Dating Tips for Christian Men. My marriage day is only a few months away. As Denise and I start pre- marital counseling and begin this new journey together, I’ve been thinking about our time in the awkward middle — you know, when you’re not married or single. Let’s face it: dating for Christians can be weird, so maybe the pointers below will help. Before we get to the tips, however, I’m writing this blog post with a lot of assumptions. I’m assuming that the girl you’re dating is actually a Christian. I’ve intentionally made this post brief because I think that we can over- complicate dating.
But I do think a few points are worth making. Some of the popular points are helpful, but they never seem to address the core issues.

Yes, don’t be unwise and hang out alone all the time. Pursue friendship and fun. You should seek to be purposeful.
But that doesn’t mean you have to be miserable. Become her best friend. Know what she likes, what she doesn’t like.
Know what makes her happy, what makes her sad. Eventually, you should be her #1 cheerleader and best friend. This part is hard, and Lord knows I haven’t been perfect. But take heart: If you’re pursing godliness, the Lord will sustain you and keep you on track.
Then read Sex, Dating, and Relationships, and keep doing point number one listed above. Paul makes over 2. Christ in the New Testament.
That means you’re as secure as Christ is. Feast on the gospel daily, and allow the power of the Spirit to empower your pursuit of purity. Non- Christians won’t get you, and they may call you prude or weird or whatever for intentionally pursuing marriage.
The pain is worse if it’s from family. Listen and be kind, but you just may have to ignore the naysayers.
And if you’ve been dating a girl longer than 1. And often we Christians tend to over- complicate and hyper- spiritualize everything.
But if you pursue holiness, purity, friendship, and community, you may not be far away from marriage — which is something you should also pursue. And hopefully without regrets. As Kevin De. Young says, “I’ve never heard a Christian couple regret all they didn’t do before they were married.”This article was originally published at gospelrelevance. Used with permission.
