Friends with benefits and dating

God calls us to guard our sexual interactions for a reason—because He knows how powerful those physical interactions can be.
You can make out today, “sext” tomorrow and be out on a date with someone else the next day.
The problem in relationships like this is that they don’t magically turn into healthy relationships along the way.
By our very nature as humans we are wired for the experience of “give-and-take.” Go to any store, purchase any item, or interact with any human being and you’ll notice a pattern: I give something, and I get something else in return.
There’s a healthy balance in that kind of interaction that leaves us feeling satisfied.
