Young christian dating stories
In this article I am going to call it “dating” and define it as “the process of finding a spouse.” I do not claim to be an expert: I realize that many varying opinions about dating float around Christian circles jumping over each other, getting mixed together, and consuming some people. You wish it could happen soon but it completely freaks you out. Some people call this dating, other people call it courting — there are likely countless terms you could use for the process.So here goes: Your quality and purpose of life is not determined by whether or not you date or get married.Always pursue God and health (spiritual, emotional, and physical) and you will be fine.Well if you do, this is one story I know you’re going to appreciate. Because of the mental anguish suffered in my first marriage, I vowed NEVER to marry again.After my divorce in 1996, I was extremely broken and bitter.We started dating, even though I had put him firmly in the category of Not My Type.He was quiet, reserved, and didn’t seem to have the social chutzpah which I thought a man would need to have to deal with someone as outgoing, overeducated, and outspoken as me. Yet, even though he didn’t look like My Type, or sound like My Type, I found myself wanting him to think well of me.
And then, somehow, our paths crossed again, and I found myself interested in getting to know him.
He also became engrossed in his course work and delved hungrily into the advanced Scripture studies and the expository readings on church doctrine and history.
