5.) Try Being Friends
The best relationships are based on friendships before everything else. Dating is about trying to get to know the other individual. Take dating slow. The longer you work on building a friendship, the more success you will have during the relationship.
4.) Talk to Each Other
While emotions may bring about sexual desires, couples should work on building strong communication skills. Try talking about a wide range of topics including traveling, fashion, hobbies, politics etc. You never know what interests you both share. Also, use conversations to establish the limits you both want to set for your relationship.
3.) Try Dating With Other Christian Couples
Dating with other Christian couples can be a great experience. Engaging in activities with like-minded individuals can help maintain purity in your relationship as well.
2.) Be Guided By Love Not Lust
Evaluate your feelings. Make sure you are falling in love with the person and not attracted to the individuals physical appearance. This will test your self-control.
Pray throughout your relationship. Praying together will help you two grow together in God’s love. Spend time on your knees praying God may guide you to what He wants you to fulfill. When all else fails pray. Prayer is sure to guide you in the right direction.
