i was fortunate enough to go to a wedding this weekend. i enjoy the occasional wedding, what makes them enjoyable is seeing friends experience the joy that comes with those first moments of marriage, but at the same time its always a stinging reminder that i am still very single.

its not a bad thing that i am still single, atleast according to the apostle paul. for the longest time having a girlfriend just wasnt that important to me, not to say i didnt like girls, but just not a priority. looking back i think it was a good thing. not sure if i was in the right place with God to have added something that would have taken greater importance. i know i am in a better place now but it feels like the time is slowly passing me by. many questions haunt me.

someone once told me i would only date someone that had the same background as me (baptist, conservative, etc.). i dont think that is necessarily true but what is most important (putting God first) may lead to someone who does share my background to a certain extent. what has been gnawing at me, where to draw the line. it seems so cold/judgemental to disregard someone based on what their priorities are. do i give someone the benefit of the doubt and hope that God does have priority in their life,even if it doenst appear to be there? and if i do and i am wrong, what will the damage be if i dump someone because "i dont think you are a good enough Christian"(obviously not what i would say but what would be taken from the conversation). more importantly, do the priorities in my life reflect the place i want God to have that would make me as attractive as what i am looking for in someone?

not only do i have to answer those questions but i have to try and understand what women really mean from their actions and words. dont even know where to start on that one. not enough brain power.

What if it was a girl from Mexico who just wanted to hold your hand with no questions asked?
