where are all the single christian men??
« on: August 20, 2008, 11:01:39 PM »
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??
We sit secure in time-honored traditions made
And never wondering when and where the sickle may come
If we don't seek the knowledge to be greater men
When the rain starts coming, going to drown before we get our feet wet

We build our ivory towers to protect us from the flood
A fleet of vessels made of wood so they won't rust
But can we see the bottom of the bottle when we start to drink?
There's fire on the mountain, fire, and it's coming our way

Single Christian guys usually hang out at churches. unfortunately, i've seen that christian singles are reluctant to date people in their churches because if they break up then they will have to see eachother in church and it will be awkward and then one of them will feel they have to leave and find another church. it is really silly.

Thatgirl, this might be a silly question, but...

Do you attend a church?  Is it a congregation of 12 people??  What is your situation?

A study was done recently and printed in the Times of India, that due to the "fatherhood effect," males practicing polygamy live longer.  And I do only have ONE wife, so............

i just graduated from college and am currently working and applying to veterinary school, so for the time being i am living at home to save money. i live in a small town too. all of the guys around my age are away, either in college or living elsewhere. so yes, i kid you not, there are no guys my age (early 20's). i barely even have friends my age who are nearby at the moment.

i apologize for sounding so desperate in my original post lol. rereading it now, i really sound more desperate than i am.

Well if/when you go to veterinary school you'll most likely be in a bigger town.  With all the intensity of vet school, you'd probably be better off without a signigficant other.  (I hope that doesn't sound too harsh.)  I met the guy I married when I was about your age, and looking back, I think I was in too much of a rush.

You do not sound desperate.  I am a single CHRISTian male, but sadly at 35 I am an old single CHRISTian male...lol.  But if you are looking for friends let me know.  I am here for all my friends.

And what type is that?
I cannot do anything for God.  God can do anything through me.

Still waiting for God to show up?  Good news - He's already here.

If you want to live what seems like a long life, try being married.   ::eatingpopcorn:

I am married, but there are single men right on this message board, and some may be wondering where the single Christian ladies hang out.

I gave up looking more than 20 years ago. Of course, many would say I had my chance with two marriages that failed. Those miserable marriages are the reason I realized that I'm better off single.

For those who are still looking, I hope that God leads you to the right one the first time. There is no one for me, and I should have stayed single and saved myself a lot of misery.

I had to  laugh to myself when I saw the title of this message because me and my friends often wonder the same thing. I've walked in your shoes and know how you feel when it comes to watching all of your friends find godly husbands and get married or engaged, etc. What has helped me is really focusing on getting myself together and preparing myself to  be what it is I'm praying for in a mate. There is nothing worse than to be unprepared when your opportunity or blessing comes! Psalm 84:11 is one of my favorite verses "No good thing will the Lord withhold from those who walk uprightly." If the Lord hasn't caused your mate to "find you" yet then its not the right time because the Word says He doesn't withhold the good things so I would encourage to pray ask the Lord to show you the areas He wants you to work on as a young woman of God so that you can be prepared for Him first and then for the mate God has chosen for you. Also in regards to needing to be where the men are remember God doesn't need our help as women in finding our mates. Proverbs 18:22 says "he that finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord." The Lord will see to it that your husband finds you. Be encouraged and God Bless! A good book to read that I just started is "Before You Do" By TD Jakes.
