He loves sports, travel, and music, but his passion is writing for God and lifting high the name of Jesus through his writing.
When Christian men and women are considering transitioning a relationship with the opposite sex from friendship to exclusively dating, they should take a step back and truly consider if they should indeed move forward.
In this article I am going to call it “dating” and define it as “the process of finding a spouse.” I do not claim to be an expert: I realize that many varying opinions about dating float around Christian circles jumping over each other, getting mixed together, and consuming some people.
You wish it could happen soon but it completely freaks you out. Some people call this dating, other people call it courting — there are likely countless terms you could use for the process.
Either way, the quality of your life is what you make it.Talk and interact with them, face-to-face if you can, but give them plenty of room to breathe. The purpose of dating is to see if two people are a match.Do not be afraid if it does not work out, you have still fulfilled your purpose in dating. Just because it happened a certain way for your older siblings or friends does not mean it will be that way for you.Some people date for many years, others date for months, or even weeks. If you cannot do that, then you should not be dating: it is not fair to either of you.Like any relationship, dating and marriage should not be put into a box. Remember, you are trying to figure out if the two of you are a marriageable match. Your relationship is not so important that you cannot enjoy yourselves! Do romantic things, do normal things, do things together, and do things with your friends!Married people have the best dating advice since they have already done it!
