While love is a beautiful thing, the breaking off of relationships is hard.There is a reason they call it a “broken heart.” God understands the power of love and the damage a broken heart can do.We need to realize that God means for us to meet the ONE person that we are meant to marry.

There are all kinds of advice out there about dating today, but a lot of it is about dating in the world rather than Christian dating.

Christians need to have a different attitude toward dating.

Be careful of recreational dating, where you date for the sake of dating.

God calls us to love one another, but the scripture is clear that He asks us to be careful.

It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

You do not need to date a lot of people – just the right one. The word “love” is thrown around with little thought. We live for God’s love first and foremost, but we also live for the love of others.

While there are many definitions of love, 1 Corinthians tells us how God defines love.

So make sure you are only dating those who share your beliefs.
