What is the point of dating? If your’e not using the other person to make you feel better about yourself, then what’s the whole point? To practice for marriage? Why do 16 year olds date then? Are they practicing for marriage at 16? Do they seriously think they would be able to be in a successful marriage in a couple of years? The same thing could be said about a 21 year old. Are they willing to practice for 5+ years to see if they would be okay? With the divorce rate at 50%, I’m not sure if this practice is working. So what are we doing wrong? Are we rushing into relationships for the wrong reasons? Perhaps. It’s so hard not to. So many pretty and cool people around us, how can we not? Just be careful. What is the whole point.
