Physical touch/intimacy should correspond with commitment. This doesn’t mean anything goes if you are engaged. What is your motivation -- power and control, gratifying your own ego, meeting a selfish need, or genuine affection?
If you feel convicted of certain behaviors, stop doing them.
If you are dating someone who doesn’t have a personal relationship with Christ, you are playing with fire. Don’t let the relationship progress to a physical point and then hope you can cut it off later. You need all the help you can get in today’s world. Do you depend on Him to meet your needs of love and security?
If you can’t stand the person but have a great physical relationship, rethink the relationship. If one person is uncomfortable with any type of physical expression, don’t do it. Don’t push a date to do anything that makes him/her feel uncomfortable.

You must decide before you go on the date what your limits will be.
It’s too difficult to think when passion overtakes you. You can resist temptation if you put on the whole armor of God (Eph.
While a guest is in the room, the door must be propped open a minimum of six inches.” Seriously, this was a rule. Here’s when you know your physical boundaries in dating relationships have gone too far. And now it’s going to look REALLY awkward when your roommate accidentally walks in on you. Good luck defining those adjectives when you’re in the moment. I have recently enetered a relationship with a christian girl, and both her and i have a growing concern about having a relationship that pleases GOd…so we have been talking and not sure on what boundaries should be set in order for us to glorify God at all cost , we no the main one is no sex before marrige….But before we look at some of the principles, it is worth noting that God is not a kill-joy.In fact, his desire is that we live life to the full!
Your boundaries are written in magnetic letters on your fridge.
