Don’t be impressed by what he/she says but how they live;
the fruit knows a tree it bears – watch the type of fruit produced.
Don’t date for the sake of dating if you desire to be married;
know what you want out of the relationship and discuss it with him/her – let them know you are expecting the relationship to lead to marriage.
Once you both understand what each wants –
don’t spend too much time alone if you wish to remain celibate.
Try to plan dates where there will be many other people around—
less temptation to touch and arouse sexual feelings if in a crowd.
Don’t let him/her caress you too often; that is if you desire to remain abstinent until marriage.
holding hands may be safe, as long as it doesn’t lead to caressing and fondling.
