This book doesn't require you to be able to make a commitment to someone to start dating. However, I think if the person doesn't start dating early –when he’s not ready for a commitment yet- and focus more on personal and spiritual growth, many character flows can be dealt with and healed before even the dating is started which would reduce a lot the dating/relationship problems and issues.
And when you are ready to make a commitment then consider getting to know someone well, perhaps by starting a friendship with him and then when are you more aware of him and his character, then you can start thinking of dating (courtship) that person.
Dating when you are not ready to make a commitment is useless and there’s no point if it -at the time- and in fact it can prevent you from focusing on building yourself and your future. It is a blessing and you can use it well for personal & spiritual growth.
