Christian dating no attraction
Christian dating no attraction - dating dress first meeting
’ This is a very modern question that most Christians in the time of the BIble had little control over.You were betrothed to someone from a young age and you married them.
God gives us commands for our good, he does love us!In many ways, marriage is about the private and exclusive relationship going public and permanent, rather than private and temporary. So, to enter into a dating relationship is to begin on the track towards marriage with someone.So the next question is ‘Can Christians marry non-Christians?I’ve explained to him why I dont want to go out with him again but he doesn’t understand. I’ve once heard someone say that we either enter into an exlcusive relationship with someone with the intention of marrying them or breaking up with them. (Now we may break-up having begun with the intention of heading towards marriage, that’s fine and a part of the temporary nature of dating). I’ve got to say at the start that I don’t know you very well, nor do I know your friend, so I’m going on guesses and generalities.You will find it much easier to not get into serious relationship questions if your relating is exclusively in group settings.
People going out spend lots of time alone together are almost definitionally dating (though it’s probably not a great idea to be so alone together when you’re dating anyway - but that’s another topic for another day).
If your pattern of relating looks like what dating people do (going out alone together, hanging out at home together alone etc) then it’s no surprise your friend still wants to consider you as dating. You are no longer dating so it is not appropriate for you to be alone together any longer.
Keep your times together as group times, with others. If your friend becomes a Christian, you are free to marry him (1 Cor ), so you are free to date him.
A quick, clean break heals much faster than a prolonged, messy mistake.
If Jesus is truly Lord in our lives, we often have to say ‘no’ to things even when they feel very good!
(I’m not in your situation, so I can’t tell you which one is best for you - you may be too close to the situation as well, you may need to ask someone you trust and who is spiritually mature, maybe a pastor or a Bible study leader, for their advice) 1. You may find that your feelings are just too strong for you to trust yourself with this guy.
