Young women are often looking for the security of emotional support and that feeling of being cherished by one person – being someone’s “one and only”!
If I ever did something like that I would get teased forever,so that's why I never did.
I am a girl, so all my friends would talk about their crushes while I wasn't even allowed to think of having one.
Even without consciously doing so, these dynamics can happen very easily and “innocently” in a dating relationship.
And it can be all very confusing for a young man and woman committed to the Christian virtue of chastity!
Once you’ve found someone to marry and you get married, you no longer engage in dating.
Therefore, I think it’s safe to say that this is the defining purpose of dating: to find someone to marry.
These underlying motivations can be obvious to a young man or woman, but they can also be subconscious. It is the stirring of manhood and womanhood through adolescence that is heightening the interest in dating.
Hormones, emotional needs and a desire to be adult-like work together shape how a young man and woman will view the relationships in their life.
This naturally will create a great deal of tension within them, which is often spent out in a lot of emotional energy.
The girl wants to be at the centre of her boyfriend’s universe.
In spite of their “best intentions” they can find themselves sliding down a slippery slope toward pre-marital sex. But it requires a great deal of self-discipline and maturity. But even when a teenager possesses great self-discipline and maturity, the question remains: what can he or she achieve through a dating relationship that he could not achieve through friendship?
