Hello everyone,
I am a single woman who is twice divorced. I have dated before & after marriage & have discovered that I had a co-dependent personality. I through all of that now I seem to be on a never ending road of recovery. That's okay however I have found myself being very reclusive. I have dropped the one person that was a friend simply because I got tired of hearing the same old sob story over & over again. Each time I would offer her some advice she would say "I know you'/re right, but...". She was the one who was instrumental in steering me to seeking counseling for my problems yet she would not heed the advice of her own counselor. I got tired of going out with her, getting drunk while she would literally sit & cry the whole time about why her Dr. boyfriend dumped her. She still doesen't think it was all about sex & that he thought he was better than her.
I go to church & that's it. I am so afraid of having to start a new relationship. What is this all aboujt. I want a christian man. That is so limiting I know but that's what I want...being lonely iss no fun!!!

I do know what you mean. I filed for divorce last year but it still is not final. We have been seperated a year and 1/2. I have been alone this entire time. I have my kids, but I want the fairy tale too. Maybe not the fairy tale but at least someone to come home to at night and talk with about my day. KSUE

HOOTIEHOO,

GOD HAS THE RIGHT MAN FOR YOU. and he will appear in God's time, not yours. Wouldn't ift be nice if we could ask and God would deliver in OUR time!!!

You are on the right road. Take comfort in that. Being alone is hard But waiting for the right one and in the right way is important too.
Good Luck

Thanks everyone! It feels so good to talk to someone & not feel stupid.
I don't mind the waiting, I just don't want to make the same mistake as the past. I also don't want to be so afraid that I let the person get away.

If it the relationship God has in mind for you there will be no "getting away". Of course...you still have to do your part and be Gos's person.

The Bible promises us all kinds of great things if we surrender to God and his son but...don't we always think we can do better.

Remember the Bible also says..."this to shall pass" and "Fear Not"

Good Luck
