German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer addresses this issue in a wedding sermon he wrote for his sister from a Nazi jail cell.He says that God joins the relationship between a man and a woman at the point of marriage.He made fun of modern dating, saying, "By the time you get married now, the fun is over.In an arranged marriage, the fun starts after the wedding!Dating as a socially accepted means of finding a mate has been around for less than a century.Before that, strict courtship rituals governed the path to marriage.But, as in all things, it's best to ask for his guidance.The Bible promises he will provide that whenever we ask.
Of course, there are biblical principles that are essential in dating.
Rely on God's love, wisdom, and sustaining presence while you're dating.
Though God won't do all the work for you, he'll be with you every step of the way.
You are destined to be with her, and God will guide you to her." Good luck finding this one in the Bible.
There is plenty of stuff about God's will for his people, God wanting good things for you, and God's ultimate plan.
