5 Dating Tips for Christians
Changing cultural norms have made it a bit harder to find love. If you want to mix faith and fun, here are a few Christian dating tips you’ll find useful.
Use a matchmaker
One of the many things you may often worry about is how to find other Christians who want to date and are looking for a relationship, ThoughtCo observes. If you’re going to look outside your circle, but you haven’t got a clue where to start, then get a matchmaker. You’ll find the right people straight away, so you won’t need to go looking for love in the wrong places.
Know what dating means
Going out on a date doesn’t constitute a relationship. A date is just a date. Don’t start planning the wedding when you’ve only gone on a single date or not even after the first five dates. You and your date will need to decide whether you’re a couple or not. Never assume you are.
Be emotionally ready
Engaging the services of a good Christian dating matchmaker can help you, but only to an extent. You need to be ready, emotionally. Don’t start dating just because you want to get over your ex. Date because you want to start meeting new people.
Set healthy boundaries
Dating and sex aren’t the same. You could set up healthy boundaries when you start going on the dates your matchmaker has picked out for you. Those boundaries should allow for great experiences and still help you pace yourself emotionally throughout the relationship.
Have reasonable expectations
Be honest about your expectations. Do you both agree to date each other exclusively? State it out. Be clear about what you expect. That’s going to prevent misunderstandings and make for a smoother and happier courtship. Clear communication is the key to a wonderful relationship. If you’re both ready to dive into one, talk it out.
