No, You DON’T Have to Prove Your Love! By PI Girl, Kimberly

What is love really about? Love is a very powerful feeling given by God to all humanity. There are many people out there who misinterpret what love really means or what it really is. Love is a very beautiful feeling towards anyone you want.
I am 16 years old and I may not be your best option for advice because I’ve never had a boyfriend before, which believe me is not “lame” in my point of view.
Let me tell you a little about myself and why I have chosen these paths. I’m a Christian teenage girl, 16 to be exact. I’m in 11th grade and trust me, high school has not been easy for me. I’ve been bullied so much that I don’t think anything hurts me anymore.
You are probably thinking, “This has nothing to do with relationships,” but here’s how it does: As a human being, we develop feeling towards others and as time goes by, it grows bigger. Well, last year I met a guy in school who made me believe he was my Prince Charming and we continued to be friends. Of course, I developed deep feelings for him.
As time went by, he started to behave weirdly. His text messages began to worry me a little, but I never paid attention. That’s when I began to hear rumors about him around school.
I began to lose friends because I would try to defend him. One day I went to talk to him in front of his friends and he completely ignored me, which made me feel bad, but I just ignored it. Days later he texted me saying, “You think you can come over my house?” and I said “Why?” and he said, “Because if you want to be my girlfriend you have to prove your love to me.”
That’s when I realized that was it. I said “NO.” He began to swear at me. I just ignored him and until today I didn’t talk to him. I’m nice to him because I have God in my heart. I’m a very positive person and God tells me to forgive 70 times 7.
Well, I have been single all my life for the reason that guys my age are very immature and I believe God is saving the one special someone who I will share the rest of my life with.
Any girl out there who thinks they will stop being bullied if they do wrong things, or that they will be more loved by their boyfriends if they “prove their love,” and especially all those girls who think they are going to be “forever alone” — let me tell you: I know how you feel and trust me, it’s not worth it. God does special jobs for each one of his children. If you don’t believe in Him, trust me, when you come to Him and hold His hand and let Him lead your way, you will live a wonderful and happy life because a father wants the best for his children and you are not the exception.
Girls, you’re beautiful the way you are and don’t let anyone tell you you’re not. But do remember that you’re created by God’s hands and He makes pure perfection.
God is LOVE. First John 4:8
