. I’m saying to be careful where your eyes travel and how long they travel when you are in the presence of an attractive single woman.

You know that once you engage in the first serious look, you have signed the dotted line for more eye trouble. (Read more about that “first look” here.)

Keep it short, keep it decisive and move on. Get back to that image posted at your desk. Go! (Read Matthew 5:28.)

4. Keep conversation general and professional. 

If you work around single women, there is no question that conversation will come up. It’s up to you on how you decide to speak with her.

You can choose to keep it short and general, you can choose to keep it professional, or you can choose to keep it off of those and allow it to go places it shouldn’t.

Be polite but very intentional in your conversations. If needed, again, always be ready to bring up something about your wife or family.

Pull the pin, aim and extinguish. Safety first. (Read Romans 6:13.)
