Boundaries for dating

With respect to pre-marital, romantically oriented kissing, we're clearly talking about an area about which reasonable believers can (and do) disagree.

Let me lay out what I view to be applicable biblical principles and passages on this topic.

Whether you’re casually hooking up or have been going out for a while now, setting boundaries is an important part of any relationship.

To have the healthiest relationship, both partners should know each other’s wants, goals, fears and limits.

Together, you can decide what feels healthy and what doesn’t for each of you.

At the end of each scenario, ask yourself how you typically respond based on past behavior.

We need to be able to tell other people when they are acting in ways that are not acceptable to us.

A first step is starting to know that we have a right to protect and defend ourselves.

Over the past few years I have written about boundaries, your personal limits of what you will and won’t put up with, many times.

Yet, every day I hear from women who even in reading about boundaries and knowing the importance of them are afraid to actually divorce on the horizon, and who are not over their ex. You’re not someone to pass time with while they figure out what they do and don’t want, and the moment that you involve yourself in any of the above situations, the person knows that they don’t really have to do anything.
