Kissing in christian dating

God had finally given me the courage to end my relationship with *Duncan, a non-believer.

I knew that she had been praying for my mother’s salvation too.

But if you are following Christ and therefore care about the fact that the Bible says premarital sex is a sin, and like all sin is simply not the best God has for you, then the question about when to start kissing before marriage becomes more important. What the Bible Says The Bible doesn’t say a whole lot about dating, because dating as we know it is a modern invention.

The Bible talks about being single, then engaged, and then married.

I ended up going further than I should have physically, which I would later regret.

For some people, whose main goal in dating is to have sex as quickly as possible, the question of when to first kiss may seem irrelevant. The question comes up even more when you see people who wait until their wedding to have their first kiss. Is that why the ceremony says, “You may kiss the bride”?

For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? I was determined to make my relationship with Duncan work.

I was convinced that after I shared the Gospel with Duncan, he would believe in Christ and our yokes would then be equal. One year into our relationship, I began to hear God speaking to me. I had dreams of Duncan and I constantly fighting, of Duncan with another girl, and of me being in church with a guy who was not Duncan.

A kiss either leads to more or it leads to a breakup—but in junior high it doesn't lead to marriage anytime soon.

Some coed friends and I were playing spin the bottle and it eventually landed on my “crush.” After we kissed, I couldn't sleep that night. I had definitely “awakened love before its time.” Which wasn’t smart, because there was no way it could end well.

Day by day, we became closer and we started hanging out exclusively.

I shared my troubles at work with him and I enjoyed his company as he listened to me.

My mother eventually converted to Christianity when I was nine and I accepted Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior when I was 16.
