I am 16 years old. My 7th and 8th grade year I had the biggest crush on this guy, let’s call him Sam. Well I was completely obsessed with Sam, but he never showed much interest in me and that completely crushed me. My new goal was to get this one guy to like me. We never really talked much (he’s very awkward around me, I guess bc he’s nervous). Well in 9th grade it got sexual and we started sexting. I am so ashamed to say that this has been on and off for about 2 years now. I have stopped it multiple times bc of my guilt. I am happy to say I have discovered the grace of God and feel forgiven for what I have done, bc I know it was very wrong. However I am now having a hard time forgetting about this guy and I feel like I might be tempted back into this awful desire. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Sometimes it is hard for all of us to realize that God has a greater plan and purpose for our lives. I just need some advice from my sisters in Christ and could use some encouragement that I will make it.

I know getting over old crushes can be so hard! My best advise from my experience is to surround your self with a couple of christian gal friends. Maybe even one or two would be fine. Make sure they’re the type of girls who don’t always talk about boys and whom likes whom because that will make it harder. Gather a group of your girl friends and go to the mall or go to the movies. Get your mind off of ‘Sam’. I know for me it has helped so much and I hope it will do the same for you!
-Love, Your sister in Christ

Guys suck! They make our lives so much more difficult. I have a really hard time getting over people too.
My biggest piece of advice I think I can give you is to really talk to God about it and ask him to give you strength. If you focus on God, it will be so much easier to forget about this boy and any others who come along. Try to focus on your need and desire for God rather than you desire to feel love and approval from guys who can’t really give it to you. This is hard, I’m sorry you’re in this situation, but I hope you can find hope and peace in God.
