All they have to do is sit back and enjoy the ride.
There are things floating around that have little or nothing to do with the Bible.
Most are well intended and contain a nugget of truth. Dating is hard enough without sifting through all this erroneous information, so let's debunk some myths.
There are plenty of them, but let's focus on what I believe are the top five myths that make dating harder for Christian men.
Myth #1: "God has one woman picked out for you to marry.
Nowhere, however, does it say that God picked out a spunky brunette whom he's waiting to spring on you at the right moment. When it comes to God, I'm pretty careful about saying what he does or doesn't do.
But I do know this—if you rely on this idea too much, your dating life will get really confusing.
There are some myths out there that people assume to be gospel about dating.
Christian culture is like any other in that we develop truisms that we accept without verifying.
Some Christians take a lot of comfort in the idea that God will do the heavy lifting when it comes to dating.
God will tell them if a relationship is right, and God will end it if it's not.
German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer addresses this issue in a wedding sermon he wrote for his sister from a Nazi jail cell.
