Recently, Andy Stanley shared the 5 rules for dating. We featured these on our show Monday morning.

  1. Guys, ask girls on dates. And USE the word date. No more, “Hey wanna hang out?” Clarity is honoring and shows respect.
  2. Ladies, agree to go on dates. Don’t agree to “hang out” sometime. The bar is set on the first encounter. Respect yourself.
  3. Don’t ever mistreat anyone. If you’re a Jesus follower you’re taking your cue from how God, through Christ, has treated you.
  4. Don’t allow yourself to be mistreated. You are too good for that. That’s not arrogant. That is agreeing with what your heavenly Father says about you. And He knows.
  5. Don’t do anything that makes you a liar for life. All of your romantic events in life become part of your story.And you should write a story that you’re proud to tell.
