So all good Christian dating advice has to consider what kinds of interactions technology is being used support.Keep interactions on social media without a flirting or teasing tone if it’s clearly going nowhere and there is no bid from either of you to try and define the relationship in any way.Moving “quickly” or not often comes with a sense of knowingness and security when one has made the right choice.So if you feel you “should” slow it down, do a double take and ask yourself if you’ve been able to see your potential partner’s “godliness” or what God has expressed through them and in them by virtue of their character. It’s so much trial and error, but there is so much to be learned in that time looking for Mr. My good friend enlightened me to this fact when she put it into words one night. You don’t want to be lusted after, you want to be sought after. If he doesn’t, he’s a boy, not a man, and he’s not ready to treat you like a lady. A man likes to provide for his woman, it is not a weakness to let him, or to let him feel needed and appreciated, or that his hard work is paying off because he can treat his lady to a nice meal. No “project boyfriends.” I recently realized that every guy I dated until my husband, I wanted to (and thought I could) change. You cannot change who a person is and you cannot change a boy into a man. My example for this would be boyfriend #4, my daughter’s father. Our bodies are a gift from our Creator, and they should be kept until a man has sworn himself in marriage to us before God and all of our family and friends. So fun, so nerve-wracking, at times so confusing, at times so disappointing, at times so filled with hope and promise… Give EVERY relationship to God from the beginning – even before you meet up on date #1. This is a common struggle, don’t be ashamed of it, be aware of it and work to counter-act it with your man and with God! Give yourself time to get to know yourself in Christ first, then worry about finding Mr. I feared being alone because I wasn’t sure who I was without a boyfriend. That time to transform, grow in your faith, and (in my case) re-grow your spine to be firm in your expectations and morals is so crucial to finding the man God’s designed for you.If, on the other hand, there is an intuitive sense you get but that you just can’t quite put your finger on, that there is not enough here for either of you to justify such a rapid spark based on very little information or interaction, then it may very well be “too fast”.
He knows every guy’s heart better than we ever will, and the best part of this is they can’t fool God like they may be able to fool us (1 Samuel 16: 7). If we trust Him, we can avoid a lot of unnecessary heartbreak.It is this willingness to grow in one’s faith, either through discipleship or community involvement, that you can truly get a sense of their belief.The best piece of Christian dating advice is this: “too fast” is only what you make of it.So instead of looking to check the boxes — “does he go to church? ” look for those around your potential partner who can speak of their reputation.Over time you also want to observe an expressed seriousness in their hearts to grow and deepen their understanding of and relationship with God.
