So,I’m 18 (almost 19) and I’ve NEVER had a boyfriend, or gone on a real date. Part of it has to do with the fact I was really awkward when I was younger, but now it’s transitioned into trusting God and His timing for me. I’d rather not go through a bunch of heartbreak and tears, and I really want to stay pure for my future husband.
Well, in about the past year I’ve started steadily praying for my future husband and waiting for an answer from God. When I started college, I thought for sure I would find my future husband there (Christian college=Mrs. Degree, hahaha). And ya, I’ve looked, and prayed, and thought God was telling me something, but everything has turned out to be just my desires jumping ahead of God.
Now, jump ahead to this past week. It seemed like lately I’d been praying to God to not jump to conclusions and to trust His timing and wait till he send me a clear signal. While on FB, I saw some pictures from my home church and there was this guy. I had seen him before; he just returned from missionary work and had a huge love for God and children/youth. And he was cute. But he was older than. Like, by at least 3 years. At first, I didn’t think anything of it, but later that day, he popped back into my head, out of no where, several times. I prayed about. Same thing happened for another two days. Finally, I just prayed, “What are you trying to say to me God?”, and it seemed like a wave of peace and reassurance surrounded me, and I felt something, deep down seem to say, ‘he’s the one. but you have to trust My timing”.
And now, here I am a week later, confused and unsure what to do. I mean for one, I’ve never had a conversation with this guy. And he’s older than me! And I guess I just feel like I’m just jumping to more conclusion now! I really need some other Godly women advice, and I don’t feel that comfortable talking to some of the women (or even my mom) in my church. Thank you so much in advance! Loves!

hmmm……I don’t know if there’s much else you can do in this situation rather than wait it out and continue praying..Obviously not the most exciting idea, but considering you don’t know this guy, I would just accept that if it’s met to be it will, if not, it was just a passing crush and God has something better in mind!! 🙂 As a side note, the age thing wouldn’t bother me at all! Considering you are both over the age of 18, a few years is totally fine. My parents have a 7 year age difference, haha!!
