Publisher's Description

Purpose Driven Romance

The last thing singles want is more rules. But if you’re looking for an intentional, God-pleasing game plan for finding a future spouse, Joshua Harris delivers an appealing one. A compelling new foreword, an all-new "8 Great Courtship Conversations" section, and updated material throughout makes this five-year revision of the original Boy Meets Girl a must-have! Harris illustrates how biblical courtship—a healthy, joyous alternative to recreational dating—worked for him and his wife. Boy Meets Girl presents an inspiring, practical example for readers wanting to pursue the possibility of marriage with someone they may be serious about.

Are you ready for "romance with purpose"?

If you’re fed up with self-centered relationships that end in disillusionment, it’s time to rethink romance. Finding the loving, committed relationship you want shouldn’t mean throwing away your hopes, your integrity, or your heart.

In Boy Meets Girl, Joshua Harris —the guy who kissed dating goodbye—makes the case for courtship. As old-fashioned as it might sound, courtship is what modern day relationships desperately need. Think of it as romance chaperoned by wisdom, cared for by community, and directed by God’s Word.

Filled with inspiring stories from men and women who have rediscovered courtship, Boy Meets Girl is honest, romantic, and refreshingly biblical. Keep God at the center of your relationship as you discover how to:

   • Set a clear course for your romance
   • Get closer without compromise
   • Find support in a caring community
   • Deal with past sexual sin
   • Make the right decisions about your future

New! Courtship Conversations

Eight ideas for great dates that will help grow and guide your relationship.

Story Behind the Book

"I wrote I Kissed Dating Goodbye to challenge singles to drop the worldly approach to serial dating and reconsider the way they pursued romance in light of God’s Word. Since then, I’ve received letters asking questions like, So, what comes between friendship and marriage? and, How can you know when you are ready for marriage? Boy Meets Girl answers those questions. Now as a happily married man I can look back on my courtship with Shannon and see from personal experience that God is faithful. If you trust Him enough to wait on romance in dating, He will lovingly guide you as you pursue it in courtship…right to that wonderful moment when you kneel together at the altar." — Joshua Harris

    This book was awesome! As an older couple dating we were looking for something to help us learn to date correctly in order to glorify God and not fall into the same fragmented relationships that end in hurt and disappointment. This book was so helpful in keeping the main thing the main thing. Learning how to have friendship, fellowship and romance equally balanced is the key. Very challenging and inspiring!

    A long story follows these books between me and a friend. I recommended "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" to him and he recommended "Boy Meets Girl" to me. When I read it, I was amazed. It was the best book about relationships that I've ever read, aside from "I Kissed Dating Goodbye." For my birthday, my friend got me this book so now I have it for my own. I think that every young person should read it, it really shows you how to protect and sincerly and purly love your brothers and sisters in Christ, while waiting for that special person. And then to know what to do when that special someone walks into your life, when you least expect it. I would recommend this book to anyone!!

    I bought "I kissed dating goodbye" for my teenage daughters then a few years later I found a copy of "Boy meets girl" at the Goodwill store. I never look at the used books but somehow zero'd in on the little paperback copy.

    I read this book through in one night...crying throughout most of it. I kept saying to myself and God, "I want to be loved (& sought after) like that". Joshua does an excellent job portraying the reality of relationships and the various consequences which come from decisions we make.

    Give this to your kids, youth pastors, use these 2 books to approach dating and relationships with your kids, and adult singles of all ages read this book! It will make you visualize a love & relationship as God intended.

    I read this book after going through an interesting process with the Lord, and I became so convicted and repented of so many seemingly innocent ways i treated women. This is definitely a must read for all guys and girls pursuing marriage (in a God honoring way). If you care about honoring Jesus in all you do-get this puppy. It is well worth the effort to get yourself and your friends some copies. Lord bless u all.

    I can't say enough about this book or the one that follows it. If it were up to me, the concepts that he teaches would be taught in every church to every teenager. I believe it is defintely time to teach that we have some very erroneous ideas about dating and marraige, and the material he presents is just what is needed.
