Christian relationship advice is different than relationship advice for someone who is not Christian. There are different expectations when you are Christian and believe in a certain way of life than when you are not and therefore what works for one person may not work for you.
Going against the grain of society can be hard to do, especially when it comes to dating. Your friends may be doing things that your Christian faith does not allow and therefore you can face teasing and ‘weird looks’ from your peers when you stick to your guns and do it your way.
And what is even worse is that Christian relationship advice can be hard to find. There’s plenty advice out there on the best sex position or how to make out on the first date, but there is a lot less relationship advice on how to stick to your faith and morals and do what you think is right.
So here’s some Christian relationship advice that can help you stick to your guns.
Don’t Feel Pressured
Just because someone tells you something is weird, not right, or dumb doesn’t mean it is. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and quite honestly most people believe what the majority tells them. Therefore if your friends are hearing that making out for an hour on your first date is expected that doesn’t mean that it actually is.
It is a lot easier to follow the herd than it is to go on your own path, and if you are living a Christian life then you are not going to follow the herd, that‘s just the way it is..
Find a Christian Advice Sources
Don’t look in the latest magazine of cosmopolitan if you want Christian relationship advice. Find material like books, magazines, and shows that focus on the Christian faith and stick to reading and watching those. You will find that it will be much easier to stick to your faith and believe in yourself when you are surrounded by like-minded people.
Make Friends With Other Christians
This doesn’t mean you should disclude your friends from your life, but you should have some friends of the same faith to discuss issues, problems, and beliefs with. It will make it easier to remember who you are, what you believe in, and where you are going in life.
If you don’t have any Christian friends then get out there and volunteer at Christian related activities and attend events of your faith. You will find that you will make friends at these places, or at least be surrounded by people you can talk to if you need to.
Remember What You Are Looking For in a Relationship
When my Christian friends husband approached her his first words were «I’m looking to get married» and she knew that he was the one for her.
Don’t date for dating sakes. Date for marriage. Be upfront with people you like so they know what you are looking for and that you are not willing to compromise your faith. It will help you weed out the people who are not willing to live by your faith. And when you find that one person who says «Me too!» you will know that you have met someone who can potentially be with you for the long run.
