There’s no definitive guide on what to do and what not to do for us believers because the word “dating” isn’t even in the bible. What we call dating nowadays crosses too many lines.
I had people argue me down about how they felt it was OK to date multiple people.
Things can escalate quickly so don’t blur the lines. I hope you can see where this could be an issue because if this is protocol for all the people you’re dating, well, that’s a problem.
Let’s say you have 3 different people that you’re dating at once. You kiss and hug each of them, and I’m not referring to the church hugs.
Dating in the western culture for Christians is so confusing if you ask me. If that’s the case, then shouldn’t I just continue my walk and eventually whoever God has for me will come? I get it, but that is also kind of like saying, “We have to live together before we get married because that’s how I’ll know if I can marry this person”.
Is there such a thing as God having “the one” for you, and if so, what’s the use of dating? They would say things like “How do you know what you like and don’t like if you don’t date?
Follow his lead and if he’s being flaky and doesn’t seem to know what he wants he can figure it out by wasting someone else’s time, not yours. Those are the blurred lines I was referring to earlier.
Communication doesn’t just begin with what you say, it also starts with what you do.
Men, if you know that you purely just interested in getting to know her then tell her that.
If you’re single right now and you haven’t found someone that you’re ready to be exclusive with then the person you’re dating should know that from the beginning. Because figuring it out leaves room for their own interpretation and you could be saying and doing something that is leading them on unintentionally.
So my question to you is what are you saying with your actions?
Seriously though, if you know what you want, and who you want, why waste time playing the field? You really don’t know what you want and you think you’re going to find the answer to that question through the people you date.
Also, if you’re not expecting to be “just friends” with someone then you should let them know that the first time you guys talk on the phone or have a cup of coffee.
