i just feel sometimes like i have no options in this garbage dump of a world!
a bunch of my friends are getting married soon/have gotten married already, and they have found very nice christian husbands! where is mine???
granted, i am only 22, but i know that if i found the right guy, i would be ready to get married. and i have lived a long life in my 22 years.
i mean, where do you christian guys hang out?? because i need to be there!
wow, i sound really desperate, don't i??
No, you are not desperate nor are you in any way out of line, since:"The supreme happiness of a human being, is the absolute immutable conviction they are loved by another......."
I'm not sure how to answer in a carte blanche way to provide a map of heart to the question. I can speak personally however.
In that, my parents are an example: they met when they were both 20 and 21. They dated for 10 days. They were married for 57 years. At the end, when daddy and I put her ashes in the river, The Stillwater, that ran through the ranch. Daddy and I watched her ashes swirl away in the stream. He then said, quietly, through the coming emotion, "Son, the only thing wrong with that marriage is it was too f__king short!"
I replied "oh daddy", and we both held each other and cried.
I am a product of that union, and I am my father's son.
I was married once, to my deceased wife of 15 years my junior. She was 20 and I was 35. She was Asian-Mexican and truly beautiful and my utter delight in every way. Wew both were overjoyed with each other. We used to say, "make love, cook and laugh with abandon", when discussing why we never werr apart for those 9 years we had together.
So, modernism and the "de-maling" of the men in our culture (see: 'Save The Males' - http://www.savethemales.ca/index.html
), the men have been demonized to the point they simply have either withdrawn, gave up, replaced romance for sports and booze or the other 3 avarices of man, or, they just simply fled the country.
This has made it rarer for men to be available and also, the more that this culture, so called 'Christian culture', wants to make men into 'girls', the more that the Wild of Heart male is harder to find.
For me, I traffic in adventure, outside the country to the far sides of the world. I seldom come back to the US. I have not dated an American female since a junior in High School. It is a very cold place.
The man that would find you and come to your gate and try to enter into you, in the ways a man would do in the adventure of heart and romance, would be one that traffics on the edge of life and adventure, like going to a rodeo, an off road adventure park, an Archeology-Anthropology convention, a center where firemen hang out, or EMTs, or, maybe a website that caters to romantic Christian heart, without editing those men off the board.
You will find what you desire, as the Lord watches His daughters and knows who and what you need, when He sends you The Stranger At Your Gate........
Bless you maiden and meanwhile, read Isaiah 54:1-8, for all the maidens as yourself who are alone and trying to find heart and the other half of themselves.
