So all good Christian dating advice has to consider what kinds of interactions technology is being used support.
Keep interactions on social media without a flirting or teasing tone if it’s clearly going nowhere and there is no bid from either of you to try and define the relationship in any way.
And, yet, when you’re just getting to know each other or be in that new “boyfriend-girl” stage, it can get tricky trying to know just how far a boyfriend can or should lead.
So a good rule of thumb is to use marriage as a yardstick: while a boyfriend should not “lead” his girlfriend or potential partner to the level of a husband and wife — which is to say he is not yet charged by God to lead, cover, provide and protect — he can absolutely encourage her already present devotion and natural gifts.
Yet even Christian singles worry about being physically attracted to their potential partners when all the other “pieces” of godliness and faith in Scripture.So instead of looking to check the boxes — “does he go to church? ” look for those around your potential partner who can speak of their reputation.Over time you also want to observe an expressed seriousness in their hearts to grow and deepen their understanding of and relationship with God.The fact is the quality of “godliness” is going to be attractive and sexy to one who is truly God-loving because that value matters over all others — and thus beautifies your potential partner.Even if you don’t feel a physical spark, at first, keep your potential mate close because that friendship may begin to blossom in your eyes.
