    1. I feel sooo blessed. I answered yes to all of these things. I truly have a great boyfriend who always listens, always tells me I’m beautiful, and always sticks to his morals. I’m glad God blessed me so much 🙂

    2. i have never had a bf before, but i do have a great guy friend that seems like he wants to be more. My problem is that i dont think he is a christian, although he does call himself catholic. Ive had a few conversations with him about my faith and he seems very interested but not in a sense that he actually understands as if he too was a believer. I would really like to go out with him because he is the kindest & most genuine guy i know, even among my christian friends. He also has told me that i am the kind of girl he would hope to marry someday. how can I say no when he seems so sincere??? any advice would be very much appreciated. Also, i am entering my last year of high school so i feel like it wouldnt last anyway. i keep going back and forth with myself…

      • Hey Juliana- in my opinion, I wouldn’t go out with him but stay friends with him. You’re leaving high school right now, and what would happen is you both like each other, get in a rushed- relationship probably involving sex, and then the relationship is over because you both go off to different colleges and you will regret sleeping with him. I know you might not have that in mind, but even if you don’t sleep with him, if you get too emotionally involved with him you’ll be sad when it’s over and it’s not worth it. I hope this helps!

      • The right guy will be! If he isn’t, he probably isn’t the one God has picked out for you. Just wait for God’s timing. I know it gets tedious sometimes, but just keep focusing on your love for Him and He’ll send you a man when it’s right =]

    3. I’m so glad I found this site. It’s made me think harder about my decisions and given great advice.

      I know I’m with a great Christian guy…but seeing he’s 100% just made it even more certain. I thank God for him every day…I’m so lucky to have found him early.

      Girls: If you haven’t found a guy like this, don’t give up… don’t settle. God wants you to be completely happy with a guy that loves and respects you for you! I’m happy I found someone who loves Jesus as much as I do. 🙂

      • If you’re just starting 7th grade, you’re waaay to young to be that serious about a boy. Please don’t get too involved with boys so soon. It makes your girlhood really rough to be so serious about guys.

        • Middle school dating: don’t do it. It is seriously a waste of time. Honestly, if you really like this guy, get to know him better and wait on it for a while. I dated this amazing guy in middle school but we were both so immature that things got complicated and now we rarely talk. We might have been together for a lot longer if we had waited.

        • well, honestly, i started datin my Wonderful bf at the end of 7th grade (9 out of 10 on this thing, just the calling one b because we dont usually ahve time to call eachother, were either texting or talking face to face) and here we are, 1 year and a half (today actually! Its our 18 month anniversary! eep!) and were still going strong. If its meant to be, you can find mr right in middle school, but make sure you know that he is right for you, or else, like maggielouh said (my name’s maggie toooo! high five) its completely pointless. God has told me that He gave me patrick for a reason 🙂

    4. I thank God for sending me a guy who, in the above quiz, got a huge A for every question! 🙂 We’re both strong Christians and are definitely waiting until we get married to have sex. He gets made fun of (a LOT) for not sleeping with me, but he has said so many times that he knows, no matter what anyone says, that it’s better to wait. Your virginity is a gift; a gift only for your future husband! And if you give it to someone else before marriage, you can’t get it back.

      • That’s great, Leah! Sometimes I feel like I’m not going to meet any nice guys and Ill be single all my life (which isn’t a bad thing but I sooo want to be a wife and mother) and just hearing about men like that makes me more hopeful!

    5. I have a question for anyone who wants to answer-
      I have this really close guy friend that I like actually. I’m not dating him though. How do I tell if he likes me back? He already does most of the things above.

    6. Well, I just met my guy about two months ago, but I think he gets all A’s. I knew he was great! I hope it lasts, and I hope he’s the right one! He really seems like it! But I don’t want to rush things, or count my chickens before they hatch, so to speak. (I’m 18 and he’s 27 — I don’t think age matters that much, but more important things like maturity and compatibility, etc.) Believe me, I had my doubts about him, I even confronted him about them, but I learned and know for sure now that he’s a very nice, sweet guy.

      • I saw that too. If you see one of my comments I asked about that.
        I have my own list that I put the guys I like up against, and the top thingy is: Must be a Christian growing in his walk with the Lord.

    7. I am so blessed and i dont even deserve the guy God has blessed me with.Were both strong christians and Christ is truly the center of our relationship. Most people tell us its foolish to tell each other that “i love you” since so many people end up taking it back and regretting it, especially since were son young ( im 14 and hes 13) but our 1 year anniversy is coming up and we’ve already talked about how one day we will hopefully get married and we pray for each other each and every day and he even told me that God gave him a sighn that i was the one for him and to be honest..Gods given me a couple sighns lol

    8. I have a great guy friend…and I’m glad we’re just really close friends. I can say “yes” to most of those questions–we both enjoy doing the same things. I value our friendship together and cannot wait for summer so we can hang out more. :3

    9. Just recently I was with a guy who I thought was good. Then about four months into dating him I completly renewed my relationship with Jesus Christ. He seemed cool with it and even said it inspired him. As I kept reading my bible I realized more and more the mistakes I was making in my life, namely one being sexual relations outside of marriage. After thinking about it and even talking to my mom about it I decided to make a commitment to God that I would no longer have sex until I was married. I expressed this decision to my boyfriend and two hours later I was single. He still has not removed me from his facebook page so when I returned to facebook after being absent for lent, I saw his page was filled with quite a few posts mocking Jesus. I knew right then and there that I was right to let him leave. I decided then that any man I dated in the future would have to truly be a man for God or he would not be worthy of dating me. And any guy who is willing to wait till marriage I know will truly care for me and not just my body. P.S. it was actually my commitment to abstinence that brought me to this website, which I am so grateful it did 🙂

    10. I got mostly A’s, but I’m still worried about the relationship. We have been together almost six months, and we have had sex before, and sometimes I feel like that’s the only reason we are together. We talk about stuff together, and talk about the future, but never talk about being in each other’s lives in the future. I’m confused as what to do, as well as the fact that I haven’t asked him to be my bf, and he hasn’t asked me to be his gf, but whenever someone says ya’ll make a great couple, or refer to one of us as the others gf or bf, neither one of us deny it. I don’t know what to make of our relationship, but I feel like I’m falling for him, and that’s scary to me, I’m not used to the feeling.

    11. I had been praying for years for a great guy and i moved to my current town. I met a guy and he is a strong Christian. He introduced my family to the church we are attending now. He doesn’t even know anything about sex. I was talking to him about anti-Cosmo and he didn’t even know what Cosmo was. When I showed him at the store he was in utter shock. He says he honestly doesn’t think about things like that. His mom is amazing and is like a second mother to me. I thank God for him every day… And… I answered all A’s 🙂

    12. My guy is A for all of these. We aren’t actually dating (we’re in middle school, if we really like each other, we can wait), but he has told me he likes me in person and I like him back. He’s the godliest, kindest guy I know (after my dad). So I’m happy 🙂

    13. I broke up with my boyfriend about a month ago (or maybe he broke up with me, im not really sure what happened there..) and this quiz really helped me realize that I’m probably better off without him because he got a lot of no’s. Thank you for making this! 🙂

    14. I’m 17 and have never dated anyone. A guy told me he liked me once…in 5th grade. I guess I just want to know what it feels like for a guy to love everything about me no matter what. I have my insecurities (don’t we all?) but I know I can be a whole and happy single girl. I just hope the stars align someday and I find the exact right person!!!

    15. I know a guy who is romantically interested in me, and he is all of these things. He is really nice and I like him. He wants to date me, but I don’t know what to do. I am only 14 and I don’t want to do anything I’ll regret.
