Roman catholic dating etiquette
Why am I talking to you about shopping carts when this book is about dating?Well, I recall my bad luck with grocery carts because many times Ive experienced a similar battle of wills with dating.The pastor telling the story saw both of them years later at a high school reunion. When I see him, I remember it all so vividly, Jenny cried. When I see her, the hurt comes back, he told his former youth pastor. When the youth minister had finished telling this story, you could have heard a pin drop. But he gave no alternative that afternoon, Evidently the pastor thought the couple's only mistake was giving in to temptation.He seemed to think that Eric and Jenny should have had more respect for each other and more self-control.We want to stay on the straight and narrow path and serve God, yet we continue a practice that often pull us in the wrong direction.Defective dating Dating has built-in problems, and if we continue to date according to the system as it is today, well more than likely swerve into trouble.At the turn of the twentieth century, a guy and girl became romantically involved only if they planned to marry.If a young man spent time at a girls home, family and friends assumed that he intended to propose to her.
But by far the worst kind of cart you could pick is the swerver. (And, much to our dismay and embarrassment, it too often succeeds!
When I was a kid, my mom taught me two rules of grocery shopping.
