Publisher's Summary

Everyone wants to be loved - to find someone who will stick with them through all of life's ups and downs, someone who is in it for the long haul. But in a world where dating is increasingly based on split-second decisions and geared toward casual relationships rather than marriage, it's easy for single people to feel discouraged, used, or unworthy of true love and lasting affection. Reality just never seems to match up with our (often wildly unrealistic) expectations.

Jonathan "JP" Pokluda has counseled thousands of young singles through the pain and heartbreak of dating the world's way. Now he wants to dispel the myths, misconceptions, and fairy tales you've believed about dating and replace them with the truth from the One who invented marriage, created you to crave relationship, and is the very embodiment of true love. With plenty of true stories about relationships healed and love found, this practical book explains God's purposes for singleness, dating, and marriage and covers why you should date, who you should date, and how you should date. 

If you're ready to trade the world's way of dating for the way that actually works, it's time to begin dating well.

Want to know how to really date this is the book

I love he can make things simple, step by step backing up with scripture and explaining why it is best to things that way instead of what the major of dating is out there. This book was so great I brought a hard copy and will do the beak downs of the each character and study with my church group

Well good info but man ear fatigue is real.

Listened to this book over a few days. Performance wasn’t that great. Stressed me out. I wanted to tell him take a breath, change your pitch. Content is good information though. Performance is lacking quite a bit.

After 33 years married, here I am.

I said "I do" 11/26/1988. Now I'm here. Let's go! Thank you for practical Kingdom instruction on this new season of my life. I rejoice Jesus is walking beside me.

Helpful and still relevant

As someone who has been married almost 15 years, in their 30s and has middle school children plus people I love who are still dating I was curious what JP would have to say on dating.

I grew up in the church but was not a born again Christian until after marriage and after my 3 children. I have seen first hand how the boundaries and safe parameters JP outlays are God’s design.

I would recommend this book to anyone! If you love people who are still dating and even if you are committed to your own marriage. Better yet, if you’re single and seeking the Lord!

Amazing listen!

This book was incredible! I listened to it all in one day. So many good takeaways. As a divorced Christian woman coming out of an abusive 10-year marriage, this was such an incredible blessing for me! I feel so much more prepared for once I start to navigate the dating world. Thanks, JP!

A Good Start

This is a good basic overview of a godly way to handle singleness & romance, including its pursuit, living in, and sometimes, breaking off. However, if you’re a seasoned Christian, many of these concepts are elementary and don’t offer any new insight, nor practical applications beyond the bare-bones basics. Definitely a good start if you don’t have the slightest idea on what to do, or if you’ve come from a radically unhealthy romantic past, but not if you’re looking for something more nuanced.

Additionally, the narration is oddly slow, but when you speed it up, it sounds just natural enough to sound like he’s forcibly speed-reading with the occasional pauses in in unnatural places. Not terrible narration, and easy to follow, but I’ve heard much better in the few other audiobooks I’ve listened to.

Overall, it’s a good start to exploring the world of romance in God’s eyes.

Amazing book

I’m 22, and I have struggled with dating off and on. I related to many things said in this book and am a better man after reading this. Thank you JP and team. Glory to God!

Impactful

As a prospective pastor, 31, this is a very good book for anyone who is new to the faith or even just getting started with their relationship with God/Jesus/Holy Spirit and the Bible’s teachings in general. The book is balanced with practical wisdom and most importantly backed with the more popular Biblical passages that help with relationship advice.
