But you do need to take your precious time in the dating game if you want to win in the long run.
We must fight it with a massive promise of superior happiness."Relationship expert Dr.
Henry Cloud says, "In a relationship, we are attracted to what we see on the outside - someone's looks and personality; but in a long-term relationship, what we end up experiencing is what's on the inside - their character."A large part of succeeding in the dating game rests on your ability to discern whether or not the person you're going out with has a rock-solid character.
The singles I work with frequently come to me frustrated with, in their view, the Bible's lack of relevance and direction to the dating scene.
While the Bible doesn't give step-by-step or "how to" instructions, we can look at several stories from Scripture that shed light on our current relationship scene and provide timeless principles that still apply today.
One of the biggest mistakes Christian singles make is dating non-believers.
Many singles get so desperate in their search for "the One" they compromise in this most crucial area of spiritual compatibility.Don't pray about whether it's right or not; don't waste your pastor's time asking him.God has spoken on this issue in His Word; it's not a grey area.The Bible clearly says believers shouldn't date or marry someone who is not a fellow Christ-follower (2 Corinthians -15; 1 Corinthians ).If you're in a dating relationship with someone who isn't a Christian, then you are outside of God's will for your life.And it's why every move in the dating game has to be made with caution, patience, and a praying heart.
