The New Testament clearly teaches that sex outside of marriage is sinful (1 Corinthians 6:9-11,18-20; Hebrews 13:4). Since that is true, Christians who date will want to choose activities in public places where conversations and healthy activities can be carried on without becoming involved in too much intimacy.
Keep the lust in check and the touching to a minimum (Matthew -29). Since dating may eventually lead to marriage, we probably should not begin dating too early or date one person too long, unless we are ready to commit to a lifetime relationship.
The singles I work with frequently come to me frustrated with, in their view, the Bible's lack of relevance and direction to the dating scene.
When we go out with someone, we should engage in lots of conversation and get to know what kind of person our date is.
It would be good to observe this person in church, in various acts of service, at work, and in various social situations to see how this person conducts himself/herself and how this person treats other people.
Instead, good dates might be to sporting events, high quality movies, a nice dinner, a good concert, a church activity, a museum, or a service activity.
Do the kinds of things that you, as a Christian, feel good about doing.
The servant of Abraham went to the people of the city of Haran and brought back a wife for Isaac.
Isaac did not see her until the night he married her (Genesis -66).Don't pray about whether it's right or not; don't waste your pastor's time asking him.God has spoken on this issue in His Word; it's not a grey area.You must date and marry a believer if you want God to bless your relationship. It seems like everyone these days is either having sex or at least talking about every detail of their sex lives.Despite the increased openness to discussing sex, people are still not satisfied with the end result.The Bible has very little to say about “dating” because people in ancient times didn’t really date.
