From the Author
My prayer is that this collection of short stories can be utilized as a tool for singles of any dating age--to encourage them to read and learn from the various dating scenarios highlighted within the book. I want readers to readily see the mistakes made during the dating scenarios and what pitfalls they may want to avoid. This book is best used by anyone wanting to date the way God desires--for those in singles' classes or ministries, book clubs or for personal study. The ultimate goal is to give those singles that are seriously looking for someone to date the tools to eventually turn a dating relationship into a life-time commitment.

Each chapter follows the same format:
Biblical Overview (frames the story from a biblical perspective),
Dating Mistakes with Biblical Principles (lists mistakes related to the story with description, biblical application, and related scripture), and
This book can be used as a personal study or for group study. I read the book alone. If this is a topic that is of interest, then it would be useful to keep a reflection journal and/or prayer journal while reading it. I think that this book would be more useful when there are others to discuss it, either in a book club or class group. This book will likely be one that readers will want to keep on the shelf for as a reference book, as the information covered is timeless.
The scenarios in the book really make you think. We all know people that have been in similar situations, or we have been in these situations ourselves. The included Scriptures help remind readers of how we are expected to behave when dating. This book is a great read and a must read for people who are truly interested in dating God's way. I also recommend this for parent's, friends, and family members who want to help loved ones navigate dating waters.
