I’m new to this whole dating thing.

My boyfriend, Caleb, and I have only been dating a mere five months. Before that, I had always been single. So, when he and I started going out, I wondered how I could be a good girlfriend. After all, I had zero experience in that area.

  2. I looked on Pinterest for girlfriend advice :P

Confession: At first was able to find a whole lot more of girlfriend advice on Pinterest than I could in the Bible.

There isn’t exactly a “Dating Chapter” in the Bible. There isn’t a section saying “Thou shall do ABC on a date and thou shalt not do XYZ.” In fact, the word “dating” isn’t mentioned in the Bible at all.
