You must decide before you go on the date what your limits will be.

The time to think through any potentially perilous situation is before it happens. If holding to your values is important to you, take time to identify them before you start dating. Many awkward and compromising situations can be avoided by simply being honest with your date about your standards.

If you traveled to a large city, you would get clear directions to your exact destination so you don’t end up in an unsafe area. If your dating partner resists your efforts to be true to your beliefs, then do yourself a favor—gracefully bow out. When facing any challenge, it helps to know you are not alone.

Enlist others who share your commitment to moral integrity.

Ask them to watch your back, encourage you hold firm to your convictions, and keep you accountable. And strength is what Christian singles need when navigating the tumultuous waters of potential romance.

Seek dating advice from a mature Christian you respect.

Chances are there is someone—a pastor, mentor, teacher—whose perspectives and opinions you hold in high regard.

Getting to know each other through meaningful talks reveals a person’s ability to be a good match for you.

Expressing opinions, beliefs and thoughts help Christians determine if a relationship has a promising future.

Don't allow peer pressure to force you into dating situations that are not appropriate.
