Read here to see how it worked out perfectly fine for others.
That’s what I told our family friend who was concerned that I wasn’t dating at the age of 26. It’s just that I found the whole dating scene rather depressing.
But the problem comes when you face the reality that the way some people actually implement courtship has been taken to extremes, and has painted "courtship" in a fanatical light.
(Read that post here) Debra Fileta, author of True Love Dates, comments about the courtship vs dating debate in an article posted in Relevant Magazine, “The world of dating can be hard to navigate for a young Christian.
However, good friendships can and should be developed at every age.
“When you begin dating, go in groups or on double dates.
Many young people do not date during their teen years because they are not yet interested, do not have opportunities, or simply want to delay forming serious relationships.
So one solution to this dilemma is to avoid the subject altogether and remain single.
And yet I’m still not a great fan of dating – especially “recreational” dating (). Our young people aren’t too enthusiastic about either of these options.
So in the Christian community, models of courtship, no kissing until the altar, “God-told-me-to” break-up excuses and other confusing circumstances abound.” Our struggle as human beings is maintaining balance.
It’s common for people to swing from one side of the pendulum to the other.
