The truth is, different personalities need different approaches to relationships. My only problem comes, then, with how “Dating” gets compared to “Courtship” in such a flawed and negative way.

Dating tries to answer the question, How can I find the one who will make me happy?

We should date for fun, friendship, personality development and selection of a mate, not to be popular or for security.

Don't allow peer pressure to force you into dating situations that are not appropriate.

It is a choice to wait for God’s best, for His glory.

It is a decision to walk by faith, to trust in God, to honor others above yourself, and to believe that God will deal bountifully with you, because He is love.

(See Proverbs 3:5–7.) Courtship is a choice to avoid temptation and experience the blessings of purity.
