You can visit different churches but this is a very inefficient way to meet someone.
With an issue like no physical intimacy before marriage it'll take two to say 'no' for absolute certain.
But there are many more stories to the contrary of great heartache and eventual splitting of partners either before or after marriage - sometimes much later in life.
With the added pressure of other people drifting in and out of casual relationships, everyone else is having all the fun and you end up wondering why you don't try it yourself!
But when we announced our engagement I received a few emails from the pastor saying the Bible is clear that the relationship is wrong and that I need to end it. I knew that, out of love, I would receive some hostility from Christian friends, but it is getting to the point where I do not want to go back to church, because of the volume of people telling me to end the relationship—when they cannot give me a reason for doing so, other than him being a non-Christian. I was overwhelmed with joy, laughter, and excitement.
A few days have gone by since the excitement and my heart is torn, I feel guilty for even dating a man who doesn’t follow Jesus.
