Christian view on teenage dating

Love, dating and relating to the opposite sex are important factors in living out the "Purity Code".

How kids relate to the opposite sex and how they eventually date will determine the success of their relationships and say a lot about their Christian commitment.

“When men see beautiful women, they are more concentrated on how she looks because they want to ‘have’ her, and so they don’t want to go deeper and get to know her,” says Isabell Giardini, a 22-year-old Italian beauty signed with Major Models.

“And that’s why at the end of a date they wonder, ‘Oh that girl is so beautiful but so empty.’ That’s happened to me often.” Others say the stereotypes about pretty people being shallow are true, even if they’re hotties themselves.

“I could have [anyone] I wanted,” says Rochkind, now 40 and an Upper East Sider with a muscular build and a full head of hair.“I met some nice people, but realistically I went for the hottest girl you could find.” He spent the better part of his 30s going on up to three dates a week, courting 20-something blond models, but eventually realized that dating the prettiest young things had its drawbacks — he found them flighty, selfish and vapid.“Beautiful women who get a fair amount of attention get full of themselves,” he says.Our kids will be the better for it in the long run!Youth ministry meetings and events provide great opportunities for kids to work on their opposite sex relationships.The apostle Paul summed up the Christian attitude when he said: Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.
