A Wise Counsel Answer "Recently, this nice Christian guy at our church has shown interest in me. We have talked on and off, but we aren't flirting or anything. My parents are concerned about it, but I'm not sure why. Is it wrong to talk to a guy as long as you don't have anything more than that as your motive?”
An answer by Elizabeth B. I would encourage you to come under the authority of your parents in this. They are your God given authority and I can say from personal experience that it is such a blessing and gives so much peace to be under parents’ authority. God has given you to your parents and if you are under their authority He will protect you and work out His plan for your life through their guidance.
No matter how old you are, if you are not married God’s plan is for you to be under their leadership. I’m 23 and I know that it is well worth it to be under my parents authority. God has directed my life through my parents many times all I have to do is not only obey but be sensitive to their desires for my life. If you put yourself under their authority you are not putting your trust in them but in the Lord and He is trust worthy!
As far as your motive, yours may be just friendliness but you can't know that his motives are. He may not know that you are just being friendly and it would be defrauding him for you to lead him on not knowing what his motive is.
