In time, you'll probably find yourself liking one person a lot. If you find yourself moving in this direction, or if you are already in a serious relationship, here are other questions to think through and to talk about together: 1. A relationship can't survive without honesty and openness. If you have to be somebody you're not, or if either of you feels you must put up a front, then you're in the wrong relationship. If one of you can't move without the other one knowing it, then possessiveness is a big problem. If you break up tomorrow, would you end the relationship with no regrets about your physical involvement? On the other hand, no one should say "forgive me" when they really mean "accept my faults and don't expect me to change." If you want to regain trust, if you want to keep the relationship healthy, then changes must be made.
If lies creep into the relationship, it's time to get truthful, or call it quits. If this happens, both of you need some space, and maybe you even need to back away from the relationship. If you can't answer yes to these questions, please talk with your youth pastor or someone else who can give you guidance in this critical area. The Bible calls these changes "repentance" (Acts , NIV), and it means that you will, with God's help, stop doing the behavior that got you into trouble in the first place.
He said it’s his choice and told me not to bring it up again. But all that’s going to do is make you want to chase him and in response, will cause him to run faster and further away. Any man, whether it’s your ex or a new guy, wants to be with a woman who is confident, happy and fulfilled in her own life as it is.
But now and then you need to have a conversation that goes a bit deeper—that lets you know each other's likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, hopes and dreams. To avoid pushing the limits beyond the point of no control, you need to set agreed-upon limits early on. More questions worth asking: Do both of you understand why God wants people to save sex for marriage? With "nothing to do," it's easy to fill up your time by becoming more physically involved than you should. That's why it's important to forgive each other.
