ANSWER: Is there a correct way to go about dating according to the Bible? The nearest we have to courtship begins in Genesis 28 where Isaac told Jacob to go to Padan Aram and marry one of his uncle Laban's daughters.1.
And take a wife from there of the daughters of Laban your mother's brother" (Genesis 28:1 - 2, HBFV)The narrative jumps to Genesis 29 where Jacob fell head over heels in love with his cousin Rachel.
But for most, the issue of dating involves "romantic attraction and desire." Therefore "dating" must be approached by what the Scripture says regarding romantic desire and marriage, the only relationship in which romantic desire is to be fully expressed.
If "dating" is defined as two single friends of the opposite sex doing things together for fun without any attraction or romantic desire or intimacy involved at all, there is no issue to discuss regarding dating. The Bible describes and gives directions concerning friendship.
What devotion and love he had (see 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.
