Christian dating advice for young men
I believe: 1) Men should initiate the relationship.
2) Preparing yourself for a relationship is part of becoming a man.
I went to a Christian school, and the extent of our sex-ed was: “don’t have sex”.
As long as two people had a relationship with God and were virgins, there was no reasons why they couldn’t get married.
But the reality of the matter is that Christian dating calls us to a much higher standard than a Tinder hookup, for example, and with peer pressures and socially acceptable promiscuity, by the time we start to figure out what Christian dating should look like, we’ve already made serious blunders with serious consequences.
However, this will never happen for you personally until you, as a man, accept your God-given role.
Hang around Christian singles long enough and you're sure to encounter a certain emotion. Women, on the other hand, are frustrated because they want men to take initiative, to lead. Don't believe everything you hear; Christ-centered women still believe that God assigned respective roles to the sexes. I'll say more about this later, but for now I'll just blurt it out—it takes a man to be an initiator.
Men are frustrated because they don't understand what women want from them; and if they do have a clue, men feel the expectations are too high. How should Christian men and women move toward deeper friendship, possibly even engagement and marriage?
I didn’t learn healthy boundaries, things to look for in a potential spouse, what masturbation was, or how widespread pornography addiction is, just to name a few.
By the time I started dating at 18 years old, I had no idea what I was in for.
