Over forty christian dating advice
I did plan to talk to them about rules and boundaries if she said yes.I wrote her a letter telling her how I felt about her and asking her to be my girlfriend.I determined that I really liked this girl and I didn’t know any better so I told her exactly that. I was depressed for a long time, because I knew that I ruined what could have been a great friendship by jumping the gun. So after realizing that I really liked spending time with the girl at camp I was very careful to make sure I kept my feelings in check. I also explained how I didn’t want to get in the way of a relationship I thought she might have had with a guy in our group that I knew had feelings for her.I wasn’t going to jump the gun this time, but she was obviously being more than friendly toward me and people in my group were spreading rumors about us being together. I said I was perfectly content with us being friends, but if she felt differently I told her she should say so. I joined the worship team at my church and got baptized.Eventually I realized that I still liked her as more than a friend, and I felt like I was ready to put myself out there again, and I felt much more comfortable doing that because we were already such good friends.
I held onto it for like two weeks and finally gave it to her while we were hiking, something that we both enjoyed doing and would do as a group with my other friend and my mom.I talked to everyone around me about it, my pastor, our friends, her old teacher who is now our Sunday school teacher.Everyone except her parents because I thought it would be really awkward and if they said I couldn’t ask her I still would’ve done it anyway because I don’t believe it’s their choice.Even by consciously knowing what the Bible teaches us? We didn’t really talk much at first, we were just friends, and we barely knew each other.The big spark came when our youth went to winter camp. We actually had some awesome conversations and we did a bunch of stuff together and just had fun as friends.
Recently I asked if he’d like to become prayer partners and accepted.
