There is a discussion going on entitled "Religious Rift". A Christian man wants to marry an atheist. My last post I said "Every Date is a Potential Date" So here is my question - what is the main purpose of dating? Is is solely for finding a mate? Is it to learn about a person? Is it sometimes just to have a companion? Do we date someone so we do not go to an event alone? What are other reasons for dating? Is there a difference between a teen, young adult (21-27) middle adult (28-44) and seniors dating? To what extreme should we take the thot "Every Date is a Potential Date"
