Many have asked the question, “What is the purpose of dating?” Sadly, not many care about the answer.
Whether the dating relationship lasts five months or five minutes this question must get answered! If we don’t our heart is left in the balance, often broken from giving it away too many times. DATING IS NOT A CONTACT SPORT!! It’s a time when two people investigate compatibility, communication, and the serious possibility of covenant. If these things aren’t at the foundation of the relationship then what is it really? An experiment? A gamble? Why would I risk ruining my future by taking that kind of chance? Do I really want to offer my future spouse the left overs of a broken heart?

By keeping your issue a secret you are giving it power to destroy your life while it spreads as a cancer into your thoughts, actions, and relationships. Isolation is the worst way to live a full life, because it convinces a person that no one needs to know, that no one really understands, and ultimately, that no one really cares. That’s not true! Life on life community is the best way for a person to flourish in their understanding of self, others and God. However, when we spend all our energies protecting our secret from the world this mindset can create an independence stronghold that feels true but is a lie really killing you from the inside out.
