10 Principles For Christian Dating That Will Transform Lives
Before you make the decision to begin embracing your new life style, I'm going to list a few do's and don'ts--for your dating pleasure. If someone you have a strong attraction for, or vice versa, invites you to an evening event, make it a group thing. Always keep your first seven dates filled with educational and cultural things.
It helps to stimulate the intellect and not the sex drive. On the first date dress conservatively because, remember, the attention must not be drawn to any part of your physical body.
When you dress naked, you leave nothing to the imagination and you cause him never to tap into the real person that you are! If you are very serious about your interest in a person, before there is any talk of marriage always insist that he meet your pastor--shepherds can see farther than the sheep can If a man invites you to his home, for any reason at all--whether it's to see his trophies or his pet, help him decorate, or even to see the ashtray he made in the first grade--always take a friend.
Remember, you're walking into his territory, where his spirit rules. That's just like a mouse walking to the throat of a lion thinking he's going to turn around and walk back out; mind you the lion hasn't eaten in a while.
Should Christians Date ‘Just To Date?’
If a woman invites you to her home, and it is early on during your season of dating, it is not unmasculine to say that you wouldn't feel comfortable doing that If it's just a friendship, on the first two or three dates the bill should be shared.

A rose says, "I love you"--a bouquet says, "I'm thinking of you. If he comes to take you out and it's past 9: Instead of thinking about dating with marriage as the end goal, focus on friendship. Finally, part of guarding your heart is not letting someone into the intimate areas of your life foolishly. This is true with just about anything in life. If you stay close to God throughout the process, you will be safe.
Allow the wisdom of the Holy Spirit to guard, guide and direct your dating path. So I know some people will vehemently disagree with this viewpoint, but these are honest conversations we need to start having in the Christian community.

The goal should never be to collect a bunch of girlfriends and boyfriends or an endless supply of free meals, but a BFF and life partner.

Relationships are tricky, but we have the Holy Spirit to help us navigate them wisely and in the best way possible.
However, if we take God with us on the journey every step of the way, we will be in no greater hands.
