The non religious guide to dating and being single

Yet, recently, I foolishly got myself in a tempting situation where I ignored most of the advice you’ve just read.

When you know that a man is a temptation for you, respond by asking God to deliver you from that temptation.

This might involve not hanging out with him as much as you have been, cutting down on texting, not replying to emails or messages on social networking sites, and shortening phone calls. The more time you spend with someone, the more intimate you’ll become, with friendship quickly turning into something more. If you wouldn’t wear an outfit to church because it’s too risqué, why are you wearing it outside of church? So it’s important to keep close friendships with other women. I think it’s healthy and refreshing for Christians to treat each other as brothers and sisters in Christ, not as potential husbands or wives.

Make yourself accountable to another Christian regarding your sexual purity. I think it’s good to choose a Christian who scares you a bit—someone you respect. If you believe that God’s word says that you should only marry a believer, you may never get married.

And like any sin, if you sin sexually, you need to flee to the cross.
