It is an old fashioned term for romancing, and not in a sexual way.Dating can be much more casual than that, as in let's go out and catch a movie. I have some friends who are guys sometimes I'll ask them, "How has dating [so and so] been? " and their answers are usually something like, "I'm just courting her, not dating silly" So my question is what, if any, is the difference, and if you are courting someone, would you...
It is fantastic to make a solid commitment to pursue God’s standards for romance either as an individual or as a family. The answer is they aren’t as different as some might lead you to think.
But just because someone else is doing the same thing but calling it something different doesn’t meant they are any less committed to sticking to God’s plan for romance. The bottom line is that God asks you to wait on His timing for romance, to only date guys who love Him with their whole hearts, and to do whatever it takes to stay away from sexual sin. Note: I will answer one of your love questions each Friday this month.
Do we really even know what either of those words mean?
Or, are they just synonyms of each other–two different words essentially meaning the same thing?
The rules of courtship are different in all parts of the world.
