Don’t think that your life experience in this area is the only way that God will call you.He can call you with or without the experience of dating.
Do these things and you will be on the path of discernment and dating.

So, let us get started: 1) Dating is a new phenomenon.
What we call dating and how we date currently in our society is a very new and novel way of going about forming relationships.
Ask yourself these questions throughout the time you might date: These and other similar questions may help you see the big picture. If you ever get to a point that you could not marry this person, then the dating should end. If you start to go beyond the boundaries you set, then you need to slow the relationship down, take a break from it, or end it.
