Moderator(s), why is there no "Report Abuse" button under Stuart Robson's comment? I see one under all other comments here. Strange...

Of course Christians CAN date outside the faith. The question in my mind is, Why? The Lord has told us that His people are not to be unequally yoked with unbelievers. People typically marry whom they date (duh), so it is definitely unwise to date outside the faith. It's too easy for emotions to get in the way of faith.

In general the discussion about dating standards is culturally skewed by our Western individualism. If you've seen a recent article circulating on facebook call "a gentleman's take on why women should never settle for less than they deserve" you see how distorted the dating scene is. I think porn has a lot to do with this distortion and the answer is not to go looking for the perfect believer but to go looking for another Lover altogether.

As someone who remained single by choice & fullness of life activities into my mid-30s, I admit it is hard to remain steadfast when much of American Christendom & society is married by the same age. It is even harder to remain steadfast when society is accelerating its worship of sex in myriad & ungodly forms. This means all the more that Christians should & must have dealings with those outside the Church as Jesus commanded, and to think otherwise would be to be out of this world or grossly ineffectively in it for Christ. However, this DOES NOT permit or suggest "missionary dating" or any similar activity as a beneficial or "approved" means of evangelism or being "relevant" to this world! There is a spiritual dimension to relationships which God expects us to protect (i.e. cord of 3 strands involving man, woman, Holy Spirit). If the Holy Spirit hasn't enjoined 1 man + 1 woman together in Christian marriage, a Christian is to prohibit sexual activity from polluting the future bond
