But as logical and tempting as it seems, Camerin learned the dangers of dating a non-Christian.
Once there was a good Christian girl who dreamed of growing up, getting married, and having children.
She read all the right books and did all the right things.
But the knowing ones, the Christians who seemed to have all the answers, told her, "You're young, there's plenty of time, and you need to learn patience." So she concentrated on her education without worrying too much about men.

There, with members of my Bible study, a friend and I quizzed our fellow member Emily about the guy she was spending more and more time with. Emily assured us he was a “really great guy” and that we needn’t worry since they were “just friends.” Well, three months later these “just friends” were dating.
