This is how iron sharpens iron. In other words, within the many gray areas here, what conduct in our dating lives will help us to best care for our brothers and sisters in Christ and bring honor to His name? When more people start getting married and you are more mature yourself, it just makes sense that you are just more active and intentional about meeting people from the opposite sex. If you apply the wrong dating advice to your life, that approach might keep you single for longer, thus having the opposite effect that you had hoped for. I believe it does.
That was it.
Biblical Dating: How It’s Different From Modern Dating
Modern dating tends to assume that you will spend a great deal of time together most of it alone. Everyone is different when you get them one-on-one. As you get older, I think it is wiser to be more forward and to move faster in the relationship than you would have as a young adult. Modern dating tends to assume that there will be a high level of emotional involvement in a dating relationship, and some level of physical involvement as well. We are talking about one afternoon or evening together, not a lifetime. Perhaps the best way to sum up my beliefs about how your dating approach should change with age is to say that you should lean more on the Christian courting side when you are a young adult and more on the Christian dating side when you are a full adult.
