Thanks for the link! I actually thought of you while I was reading it, because I thought you would really enjoy the idea of a graph in a book on dating. :). But also, we seem to have similar views on relationships and intimacy. I felt like this was a book our readers would appreciate. I hope you let me know what you think when you read it.

Um, yeah, the idea of the graph in the book on dating sounds... like me.

I'll be interested to see how this compares to "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" which I think does a pretty good job about addressing some of this stuff in a similar way.

Barbara, I read "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" as a teenager, and I recently had cause to flip through it and read portions. I felt when I was younger (but couldn't articulate it then) that it falls very seriously into the fallacy that Salkeld and Perrault describe in their book, and which I quoted in my post, of describing physical interaction like getting closer and closer to a cliff's edge. "You wouldn't take your boyfriend or girlfriend in your arms and take them right to a cliff's edge, would you? Then why would you want to get too physically involved before marriage?" This has the fault of making physical interaction seem like something dangerous, something bad, and it's very consonant with the Protestant literature I've read. I think the Catholic viewpoint in How Far Can We Go? is much richer and much more in sync with human nature and the way that healthy loving relationships are formed and developed.
