Guarding your heart in dating
but on when YOU are personally ready to consider marriage as a course of action within a year or two.
Don't allow yourself to get into a long-term courtship that runs for 3 or 4 years (or more).
I've often seen those relationships, though physically pure, fail ...
So you do have to be prayerful about that discerning ...
Once you've opened up feelings, a relationship can move at a pace faster than what you are ready to handle.
It takes a lot of self-control to hold on to it not getting out of hand.
One way they guarded each other's heart was to communicate to each other in a way that anyone else could have listened in on their conversations or read their emails back and forth with each other.
Certainly they were aware of a growing attraction ...I'm 17, and I need some advice, mainly on how to follow in Kyle's footsteps from "Surrender".
