Whether you like it or not, you get dating advice from everyone. My personal favorite is when a single person gives me advice on finding a wife… I think to myself, “how's that working for you?”
But then there are some people that you respect, and when they give advice, you follow it. I can not think of any group I respect more than the apostles, so I started to search for dating advice from the prophets and apostles. I was shocked with all the advice I found! Here are 14 dating tips from the prophets and apostles.
Have a good time!
“You can have a good time. Of course you can! We want you to have fun. We want you to enjoy life. We do not want you to be prudes. We want you to be robust and cheerful, to sing and dance, to laugh and be happy.”
~President Gordon B. Hinckley
Attributes are polished as Husband and Wife.
“I suggest that you not ignore many possible candidates who are still developing these attributes, seeking the one who is perfected in them. You will likely not find that perfect person, and if you did, there would certainly be no interest in you. These attributes are best polished together as husband and wife.”
~Elder Richard G. Scott
The myth of “soul mates”
“‘Soul mates’ are fiction and an illusion; and while every young man and young woman will seek with all diligence and prayerfulness to find a mate with whom life can be most compatible and beautiful, yet it is certain that almost any good man and any good woman can have happiness and a successful marriage if both are willing to pay the price”
~President Spencer W. Kimball
