Dear Inthe..I'm Tired Of Waiting For Love

(Press Play Button)

In this episode, I answer a #DearInthe question from a young lady tempted to feel insecure about the fact that she's never been in a relationship and tired of playing the "waiting game".

Dear Inthe,

Without talking too much, let me just say thanks so much for all you do and may God bless and reward you for being candid and selfless. Amen.I am a 26 year old female, turning 27 this year and I have never been in a relationship-yes, you read that right. I went out on my first date last March with a guy who stared at me like a piece of steak! In hindsight, maybe I shouldn't have put on that red lipstick. Haha! I don't recall the last time a guy approached me though I have been introduced/hooked up with a few people, some I have agreed to meet in the spirit of keeping an open mind but usually there has is no connection. I've been told I'm picky but I know thats not the case.

Waiting for the snow |013/365|

I'm not looking for anything unrealistic in a man, I'm just not ready to date for dating sake at this point, I want to be in a serious relationship with someone who is mature and sees marriage in his near future. Inthe, I won't lie, it really bothers me though thankfully, most days I'm good but once in a while I feel so terrible about it all and start questioning myself, so not good for my self-esteem. I've heard people say its not a big deal, that I'm still young, I understand that, but when you have NEVER been in a relationship after a time, you start to get tired and wonder if it will ever happen. This is affecting my prayer life seriously and it saddens me. I need some advise please (sometimes I wonder if what I need is advice or patience?).

this might be long so forgive me for coming to write an epistle on your post.

First, thank you for stopping by my blog. I shouted when I read the June wedding, July pregnancy thing; I really don't pray for life's surprises like that. Lol.

The advice you gave this lady in one way or the other says something to me, so thank you for sharing your thoughts. I'm about to read the While you wait series...

Finally, on the blog backup thing; like I said, it's not a 100% secure means as such so I'm not surprised if for someone who has a lot of posts, it didn't backup every post. I'll look again; and I hope to find a better method which I will surely tell you. In the mean time, maybe you should try it again...maybe.

Thanks again for stopping by. Cheers :)

Sound advice! If anyone had told me a couple of years ago to wait till I was just about ready for marriage before getting romantically involved with anyone, I'd have told them to find somewhere and sit down. Now I know better.

Going to read While You Wait series...
