By Nikki Weatherford As a survivor and graduate of the single life, I have met and conquered many of the common struggles that come with singleness. I remember singleness and how lonely it made life at times.

It is human nature to desire companionship and intimacy, but there is a right and wrong way to pursue these desires. Especially around those disgusting couples who insist on slobbering all over each other right in front of you.

Men are frustrated because they don't understand what women want from them.

In order to live a happy, single life we must understand and accept the circumstances that surround it. Before you can have an intimate relationship with another person, you must engage in an intimate relationship with Christ. Compared to the Greek translation of scripture, the English version is extremely watered down.

In our culture we use the word “love” to cover a huge span of emotions.

She didn’t notice the hour growing late as she continued to pray.

An owl in a nearby tree awoke and in a low voice said, “Who-oo!

Then we had our own 8 children and before we knew it – the subject of girls, boys, love, and marriage came up. While it’s tempting to try and tuck love into some tidy box, it will never work like that. Rather than depending on someone else’s “step-by-step”, listen to the Spirit and how He is guiding. The world wants you to think that your happiness depends on finding the perfect guy – or girl. If you are a believer in Christ, then your joy is found in Him. Read the classic love stories found there, follow the instruction of the New Testament, and don’t forget the wisdom found in the book of Proverbs.

As it turned out, a few months later I reluctantly agreed to go on a “blind date” and knew immediately that I’d met the man I would marry. So that’s as close as I could come to “marrying without dating”. True love can be amazing, but it really doesn’t “fix” everything. Even the Bible talks about “the way of a man with a maid” as too wonderful to understand (Prov. Observe them in different contexts – work, home, leisure – and ask others what they see too.

”I don’t know, but I sure wished there was another way. No need to be in a big, fat hurry DO take the time to assess the other person’s character. So don’t convince yourself that you know it all and understand everything.

Getting involved in a relationship – and deciding who you want to spend the rest of your life with – is a HUGE deal. No one has it all together, so why not embrace the fact that you’ll probably need to learn a thing or two in the process?

And yet I’m still not a great fan of dating – especially “recreational” dating (). Our young people aren’t too enthusiastic about either of these options.
