But character is the foundation upon which commitment is built.Character does not change just because one gets married.This often means that a healthy bonding is not taking place and the emphasis is upon self-satisfaction in this Christian dating relationship. It is very important to look for CHARACTER issues in each other during this stage of Christian dating.Give yourself enough time and enough settings where character issues can surface. Individuals can “mask” character issues for an extended period of time – especially a few months during the fantasy period of Christian dating.
Pushing the pace causes areas of each other’s character to not be observed.
There is an attraction to each other and Christian singles immediately (or soon thereafter) think they have found their soul mate.
Candidly, there is really little more in the Christian dating relationship during this stage than “physical attraction”. There is a temptation for Christian singles to begin saying, “I love you” during this fantasy stage. The emphasis should be upon enjoying each other’s company and building a FRIENDSHIP and refraining from going any further. After 2 to 3 months of this type of dating and it is mutually agreed, the Christian dating relationship can move into an exclusive dating arrangement.
This is not wise and God wants to mature you in your Christian dating and bonding process.
It is my prayer that Christian singles will use the above to develop their own Christian dating guide for building a strong and satisfying relationship.
There are so many voices at play in our world today.
