In fact, they are usually really enthusiastic about doing so.
We might even say that getting to know one another better and more deeply is (up to a certain limited point, of course) the very of a dating relationship.
On most college campuses, that likely puts the two of you in the same relatively small social circle.
Perhaps both of you are active in the same campus ministry, you go to the same church.
PART 6: Growing in Intimacy » In matters of dating or courtship, I generally recommend that people either get married or break up within a year or so of beginning a dating relationship.
I also believe that this recommendation applies with equal force to single men and women in college.
I've arrived at this conclusion by thinking through a number of biblical principles.
One of our bedrock governing principles in biblical dating — and in how we treat our brothers and sisters in Christ generally — is not to "defraud" our single brothers and sisters by implying a greater level of commitment between us and them than actually exists (see 1 Thessalonians 4:6).
If we act like we're married before we've made that commitment, we're defrauding (and sinning).
I don't know whether you've noticed this, but people involved in a dating relationship tend to get to know each other better over the course of that relationship.
