  1. Waiting and Loneliness

    Hello! Thank you very much @Aparajita for your feedback. Our stories are somehow similar. I was also in a toxic relationship that ended a year ago and have been going through what you are describing. I'm also more on the introverted part although I'm as well a social person. I work right now and attending teaching courses and planning to continue my studies. So we have quite few in common. I think I should start working out regularly and I do find my peace and am in my element when I am with friends from church. TV or serials are not my choice but I can understand and respect yours. Treating myself from time to time yes works for me too. I wish you all the best in your new work setting. Home decor is cool. I just moved recently and am thinking of aranging my room in a personal way... thank you very much for your encouragement! I'm sure the same for you. God bless you!

    I understand... thank you for your feedback @mewaiting. I hope someday soon you will meet that special person you are waiting for.
  3. Waiting and Loneliness

    It wasn't a rant, thank you for sharing your viewpoint Vince! I agree with you in everything you said, especially liked the part when you said that this desire can become an idol and we should indeed be careful about that. Nothing in our lives or ourselves should take God's deserved first place. And if He is first, we shouldn't worry about the other things because He knows what we need (better than us) and will be faithful to give it to us because He loves us and wants our best. Thanks again and God bless you!
  4. Hello waiting world! I don't know if the topic of loneliness has been discussed before but I personally felt the need to bring it up. Unevitably us being waiters also means that we have to face a lot of time being on our own. Even though this world is rich and diverse enough to not have time to be lonely, feelings like this slip inevitably. I am curious how you personally deal with this when it comes up and what is your to go solution in this situation. This has been on my mind even though I'm quite busy at the time and don't have too much alone/lonely time. Any ideas? Thanks! Curious for your responses.

  6. Really happy it has helped you @Adam, you're welcome! Absolutely, I believe good things come to those who wait is especially available for us, waiting 'till marriage'ers. Thank you for your thoughts and encouragements!
  7. I completely agree with you. God only has our best in His plans for us. This is our duty also, to share the light we have been given on matters like this. In the end the choice to follow God's Word or not remains to us - this also a form of His love for us. Thank you for your thoughts @Theo God bless you too!
  8. Thanks Vince! I'm really sorry to hear about those boys but in the end we are the sum of our choices, right? My non christian friends also don't understand my reasons to wait besides labeling it as my religious choice even though there are demonstrated real life benefits to it. I so agree with you! Thinking of the consequences of our choices (something few of us do) can be a great motivator when the waiting gets tough. Absolutely. The awkwardness is there no matter the person so why not have it with the person you are most open to be intimate with. I think growing and learning besides our partner can be the most beautiful and enriching experience in life. I admit I'm scared of this idea of memories plaguing my marriage and this is a big reason why I pray my future husband is also a wtmer. I don't want to be compared even involuntarily in his memories with any of his exes... Thank you very much for your comment Vince. Wise and edifying!
  9. Having some struggles of my own, this video came up in my youtube feed and was exacly what I needed to hear.(Thank you God) It's from the perspective of a woman but I believe it can be available for males as well. It really encouraged and enforced my core belief that sex is best in the context of marriage. I hope it will bless you too like it has blessed me. Enjoy!
  10. How do you know if he/she is the one?

    Thanks for the clarification @redgrapes. After my experience, I also agree with you. We wanted also to get married but we were a bit unrealistic, hence it didn't last. Also I would like to add how important is to know the person before you get married and not thinking you will have a lot of time after you get married. But I believe the rest of the wtmers are not so naive as I was. About the signs, I don't want to get too much into details but I will give some examples. I don't believe in coincidences. I believe everything does happen for a reason but we don't always know or learn why. We are permited to get tempted only to cling to God even stronger. We got signs as names, numbers, dates while walking together or solo in the city. At one point someone drew a graffiti of my family name (only in english) on the building where he lives and nobody knew we were together, except really close people. For us it was like when people say the "universe conspires" for us to be together. But at the same time even though we had many things and likings in common and really liked each other, we didn't have the most important foundation (in my opinion) the faith one and this eventually was why we didn't last.

    Loved this. Really good humor. Thanks! Sometimes you just know...
  12. How do you know if he/she is the one?

    I totally agree with you and with the video (thanks for sharing by the way!) Marriage is something really important in our lives when we get into it so the foundation on which we build it will eventually be the most important part that will show on the long run and on long term. Thanks for your for your opinnion! God bless
  13. How do you know if he/she is the one?

    I'm really glad it was helpful to you dear sister... God bless you too!
  14. How do you know if he/she is the one?

    You're very welcomed Vince! And Amen! I completely agree with your statements. After my experience I'm not sure I believe in soulmates after all. I believe God will speak to us in personal ways as to assure us about our future spouse if it's the right choice or not provided we are searching to be in His will and follow it. You mentioned something spot on, I highly think is important; the "feel at peace" completely regarding the partner. I think it is very important to not have any doubs and if so to bring it before God. I believe God speaks to us through many ways but also the enemy is shrewd and can take advantace of our naive hearts. So dear waiters, please guard your hearts and get a good solid foundation before you throw yourself into a relationship just because there are "signs"... Oh, right now even remembering and writing this makes me feel so stupid. Young love...
