Physical affection christian dating
If we’re really serious about “biblical dating,” than our Friday night rendezvous at Starbucks would probably need to include our entire extended family, a dowry, and a couple hundred donkeys, goats, and sheep somewhere in the mix.
I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a pretty awkward first date to me.
In fact, I have to chuckle to myself whenever someone asks me to give a “biblical” perspective on dating.
Not only is there nothing said about the topic, but the concept of dating didn’t even exist in biblical times.
Before continuing with this column, please review the preamble included at the beginning of this series, "Biblical Dating: How It's Different From Modern Dating." * * * PART 3: Just Friends » As Christians in dating relationships, we want to avoid hurting one another and dishonoring Christ by "defrauding" (see NASB translation of 1 Thessalonians 4:6) our brothers and sisters in Christ by implying — through word or action — a higher level of commitment to that person than we have made before God.
Whatever that conversation looks like, intentions should be clear and it should be the man making them so.
This is not the only way the early part of a relationship might look.
These are simply suggested applications of biblical principles.
Therefore, the more a woman knows how a guy flirts with body language, the greater her chances of picking up when a guy is actually interested in her.
Of course, knowing how to tell when a guy is flirting is an important skill to have, especially if there is mutual attraction.
