A girl and I have been talking for a while now, and we recently started going a few dates here and there. we've spent significant time together, but she wants to be a missionary to Africa, and I really struggle with the concept. We are crazy about each other, but should we keep it going?

Normally, I would say "no", don't continue w/the relationships if you have different goals. BUT...you are both so young still. She may change her mind...esp if she falls in love. I guess you just need to make sure she knows that is NOT in your plans. She will have to decide whether being a missionary is her calling or not and whether she can give that up for someone. The only issue would be that you wouldn't want her to regret it if she doesn't become one (later on in life). I think open communication about it is key. Good Luck!1
