Singleness can be a great blessing. In American culture we get it wrong a lot with dating and relationships. I’ve no doubt similar stories are abundant in other cultures as well. I enjoy my life to the fullest and I am a single thirty-four (almost thirty-five) year old. Many seem to believe that if they could only find that perfect someone then they would be complete and their life would be so much richer. Well, my life is already rich. And there are no perfect someones.
If I ever do meet the right lady I know a few things we would have to have in common. Happiness, Christian faith and her being her own unique soul would be necessary. I am convinced that I cannot complete a woman and a woman cannot complete me. If I’m not complete on my own before entering into a relationship then I will weigh her down with my selfishness and vice versa. Sometimes it seems that folks believe marriage will make life easier. I think in a lot of ways it would complicate life. But this needn’t be a bad thing.
A joyful attitude is highly attractive. It can win one a lot of friends. Perhaps friendships at times are underrated and romantic relationships at times are overrated. If I ever fall in love I’d say it’ll begin with a quality friendship.
If you’re single then be content. If you’re married then be good to your spouse. If you’re dating then be worthy of those dates. Wherever you are at in life tell yourself you’re of great value. The science book of selling yourself short is a book not worth checking out of the library of life. Life moves magnificently fast and is a miraculous ride.
Enjoy the ride with a ticket for one or tickets for two.
