Christians and dating bible

Now of course we know that these two men were not sexually intimate.

You see how ties were created even though sex was not a part of the equation?

There’s no definitive guide on what to do and what not to do for us believers because the word “dating” isn’t even in the bible. What we call dating nowadays crosses too many lines.

Follow his lead and if he’s being flaky and doesn’t seem to know what he wants he can figure it out by wasting someone else’s time, not yours. Those are the blurred lines I was referring to earlier.

Communication doesn’t just begin with what you say, it also starts with what you do.

Men, if you know that you purely just interested in getting to know her then tell her that.

If you’re single right now and you haven’t found someone that you’re ready to be exclusive with then the person you’re dating should know that from the beginning. Because figuring it out leaves room for their own interpretation and you could be saying and doing something that is leading them on unintentionally.

Women on the other hand, get emotionally involved quickly even if you guys have never kissed. You might not fully agree with this viewpoint but you have to take it into consideration at least. Would you be more careful about how you treated your sister than some random girl?

If this person is a believer, then she is technically your sister in Christ. We think that soul ties happen when sex happens, but on the contrary, soul ties can happen even if you’re never sexually intimate with a person.[shadowbox]1 Samuel 18:1, “And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.”[/shadowbox]Jonathan loved David like he loved his own self. Sounds a lot like, “Love your neighbor as yourself” to me.

I mean you go from coffee at Starbucks, to Netflix and chillin’.

Next thing you know, you wake up to find yourself in a position that you were trying to avoid.

Meaning one moment one of them have come over to enjoy a movie, and the next moment you find yourself repenting in the morning.

Try telling the person that you just “Netflix and Chilled” with that you would see them today, but you have a movie date with someone else. Set “dating” guidelines, and define what dating looks like for you. Take ALL the romantic, touchy-feely stuff out of the equation so lines don’t get crossed or blurred.

Trusting your heart can lead anyone into making bad decisions. Can you really say that you have “the heart” figured out?
