Christian boy + Mormon girl, part 2

Last Monday, Ask Mormon Girl answered its first inquiry from L.M., a 15 year-old Christian boy with a crush on a 16 year-old Mormon girl. It wasn’t long before a second query from L.M. arrived in our askmormongirl@gmail.com inbox:

Hello Mrs. Brooks,

Thank you for your advice, I found it very helpful. I don’t know who she hangs out with, but I would like to get to know them…. If it turns out that she’s not interested, at least I will have made a few friends in the process. I’ll let you know what comes of it. By the way, what are some of the differences between Mormon and Christian beliefs that I should know about? The last thing that I want is to offend someone, especially such a nice girl as her.

Thanks again,

L.M.

So there I was, my askmormongirl@gmail.com account barely three months old, when it arrived from uncharted reaches of the internet universe:  a bonafide query about the Mormon world I know and love.

Hello Mrs. Brooks,

I have a 16 year old mormon friend, and I am attracted to her.  I am 15, and I am not a Mormon.  I am, however, a Christian.  She knows that I like her, and I think that she likes me, too.  I don’t know what I should do, because both of those things can create some problems if I ask her out.  I turn 16 in April.  Should I wait until then to ask her out?  Any advice that you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

L.M.
