Yorgason's From First Date To Chosen Mate is a great book directed to individuals who are in the beginning stages of dating to those who are contemplating marriage. It contains several examples of what the LDS believe is appropriate in dating and engagement. One of the greatest aspects about this book is the use of stories and illustrations to teach concepts. Yorgason discusses ways to better ourselves, control sexual urges, develop good communication skills, great dating ideas, differences between lust and love, the issue of losing control and how to become clean again, mate selection, engagement, and finally ends with a happy wedding day story.
