How to keep a christian dating relationship pure
At the same time, realize that you can't stick to your promise without his help.
Rather than making the innocent expressions a mere prelude to the "heavier stuff," make the most of them. Express tenderness by simply putting your arms around each other.
After all, pressing my lips against your dog is surely not sensual and would therefore require no self-control or internal guidelines.
But there are those kisses that can be too much too soon.
It's OK to express your love in little ways, but don't start messing with the package that is sex.

Soap operas, certain songs, books, television shows, movies and Web sites only turn up the pressure. 5) Make a promise to God, and daily renew your commitment.
To get really practical, avoid French kissing and petting—anything that is sure to ignite the fires of passion. Feeding your thought life with junk only makes it harder to remain pure in your actions. Decide where you're going to draw the line, and tell God that with his help, you are not going to cross that line until marriage. The Bible says it's a serious thing to make a vow to God.
