We all need a community around us to speak into our lives with wisdom. Godly friends can raise a red flag when we think things are just fine; they can also let us know when we’re hung up on something that shouldn’t actually matter.
As Matt Chandler put it, “One sure way to walk in foolishness in a romantic relationship is to date someone who troubles the godly counselors in your life.” It may sound trite, but Christians need to simply trust that following God is worth it.

But you're facing the dating scene's old double whammy.
You like him and would like to date him, but you know what God wants you to do. And it doesn't sound like I need to spend much time reminding you what God says about Christians dating non-Christians. Secondly, talk to your youth pastor or some other Christian adult, preferably a male, and ask him to begin witnessing to this guy. God could be saving you from a lot of heartache and pain. And if it's not this guy after he gives his life to Christ, I suspect God has someone even more exciting for you.
God knows it's a risky business, and He tells us not to do it. First, get with one or two of your close Christian friends and begin praying for this guy. Ask him to talk to this guy about his relationship with the Lord. Or someday, this guy may become a Christian and the two of you may begin a wonderful relationship. But remember, too, that God wants to give you the desires of your heart.
