Okay, y’all . . . I need help! So, there’s this young man at my church who seems like the perfect guy. He is my age, sings on the worship team, is super passionate for God, kind, outgoing, etc. Even my mom says that she would want me to get to know him eventually! However, I’m only 17, and I personally believe that dating or courtship should be the first step toward marriage. I’m definitely not ready for that! How can I get to know this young man in a wise way? And is there a way I can let him know I like him without flirting? We have only talked to each other a couple of times, basically exchanging pleasantries, nothing else. I feel so stuck! I really, really like him!
If you’re not ready yet, then you don’t have to make a big deal of telling him you like him. Just spend your time getting to know him as a friend. Once you know him better, it will be easier for you to decide if you want to try pursuing a relationship with him or not. Don’t stress about it. If you’ve only talked a few times, talk some more. 🙂
