Psalm 118:8-9  It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.  It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.
Don't put your confidence in man's choice of marriage partner. They may be doing it to help you because they think you are ageing but they are actually leading you into sin. God may not be in it. Sometimes, it is you that approaches them because you think they are clairvoyant. Go to your Father by yourself.
Yes, others can join you in prayer but let God make the choice of a future partner for you, for He is the only one that sees into the future and knows the end from the beginning. Let nobody turn himself or herself into a matchmaker. Don't go into boyfriend and girlfriend relationship. That is the way of the world. Don't entice anybody to yourself. If you do that, you have engaged the services of Satan and adopted his methods; the Holy Spirit cannot be in it.
Do not consider an unbeliever for a wife or husband. He doesn't know Jesus and may never know Him. Don't even think you can convert him or think once you bring him to HOREMOW he will change. The most likely outcome is that he or she is the one that will change you and you become a backslider. Your partner is somewhere waiting for you and God knows him or her.
Don't approach a person before seeing the leadership of the church or marriage committee.
You don't need to dream before you receive God's leading.
Your leading could just be a kind of peace in your heart. Bring in the name and let the leaders investigate because he may be married, or already engaged to someone else, or a divorcee or he/she may belong to some synagogues of Satan. Whoever it is must show evidence of salvation and give assurance he/she is marriageable in Christ; for God will not give a serpent or stone to His children as food.
Don't talk to her or him, but let the committee conduct all necessary checks after which instructions will be given on how to proceed. The marriage committee will ask both of you to go for medical tests for critical blood compatibility.
It may also be necessary to check the genitals because the person carrying a man's face may have a woman's organ.
You know that you are a eunuch, why create problem for the future by going into marriage?
When you know you will not be able to perform the full duties of a husband. If medical tests are okay, you move to the next level which is making a proposal. Then parental introduction (with accompaniment to avoid temptation) follows. This is how it progresses until final wedding and everything done in righteousness and holiness. Amen!
