I have a girlfriend that I have been with for over two years. So before I answer your question I just want to ask if you are this confident in your own salvation? This confidence does not come from our effort (“If I am good enough then I’ll be saved! If Jesus came back right now before we got married or even after would I still be saved?

I am very excited to be able to share my thoughts since they will be coming from a young Christian man’s perspective to a female audience. To start off with, I will tell you about a few of my own personal dating experiences.
