Dating versus relationship
If, during the courtship, one or both parties realize that marriage is not God’s will and they end the relationship, the courtship has not failed.On the contrary, the courtship was successful, because God gave the direction that was sought through it.
Under the protection, guidance, and blessing of parents or mentors, the couple concentrates on developing a deep friendship that could lead to marriage, as they discern their readiness for marriage and God’s timing for their marriage.As they establish guidelines for their relationship, they can more easily recognize that God also holds them responsible to honor one another.Receiving God’s grace and the support of others strengthens them to maintain their commitment to purity.It is a choice to wait for God’s best, for His glory.It is a decision to walk by faith, to trust in God, to honor others above yourself, and to believe that God will deal bountifully with you, because He is love.You've had "the talk" Instead of playing the guessing games you and your partner should discuss the extent of your relationship.

A few days ago I was sitting outdoors and having a coffee at this little French café when I overheard a conversation between a man and a woman. He drops his bags, turns towards the woman he realizes he can't live without, and he asks her the question we've all been waiting for... " They run into each other's arms, look into each other's eyes and kiss that long passionate kiss, and you sit there sobbing, dabbing your eyes with a tissue as the credits roll. Movies generally portray picture perfect relationships with a happy ending, however real life relationships are not quite so predictable -- and that's where "the talk" comes in. Consider the alternative: after a few months of singles bars and online dating, you finally meet the most amazing guy.
