After dating off and on for fourteen years, I know I did.
Think about it any longer, though, and you’ll probably dismiss their story as ancient and out-dated, as irrelevant for twenty-first-century Christians.
Single Christians socializing with a potential mate should be careful not to reveal too much too soon, encouraged Matt Chandler.
During the early part of a dating relationship, he said, "If it's not something that you would share with your crew then I probably wouldn't be sharing it with who I'm dating for a good season of time until I know that this is moving to something that is greater than just dating and we're moving towards engagement and marriage and I think in those moments, now we can begin to share some of the deeper wounds, some of the deeper desires."His wife insisted that Christian singles seek God's guidance on the right time to reveal certain details of their past or personality.
Nearly everyone desires to one day have a close, secure and loving relationship with someone who is willing to be a partner for life.A guy and a girl who aren’t officially dating may send texts to each other during the wee hours of the night, “chat” extensively over Facebook, or “hang out” with each other on their i Phones or i Pads.Maybe they’ll call each other “BFFs” and watch movies or have dinner together, but they do so in a detached way—as though their sexual identity doesn’t matter.The term however, means different things to different people, particularly across generational lines.Parents and grandparents may have one perspective, while younger people may have a very different view. There was a time when dating might have been seen as a purely social gathering that could even include multiple people—sometimes called a group date.
