I actually kissed dating goodbye after I got married (except the infrequent times my wife and I can leave our kids at home and go out for a quick dinner). However, this book really is a challenge to teens and younger adults (college/young singles) to rethink their mindset of the 'dating' culture. Some will cringe in reading this ideology for the first time, but when contimplating how to protect your own holiness and the purity of others, it makes more sense. Accountability and NOT acting on feelings or immature desires is beneficial in ANY relationship, particularly towards the opposite sex. The Bible does not say, "THOU SHALT NOT DATE" but it does call us to holiness and to protect the purity of others. This is a practical book to present and different approach to developing godly relationships that may lead to marriage based on Scriptural truths.

BTW - I've noticed that SOMETIMES the people who hate this book are also people who are a bit boy or girl "crazy" and will attack it as "stupid" or "unbiblical". It is like the alcoholic stating that Jesus drank wine, Paul told Timothy to take a little wine for his ailments, and the Passover is warrant to drink alcohol even though it will hurt them (as an alcholic).
