How do I get MS Word 2013 to stop asking me to save changes to the template?

From the start page in word, I select a template. After typing some stuff and saving, I press the "X" button. Before I can do that, Word asks me "Would you like to save changes to the template" This is very annoying. Why would I want to change a template? It's called a template for a reason. Is there anyway to disable this message?
