I have struggled with almost the same exact thing, so I know exactly how you feel and what you're going through. When I was much younger, I was never really close to boys, but now that I'm older, I have friendships with guys, and it's easy for my (very overactive, imaginative) mind to wander. As hard as it can be, God has been teaching me quite a few things on this in the past couple years. Can I share them with you?
Even if thoughts of boyfriends and romance remain only in our thoughts, it can lead to lust and adultery in our hearts, both which are sins and can cause us future damage as it shapes ideals of future relationships in the mind. Not to mention that any sin will hurt our relationship with God, because that's what sin does.
I know it's a struggle, but hang in there! God is good and God is faithful. He's so good that He even helps us with our boy problems! ☺
The Word of God can be our help and our strength and can help us out of every temptation (1 Corinthians 10:13). Even if fantasies of boyfriends and romance remain only in our thoughts, it can lead to lust and adultery in our hearts, both which are sins and can cause us future damage as it shapes ideals of future relationships in the mind. If you're feeling boy crazy, turn your focus toward God and becoming a godly woman. If God plans for you to marry, He will bring the right man to you. Your job now is to live for God—not for a future boyfriend or husband.
