and i think this is a really hard spot in dating for all parties involved.
it is this pivotal moment that demands our attention and action.
it is usually in this period of time when you’ve gathered enough information about the person that you’ve been seeing/dating to know whether or not you wish to continue.
what i see happening in my friends is the half unconscious half conscious evaluation of the costs and benefits of dating the person they are, understanding what they like and dislike about the person, and what comes next.
and coincidentally my friends all seem to lean towards ending things rather than continuing.
what sucks for everyone involved is that when the three month period becomes this crossroad point of dating there is usually one party that wants to continue dating, enter the next milestone and commit to the relationship, and one person usually saying, “eh”.
Swindoll has devoted his life to the accurate, practical teaching and application of God's Word.
Since 1998, he has served as the founder and senior pastor-teacher of Stonebriar Community Church in Frisco, Texas, but Chuck's listening audience extends far beyond a local church body.
As a leading program in Christian broadcasting since 1979, Insight for Living airs in major Christian radio markets around the world, reaching people groups in languages they can understand.
Chuck's extensive writing ministry has also served the body of Christ worldwide and his leadership as president and now chancellor of Dallas Theological Seminary has helped prepare and equip a new generation for ministry.
Chuck and Cynthia, his partner in life and ministry, have four grown children, ten grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.
so i have a few friends that are in this interesting spot of dating.
and what really hits me is that they all begin to react to this dating milestone in the same manner.
i’m talking about the two or three month in, stop and think about where this is going, intersection.
