Discerning priesthood dating

I’m really at odds with both of these questions, and I want to pray and discern in case the guy asks me out. So the bad news is that unless you’re called to marry this specific guy, you probably still won’t know for certain whether you’ll be called to marriage later in life if the two of you do date and end up breaking up.

So one of my very good friends was dating this girl for like 2 years.If both of those requirements are not met it becomes an "unnecessary" occasion of sin.Our catechism teaches to avoid ALL unnecessary occasions of sin. I agree wholeheartedly with WRC that you need to get spiritual direction from a good priest before even considering dating.Go to the seminary first.--- End quote ---What SSPX priest would allow you to get married after only knowing someone for 6 months, especially when you have just gotten out of the seminary?Any priest would know that's a recipe for disaster.--- End quote ---They knew each other their whole lives, their families were very close, and they grew up as very close friends.She moved away for a little while, and happened to come back while he was in the seminary the second time.
