Kissed dating goodbye summary
“ One other thought I have is those that the more one has in an approach like “kissing dating goodbye” such as with time and past opportunities the harder it is for one to see the problems with it. It is even harder to admit the problems when one has invested a lot and thus past up other means and opportunities. I will be curious to hear what comments anyone has on this.
For those who haven’t read my other blog pages, when I use the term “kissing dating goodbye” I am talking about the approach to single men and women that Josh Harris championed/promoted in his first book.
I obtained and read through the rest of the book and didn’t see where she even asked the question. Maybe being so sold that “kissing dating goodbye” is the “superior alternative” to dating (as a lot who teach that approach seem to be) that seeing this type of connection would be impossible for her?
I do realize that in most Christian circles there are typically more single women than single men.
Writing from the perspective of his teenage experiences, Harris decries the pattern that some people do (usually teenagers) of being a “couple” for a short period of time and then breaking up.
He also feels it is wrong to be “coupled up” before one is ready to pursue marriage.
I have no doubts that this culture where singles are afraid of each other makes it harder for at least some to marry.
