Four Friendship Dates is a tool designed to assist Christian Single adults who have a desire to grow in communication skills and friendship building. It is also helpful for those who may be interested in exploring whether there is potential for a healthy relationship with a certain person.
Many couples move quickly from their first meeting or the acquaintance level and bypass the development of a friendship. They also skip any spiritual communication and move directly into a physical relationship or even marriage. They do this without making the effort to know who this person really is or taking the time to build a solid friendship foundation. This shortcut often results in painful or even catastrophic consequences.
This covenant is designed to address just such a problem. It will also help avoid hurt feelings from unmet expectations in a relationship. If it seems restrictive to you, this may not be the best tool or right time to use it.
Because Friendship is genderless this exercise may be initiated by either a guy or gal.
