I, ____________________, will be a righteous influence on those I date.
“When you begin dating, go with one or more additional couples.” – For the Strength of Youth
I, ____________________, commit to going on group dates when I begin dating.
I, ____________________, commit to teaching my children that they should go on group dates when they begin dating.
“When you are old enough, you ought to start dating. It is good for young men and young women to learn to know and to appreciate one another. It is good for you to go to games and dances and picnics, to do all of the young things. We encourage our young people to date. We encourage you to set high standards of dating.
“When are you old enough? Maturity may vary from individual to individual, but we are convinced that dating should not even begin until you are 16. And then, ideal dating is on a group basis. Stay in group activities; don’t pair off. Avoid steady dating. Steady dating is courtship, and surely the beginning of courtship ought to be delayed until you have emerged from your teens.
“Dating should not be premature or without supervision. You should appreciate your parents if they see to that.” You’re in the Driver’s Seat – by President Spencer W. Kimball
