It’s not that our teens were not interested in dates beyond a friendship, but we had talked through the few pros and the many cons of exclusive dating enough that they felt changing the relationship from friendship to romance might ruin the friendship.Our teenagers would all say that their prom dates were a lot of fun. Many of the parents were involved with before-dance dinners, chaperoning the dance, and hosting after-dance activities at homes or rented facilities.

I like to use the following illustration with kids when I talk about dating. David is not dating just Donna, a very cute girl with a beautiful smile and a terrific personality.

You might find it helpful in your ministry situation too. When our students decide to follow the way of radical respect, it will help to keep their life free of problems in the many relationships they have with persons of the opposite sex. Exclusive dating refers to two people dating each other. Inclusive dating refers to kids relating to many friends of the opposite sex. Inclusive dating provides kids with a great opportunity to hone their opposite sex relationship skills while providing a safer environment for them to stay accountable and on track in keeping the "Purity Code".
Our kids will be the better for it in the long run!
Youth ministry meetings and events provide great opportunities for kids to work on their opposite sex relationships.

In light of our reformatted definition of dating, we have the following very general age guidelines for spending time with a friend of the opposite sex (these are for our children still living at home).
An inclusive date can be five girls and four guys who go to the mall together. Far too many students begin exclusive relationships too early.
It’s three guys and two girls who meet at someone’s home for pizza and a DVD. I believe that most people who began dating at an early age would say they regret it.
If you are providing at least some time when kids can hang out and talk, that’s really all you need to do. Still, typically, there will be some students who are shy or haven’t yet developed the social skills necessary to initiate a conversation with a person of the opposite sex.
