Christian dating being friends first

Rated 3.94/5 based on 887 customer reviews

This reason, coupled together with the close nature of faith communities, makes it rather appealing for a guy simply to date someone with whom he is such good friends and who even is outside his faith community.

Once a couple is satisfied that there is something to take to the next level, the couple should develop a plan in how they can best get to know each other in “real settings” not just in Christian dating situations.This plan will include such things as spending time around family and close friends to enable each other to see how the other person builds and sustains all relationships. I do not suggest that the couple spend all their time together at this stage.
