Proper age to start dating
Dear Kim, Thank you for your excellent question and for your patience in waiting for my response!
It is a relevant question, in a society that pushes dating at such a young age.
I believe it’s important to step back from the pressures around you and take a good look at the whole issue of dating. I hope that by giving you such a full answer, it will open your heart to the counter-cultural approach I am proposing to you regarding romance, dating and courtship.
The Purpose of Dating: What is the purpose of dating?
The ultimate reason for dating is to find a spouse.
Once you’ve found someone to marry and you get married, you no longer engage in dating.
Two stand out as the most common approaches in our society.
steady dating: exclusively dating one person for a period of time serial dating: moving through a series of one romantic relationship to another What attracts young men and women to dating are typically different things.
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”!
They are craving the attention of a man in their life.
Young men are often looking for an outlet for their growing physical desires and sexual urges.
