Bible verse for dating

If you want to shoot for a lifelong, God-honoring union with your best friend, then that is when you know it's time to start a romance (Genesis ; Matthew 19:5).When in doubt, ask God for guidance and be prepared to trust and obey Him.

Even today in many areas of the Middle East, dating is a relatively new concept and couples can’t even be seen together in public unless they are officially “engaged” to be married.I suspect that this would be an inferential conclusion, and thus would have to be considered a matter of personal conviction, rather than as a clear biblical prohibition.One could certainly ask, “If a Christian cannot marry an unbeliever, why would they ever date one? I think one can have a friendship relationship with an unbeliever of the opposite sex, without entering into a dating relationship.Type the word “dating” into your Bible search tool and what comes up? When I was single, I remember wishing there was an entire book—or even just a chapter—of the Bible dedicated to the topic of dating.But though the Scriptures are filled with foundational life-changing truths, there are plenty of topics the Bible doesn’t specifically speak to.
