i met this guy at college, thought he was really cute and nice, but I didn’t talk to him much because I figured he was like every other college guy. But then I found out he’s a Christian! But not only that, he’s the strongest Christian I’ve ever known. The way he lives and watching him interact with people and talk about Jesus, you can tell that his relationship with God is very real and the cornerstone of his life. He’s not perfect (obviously) but he’s the most genuine person I have ever met. We can talk so honestly about our struggles. He doesn’t try to hide his sins, he’s so open and honest about them and you can tell he’s truly repentant. He’s one of a few people I’ve met who take their faith as seriously as I do. And I’m not saying I’m perfect, I’m so far from that. But I have a very close relationship with the Lord that grows daily, and I’m continually trying to grow closer to Him. And I just feel like we “get” each other in that sense. I know I don’t know him that well, but we have so much in common. Not like favorite things, but our relationship with God and our backgrounds. I feel like he’s the person I’ve always been looking for, and not even in a future-husband kind of way. Like the best friend I’ve always wanted who completely understands me. But we don’t actually see each other that much. We’re both super busy and he works two jobs along with going to school so he literally has no time. But he’s not a good texted so we hardly ever text either. Like maybe once a month and like 3 texts. I’ve prayed about him and for him so much. And usually something happens like I’ll see him randomly right after I pray (usually only see him like once every couple weeks and only for a few minutes) so I know it’s a god thing! I guess I should also add that I’ve never dated or kissed anyone. So I’m just waiting for the right guy and he seems so perfect. I guess I’m not even sure what my question is other than if there’s any other girl who might like to talk about this with me and give me advice? I don’t have that strong Christian friend that I can talk to and ask for advice on stuff like this.

You need to pray and ask God about it because He knows everything. Secondly you might want to write a list of qualities your looking for in your future spouse.

Well I don’t see any harm in knowing this guy. I think maybe at first you shouldn’t pursue him in a boyfriend way, but reach out to him as a friend. Maybe be honest like “I know you’re really busy, but if you ever have any free time I’d love to hear about your testimony, ideas, etc. because its nice to know another Christian on campus”. And if it goes beyond friendship, then awesome. Either way you could have a really good friend who will encourage you in the Lord.

Girl, I feel like you and I should talk because we are in A LOT of the same situation. I met this guy not at collage, but church actually and I’ve never been able to connect with a guy on a spiritual level like I have with him. His faith is real and genuine and he doesn’t just talk it up, he actually lives it out. Anyway if you need a close gal pal to talk to about this, I’m here!
