Bible scripture for dating
Proverbs sets a very high standard for those with whom we should associate as friends, and surely this standard should not be lowered for those whom one would date.
If you were thinking about dating a non-Christian don’t.

The Proverbs speak of those with whom we should associate (i.e., the wise).
They also have much to say about those with whom we should not associate.
Many of the dating and personal relationship safeguards of years gone by seem to have been cast aside.I suspect that this would be an inferential conclusion, and thus would have to be considered a matter of personal conviction, rather than as a clear biblical prohibition.One could certainly ask, “If a Christian cannot marry an unbeliever, why would they ever date one? I think one can have a friendship relationship with an unbeliever of the opposite sex, without entering into a dating relationship.It seems to me that one should not date anyone whom Proverbs tells us not to associate with, and that one should consider dating only those who possess the qualities of a good friend (or of a potential life’s mate).
This would not only exclude unbelievers, but it would also exclude many who profess to be believers as well.As you know, there are some Christians who believe that any dating is inappropriate.
