Can I be real with you guys in this entry? I hate not being in a relationship… I’ve been single for eight years, with each interaction with the opposite sex consisting of just rejection after rejection and heartbreak after heartbreak. It’s a pretty crappy feeling. I honestly wish I had someone who I could hang out with and be loved by. I’m happier and in a better place than I’ve ever been, but it still feels like there’s something missing. It’s like there’s a piece of me that can only be completed by the embrace of a woman who I care about.
At the same time, I just can’t deal with any more heartbreak. In the Bible, Proverbs 31 talks about the wife of noble character. About how “charm and beauty are fleeting.” Looks don’t last forever, so when that woman you’re with is older and not as attractive as when you met her — what will she have left? Character matters more than anything else. Heartbreak teaches you to raise your standards higher: To seek companionship with women of good character. I want righteous people around me, so why would the woman I choose to be with be any different? I hate being lonely, but singleness is better than being in an unhappy relationship.
