Motivations generally fall into four main categories, according to psychologists at UT-Austin who asked more than 1,500 undergraduate college students about their sexual attitudes and experiences: Generally speaking, men seek sex because they like how it feels.Women, although they very well may also derive pleasure from the act, are generally more interested in the relationship enhancement that sex offers.You can receive a messasge or an e-mail from one of these women today.Your partner may come up with a dozen excuses to say "Not tonight, dear, I have a ____," but how many reasons can the two of you name for wanting to have sex? It’s a stark contrast from historical assumptions, which cited only three sexual motive: To make babies, to feel good, or because you're in love.In fact, I have to chuckle to myself whenever someone asks me to give a “biblical” perspective on dating.Not only is there nothing said about the topic, but the concept of dating didn’t even exist in biblical times.Researchers describe these differences as body-centered versus person-centered sex."Men often start out being body centered," says University of Hartford adjunct psychology professor Janell Carroll. As men reach their 40s, 50s, and 60s, their relationship becomes more important." Richard Carroll has been counseling couples with sexual issues for more than two decades.

I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a pretty awkward first date to me.
The truth about relationships is that the healthier both individuals are emotionally and spiritually, the healthier the relationship will be.
Though the bible doesn’t talk directly about dating, it does speak volumes about relationships, godly interactions, and principles that can be applied to how you date.
