Boundaries on dating

This book has opened my eyes about what a healthy relationship is and how to do it following Christ.

This has definitely changed my perspective on how to date and find someone while loving and honoring Christ.

It is often hard to acknowledge differences between people on the first few dates.

Unless you are someone for whom the philosophy “opposites attract” is paramount, you may find this difficult also.

I once went on a first date to a restaurant with somebody who proceeded to order my food for me. It was many years ago and I remember just sitting, making a mental note to myself that we would never go on a date again.

But here is the thing: I was also unclear to that I was bothered by the action.

My assumption about this person indicated that I was on a date with an old fashioned misogynist.

I hadn’t ever dated before, so I didn’t have a lot of experience in how relationships worked (except the stack of books that I’d read on the subject). In romantic relationships, we can mistake boundaries as a bad thing, or think they’re unnecessary.I was still a virgin technically, but I’d done almost everything a person can do before actually having sex.Through my next two relationships, I struggled through the same guilt, the same questions: How far was too far?Boundaries aren’t something just found in romantic relationships.More than likely, we already respect boundaries in our daily life.
