What does the Bible say about godly dating? What kind of person should you date?
Run from anything that gives you the evil thoughts that young men often have, but stay close to anything that makes you want to do right. Have faith and love, and enjoy the companionship of those who love the Lord and have pure hearts. It is unwise to date someone who doesn’t love God. Don’t be teamed with those who do not love the Lord, for what do the people of God have in common with the people of sin?
How can light live with darkness? And what harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a Christian be a partner with one who doesn’t believe? Amos 3:3, NKJV says, “Can two walk together, unless they are agreed? Don’t date someone who claims to be a Christian but doesn’t live it. What I meant was that you are not to keep company with anyone who claims to be a brother Christian but indulges in sexual sins, or is greedy, or is a swindler, or worships idols, or is a drunkard, or abusive. Don’t even eat lunch with such a person.
Avoid dating people who have a bad temper. Keep away from angry, short-tempered men, lest you learn to be like them and endanger your soul. Don’t date a lazy Christian. Now here is a command, dear brothers, given in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ by his authority: Stay away from any Christian who spends his days in laziness and does not follow the ideal of hard work we set up for you. Inner beauty counts the most. Be beautiful inside, in your hearts, with the lasting charm of a gentle and quiet spirit that is so precious to God. Date someone with a good attitude.
