The stereotypes get old.” Of course, the problems don’t disappear when Christians choose to date only other Christians.
Over the years, I’ve put together a list of what I consider to be the top relationship advice for dating Christians (or those interested in dating).

Don’t purposely put yourself into situations that will only mess with your emotions.
There is a maturity and responsibility that comes along with the action of dating, and if your only reason for dating is “just because,” I would really encourage you to take a step back and not move forward in your pursuit.
He needs to stay central for us regardless of whether we’re single, dating, or married.
Relationships flourish when Jesus and His kingdom are the priority of both people, but falter when they aren’t.
The time to think through any potentially perilous situation is before it happens. If holding to your values is important to you, take time to identify them before you start dating. Many awkward and compromising situations can be avoided by simply being honest with your date about your standards.

If you put yourself out there and stay open-minded, we virtually guarantee you’ll find someone who’s great for you! By considering what’s important in your world, you might just discover a new-found love for your work, your family and your hobbies.
