The longer the relationship goes on with no immediate prospect of marriage, the more likely a couple is to get into trouble. You have a conscience within you. This is a very delicate territory, so tread carefully! Most guys recognize that what we are looking for is potential and progression, not perfection. They even refrain from tea and coffee. Gather your courage and look for someone to pair off with. We encourage our young people to date.
Character is more important than the physical.
And their answers surprised me. If love is built on only physical attraction, it will fail as our bodies are guaranteed to decay. For decades, prophets have preached that youth who are in no position to marry should not pair off exclusively. For instance, I know that while girls appreciate the occasional fancy date, an ice cream cone and a walk in the park can mean just as much if accompanied by the respect a girl deserves. Marriage is where these two components come together in more perfect harmony.
