Our sex-crazy culture makes it appear that sex is everything in a romantic relationship.
A physical relationship is often mistaken for love, and the couple rushes into marriage.
Getting involved sexually almost always destroys a relationship. A marriage or a romantic relationship based on sex will not last.
but if the couple has been involved sexually, the breaking up is ten times worse.
Each is putting on his or her best front which makes it difficult to evaluate the other person’s true character.
Anybody can put on a good “front” for a short time, especially when they are doing what they want to do.
Picnics, skating parties, school functions, and church socials are ideal for first dates.
You are sowing seeds of future success or failure in your dating years. Most young people realize that the relationship is temporary. Both guy and girl realize that either one is free to break up the romance at any time for any reason.
but as two people become romantically involved, they begin to bond emotionally.
Often they are frantically trying to find someone who shows an interest in them.
Their normal caution is put on “the back burner.” They often jump quickly into another romantic relationship, which turns out to be worse than the first one.
