Dating is a stage of romantic relationships in humans whereby two people meet socially with the aim of each assessing the other's suitability as a prospective partner in an intimate relationship or marriage. It is a form of courtship, consisting of social activities done by the couple, either alone or with others. The protocols and practices of dating, and the terms used to describe it, vary considerably from country to country and over time. While the term has several meanings, the most frequent usage refers to two people exploring whether they are romantically or sexually compatible by participating in dates with the other. With the use of modern technology, people can date via telephone or computer or meet in person.

A guy should be able to kneel before God before he gets on one knee before you.

Just some food for thought.

As hilarious as this video is, I think it is pretty interesting how in the dating world, whether it is before asking them out or during, there are these games that the two individuals play in order to pull the other in. There is also this thought of who has the more power, and usually the one that likes the person less tends to be the one in power. Due to this kind of thought process, we are usually left unhappy in all or most relationships because we simply cannot accept when another individual truly appreciates you. GG

Dating From Around the World

I love the bit about Australians (I can't stand for a guy to pay for my meal) and Germans (seriously, what good is small talk to anyone?). And yes, the panda is relevant. It's Italian!

Discusses sex and relationships as it relates to the members of the Millenials generation. Very interesting read in light of our current cultural revolution.

I used to think dating was a battle between our heads and our hearts- but I guess maybe it's just part of our brain arguing with another part- Freud, anyone?

"Our culture has accepted and encouraged to be emotionally and physically intimate with someone WHILE getting to know them and BEFORE any type of commitment. We casually date without a purpose and get involved in relationships with no clear intentions, only to break up and do it all over again. The common belief is that we need to have several dress rehearsals (relationships) before showtime (marriage) is so not true! Stop dating to fill your void and let God mold you and prepare you for marriage." This pure piece of poetry by Janette truly represents the importance of waiting for the right person the Lord has in store for you.
