Ok the first I have to say that English isn’t my mother language and that’s why I may understand some meanings differently, but as I have learnt the word dating as an “event” (= go to dates) rather than form of relationship, I wonder does such exists in Christian life. The only girlfriend I really have had, I think I never had anything like dates with her. She lived 500km away and it was most of the times at least weekend we was together when we saw each other. Me, she and rest of the family. Even though we also had “private time” I would call, I lived along with her and family. But how does it differs from visiting my other friends, except I took time to be just with her alone.
