6 Reasons Why I Kissed Dating Goodbye


Love is in the air this love month! I can see lovers everywhere, couples that look like match made in heaven, holding hands while walking, or being so lovey-dovey on the street publicly displaying their affection, showing the world how madly, deeply inlove they are to each other. Making the single girls out there feel one less lonely girl.

Valentine’s Day, the most romantic holiday of the year is just around the corner! Display of hearts and cupids in malls, shops and restaurants reminded people of this love season. Teddy bears, flowers, chocolates and other romantic gifts on the store entice people to rush out and pick up something that will show their affection to their ‘valentine’.

Amidst all that, I know dating and being in a relationship can be sweet and exciting, but for the time being I resolved to kissed dating goodbye! Here’s the reason why:

    I tried dating. Then I tried asking. The Holy Spirit then led me to the right one at the right time circumstantially. It felt like I did nothing and that was probably the truth. There is no need to press into love. Striving rarely nets good results. On the other hand, resting in The Most High yields the best results imaginable.

      Oh, a blog to critique a book. I respect your opinion, in the same way I respect Josh Harris’ opinion about dating and relationship. Well, as a reader, the book is just a guide. We still have freewill to do what we want and of course the consequences attach to the actions/decisions we made afterwards.

      Nope. Its my first time to hear about that book. And about IKDG, I read the book last year and I’m only on my early twenties. Even though I already read it, I cant fully remember everything about the book. What remains is my subconscious desire to wait for God’s best while making myself the best and ‘noticeable’ so I can be the right one for that person. Hopefully, its really I kissed Dating Goodbye, not I Kissed Marriage Goodbye for other readers. But thanks for sharing to me your thoughts about the book.
