Dating and courtship in modern society

"A relationship between a man and a woman in which they seek to determine if it is God’s will for them to marry each other" puts marriage on the table when the couple have not yet committed to such an end.This is no different than dating when two people get too intimate too fast (I do not mean sexually) and give away a piece of their heart. I am now married to a wonderful Christian man and we have 4 children.As they establish guidelines for their relationship, they can more easily recognize that God also holds them responsible to honor one another.Receiving God’s grace and the support of others strengthens them to maintain their commitment to purity.Since the boundaries of the relationship are self-determined, the couple may easily succumb to temptation and fail to consider their responsibility to honor each other in purity and genuine love.

While those who choose courtship will hold to general guidelines for the relationship, their specific choices about when, where, and how to court may differ according to their needs and circumstances.

(See Proverbs 3:5–7.)Courtship is a choice to avoid temptation and experience the blessings of purity.

It is a choice to not emotionally give away your heart, piece by piece, to many others through casual dating relationships and instead to give your whole heart to your life partner.

Men and women who choose to date often have no commitment to consider marrying the other person.

Maturity and readiness for marriage are not considerations in the decision to date.

    You’re not wrong if you yearn for more; nor are you wrong for feeling that he’s “worth the wait.” The question is whether there’s a light at the end of the tunnel — or whether you’re just the emotional booty call who serves her purpose in his life but never really has a full-on relationship on her own terms. You just want a real-life boyfriend, who calls you every night, who has his weekends open for you, who is making a long-term investment. If he steps up to the plate, you might have yourself a boyfriend. And if you suspect that it’s not growing, it’s time to walk away and find out how much he has to give to you. I will agree with you Evan on the “fully integrated” advice to a point. Being selfish would be to demand he meet your needs and manipulate and create drama until he complies.
