So there’s this guy I’ve known since elementary school and we’ve been talking recently (we’re both going to be seniors in high school). We actually have been on two dates already, and although fast, it’s obvious we really like each other and he wants to make us official (my first ever boyfriend! Ah!). I told him that he needs to make it official in person, and we haven’t been able to see each other since school’s been out, so we’re technically… not official yet. But we will be soon 🙂 He’s a really great guy: gentleman, opens doors for me, is super sweet and funny and has his morals all in line. He’s the definition of the “nice guy.”

I’ve been in this situation before, not exactly but i know where youre coming from. You dont want to seem pushy, but at the same time you really like him and you want to date him and you want him to be on good terms with God. The question is, is if he is still open to the idea of letting God back into his life. If he is, then thats great and you can take him to church and bible studies or youth group. But, if not then you might have a little more work to do. Either way you dont want to sound pushy.
BUT, if hes just gotten lazy and he still wants a relationship with God, then heres how to slowly get him involved back into church. Theres going to be a few awkward days starting out, but thats just normal. Maybe make the suggestion that your church is having an event coming up soon and see how he reacts. If he seems interested then you can casually suggest going together. Just do simple things and events like that to get him more comfortable around your church family. I think over time he will get more used to the idea and church will become a regular thing for yall. 🙂
Hope this helped!

Yeah, he says he doesn’t know exactly where he stands or “what [he] believe[s] in” at this moment, which is pretty common at our age, I think– like a phase. I haven’t asked why his family stopped going to church, but I assume (and yes, this is a total assumption) that his family just got out of the habit.
The thing is, I never seem to attract straight-up Christians. And I’m starting to wonder if it’s me.
