I told my youth pastor about her because she wasn’t in the youth group.
I tried to convince him (and myself) that it would be good for me to date her so that she might come to youth group and become a Christian. A few years before this, my youth minister gave our youth group a lesson we called “the triangle talk.” This talk consisted of a triangle drawn out, and the guy on the left base of the triangle and the girl on the right base.
Looking back, I thank the Lord for protecting my purity and the purity of the girls in those relationships. My senior year of high school, a junior girl caught my eye.
We started talking on the band trip that year on New Year’s Eve.
Our relationship ended after she wrote me a letter telling me she thought I was the one for her, and I told her I wasn’t. Our focus even as good Christian kids was on each other and not on God and how we were to be obedient to Him in His service. The girl I dated for 15 months was a great girl and a strong Christian, but we were not equally yoked.
