However, the fact is, our generation is getting married later than ever before.
Thus the dating process has been prolonged, and therefore the need to learn how to date has also increased.
I remember after I graduated from college, a nice guy* from work asked me to grab dinner later that evening.

Joshua Harris is senior pastor of Covenant Life in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
The years I spent trying to work out how I could come across less ‘worldly’ and more ‘innocent’ because that’s the type of girl I saw men in the church going for. Something I had been told my whole life that I “should” do.
The year’s I spent trying hard to push down my opinions on equality because a guy at church I had a crush on when I was 19 said I was ‘too feminist’. It also didn’t help that when I was 26, a pastor stood up and told a group of us the dismal statistics as to how few men there are in the church compared to women.
This is my attempt to share some of my thoughts on “kissing dating goodbye” and “courtship” practices. If nothing else I hope to encourage people to think about the concept and decide for themselves what is most important for them in their situation.
Note: Much of my criticism of the “kissing dating goodbye” approach is from the perspective of a single person in his 20’s and 30’s who was involved in churches where this approach was the norm.
and right then and there, I decided that I wanted a Joshua Harris kind of guy to come knock on my door, ask for my hand in courtship and then off we’d go to live happily ever after.
However, 10 years later I started to realize that in fact is not very realistic, at least not for many people I know. It’s filled with ups and downs, accompanied by text messaging and facebook friend requesting and clicking the eharmony “closing communication” button.
