As far as I understand the Bible dating is not scriptural. So you decide that you will go out with some "guy" for a while and see if you like him (kick his tires, if you will). This kind of "relationship" is based on trial and error. Things he buys you (is he spending his money foolishly or wisely), places he takes you to (would you want the Lord to find you there), things he says to you (sometimes what he is not saying is more important than what he is saying), or how he touches you (we will get to this in a moment). What will happen when he takes you to through the drive-through at the golden arches instead of that restaurant with the linen napkins that you went to on your first date, or he doesn't say the things he used to or says the wrong thing because you are experiencing PMS? If you do, then you are the one who is insensitive. Ask yourself where you want your relationship to go. Will you be able to stop there or will you go farther than you planned and have to live with guilt feelings and regrets? For the most part the world forces us to accept beautiful people and reject ugly, homely or plain-looking people. Too often relationships are based on someone's looks.There is nowhere in the Old Testament where men and women dated before marriage. If you find him "sea-worthy" then you will continue to see him. Not very wise when seeking a marriage partner, wouldn't you agree? A woman's emotions are a virtual roller-coaster ride. A man can talk a woman into doing things she normally wouldn't think of doing especially when a woman's emotions are in control of her thought processes. If he is "drop-dead gorgeous" (tall, dark and handsome) then you are interested in going out with him.Also, this isn’t to say that a woman won’t ever have “girlish” or immature tendencies or vice versa.This post refers to one’s maturity and most points would also apply if you switch the genders as well.First and foremost, dating is a time when a Christian finds out if his or her potential marriage partner is also a believer in Christ.The Bible warns us that believers and unbelievers should not marry each other, because those living in the light (of Christ) and those living in the darkness cannot live in harmony (2 Corinthians -15).
If you would rather be doing something else with her, than you shouldnt be there at all.
Question: "What is the difference between dating and courting?
" Answer: Dating and courtship are two methods of beginning relationships with the opposite sex.
Again, many points on this post would apply if you switched the genders around. I’m referring to maturity, life vision and stage of life.
In fact, some people regardless of their age, will never really grow up.
