"Now Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel. Leah's eyes were delicate, but Rachel was beautiful of form and appearance. Now Jacob loved Rachel; so he said, "I will serve you SEVEN YEARS for Rachel your younger daughter." . . . So Jacob served seven years for Rachel, and they seemed only a few days to him because of the love he had for her.
"Then Jacob said to Laban, "Give me my wife . . . And Laban gathered together all the men of the place and made a feast . . .
"And he (Jacob) said to Laban, "What is this you have done to me? Was it not for Rachel that I served you? Why then have you deceived me?" And Laban said, "It must not be done so in our country, to give the younger before the firstborn . . . we will give you this one also for the service which you will serve with me still ANOTHER SEVEN YEARS." Then Jacob did so . . . So he gave him his daughter Rachel as wife also." (Genesis 29:1, 4-5, 9-12, 16-18, 20-22, 25-28)
When I was a teenager (fifty-something years ago), no one picked a girl and decided they would be dating. We went out with many girls -- no kissing, no sex -- just a good time at the beach, or bowling, or at the movies. Eventually the chemistry of love began working between a particular couple, and it became apparent they were meant for each other. Only then did they begin dating.
Even then, however, everything didn't necessarily go smoothly in regard to dating. In my own case, I found myself deeply in love with a very beautiful girl, and we began thinking about marriage. However, she went to college where she met a fellow, and wrote to say they were going to be married.
That hurt, but God had better plans. One of the girls I had often dated -- a short, real plain Jane -- had been waiting. When the letter came from college, Jeannette made sure she was at the head of the line for dates. At age 21 we married. We had a wonderful life together for three years, until she got sick and sadly died at the age of 24.
Life then took me far from home, where I met another girl. After a short courtship Betty and I married, and have shared life happily together for nearly forty years.
One last little bit of advice I can offer regarding dating is: don't mistake sex for love. If he wants you to prove your love by letting him use your body, there's not much love there. Prove your love, and let him prove his, by saying no until marriage. Thank you for your question about what they bible says about dating.
