Christian dating just friends
Still, given her desire for a husband — and perhaps to have man as her husband — the status quo of “just really good friends but nothing more for some odd reason” will leave her unsatisfied, frustrated and confused.
They tend to involve the sharing of many aspects of each other’s daily lives and routines.
But here I would pose the question that is relevant to so many aspects of the courtship and dating topic.
Why risk harm to your own heart or to that of a brother or sister to have a type of companionship that, outside of marriage, is arguably questionable anyway?
How intimate of a friendship with someone of the opposite sex is OK? Won’t the friendship be ruined if one of us expresses romantic interest and the other doesn’t respond favorably?
Basically, the question seems to be how exactly single Christians should relate to members of the opposite sex in that large and awkward zone between “we’ve never met” and a deliberate dating or courting relationship. I won’t repeat the full history lesson here, as several Boundless authors have already discussed it (Joshua Rogers most recently, in his excellent piece “Your Friendgirl Deserves Better“).
