But am trying to share my CHRISTIAN faith, but they have a lot of “justifications” and i do not have all the answers and want to represent God well. Yes, I have studied Mormonism since the early 1980s, much longer than you have been alive!!! First of all, I’m going to lay it all out on the line. ) I’ll just come out and say in the very beginning that I think it is not very wise for you to be dating a Mormon, or anyone outside your faith, for that matter.I don’t want you to take anything I say personal or as an attack, but if I were your father, this is what I would say. In our book we have a chapter titled “Why Won’t You Allow Your Daughter to Date a Mormon?As Sister Nelson, wife of a latter-day Apostle, once said, “the Holy Ghost tailor fits to us what we need to know.” So, if you are still feeling confused or baffled about how to develop a long-lasting relationship with someone you like, get a copy of the Book of Mormon and start studying.

There are hidden nuggets on dating, with tips treasured by many couples both dating and married.

Nonmembers often end up becoming attracted to the wholesome Latter-day Saints.
Actually, I put some thought into this, and I believe President Kimball’s point was that pretzels are a trifling snack attributing no emotional significance.
For example, suppose I had this bag of pretzels, which is nearly as endless as my capacity to kiss.
Unscrupulously, I would gladly share this bag with anyone.
Shucks, I’d share this bag of pretzels all evening with a stranger I fully intended to never see again.
Kimball said: “Kissing has been prostituted and has degenerated to develop and express lust instead of affection, honor and admiration. What do kisses mean when handed out like pretzels and robbed of sacredness?
” If you're like me, your first response was probably, "Who goes around handing out pretzels? Which means that President Kimball was simply giving a much-needed reiteration of the Biblical ban on prostitution.
uses the term “passionate kissing” to describe kissing that crosses the line.
