Teen Dating Part 2: 7 Tips for Young Ladies
Monday, June 5, 2023 by Dr James H Dotson Jr

To the teenage females out there who are currently dating or want to date, please consider these 7 tips. It’s a quick read.

  1. You are a child of God—a Princess of the King of Kings. Believe it, live it, and expect to be treated as such.
  2. Insist on being in a healthy relationship. If it’s not a healthy relationship, don’t delay and walk away. Key characteristics of a healthy relationship are:
    • Loving
    • Seeking God’s best for each other
    • Mutual respect and support
    • Communicating in ways that are meaningful and uplifting
    • Christ-centered / Holy Spirit-filled
  3. Dress modestly. If you emphasize your body, that is likely where a man’s attention will be focused—you may become to him just an object, a piece, a thing to use for his pleasure.
  4. Know that if you allow “vegetarian sex”—anything and everything short of actual sexual intercourse—a man will often take this to mean that you are willing to go all the way, and he will keep pressing to go further.
  5. Be cautious on the Internet! It’s a valuable tool, but there are predators out there who’d like to use, abuse, and exploit you. All that glitters is not gold.
  6. Beware! A young man is often able to use his words—sometimes it’s just a line—to draw you to him. Some are also very skillful in playing on your heart through romance, even though they may have absolutely no genuine interest in a serious relationship with you. 
  7. Guard your heart! Most young ladies have a natural tendency to want to be loved and cherished. Take care not to give your heart to a young man until you know that he will genuinely love and cherish you as a Princess of the King of Kings.
