One glance at the numerous books about love, dating, and marriage suggests that we're making a lot of this up as we go along.
Of course, there are biblical principles that are essential in dating.
There are things floating around that have little or nothing to do with the Bible.Most are well intended and contain a nugget of truth. Dating is hard enough without sifting through all this erroneous information, so let's debunk some myths.Before that, the couple has to take the initiative.Rather than directing the course of the relationship, God wants the couple to grow and learn how to make a commitment.Some Christians take a lot of comfort in the idea that God will do the heavy lifting when it comes to dating.
God will tell them if a relationship is right, and God will end it if it's not.He made fun of modern dating, saying, "By the time you get married now, the fun is over.In an arranged marriage, the fun starts after the wedding!There are some myths out there that people assume to be gospel about dating.Christian culture is like any other in that we develop truisms that we accept without verifying.You are destined to be with her, and God will guide you to her." Good luck finding this one in the Bible.
