Though God won't do all the work for you, he'll be with you every step of the way.
I'm not saying that God doesn't have a will regarding your dating life.
God may, in fact, have a spunky brunette in mind, and he's steering you toward her as you read this.
Christian culture is like any other in that we develop truisms that we accept without verifying.
There are things floating around that have little or nothing to do with the Bible.
Myth #1: "God has one woman picked out for you to marry.
You are destined to be with her, and God will guide you to her." Good luck finding this one in the Bible.
There is plenty of stuff about God's will for his people, God wanting good things for you, and God's ultimate plan.
Nowhere, however, does it say that God picked out a spunky brunette whom he's waiting to spring on you at the right moment. When it comes to God, I'm pretty careful about saying what he does or doesn't do.
Regardless of your theology on the Predestination of Girlfriends, you're probably eager to be an active participant in your dating life. Myth #2: "The Bible has clearly defined guidelines for dating." People didn't date in biblical times.
Dating as a socially accepted means of finding a mate has been around for less than a century.
But I do know this—if you rely on this idea too much, your dating life will get really confusing.
