    I wish I had dated in my teen years.

    Because I did not, and because of my own personality deficits, it took me many years to catch up to my peers.

    I did not get married until my 30s once I finally understood enough to get enough dates to find one to marry.

    I wish I had dated earlier and learned those skills when I was young.

    As I was reading this article, I felt that this was familiar information that I already knew and believed, even though I wasn't aware that I knew. I would file this under 'Good Advice' and 'Common Sense.' Then I read 'antoDav2012's comment and I wondered how he came to his conclusion. I think I feel the polar opposite of you, Dav, but then, we each have our own opinions, don't we? Great article, JeaNette. I am going to recommend this book!

    I'm sorry, but your comment makes no sense. In what way is it unrealistic to ask teenagers to not pair off until they are looking for marriage? And how is that advice contrary to church teachings?
