Wise Policies for Dating

By Harry01 | Road Map for Living | 27 Oct 2020


Before children reach their teens, their primary social relationships center in the family. During adolescent years, these primary relationships expand to include a best friend and then a girlfriend or boyfriend. Dating is usually the next step in social development. Frequently the boy and girl who date have been brought together through friendship contacts. Choosing the right friends and associates, therefore, is basic to healthy social development and preparation for successful marriage.

 

Friendship made at the church are likely to be more wholesome than those made at other places in the community. However, some young people attend church because their parents require them to do so, but they have no personal convictions or commitment to Jesus Christ. Their standard are no different from those of the world. Nevertheless, the best place to find friends is within the environment of the church. Choosing the wrong friends can wreck a boy's or girls chances completely.

 

If a person's standards differ from those of his friends, he will not find happiness in associating with them. They will put pressure on him to conform to what they expect, and his yielding will lead to shame, guilt, and loss of self-respect. Friendships help one to learn how to get along with others, but the wrong friends will influence one to go against his standard. Those who develop friendships with the right kind of people tend to marry better mates and live more happily than those who lead a more isolated existence or associate with the wrong kind of people.
