Difference between dating and friendship
a seller is only interested in converting product into cash, he is interested in a long lasting relationship.
but a marketer believes that business begins with friendship and after sale relationship.
Of course, the courtship style presents its own set of difficulties.
Many Christians see dating as little more than friendship and maintain the friendship aspect of their dating until both people are ready to commit to each other as potential marriage partners.
Sometimes people can get confused and be friends who have the benefits of being in a relationship... if you want to have the benefits, they should just make it official and become boyfriend and girlfriend.
