Questions to ask yourself before dating someone

Ever been around a girl who can't do anything but put down her boyfriend?

The big-ticket items, like family, marriage, and views on monogamy are conversation-topic musts before leaping into serious commitment.

When we’re young, we believe that the purpose of a romantic relationship is to provide you with an ultimate family: first a partner, then kids.

But the purpose of a romantic relationship isn’t about procreation, necessarily.

Are you looking for simple companionship, or a more involved relationship?

Can you envision a new relationship potentially ending up in marriage, or are you simply trying to meet new people?

While you can't predict the future, you can make choices that will help guide you to relationships that are both exciting and honoring to God. As you think through potential dates, ask yourself these questions: 1. "Don't judge a book by its cover." That's how the old saying goes. (For instance: You value good grades and plan to attend college; your potential date regularly cuts classes and has no plans for life after graduation.) Do they have decent standards when it comes to the movies and TV shows they watch?
