I'm on the conservative side when it comes to relationships. I set pretty strict boundaries for myself, but I'm aware that most people aren't as conservative as me. Recently, I learned that someone I knew went on an overnight trip with their significant other. When I heard that I was a bit shocked. As Christians, I think we should be more careful than others when it comes to sexual temptations. Sure, it's nice to go on a vacation, but why alone where your guard is down and anything can happen?
I know I shouldn't assume the worst and I want to give the benefit of the doubt, but I've seen way too many quickie marriages and oopsies to be so naive. God tells us not to judge, so this question isn't about judgment. I'm just concerned for dating couples who put themselves in tempting situations.
So, what do you think about going on overnight trips with your bf/gf alone?
