Hello!
My name is Kelly and I am doing my student teaching this semester and will graduate with my BS in education on May 20, 2012!!! I am really looking forward to losing weight so I can start my new life differently. I want to be healthy... and I would not mind attracting a nice christian fellow my way.

God provided me unexpectedly with a wonderful husband, unfortunately he passed away two years ago. I'm missing my friend and companion. I desire for God to provide another.

Hi all...

Having one of those days that I occasionally get where I really struggle with being single. Spent my whole life being single. Used to think, if I lost weight, dating would actually happen... hmmm. I just feel like if someone would tell me what I am doing wrong or whatnot, then I could correct it and make myself more dateworthy. Rough day...just looking for ideas on how you deal with the rough days. emoticon

Well, i am 18 years old, and one of those Sweet Sixteen, Never Been Kissed kinda girls. I've never been on a date. I had a "boyfriend" once when i was 15, but he was five years older than me, so we were mostly just talk. He came to church with me and that was the extent of our dating. Haha. I don't just date for fun, for something to do on Friday night. I'm really sserious about it. It seems like every time i meet a new guy i'm like "oooo, maybeeee he's the one" and i'll be head over heels for him, weighing everything, seeing if he matches up to what i want and need in a man.... then.... i get bored with him =P never fails!

Basically, my dating life is waiting for God to show me a guy that is perfect for me (despite what i think perfect is), that God knows is perfect for me and just who i need. And that i won't get tired of in a month or so. One of my rules is i will never date someone until we've been friends for at least six months first. That way you just get to know each other with no pressure and if i get tired of them before tthere are no hard feelings or break ups to go through. BUT i'm a hopeless romantic so that's hard sometimes.

Shoot yes I am single and looking! Like I say in my profile, I am actually newly single and trying to lose weight, to build up my self esteem to start dating again. I would be so giddy if I met someone using Sparkpeople, starts with teamwork ;)

Hi everyone! Im divorced my marriage lasted 5yrs and the best thing that came out of it was my son! I had a controlling husband that loved to cheat on me n didnt want me to have friends or stay in contact with fmly! Even after my divorce he still tried to control my life! If i was dating someone he would try his best to break us up! I finally got over him and had a bad relationship that totally messed up my life! I lost everything cause he got addicted to drugs and I tried to help him but almost drowned myself!! I am a lot stronger n wiser now! I've come a long way and am ready to test the water again! I'm hoping the 3rd times a charm!

JSUGIRL25, Yes, if you desire to find a mate, single life can be very frustrating. I haven't had a date in over 10 years. Very sad, I know. :) Anyway, until recently I haven't really wanted a relationship. I was quite happy with my freedom in my singlehood & really didn't care if I ever married or not. I would occasionally get a bit lonely & wish I had that closeness but that would soon pass. However, about 4 months or so ago, I started really desiring to find a husband, even more bizaar is my great attraction to the idea of the possiblity of maybe being a stay-at-home wife/mother (very unlike me). I'm not sure if God is preparing me for something or if I'm just getting a bit broody from seeing my sister getting engaged & about to be married & so many of my friends getting married & having children.

So, yes, I agree, single life can be quite frustrating. When I do find a guy I'm somewhat into, he usually isn't into me (or at least I assume that) & the only ones who do act interested in me are definitely not the ones I would care to spend much time with. I had a 50+ yr old patient (I work in an ER x-ray on the night shift) the other night that tried to give me his number. When I said no thanks, he was completely dumbfounded by the idea. I'm not sure what it is I am exuding but I don't think it is right. Hehe. :)

Good luck & keep praying. emoticon

Hello everyone,
I am slightly new to this forum so bear with me! I am a 25 year old college student and I cant seem to keep a man to save my life! My friends all are getting married and I am the only who dates and dates and dates. Lately, I tried the long distance relationship thing with my best friends FiancÚ's brother. Yeah..that didn't work out and you could imagine for various reasons. Mostly bias opinions and unrealistic ideas of him being the one and whisking me away...I can be so dreamy! Anyway, I have decided to put dating on a halt to get my life in order. I understand that I am young and as my family says "I have plenty of time to find a soul mate," but what happens when I'm 30, 40, 50, etc..will they still say that to me then? Just tired of that being an excuse. I have graduated from college, I am almost done with grad school, and all I the only companionship that is relevant in my life is my relationship with my Stewie (puppy). What do you guys think? I hate dating...omg that is my pet peeve!!! So many crazy people out here. Am I being a bit dramatic or is this singles life frustrating?

I'd say go for it. This coming from a girl that attracts lousers. However, you never know what is going to happen until you try. If he has a problem with your weight then he will find something else wrong. Be confident. You are who you are.

Myself, I am just sick of guys wanting one thing and you want another. When and if I go out on another date I want it on my terms. He pays for him I pay for me. So I don't expect him thinking that he can get me a possition that I don't want to be in.

The joy of being, which is the only true happiness, cannot come to you through any form possession, achievement, person

or

even-through anything that happens. That joy cannot 'Come'

to you

ever. It emantes from the formless dimention 'Within You',

from

consciouness itself and thus is one with who you are.

Love and peace,
Mary

Geeze, Mechjell, that is total crap. Sounds like life is much less complicated without him. :) Look at it this way, your odds just got better in finding your one. He's one guy you no longer have to worry about.

Dating wise I have pretty much no advice in that area. I haven't been on a date in over 10 years & even then I have only "dated" 1 guy in my life & that was just a little high school romance...heck...I wouldn't even call it much of a "romance." A friend of mine is planning on setting me up with her fiance's roommate. I've had a "no blind dates" policy but I think after 10 years it is time to take a chance. I do have two guys I am interested in. One has some personal issues that I really don't think I want to take on, not to mention he is WAY out of my league. The other is about 4 or 5 years younger than me. Which, is not a problem for me, I tend to go for the younger guys. He is quite a bit thinner than me, so, I of course, figure he would never think of me in "that way" because of it. Darn this low self-esteem. Hehe. :P

I tell ya. I am giving up on dating. Oh my gosh. I don't know how I attract the men I do. My last date, not so long ago. He told me that I can be his friend only if I was willing to come with "bennifits". Err...that kind of thing is driving me nuts.

Girl let me tell you I don't have his number, my friend set this all up. Now she is mad at him and tells me he is just a butt. I'm not going to sweat it too much. If its meant to be then it will be. Any luck with your dating life?

Thank you for the compliment. I know I can do better. I just have to look harder or not even at all. Do you have his phone number? If you do, call him yourself. Be the perwson in charge sort of speak. Some guys like that. Some guys like the woman to be aggressor.

Hi there, just let me tell you mechjell, I think you are so much better off without him. He sounds like a total jerk. I think both of you will someone and whoever ends up with you will be the luckiest guys on the planet. We will find happiness cause God wants his children to be happy. It may not be how we want, but it will come. Hang in there and know that I am rooting for you.
As for me, I had two dates on New Year's Day. One I don't really count as a date. It was a guy that is a friend from high school. We went shopping and out to eat. It was fun. Now for the night date I had a blast. He took me out for Chinese, took me to a movie, and then we had a moonlit stroll. I felt so special. He seemed to have a good time too, but the only problem is he hasn't called me. I am in suspense. I would like to go out with him again, but if not at least I had one good date. I will keep you posted. Have a great rest of the week.

No, I had no idea he was married. He is jerk. I can't believe I liked him. Well, you know, its his loss. I want to be happy. I want you to be happy aswell. I've learned that true happiness comes from within. If someday doesn't like you for who you are. Screw them. They are not worth your time.

He doesn't mind "FAT" girls!??! Are you kidding me? Of course I'd be offended!

Did you not have any idea he was married when you went on your date? He sounds like a royal jerk! You can definitely do better!!

I got a flirt from singlesnet. The guy's name was BBWLVR. I wasn't flattered either. My plan is to not fit into that category by summer time. So there! LOL!

The last date I went on was Sept 27, 08. It went great we talked about everything under the sun. We seem to have many things in common. Well, one thing led to another and we started making out. He wanted to take it deeper then just kissing. I said no. then all of the sudden he started crying. He said in 23 years he has never cheated on his wife. I was shocked. Speechless really. Infact that was the last I heard from him.

Then later while the date was pretty much ending. He told me that I have a great personality and that if he wasn't married, he'd go after me. then he added, he doesn't mind fat girls. He loves girls with cushion. Should I have been offened. I really didn't know what to say but have a good night.

That was my first date in 20 years. He was probably the best guy to go out with for the first time. No pressure kinda guy, you know?

Okay. We all joined this group for pretty much the same reason, right? We are single, looking, and hoping to lose weight for confidence? IS that the reason you guys joined too?

Is it helping?

Write and tell us if you've had a date and how it went.

I had one. He was a nice guy, but we really don't have much in common. He made a crack about the cowboy and the city girl. He was laughing, but he was right. We are sooo different. We may do something again sometime, but I doubt if either would be upset if we don't. How about you guys?
