If you were to ask me several years ago to give you a rundown of courtship vs dating I would have easily pulled out my notes and let it rip.But the more I read online, the more I’ve seen that (at least in Christian circles) courtship and dating mean different things to different people.It’s common for people to swing from one side of the pendulum to the other.

Recently, after someone I’ve mentored finally decided to declare that they were in a relationship, they didn’t know if they should call it dating or courting.Both terms seem to have connotations that their belief system doesn’t represent.If you feel “right” together, if you’re having fun, if there’s passion and pleasure, then it must be a good relationship.But if this is the foundation of a relationship, commitment is often trumped by chemistry and loyalty is often replaced with lust.

Rather than trying to navigate through the world of dating in a healthy way, it’s easier to overcompensate for one extreme by simply developing another.So in the Christian community, models of courtship, no kissing until the altar, “God-told-me-to” break-up excuses and other confusing circumstances abound.” Our struggle as human beings is maintaining balance.
