I want the whole world to know I love her
Recently, I have been reading your columns and I find them interesting. I am 18 years old and I have been talking to this girl for six months now. I love her and she loves me. She has been such a revelation, a break from my years of pain and hurtful relationships. She is heaven-sent and she has taken my heart. She reads your column, too. She actually introduced me to it.
I know she'll eventually read this, and I want the whole world to know that I love her. We are both still young and are taking our time and watching how things will progress. We have not been intimate. I'm not sure how long that will remain, but we are both Christians and are trying to keep our commitments to God. He brought us together.
Pastor, I would like to hear what you have to say on this matter.
I am glad that you have found a lovely young lady to be your friend. Both of you believe that you love each other and time will indeed tell whether that is so. You have the right attitude about this relationship. You are taking your time and watching how things will progress; however, you have to make a concerted effort to keep the relationship clean. So, always bear in mind that both of you are Christians. I will be praying for you. God bless you.
