Tired of being single dating
Phrases like “expect it when you least expect it’ or “when you’re not looking, it will happen” are also problematic. Some were addicted to pornography, some were into drugs and prostitution, and as a result they were unable to love and commit themselves to marriage. Two of them told me they knew better before they married but just didn’t want to break up and start the whole dating process over. Being tired of dating or afraid of being alone is understandable, but being married to the wrong person can easily turn life into a living hell – and is a very bad reason to get married to the wrong person.
It seems impossible not to be looking when your heart feels certain your calling is to be married. you say to someone who’s painfully single and dating?

Some days you’re fine with your current life and some days you feel like maybe you shouldn’t have broken up with that cute guy who seemed great on paper even though he made you feel worthless.
You know, the guy you thought might be your last hope. If you had asked me at 25 or 30 what was so hard about my journey of singlehood, I would have said “nearly everything.” Loneliness, every financial stress, going home at Christmas alone, going to Mass alone on Christmas Eve, practicing chastity for years on end when those I dated thought of it as an exciting challenge.
” But the truth is…sometimes I think the reason I’m still single is because I’m inherently flawed. I’m simply going to tell you that whatever your fears are about being single, you’re not alone.

And in doing that, my friends, I feel I have done you a disservice. It’s recently been called to my attention that I use positivity as a defense mechanism. That my humanity and my imperfections were a turnoff to him. I can’t blame all of my self doubts on men, though. That’s a refusal to take responsibility for my own life and choices and attitudes and self image, and I won’t do that. “You’re too ugly.” “You’re too fat.” “You have a gap in your teeth.” “You look old.” “You’ve done too many bad things in your life and you don’t deserve to ever find love.” “God has forgotten you.” “It’s so easy for everyone else and so difficult for you.” “You’re meant to wander the earth alone forever.” “You will always be on the outside, looking in.” And on and on and on, like a broken record. (But I don’t and doubt I will ever have a thigh gap. Part of being the heroine of your own life is accepting the bad with the good.
Where the truth comes out and it’s not the slightest bit pretty, or inspirational, or even positive. It’s also a truth I have kept to myself because of its ugliness. Convinced the person telling me that HAD to be mistaken. If I choose to let in the darkness and the sadness and the REALNESS…won’t I sink in it? I think I’m starting to come to a better understanding of why…but for the moment, it’s still just shadowed and blurry truth that I’m struggling to make sense of. A few years ago I felt like I could simply walk into a room and command the attention of the men in the room. I suspect it was more an internal change than an external one, as I honestly think I physically look better now than I did ten years ago.

Other times, guys seem so pointless, you don't understand why we haven't shipped them all off to another planet via some rocket ships, the future of humanity be damned. No, instead, you'll have this exchange with your best friend: You: Omg, he seriously isn't texting me back after we just had that amazing date which included him feeding me chocolate-covered strawberries. Even though those instances can be insanely frustrating, aren't they kind of the most fun to talk about? You: When we're old and single can we live together with a bunch of cats?
