When I was a teenager, my friends started reading this new book called I Kissed Dating Goodbye. After reading it myself, I grew into as big an opponent of dating as you could find.
Dating was evil and Courtship, whatever it was, was godly, good and Biblical.
They all have different ideas but I like hearing them. I've read: Christian Courtship in and Oversexed World I Kissed Dating Goodbye ABC's of Finding a Good Husband Three to Get Married by Fulton J Sheen is a very good book to read.
Serious, steady dating and marriage-oriented courtship are expected to be delayed longer, perhaps until after a mission for males and after completing high school for females.
A chaste courtship is expected to lead to a temple marriage, in which a couple make binding commitments to each other for all time and eternity.
Her husband Dietrich von Hildebrand wrote a good book- Marriage: The Mystery of Faithful Love.
These three deal more with marriage than dating however they do paint a good picture of what to strive for when dating.
However, although courtship patterns change and vary across cultures, there is quite a conservative pattern for dating and courtship among Latter-day Saints in Western nations.
