Dating intimacy advice
Growing a relationship involves growing intimacy (emotional, sexual, etc.).Intimacy involves vulnerability; you become more intimate and thus more trusting and open with a person by virtue of the fact that you make yourself vulnerable in front of them and you learn that they will not abuse you.
Rather, intimacy has to grow organically and at its own pace.
If you don't accelerate enough however, you'll remain in orbit and never get down.
You have to modulate how much information you share with your partner at any given moment so as to keep your interaction both playful and serious.
All of these topics will, Lord willing, be covered in future columns.
It's simply impossible for me to address all of the fantastic individual questions and comments we've received, but know that we will do our very best to incorporate as many as possible into the columns themselves and the blog discussions that follow. Quite a few of you asked questions or made comments about my statement in Biblical Dating, an Introduction that "Biblical dating assumes NO physical intimacy" outside of marriage.
Many wanted to know, did I really mean no physical intimacy? Isn't it sex outside of marriage that Scripture explicitly prohibits?
