TSL: Let’s Discuss It

I’m keeping this post short and sweet. A few weeks ago one of my online friends asked a question in our secret group. I won’t share the name of the friend or her exact question, but the question has been haunting me ever since.

Since my last relationship ended over 3 years ago, I have chosen to remain single. It is one of the reasons that you won’t find me writing about dating or courting or whatever. I dislike dating. I know that I’m not alone in that. I have heard a lot of other singles say the same thing. I have heard it said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. That is what dating feels like to me. Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting the relationship to end differently each time.

Because of this and a few other things I have reached a point in my life where I’m really starting to question my desire to be married which leads me to my questions for you:

Have you ever reached a point in your own life where you have questioned whether you really want to marry or not?

If you have, what led you to that point and what decision did you come to?

I would really love to open this up to discussion and sharing so please leave a comment below sharing your thoughts on the questions.

  3. We are quite different. Glad we can still join in the “link up” despite the differences that make us unique. Feels kinda comic to share the link-up for my current series (though its about a whole lot more than what to look for in a potential spouse) with your post today… <3 I can't comment on the question you wanted to discuss, but I wanted to comment to share I did read it. Nothing super amazing, just a comment. Praying for you, Misty. What a blessing to have that desire removed. I have prayed if it's not God's will then that He would take the desire from me.

    1. Oh, I think that differences are wonderful. The world would be a very boring place if everyone looked the same and acted the same all of the time, and I’m enjoying your series on what to look for in a potential spouse.

      Honestly, I can’t say that God has removed my desire for marriage, but I have been questioning if marriage is for me. I’m simply trying to determine if I can better serve the Lord and others as a single woman for my lifetime or if I should be more intentional about pursuing marriage.

  4. Yes I have! Several times since I turned 30 and beyond. I am okay with it. I can sustain myself financially. I do what I’m most passionate about (blogging). I have great friends. I can travel. I am happy. My only worry or fear which I try to kick through faith every day is what people will say if they find out someday that I’m old enough to be a mom yet I’m still single.

    Faith and confidence in knowing who you really are and what you really want helps

    But right now I’m positive that I want my own family. 🙂
