Like any relationship, dating and marriage should not be put into a box. Remember, you are trying to figure out if the two of you are a marriageable match. Your relationship is not so important that you cannot enjoy yourselves! Do romantic things, do normal things, do things together, and do things with your friends!
Talk and interact with them, face-to-face if you can, but give them plenty of room to breathe. The purpose of dating is to see if two people are a match.
Always pursue God and health (spiritual, emotional, and physical) and you will be fine.
If you meet someone who you want to do life with or that God is laying on your heart to pursue romantically, then you will still be fine.
There will be differences, but they do not have to break the relationship. I mentioned it before, but it’s worth repeating: always pursue health.
It will benefit all of your relationships, ministry, career, and potential marriage.
It’s also hard, excruciating, joyful, hurtful, and incredibly fulfilling — at least this is what married people tell me, and from watching them, I believe it.
