Dating is so very important! NeedEncouragement.comPlease contact us if you have any questions or comments or would just like some encouragement?

Dating is not a covenant relationship, and it ought not to be. It is time to get to know the person you are dating to tell whether you should get married.  Keep sex for the marriage, not before. The best dating advice is to get to know your dating partner well, take your time, ask profound questions, learn what makes them tick, and be sure they understand who the Lord is and want to follow Him too, just as you do. ~ Bill Greguska

2 Corinthians 6:14  Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?

Dating Advice: Get Anchored In Jesus!





Wise Dating Advice…When You Date The Right Person, You Will Know It!

“FALLING in love” is a DANGEROUS mix of words, like falling off a high cliff onto the rocks below; the end can’t be good! Please do NOT ever “FALL” into LOVE. True love takes careful observation, communication, seeking the Lord, getting His clear go-ahead, faithfully & continually holding the relationship before the Lord, willingness to give it up at any time the Lord says, “STOP!” True healthy LOVE is a beautiful growing Gift that has roots deep into the water of the Word.

My good friend Sue Sauer talks here about having a relationship with the opposite gender that will have some pain.  Her husband, Ron Sauer, says: “If you play football, you will get hit.  If you swim, you’re going to get wet!  And a relationship, friendship, or romance will produce hurt from time to time.” The secret is to recognize that and prepare your heart to respond rightly to the person who hurt you, bypassing/casting “ALL your care on Him because He CARES for YOU!” (1Peter 5:7). When two people get good at that, they reflect his kindness & unconditional love to each other in ways that build up and don’t tear down; ways that seek the other’s good, ways to heal rather than to hurt. ~ Sue Sauer

Good Dating Advice Is To Get To Know The Person Very Well!

Get some good dating advice!

Patience would probably be the most prominent dating advice that I can offer you. If you rush into a relationship or marriage, you will have an excellent chance of getting divorced. Be wise and be prayerful.

One of the best ways to get to know someone when dating is by asking questions and observing their behaviors!

  1. Do you swim? Mention some favorite memories?
  2. More questions you eventually may want to know:
  3. Their favorite verse & why? (Note if they wish to know yours too)
  4. Have they ever looked at Proverbs in friendships? Would they like to with you?
  5. What life goal(s) do you have?
  6. Do they like learning new things?
  7. Any particular subjects interest them the most?
  8. What’s on your “Bucket List”? i.e., What do you want to do in life? Goals? Prayers & plans to reach them?
  9. Future Hope? Proverbs 24:20 only evildoers have no future hope!
  10. How do they respond to your encouragement?
  11. You want to know how they evaluate friendships. (their level of discretion/reasons for intimacy with others.
  12. Are they a-worry-wart? If not, why not?
  13. Do you ever discuss the sermons from church?
  14. What are their gifts/areas of expertise/interest?
  15. Things they like to share with you would enrich your life.









Dating Advice: The Leading Of God, Not Of Your Hormones

  1. “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” That’s how the old saying goes. But as you start getting to know the other person, ask questions, and learn about your date before you consider letting yourself fall in love.
  2. Ensure your values and goals do not clash; if you would love to have children and your partner is not interested, it would be an excellent example of a conflict. It is also suggested that your spending habits ought not to clash with your date because money is an issue that creates arguments.
  3. Are there standards for movies and television like yours?
  4. Are they the type of person who keeps their word?
  5. Share on an as need basis, which means not to disclose personal shortcomings initially, yet at some point when more will need to come out in time.
  6. Do not get involved in any romantic relationship with a non-Christian. You can be friends, but do not date someone who does not hold similar spiritual beliefs. It can be a point of division in the long run.



Important Benefits Of Dating Advice!

Boyfriend-girlfriend dating should be to benefit a “brother-sister relationship.” The purpose of seeing what GOD will develop or NOT develop regarding anything more beautiful than each other, becoming more in love with the Lord because of this friendship, and learning things about each other that will benefit our understanding of what it is that we want/don’t want/need in a lifetime relationship.
Dating is more than observation from a distance or even a casual passing acquaintance.  It’s a particular time to test whether a Leadership-Helpmate relationship can be appreciated, accepted, and implemented in a deepening spiritual sense (keeping a close watch on the growing emotional-physical desires to please the Lord, keep clear heads and sense His blessing).  



Dating Is A Process, Not A Race!

  1. Observe your partner’s personality. Be sure that they are loyal, how they handle their temper, are open to what the Bible teaches, are not addicted to any drugs or alcohol, tend to be unselfish, honest in all areas of their life, like how they handle decision-making, values, respect, forgiveness, etc. But most importantly, how their faith in God influences their life.
  2. Practice manners from the start and prioritize them throughout the relationship. If you don’t hold this respectful attitude when the foundations of marriage are laid, it will be almost impossible to start them later.
  3. Don’t expect your partner to be perfect, which means things the media conjure up in our minds (muscular men/shapely women). Looks are fleeting, but good character is something worth more than silver or gold.
  4. Date with a purpose in mind. Guard your heart, and don’t allow yourself to be disrespected. Have high standards. Don’t settle for something mediocre when God has something exceptional for you.
  5. God intended sex for marriage, and as a disciple of Christ, it’s our responsibility to protect ourselves when we get married. The world has turned the sexual activity into a recreational sport when, in fact, God’s purpose for sex is for it to be a spiritual bonding between two married people. Don’t let the world influence your view on sex.
