I always say to people that as we date, we should be focusing on the person in front of us.Fostering commitment, even though dating won’t necessarily end in marriage, is important for thriving relationships.Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything” (Ephesians -24).Paul tells us that a wife is to be submissive to her husband, out of love.Physical: Are you okay with public displays of affection? Do you hate it or love it when your partner tickles you? Do you need your partner to be available anytime you have a crisis? When your needs are different than your partner’s, have a conversation; you don’t need to give an explanation.It may be awkward, but having the tough conversations is a part of having a healthy relationship.I always say that dating isn’t marriage, but dating should still involve commitment and intentionality.

Are your beliefs close enough that you can agree to teach your children the same doctrines? For men, it’s important to look at what a Christian wife is supposed to be. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, His body, of which He is the savior.I go on first dates with abandon (read: I have no standards).From all this experience I have learned three things: most first dates will not be awesome, a select few first dates will be the exact opposite of awesome, and even fewer will be truly wonderful.Our dating dynamics should foster enjoyment, trust, and commitment, to give the relationship the best chance.Which means: Don’t Look Twice; Stop Filling Our Heads; Watch The Flirting.
