Alright, so we're gonna talk about the thing that you're actually wondering about right now.
Have I dated anyone before?
I ask you, have you?
Every single blog or YouTube channel seems to address this. It's such an important and prominent thing in our culture and all those before us. Romantic relationships have so much pressure and thought on them.
I do have to say, that yes, I am single. No, I have NEVER had a boyfriend. And you know what? I've almost always been okay with that.
I mean, we all go through that weird time when we're 13 when we just hate everything and want everything else...
But other than that, I've actually not been sure if I even want to get married.
That is something that is so strange for people to hear, but I honestly do not feel driven to get married. Do I think that I will get married someday and be okay with it? Yes. But I've never felt like "now" is the time.
I have so much that I want to do, SO much. Some people's dreams are simple, and they are okay with that. My dreams are many, huge, and adventurous. I need to step out in faith and do some scary and crazy things before my whole future is settled. I don't want that for myself! At least, not right now. Give me a few years to get my adventure on!!
So, that being said.. I actually think that I would be okay with being married, or with being single. Like, forever. It's all about being satisfied in wherever you're at, because God has created a beautiful thing in you, to love and to serve in a unique way. It's incredible!
I'm telling you all of this to say this:
Being single is not who you are. It is where you are, but it does not change ANYTHING about who God intended you to be. And if you're married or dating, then that shouldn't change who you are supposed to be either.
Be content with where you are, and WHO you are in Christ. 1 Peter 5:6-7
