Dear Kim, Thank you for your excellent question and for your patience in waiting for my response!It is a relevant question, in a society that pushes dating at such a young age.Usually Bill and his daughter made small talk on their brief ride home. Bill was concerned about the growing emotional distance between them. for now.” A tense silence filled the car as it eased forward and stopped in the driveway.* Bill is definitely a courageous dad, pressing into a relational hot spot where most parents fear to tread.
Others believe that dating can be a positive experience for teens provided they are mature enough and the parents know and trust the dating partner.
Therefore, I think it’s safe to say that this is the defining purpose of dating: to find someone to marry.
It is because of this that I really believe that a person should begin dating only when he or she is at an age and stage in life when marriage is a realistic possibility.
I believe it’s important to step back from the pressures around you and take a good look at the whole issue of dating. I hope that by giving you such a full answer, it will open your heart to the counter-cultural approach I am proposing to you regarding romance, dating and courtship.
