Before you start dating you should consider 3 things:
Make sure you're ready for a relationship. It's important to be emotionally ready to start dating and not to jump into something because you're lonely or feeling pressured.
Consider the other person's feelings. Before making a commitment to someone, make sure they feel the same way and think through how your relationship may affect them.
Set boundaries. Let your partner know what your expectations are and what you're comfortable with in a relationship. This will help you both have a more positive and healthy experience.
Understanding 3 Stages To Romantic Relationships:
Courting- When two people have discussions and complete its activities in the hopes of trying to figure out if they want to date each.
Dating- When two people have decided to focus on activities that will help them build a long-term relationship. In this stage the couple is trying to figure out if they’re compatible for marriage.
Marriage- When two people create a covenant and start to hopefully build a fulfilling life together.
Setting Boundaries for each stage of dating:
Setting boundaries while dating is very important in order to maintain healthy relationships. It is important to establish boundaries that are comfortable for both parties and make sure that you discuss them openly with your partner. It could be anything from how often you communicate, physical boundaries, when you spend time together, or what topics are off limits to discuss. It is important to remember that boundaries should be respected and honored by both parties, and if one person feels that their boundaries are not being respected, it is important to bring it up in a respectful and constructive way.
Examples of boundaries during courtship......
Opening meet in public places. Go to dinner or the zoo. Meetup where you can talk and decide if you like each other. Build a friendship, before clouding you judgement with sex.
Ask but limit your conversation to things you would ask a potential friend. Here are some great questions to ask when getting to know someone better:
