Dating to the Glory of God?

Alternatively titled "Courting/ Dating/ Seeing someone to the Glory of God?"

So, here's something that's been on my mind a lot recently.

Say there is a young man and a young woman, both of whom have been attending the same church for some time and have been serving along side of each other for a few months. They've decided, after much thought, to begin dating/ courting/ whatever you want to call it - but they want to do so in a way that brings honor to God.

My question to you is, what exactly does that look like? Do you have any advice? Things you learned as you were seeing your spouse? Things you wish someone would have discussed with you? The worst advice someone may have given you? What would you tell your daughter if she were beginning to broach the subject?
