The older I get the more I realize that singleness is a gift. The gift that just keeps on giving.
An interview with actor Henry Mark.
Courtship culture taught me that before I could go on a first date with a man, he had to ask my dad for permission to court me for the purpose of wooing me for marriage. That’s too much pressure and putting the cart before the horse. I expected God to deliver “Mr. Right” that way because that’s what happened in courtship books. It didn’t occur to me that God could direct an amazing love story for me in a radically different way.
An unfortunate dating story.
First date: I had come to the realization that there were no single godly men left or at least any I would meet at this point in my life.
