Questions for the Dating Panel
Thanks for your willingness to be on the dating panel. If you have never been through the class or read any of the material, it wouldn’t hurt you to get a really quick overview by viewing the teacher’s manuscripts on-line at the church website (under core seminars).
In regards to questions, I’ve included a few sample questions below. We will not ask all of these questions, but just some of them, and then leave some room for questions at the end.
Give a brief overview of your dating relationship.

MEN: What did it look like when you initiated the relationship, and how well was it received? (WIVES are welcome to comment also about how the husband/fiancée initiated and how it went.)
Generally, what do you think scares men from taking risks both in initiating a relationship?
