Dating another Christian is paramount if you're devout. But getting close without getting too physical can be a hard temptation to resist. But there are plenty of ways to bond with your partner that will not lead you between the sheets.
Chances are you haven't thought of this one. Getting lost in a cornfield maze can bring some good old fashioned youthful fun to your date. It might take forever to get out, but there's always hot apple cider or hot chocolate to look forward to afterward.
You and your paramour could also visit the state fair. Munching on caramel corn while waiting in line will no doubt enhance your sweet tooth for each other. Hold onto each other tight when you're stuck at the top of the ferris wheel or racing down a roller coaster.
Racing go karts is another fun option. Have fun racing each other and indulging your competitve streak. Try outracing the teens and kids on the course too and you guys will feel like kids again.
You could learn to dance. The options are endless from swing to square dancing. Even if you guys aren't good at it, you'll have fun holding on to each other and moving to the music.
Horseback riding is another way for couples to bond. The wind in your hair and the freedom of galloping through the wilds can set the scene for a romantic rendez-vous.
Last but not least, the two of you could try just hanging out at the park. Feed the ducks, go for a stroll, or just sit on a bench and enjoy each other's company. Plan a picnic and watch the day go by. You'll discover that there are plenty of ways for Christian couples to enjoy each other's company without getting too frisky.
