In fact, I have to chuckle to myself whenever someone asks me to give a “biblical” perspective on dating.Not only is there nothing said about the topic, but the concept of dating didn’t even exist in biblical times.The process of meeting a spouse had very little to do with compatibility and personality traits, and everything to do with family lineage and economic status.

How can dating be done in a way that’s healthy and righteous?The best way to have a healthy dating relationship is to become a healthy person.
