The question that is often paramount in the mind of many Christians who desire to enter into the world of dating is ‘How can I have a Godly dating relationship.’ This is the cry especially of those who have not been Christians from childhood and have had relationships before becoming committed Christians. This article will give you some insights on how to achieve the goal of entering into a Godly dating relationship. A mature woman will not fuss on silly things. She will understand you better because she understands herself and her emotions. She remains in control of situations and knows how to handle them. When she meets with difficult situations she rises up to them and can seek out to ways that are less destructive to her relationship and to others around her.

Of course, there’s always the chance that I’m (shocker) wrong – maybe eight weeks is far too early to call it – maybe I’m going to miss out on swathes of wonderful, slightly indecisive men who need longer than a couple of months to decide if they want to be in a relationship. They’ll end up with women much more nurturing and patient than I, who realised that all they needed was a bit of time and gentle guidance.

I was helping a single client with her Facebook page recently. Her male friends-of-friends kept posting raunchy, crude posters on her page. I advised her to change her settings to prevent their posting. I further suggested that the next time they text her funny” pictures that contain the f-word or are mean-spirited or crude in any way, she should reply with Please don’t send that stuff to me—I don’t like it.” Then make like a ghost and disappear.

Modern dating tends to assume that you need to get to know a person more deeply than anyone else in the world to figure out whether you should be with him or her. The biblical approach suggests that real commitment to the other person should precede such a high level of intimacy.

It simply isn’t that hard to imagine what your children would look like or where you would vacation together or how family holidays would work or what kind of house you might buy. And just like sex, all these things could be really good and safe and beautiful, but in the context of your covenant. Satan wants to subtly help you build marriage and family idols that are too fragile for your not-yet-married relationship.

Early on in a relationship couples talk as friends, they do fun things, but over time, those ways of connecting change. Work, family, financial problems, all have a way of taking over daily life and eroding the sense of fun that brought you two together in the first place. Bring the fun back – even if you have to book it into the calendar once every week. Sharing a physical activity, like a bike ride or a walk in the park, is especially good for lifting your spirits, along with your heart rate.Dating and Relationship
