Today I thought I’d talk about being single as a teen girl.
Most girls our age are either in a relationship or would really like to be in one.
I am currently not in a relationship and I am totally okay with that! But if I had talked with you about this in December/January, I would not tell you that.
Over the past few months I came to realize that I am NOT ready for a relationship.
See, the way I look at it is that I’m not ready to get married anytime soon. So why start a relationship this young? And I know that lots of people have different opinions.
But I don’t want to get myself into a relationship when I’m still in high school and trying to figure out what I’m going to do with my life.
Not gonna lie. Every once in a while I will get the lonely feeling that I want to be in a relationship. Because it is nice to have someone there to talk to all the time and know you have someone. But, that shouldn’t be your reason for dating. You should be dating the person because they could be a possible spouse.
Whenever I get that feeling and I know I’m not ready, I go to the Lord and ask him to take the feeling away. And it goes away and I’m totally fine!
Another thing, I was in a “relationship” at the beginning of the year and I realized I wasn’t ready and also that I wasn’t interested anymore. That’s something important we girls need to realize.
If we can tell we aren’t interested anymore, we can’t keep it going just because you don’t want to hurt his feelings. If you keep it going, you’re going to lead the guy on and he’ll get even more hurt.
The media makes it seem like we should all have a boyfriend. But you shouldn’t start dating till you know you’re ready, which is God’s timing.
If you are in the single stage and are really wanting a boyfriend, I would encourage you to really take this time to spend more time with your family and with God. He wants you to come to him and wants to comfort you. Because he’s in control. He’s not wringing his hands because you don’t have a boyfriend. It is all HIS timing. He’s not worried.
Well, I hope that helps you if you are in the same stage as I am.
Are there any other things you’d like me to write about? Anything you’d like to hear about? Let me know in the comments!
