Two weeks ago, I met this guy at school and we have been texting for at least an hour a day. It is very obvious that he likes me, but I don’t think he is a Christian and that is a very important thing to me when it comes to relationships. I’m just waiting for the day when he ask me on a date. I don’t believe in casualy dating. I believe that the purpose for dating is to find a future spouse. I have never dated before so I’m not sure how to let him know that I won’t date him because he’s not a Christian. Any advice on how to let him down gently would be greatly appreciated!

First, I would be careful not to lead him on in any way. If you know he likes you, try not to say or do things that would lead him to believe that you like him. I’m not saying don’t be friends with him, but I know how easy it is when you like someone to interpret everything they say or do in your favor. As far as what to say, I would suggest something along the lines of: “I take dating very seriously, and it’s very important to me that whoever I date has the same core beliefs and values about the world. Right now, our beliefs just don’t line up…” etc.

Sorry i’m kind of late on this, but it’s EXACTLY my situation right now. There’s a boy who really likes me, but he’s an atheist. I unfortunately find myself falling for him! Recently though I’ve come to understand that my validation comes from God not boys, and I’ve realized I would be settling for less than the best with this guy. I really need to stop leading him on and explain everything, but he’s really sensitive and I’m afraid he’ll take it badly. Please help!
