NAS: Dating vs. Courtship


It might be easy to say that the pursuit of marriage is the purpose of dating (aka courtship). But, that's not how our culture views dating. Does viewing the person you're dating as a potential spouse add unnecessary pressure on the relationship? In your opinion, is there a difference between dating and courtship? If so, what are those differences?


I had a half-written post... and then I started chatting with Morgan... and have compleeeeetely lost my train of thought.  And now it's getting pretty late and I need to go to bed (b/c as I am sure you know, I like to publish the link-up at midnight).

I will work on it more after work, I hope. :) Until then, I can't wait to hear what you have to say about dating and courtship! Link-up below!

Our Makeup Routines
(Thanks to Bek!)
What are your thoughts on wearing make-up? Do you see a tension between a pressure from society and a God-given desire to be and make life beautiful? Is your use of makeup compatible with the idea that God sees you as naturally beautiful?

October 7
Rosary + Single Life
October is dedicated to the Holy Rosary, so we wanted to honor Mary and reflect on her help during this time of singleness. How have you called on her intercession before? What is your relationship with our Blessed Mother like? If you don't know much about Mary or the Rosary, is there something keeping you from getting to know her?

October 14
Modesty
Continuing our reflections about our make-up routines, let's chat about modesty! What does modesty mean to you? Does it just involve the clothes you wear and how you wear them? What about the things you say or do? In what ways can we improve our overall modesty?

October 30
Sex!
Our culture is obsessed with sex. With anyone! At anytime! If you want to, just do it! But, the Church teaches that sex was created for the context of marriage. Why do you choose to abstain? Why aren't you going around having sex with just anyone? how would you encourage others to do the same? How do you remain strong when everything in our culture is encouraging you to abandon your convictions?
