I counsel you to take a stand to say “no” to boyfriend/girlfriend relationship so you might lead a successful life. This counsel is in line with the fundamental rules of God which must be maintained by all. For instance, one of the fundamental rules is that you should not arouse or awaken love until it so desires (Song of Songs 2:7, NIV). You can agree with me that boyfriend/girlfriend relationship arouses and awakens love and that violets the fundamental rule of God. Therefore, stay away from it and wait for the time appointed for you to marry.

Also, look at this: “You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God (James 4:4). One way people become friends in the world is to have a boyfriend/girlfriend. This is because the concept of boyfriend/girlfriend was invented by the world and it is controlled by the world. Whoever is involved in it does not belong to God. You can make your choice now! Whom do you belong? Is it God or the devil (the world)? If you belong to God you need to say no to boyfriend/girlfriend relationship. Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world, but let God transform you inwardly by a complete change of your mind (Romans 12:2). The standard of this world, in this context, is having a boyfriend/girlfriend. Change your mind from it completely so God can transform your life.

The final counsel on this matter is: “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what [a]fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what [b]communion has light with darkness? 15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? 16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you[c] are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people.” 17 Therefore “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you.” (2 Corinthians 6:14-18)

You are too important and valuable to be wasted in a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship. The Lord desires that you take a stand to say “no” to it so you can become His temple (Dwelling place or house). He wants you to be relevant to His kingdom. Accept His invitation to stand for Him now.  Here I am (Christ)! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me (Revelation 3:20). Don’t miss this opportunity to meet with the Lord Jesus.

Because we have these promises, dear friends, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that can defile our body or spirit. And let us work toward complete holiness because we fear God (2 Corinthians 7:1).

Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again (1 Thessalonians 5:23).God bless you.
