My first time to teach in Young Women's is coming up this week and the topic is....Group Dating!
I've been pondering a lot about this, especially this morning, and I decided I wanted to find out what YOU loved the most about group dating and maybe even share what was your most memorable group date experience.
As for myself, I loved dating in high school. I loved the relaxed environment that comes along with high school dating (no pressure to get married!). In high school, I had a lot of friends, both guys and girls. But when I was on a date, that young man's attention was on me for the night. And I loved every minute of it. Not in a selfish way, but in a it's-nice-to-be-appreciated-and-respected way. I loved when they would open the door for me or help me out of the car. They always stood by my side for the night. We usually got to know each other a little better than we would have. And they were always respectful. You don't realize how important it is to be exposed to such respect and appreciation as I mentioned until you are grown up and out of high school. Being able to see a young man act this way toward a young woman, I believe, helps us remember that we are of worth and that we don't have to be treated poorly by just anyone. It will give us a boost to carry us through the hard dating world of adult-life.
I also believe that group dating is so important for the youth in high school. Group dating protects us. Even the best boy and girl can fall if left alone too long (does anyone remember who said that??). And group dating is fun.
So please! Share with me what your favorite group dating experience was. What are some fun things you did? And why did you like group dating in high school?
Thanks everybody! Happy sharing!
