Dating kissing a couple
Note: Before you bust out your calendar to start counting each day, just use the 100 day calculator on Naver!
Kissing and cuddling while in a Christian dating relationship, Pastor Jim shares his thoughts about physical contact while dating. Aside: We have more than a few testimonials (including Carolyn and Marty – “Our first kiss was at the altar” – and Veronique and Thomas – “And, yes, that [wedding] day we exchanged our very first kiss on the lips”) of couples who waited until their wedding day to have their first kiss. Today I received an email asking whether or not kissing and cuddling are considered a sin.
Give this advice piece a read and let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
There is nothing sinful about the activity of kissing or cuddling, depending upon the definition one gives to these words.
However, it appears that in today’s society that distinction is changing. If a kiss leads either party toward stimulation of a sexual nature, I would urge you to back away from that activity as singles. I invite you to read the story of David, Samson, and even Solomon in the Bible and see what price they paid for pursuit of pleasure.
Cuddling As for cuddling, this can be harmless but the physical contact involved presents vulnerability and it’s so easy to take the next step.
Each of them needs to define what it means to them.
Note: Of course, this is not the only way Koreans meet potential baby mamas and daddys.When is it okay and when is it something that becomes unhealthy?Define what it means The first place to begin in considering this type of interaction is with the couple involved.There’s even a few other “types” of blind dates, but those are specifically for different purposes: 미팅 (meeting) – A group blind date, mostly for young college students.A group of guy friends will meet a group of girl friends to hangout and have a good time. This is a very serious date, where both parties have expectations of marriage right from the beginning (including/especially parents).The topic is one that needs to be openly discussed and mutual acceptance of a definition that works for each of them.I am reminded of my definition for sex: any activity that has as its intent or develops into a sexual stimulation is sex.It is Christian and non-Christian alike that are in this group.I am not about laying a guilt trip but in openly sharing the truth to save unnecessary heartache and bodily harm.Instead of leaving things up to chance encounters (which can result in murderous strangers), Koreans prefer potential mates to have a reference to make sure both of you will be (to some degree) a match.Having that friend as a buffer will make sure he/she isn’t some crazy drunk that’ll come banging on your door at 3AM.
