I’m often asked why I’m still single and I never really have a good answer.
Maybe I didn’t try hard enough during my years at a Christian college to snag a mate. Maybe I gave up on singles groups at church too easily. Maybe it’s because I’ve never gotten on board with online dating. Or maybe there just aren't enough single men for all the single women out there.
All I know is that I just haven’t met a man I could imagine spending my life with.
I know it wasn’t the man I came close to marrying just after college. Not the divorced youth pastor. Not the widower with two young children.
Not the man I met at work who didn’t want to come to church, but on our third date invited me to see him performing a nude scene in a local play.
Not the man friends fixed me up with who asked me on our first meeting if I’d be content to just hang around the house with him or did we actually have to go out on a date.
Some of the men I’ve dated were Christians and some weren’t, but honestly I didn’t always see much of a difference between them.
