Many people are of the opinion that if you are not currently dating, you must be a "loser." Somewhere along the way, we forgot that the ultimate purpose of a relationship isn't to gain popularity points, but is to get to know someone better and ultimately to discern marriage. I heard this adage last year: It's better to not be in a relationship and wish you were, than to be in a relationship and wish you weren't.
Choosing relationships wisely is so important, not only in someone's journey with chastity, but also to your happiness. Although it's rather cliche, in the case of dating, quality is much more important than quantity.
