Lonely. Wanting love

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I don't want to go into a long thing here and seem like I'm complaining,  and because honestly I'm tired of crying about this. And I'm also tired of people saying to be happy in your singleness (truth be told it's incredibly annoying sometimes). I am happy, but I'm lonely, and longing to meet that guy who I'll marry someday.

Hi Willa, I know this isn't a dating service. I also know that the perfect man doesn't exist. 

It's just upsetting to see so many friends of mine getting married and me still having that desire. I know I'm complete without a man. I dont feel incomplete.  Adam was in the Garden of Eden and was lonely. So I know there is nothing wrong with feeling like that.

Hi PurpkeOrchid...It is good to be part of a God fearing couple..like having a double portion of the Spirit...The goal is to be eternal minded and be filled with love for God and for others...God bless

Shalom PurpleOrchid,

No there is nothing wrong with feeling like that, it's totally natural.  

But be encouraged sister.  Yahweh knows your heart and your complaint. He may well have a man currently being prepared for you and making his way across your path. 

I know before I met my wife I genuinely thought and made preparations in my heart to remain single and alone.  However, the timing of our meet was perfect (in hindsight).  I had things to learn and so did she and, when the moment was just right, we met and thought it was just a friendship at first. But it quickly developed into a confidence of "you're special".

Be encouraged sister and be at peace.  As best as you can, try to be patient.  Trust in Him and His Goodness. Have faith in His perfect Will and His loving heart towards us. and remain prayerful on the subject  If you focus your heart and time on the kingdom of God, everything else will be added unto you.

Love & Shalom

      I have this silly concern and constant worry about my decisions displeasing God. So many of my goals and things I want to do aren’t necessarily Christian based. I like doing things such as watching certain shows that have cussing and sexual content in them....but they are so entertaining....I’ve been told that even the little things I like to do, such as working out, is based on vanity. But I really just love working out because it makes me feel complete. I’m even a little afraid of getting in a relationship because of the fear of feeling something sinful such as lust or immoral thoughts. Back when I was younger, I didn’t mind these things much. But now, I’m at an age where I should know better. I don’t want to live this way anymore. I need to find an inner peace. God Bless.

      My friends, I need your help. I'll do my best not to make this too long, although it is a bit of a story.
      Back in October, I saw a need in my church choir and reached out to a guy that was relatively new and was essentially getting shunned by most of the other men because he has tattoos and his ears are pierced. I actually feel really bad because I waited for a few months after I felt the initial tug and I wonder if I would be struggling so much if I hadn't. Anyway...we clicked almost immediately and soon we were talking practically every day. We are very similar and deal with a lot of the same struggles, such as depression. We've opened up to one another on a level that I've only ever replicated with my two best friends of 13+ years and we can talk for hours without it feeling like any time has passed. He has quickly become a close friend, one that I greatly cherish. 
      My issue is this: I have developed romantic feelings for him, feelings that I'm pretty sure he doesn't return. He is in a relationship at this point and it's a relationship he said he has prayed for, despite that this girl has caused him a lot of heartache. It's hard for me to watch since I don't feel she is good for him and obviously I feel that I am. It's also hard because he is one that will ghost out on the people around him when he gets wrapped up in his own affairs. He doesn't mean to, he just has had really bad examples of friendship and I'm the first one that actually fights to keep him grounded. 
      So how do I maintain this friendship in a Godly way without letting my own bias get in the way and how do I move on from my feelings? If you need me to answer any further questions that might help give better advice, please feel free to ask. I have probably forgotten something in my attempt to keep this short.

      Those still dealing with the pain of church hurt and healing and separation from those who have justified it with sayings like "eh they were learning"

      If you divorce or get married twice is that a sin?
