liveshemalesdating com - Bible and relationships and dating

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.

Even today in the cultures of the Middle East, dating is a relatively new concept.

The modern-day concept of “dating” looked far different 2,000 years ago.

Proverbs gives several characteristics of friends and friendships.

Prov.17: 17 says, “A friend loves at all times.” Prov.18: 24 says, “There is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.” Prov.27: 6 says, “When a friend rebukes you, that rebuke can be trusted.” Prov.27: 9 says, “The pleasantness of having a friend springs from his earnest counsel.” Prov.27: 10 says, “Do not forsake your friend.” These verses bring out the fact that the Lord blesses friendship and encourages us to develop them.

The process of meeting a spouse had very little to do with compatibility and personality traits, and everything to do with family lineage and economic status.

Finding a mate functioned a lot more like a bartering system than dinner and a movie.

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.

We should date for fun, friendship, personality development and selection of a mate, not to be popular or for security.
