Age start dating
I say that because often times you can learn enough about someone in friendship to determine it would not work romantically before entering into a dating relationship.I believe you should start dating once you can no longer determine what you need to know from the friend-zone.A mature 18-year-old young man may be ready to be a godly husband more than a 35-year-old guy still unemployed with a quick temper. Most 25 to 30-year-olds will be more mature than most 18 to 25-year-olds.That’s a generalization and does not apply to everyone.I say “ready” not in the sense that you will be the perfect spouse, but ready in the sense that you are prepared to fulfill your biblical role as a husband or wife.If you are a male, are you ready to provide, protect, and lead your wife?I knew it was time to start dating Bethany after we had progressed as far as we could in our friendship.
Therefore I believe Christians should only start dating when they are ready for marriage.
You won’t know if you do want to marry that person by just being friends. Eventually you will need to progress from friendship to learn other things about that person which you can’t know as friends. Christians should start dating once they meet someone that they like but they need to progress past friendship to learn more about him or her.
