Dating advice for young christian women
Back when I was in university, I was involved in Christian groups.
They frequently ventured into the realm of dating and relationships since it was on the minds of a lot of hormone driven college age students.
All too often, believers over-spiritualize dating and try turning it into some kind of holy act.
Editor’s Note: I almost re-titled Nicole’s post, “How To Get A Guy.” So much of our single and dating conversations revolve around being content on our own, but it’s also necessary that we start a conversation on the way to date.
Today’s post is written by Nicole Cottrell over at Modern Reject. This post could go into a million different directions.
I also always hear girls saying things like, “I want a man to pursue me.” Well, that’s swell. Except that the girls spouting this line are then the same girls who sit on the sidelines and don’t do anything while expecting to get a date. I mean smile, be interested, be interesting, ask questions, touch his shoulder, laugh at his jokes. There is also a camp among Christians who fear dating.
They think it will turn into a tempting situation (which it could), or that God hasn’t “called” them to date anyone (which may be true).
More often than not, though, guys are chickening out and pulling the ol’ “I’ve kissed dating goodbye” bit. Want to join us & pass this along to other women in your life?
