Singleness + Dating
My attempt to focus on the joys of the not-yet, the narratives of my dating mishaps, and my adventure of looking for the beautiful in the seasons of barrenness acknowledging the longings and doubts but also basking in the moments of here and now.
Born-again Christian singles are terrified of male/female friendships. It's easy to avoid friendships that could very well be the foundation of a blessing in life or even build the framework for a future relationship. Ladies (and gents) take off the pressure of getting married and be open to making friends.
Don't work ahead of God. Don't finish your story mentally before He has finished it in reality.
DATING IS NOT ALWAYS ABOUT MARRIAGE BUT IT CAN BE A BEGINNING OF GREAT AND LIFELONG FRIENDSHIPS.
As I look at my life and progression through it, there are so many things I know now about dating and relationships that I wish I knew then. Here's what I can say for now - just as curiosity can kill the cat, assumptions can break the heart. So, take out the assumption and just let the friendship blossom.
