Catholic view on dating relationship
Its like going mountain climbing with a partner who isnt sure that she wants the responsibility of holding your rope.
And if we look at intimacy that way, then most dating relationships are pure icing. In most cases, especially in high school, dating is short term, serving the needs of the moment.
People date because they want to enjoy the emotional and even physical benefits of intimacy without the responsibility of real commitment.
Despite the narrow aisles and glass shelves laden with delicate dishes, this person is expected to navigate the rows with a cart known to go off course? Yet this is exactly what we try in many of our relationships.
We see the failed attempts around us, but we refuse to replace this cart called dating.
