There's this guy I like...

Monday, February 20, 2012

I've liked him for a few years. I finally got a chance to tell him--well, and it took a while to work up the courage. I've always thought he liked me.

After months of observing how we interact (he lives in another town, we don't see each other often) and spending the last few days together I have concluded that he does like me. But not as much as I like him. And not as much as he likes someone else.

Time will tell, I guess. There may or may not be hope for any change in the future.

So here I am, once again, trusting God. Placing my life, my future, my hopes, and my dreams in His hands. I surrender once again my singleness. I surrender my life plan and just beg that he will lead me one step at a time.

God is molding me and it hurts. I just keep praying that He will break me, but that he will not leave me broken.

    Some things I've learned along the way (being childless):

    God gives us certain righteous desires that are not always fulfilled. The fact that this hurts does not mean he loves us any less.

    He know us perfectly and knows what we, as individuals, need most. The circumstances He sends us are his best gift to us. We should embrace them and find the good in them.

    He make take us apart, but He will put us back together better. Hurts like crazy, but it's worth it.

    There was something else and it was good, too -- I think it was muppet-related -- but I couldn't hold on to it long enough to write it down here. Proves the value of rough-drafting.

    Good luck!

    "Paradigm shift" guy here, checking in on this one. Other fish in the sea. Go fishing. The guy you are pining for may also appreciate the beauty in the "one that got away." Either way, you will be better off.

    Hope this helps in the constructive manner intended.

    I hope you don't mind me sharing something with you....

    As painful as it is do not stop putting yourself out there for someone to find the love you have to offer. Give yourself some time and then get back up and start over in the relationship department. I have been where you are with liking someone and them not liking me back in the same way, I understand how much that hurts. About 2 years down the road after a few "quicky" relationships I met the man who would become my husband. Despite the tough road I put him on and tests I put him through for him to prove he was in it for the long haul I gave in and began to trust again. We will be married for 20 years already this September.

    Hang in there..You are worth the time it will take to find someone who deserves you and all the love you have to offer.

    In the mean time, while you are healing, try to focus solely on yourself and feeling better about yourself. Let God help you find where you need to be..He will not leave you broken..just stronger and with some extra wisdom to handle the tough times down the road.
