Thoughts that keep us from dating

Even though we’re following Jesus, and reading the same Bible, and aiming for the covenant of marriage, our dating advice can be surprisingly wide and diverse.

One Lord, one faith, one baptism — and a billion different dating tips.

I don't believe in there being only one single person out there for each of us. There are certainly multiple individuals out there in the world right now deserving of your love.

Sadly, my immature and unhealthy desires predictably did much more harm than good. Maybe dating has been hard for you too, for these reasons or others. It’s enough to leave you like an eight-year-old, asking, “Mom, where do weddings come from?

The first rule in dating is the first rule in all of life: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength” (Mark ).

You will not truly love anyone else if you do not love God first and most.

There are at least thrice as many reasons to cut things off and move on with your life.

If the person you're dating isn't someone who's deserving of you — if he or she doesn't treat you with love and respect, make you happy, make you look forward to waking up in the morning next to him or her — then you need to hit the road.
