Hey girls! I’m hoping for some encouragement here. So I am 23 and last year, I dated my first guy ever. It didn’t last long but it gave me the confidence boost that I needed because I was getting worried that I would never date and no one liked me. But it’s going to be 1 year since then and no guy has made any move to ask me out. I’m afraid that God doesn’t want me to date and that I will be single for life. I pray about it a lot and I know that He has the most amazing plan for my life, but I’m scared that it will never happen to me again. I know I should be patient and that the right guy will come in God’s time, but it’s so hard. I am naturally shy and quiet, so it’s hard for me to meet people.

Plus, I don’t have real friends, which makes it even harder on my self-confidence. There are girls I get along with and can hang out with, but I don’t consider them as real friends because I’m always the one making plans, so it makes me wonder if I’m really needed and appreciated since no one tries to contact me.

Anyways, that’s my story. I don’t have any questions but if you have any advice or words of encouragement, that would help a lot. Thanks and happy end of Summer!

Deedee, I can totally understand where you are right now! But here are somethings that are just on my heart to share:
In prayer, pray for opportunities to meet people! And pray for the confidence for you to approach them 🙂
Also, perhaps it is simply in God’s plan for you not to marry! I have had to face that fear, and it is becoming more of a reality! I really struggled with the thought of not ever finding “the one”… until it hit me, that is just society talking. That every woman needs her man to be happy- we revolve around that so much as a society now! Please, please pray that you first find peace and wholeness in being an individual in Christ… and once you are truly just that, perhaps God will throw in a man 🙂 but if not? That’s okay! Because your ultimate peace and happiness doesn’t come from a guy.

I hope this helps in some way! Prayers are coming your way 🙂
