You see the magazines, TV shows, and movies that tell you how you’re young, and you should date a lot of people before you get married.
You see certain “role models” jumping from one dating relationship to another.
The choice is up to you and your parents, but Christian teens should still know God’s perspective on dating.
Non-Christians have a different perspective on dating.
I know what it feels like to go to the mall or the laundromat and see fine men everywhere and ain't none of them your husband. There's been times I wish I could give a man my pager number or my office phone number. While at breakfast, lunch, or dinner table, you tell him what you want on the menu and allow him to order for both of you. When you dress naked, you leave nothing to the imagination and you cause him never to tap into the real person that you are! Always insist on him meeting your family and friends....8.
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....9.Christians need to have a different attitude toward dating.However, even among Christians, there are differences as to whether you should or should not date.I highly recommend that you go see the play Phantom of the Opera.It's a wonderful story about the masked man and the beautiful woman.Yet God has more in store for you than just jumping from one relationship to another.He is clear on whom you should date and why you should date.That's a call, girlfriend, and you know what kind of call it is...There are all kinds of advice out there about dating today, but a lot of it is about dating in the world rather than Christian dating.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.
