Christian dating advice kissing maroon 5 lead singer dating
This is not wise and God wants to mature you in your Christian dating and bonding process.
It is my prayer that Christian singles will use the above to develop their own Christian dating guide for building a strong and satisfying relationship.
It is more important that the process be completed than the time completed. Marital inventories and temperament sorting should be taken at this stage.
These are a wonderful means of finding out which areas you are really in “sync” and where you are apart.
There are so many voices at play in our world today.
Many of these encourage us to rush into marriage with anyone as soon as we find a strong attraction.
There is an attraction to each other and Christian singles immediately (or soon thereafter) think they have found their soul mate.
Candidly, there is really little more in the Christian dating relationship during this stage than “physical attraction”. There is a temptation for Christian singles to begin saying, “I love you” during this fantasy stage. The emphasis should be upon enjoying each other’s company and building a FRIENDSHIP and refraining from going any further. After 2 to 3 months of this type of dating and it is mutually agreed, the Christian dating relationship can move into an exclusive dating arrangement.
There is no set time frame for a pre-engagement period.If they have done the process in a “seasoning” manner, they should plan to marry as practical – with mutual agreement.I say this so that pre-marital sex will not be a temptation.Our emotions need to “grow” into this type of deep Christian dating relationship.Pushing the pace causes areas of each other’s character to not be observed.
It would be especially helpful to take the inventories mentioned above to the counselor for their input. It is very important that the couple receive affirmations from family and friends during this stage.
