Jackie has some straightforward advice about how Catholics (should) date in a way that will eliminate the ambiguity often involved, while hopefully leading to more vocations and a healthier dating culture:
- If you’re not ready to get married, there’s no point in dating
- Guys, ask the girl, “Can I take you out on a date?” Girls, if he doesn’t ask, you ask. Whoever asks should pay.
- A first date shouldn’t be longer than ninety minutes, and shouldn’t cost more than ten dollars. You’re just getting to know each other.
- After three dates, you should know if the relationship is going anywhere. Either end it or extend it. Don’t be shy. Life is short.
