Christian dating nonchristian

Someone asked the question along the lines of, and I am paraphrasing here, “how do you date without yielding to temptation to do the “do” if you already know you have an attraction to the other person?

” One panelist suggested that they “group” date – meaning invite others, i.e., a friend, a family member, etc.

There are a lot of men who when looking for a wife, looks for someone who resembles their mom in attitude, stature, and even morals & values.

I remember a conversation I had with my teenage son a few years ago.

The downside of having a group date where your friends or family is there is that the person you are meeting may try even harder to be on their best behavior to impress your family/friends, thus delaying the process of showing you their true self.

I am a firm believer that if you are going to act out, then please do so within the first couple of dates so that I can make up my mind whether or not I want to be bothered – but I digress.

There are some non-Christians who, for whatever reason, be it morals, values, something their parents instilled in them, etc., chose to wait until after marriage to have sex.

The thing to remember is, if you are Christian and you desire a Christian mate, then you should only look for Christian prospects to ensure that you are equally yoked.

The only difference is you may not know the people that are around you.

He was relaying to me some issues he was having with his girlfriend at the time and he indicated that he was thinking about ending the relationship because “she was nothing like you.” He then went on to share some things that he was looking for in her, i.e., values, character, etc., that she did not posses, but he had seen modeled in our home and he attributed that deficit to her mom.

I think that was the first indication I had that my son was actually looking at me and taking notes on how I conducted myself.

I started this blog as a forum to help explore the issues that people deal with every day.

It is my hope that as I share experiences it will help readers come up with practical solutions to deal with life's issues as they arise.
