So there is a boy that I am attracted to and I know that he is too. The only problem though is that I am a Christian and he is not, he says he is but he is not. I know that my parents and many other people would not approve of the relationship. Many people have even told me that he is a jerk and that if I ever got with him they would kill me. We both have many things alike and we are constantly around each other. Should I let him go, try to make him better, or completely just go for him.

I feel your pain. I've had interest from non Christian girls before but something holds me back even though I so desperately want a relationship. You have to think of the big picture though. Could you both eventually clash because of religious differences? Would he try and pressure you to sleep with him and not understand about waiting? Would he wean you away from God over a period of time? Is he just saying he's a Christian to please you? Is he open to the idea of Christianty? People can change yes but they have to want to. You can't force it upon them. I had a family member who married a non Christian and it ended really quickly. She was convinced she could change him and he even went along with her beliefs at the beginning. But it turned sour after a few months and they divorced. We all knew he wasn't good for her but there was nothing we could do. Her mind was made up. I guess you could give dating a go. But be aware. It could end in heartbreak. I really really understand how you feel and how much you want a boyfriend. But be honest with yourself too. Pray and ask God what to do. He'll show you. Are your parents really strict Christians?0
