Remaining pure. Now there's a topic that's touchy. Personally, I agree with Josh Harris. Dating shouldn't be about our feelings. Whether or not this is the person you want to marry. That's the question you ought to be trying to settle. I already had vague ideas of this before I read Joshua Harris' book I Kissed Dating Goodbye and it's sequel Boy meets Girl but, reading it just helped clarify so many things for me. I now have clear-cut views about how to go about getting the right guy. That didn't come out right. Of course, I know whoever's out there for me isn't gonna be perfect and I know there's no "set of rules" about exactly how to go about finding someone. But, I have a point now. I'm gonna dedicate myself to being better. Always praying and asking God for guidance, wisdom, mercy, and help along the way. Working each day to become a better and better person so I can glorify God and, in so doing, become a person better able to love, honor, and obey, my future husband. I don't date. I will court - Though I know it really doesn't matter what you call it. I just love that term. - whenever I am ready and responsible enough to be married. (Although I'll obviously be having to ask alot of people before I'll know that.) I like that girl who wrote that article entitled Don't Kiss Me, I'm right there with her.
