There are many single Christian women out there simply frustrated with the process of dating and relationships.
It can feel like there is so much unnecessary nonsense attached, and that causes some to lose hope.
It is easy to see only the positive in the other person and completely ignore any warning signs. It would be foolish to date someone and not even consider the possible outcomes.
Not only would it be foolish, but downright selfish.
Is it wrong that I am disappointed that there is apparently no sex in heaven? Also, holding my gas in public was becoming inconvenient, glad I can just let go and let God. Running around naked and convincing my husband to do things seems ideal. Check out more from Nina Borum on her blog and follow her on Twitter!
But there are some things that Jesus doesn’t do like take out the trash, rub my feet and you know the whole sex thing. You will find a man that loves you just the way you are. That gym membership was cutting into my fast food budget anyway. That would be easy, except that I’ve kind of always wanted to be more like Eve. Have you ever heard some ridiculous Christian dating advice?
Also, the fact that I have been saving my first kiss for my future husband is no longer cute now that I’m 30. I may or may not have googled “How to Kiss” a few months ago.
If there is always that possibility, then you must ask yourself whether this person has the qualities you will need in a husband. Ask yourself these questions: How strong is his relationship with Jesus Christ? How passionate is he about reading God’s Word, prayer, and fellowship with other believers in a biblically solid church? However, in Ephesians Paul compares a husband’s role toward his wife with that of Christ’s role toward His Bride, the Church, “Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, the she might be holy and without blemish,” (Ephesians -27, emphasis mine).
Relationship building with the opposite sex is risky, but in God's created order This may sound old-fashioned, but I believe it not for the sake of tradition, which of necessity comes and goes, but because it is biblical.
Marriage is meant to be, among other things, an illustration of the relationship between Christ and the church (Ephesians 5); the husband typifies Christ and the wife typifies the church.
I know this is wrong and that I should only get advice from people who tithe regularly and vote the right way but I have taken all the advice below and find that I am still single.
