Lots of Unanswered Questions
it could be just me but i am still really confused about this subject since i read this book. the book did not make much since to me in areas such as the difference between friends and boyfriends/ girlfriends. it all just sounds the same to me! i read this book in hopes of finding answers, but all i really got was a migraine. i suggest reading books that put a Christian view into dating.Was this review helpful?

I read this a couple years ago
I read this book a few years ago when a guy I met said it 'changed his life'. So I took his advice and read it. I found it to be a good idea for a person who is not ready to court anyone. However, I think it's a little ridiculus to say that you're truly going to get to know a person inside and out without dating them. I know if I would have married the first person I thought god had sent to me, I would be in trouble. But I dated him for a while and found out he wasn't the one. That is why I believe it is necessary to date. Yes, it is wrong to have physical relationships with several people, yes you shouldn't just flit around from one person to another breaking hearts, but dating wisely is a wonderful thing to do. When I first read this book, I was going to follow it. But I found that it's nice to go enjoy a meal with a guy every now and then and try to get to know them. Now I am 'courting' someone special after going on a few dates to get to know him. I know that some will disagree with me, and that's fine, but please don't condemn any of us who choose to take the dating route. Also feel free to e-mail me if you want to talk about it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Friendships, take a backseat....
While not having actually read this book, I do have some firsthand experience of its effects. Ever since my best friend decided to adopt this book as her life's motto, things have been horribly different between the two of us, as well as between she and other friends. I don't believe in only dating someone unless you plan to marry them...how do you KNOW if you are going to marry a person if you never give them a chance? I don't date around, and I do know the meaning of true love. I am in a relationship right now, and yes, I fully intend to marry this man. What I'm trying to say is that God doesn't want anyone to be single. What kind of logic is that? He doesn't advocate promiscuity, and neither do I. Fun is fun, and you don't need to miss out on it just because you're not ready for marriage yet. It's not a bad thing by any means, and this book should be taken with a grain of salt. Don't let it destroy relationships and friendships.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
