Why Fall In Love When You Can Fly? That’s what Caleb Breakey asks in his book Dating like Airplanes. I wish I had had something like this when I was a teen and young adult. I could have spared myself a ton of heart-grief. Dating like Airplanes talks about how we typically fall in love and suggests a much better way of doing it. Instead of jumping out of an airplane without a working parachute, you can fly in love safely, like you do when in an airplane safely belted into your seat. You’ve got an engine and propellers and all kinds of instruments that will direct you along your path. You’re able to think with your head and not so much with your heart. This book goes way deeper than that, though. He talks about the real purpose of dating, and about setting boundaries (physical and emotional) and how they don’t really work. In the last half of the book, Breakey digs deep into what makes a relationship work, what makes it marriage-worthy. He points out the things you should look for in a mate if you want the marriage to last a lifetime. There’s so much meat in this book that I have found myself sharing about it with my own children and with the singles (dating or not) in my circle of influence. This book would make a great gift for anyone single, regardless of age, and especially if he’s not already entangled in a relationship. “You can’t be a good candidate for marriage without first having your relationship with Christ where it should be.” Breakey puts the focus on the relationship with Christ first and I like that!
