Have friends. Friends can like you without doing kissing or anything if that nature. I find friendships really helped me get that connection I needed.
Guard your heart. Sometimes we are trying to fill a hole in our lives either before we are ready or instead of putting Jesus in that place.
Hows your relationship with God? Jesus had lots of friends and it's good to connect with people, but would you say you are totally ready to get married? I wouldn't have said that about myself at your age. I would prepare myself and guard my heart for the future if I were you.
If anything, commit to at least 6 months of platonic friendship. If the feelings are still there and things might look like you are both heading in the same direction in life, ask God what he thinks.
(of love or friendship) intimate and affectionate but not sexual.
"their relationship is purely platonic"
