There is a person that Cam and I know that I'm always frustrated with. This person assumes they know everything about dating and that the church and every pastor has it wrong. This is because this person is still single. I believe this person has a very selfish perspective on dating and marriage. This person has also borrowed some extreme "worldly" ideas about how to date and meet the opposite sex and "Christianized" them. Which to me is really, really cheesy. It's sort of like those shirts or bumper stickers in a Christian bookstore that just stole a logo from a real company like Coke or MySpace and made it a terrible Christian saying that sort of rhymes.
It was refreshing to read this article from Relevant Magazine about dating. If you are a Christian you are called to a higher standard of living, in everything you do. Everything in your life should be about Christ first, then others. If you are a single Christian I think that you should be focused on you and Jesus, then we'll see about the rest. Marriage is not for happiness, it's for holiness.
Enjoy the read.
