Real Question: Should I date a boy who is not a Christian?

Real Question:  Should I date a boy who is not a Christian?

A Question from a Real Teen: Should I date a boy who is not a Christian, even though he is really nice to me?  I’m unstable in my faith. Should I stay with him? Can I make him change?

Maybe he believes in God but doesn’t know him or never thought about it. Obviously, if he was some one who completely denounces God that […]

When I was in eighth grade, I made a commitment: I would be stay single and not participate in the “high school dating game.” I had just broken up with my first real boyfriend and decided that I wanted my next boyfriend to be my future husband.

Does a high school romance have any hope for the future?

It’s the month of love and so we’re taking extra time to answer the dating and relationship questions we often get from teen girls. Below is a second perspective on the topic of planning your future. If you missed the previous answer to this question, you can find it here. I met my first boyfriend at one of my brother’s soccer games. He was a soccer player, too, and I thought he was so cute.

It’s the month of love and so we’re taking extra time to answer the dating and relationship questions we often get from teen girls. Today, we have the first of two perspectives on the topic of planning your future. Join us later this week for another perspective. When I was 15 I fell in love.
