Dating questions for christian singles
I’ve been set up with guys—even ones who know I’m a Christian—who expect me to go along with their lifestyle choices: sex, drugs, excessive drinking, and the rest.
Other times, guys find out I’m a Christian and automatically assume I’m uptight and judgmental.
Every year my church hosted a singles retreat in Destin, Florida on Labor Day weekend.
It was the first year I went, and even though it was for singles, I was dating someone at the time, a man previously married. My boyfriend and I spent time together, but we weren’t inseparable like you might think.
After thinking about your own Christian values and what matters to you, you can begin to think about the kind of traits you would like to see in your date, and no, we’re not just talking physically…
Ask yourself simple questions such as: do our Christian values match or what qualities would I like to find in a date?
But, remember that values go beyond religious choices and having different core values in other aspects of your life can mean that you’d still have a good relationship.
For example, you could hold forgiveness as one of your core values, but your date’s imperfection could be finding it hard to let things go, this doesn’t necessarily mean you shouldn’t date.
The time to think through any potentially perilous situation is before it happens. If holding to your values is important to you, take time to identify them before you start dating. Many awkward and compromising situations can be avoided by simply being honest with your date about your standards.
The stereotypes get old.” Of course, the problems don’t disappear when Christians choose to date only other Christians.
