Dating Advice From a Bachelor

1.) There is a big difference between need and want.

2.) There is no such thing as harmless flirting. Play with fire, get burned (Proverbs 6:27)

3.) Know who you are without your significant other. They will compliment you, not complete you.

4.) Looks fade. Search deeper than that. That 6 pack will probably turn into a 1.
She's gonna look different when she wakes up in the morning than she does when you see her on your date. He's gonna smell. His muscles sag. And his sweet haircut will probably recede. 
(Proverbs 31:30)

5.) Date to marry. I've heard it put this way:
"Dating without intention to marry is like walking into a store with no money. You'll either leave with nothing or take something that isn't yours."

6.) If you're gonna date to marry, you may as well wait until you're near an age when you can actually make that move.

7.) The sooner you start dating, the sooner you're going to want to express your feelings physically and emotionally. Once the physical and emotional line that separates friendship and romantic relationship has been crossed, you can't go back. You may try to "just be friends," but it will never be the same (this one I know from personal experience).

8.) Your future spouse should be your best friend (and no, that doesn't mean to marry your current best friend of the opposite sex). Realize that you're gonna spend a lot of time together...A LOT! And when #4 turns out to be true, you're gonna need something else to fall back on. Make sure you're in love with their heart just as much as you are with their face and body.

9.) "
Don’t marry the person you think you can live with; marry only the individual you think you can’t live without." - James Dobson

  2. So, to sum it up. If you do date, then make sure it isn’t dating in the way that our culture has defined it. It should be dating for the purpose of discerning marriage with this person or not. During all of these times, make sure you are seeing a spiritual director who can help you cut through the noise and confusion that surrounds us, especially in dating.
