Question: "What is the difference between dating and courting?" Answer: Dating and courtship are two methods of beginning relationships with the opposite sex." or "What do you do when you live hundreds of miles from your family?"The goal of this series of articles, beginning with this introduction, is to provide our readers with a place to bring those questions.Or is dating a term reserved for only very casual relationships? In my opinion, dating can be a little more casual or more serious.For me, I don’t have to call a dude my official boyfriend in order to say that I “dated” him – and Gurl writer Caitlin is on the same page as me.Joshua Harris, for instance, has promoted a model of courtship that harkens back to a model used broadly before modern dating evolved.
I’m sorry, did we forget about Taylor Lautner, Joe Jonas, John Mayer, Cory Monteith and Jake Gyllenhaal (and those I forgot about)?The system today's young men and women have inherited for finding and marrying a future spouse leaves a lot to be desired.We often hear complaints from readers about the confusion, hurt and sexual sin they've encountered despite their best intentions.As stated before, during this time there should be little or no physical contact, as this is something that should wait until marriage (1 Corinthians -20).Courtship takes the position that the two people have no physical contact at all (no touching, no hand-holding, no kissing) until marriage.
