Is it normal that I am _____ years old, and never dated?
“Normal” is subjective.
1) Never dated.
2) Haven’t dated in ten years.
3) Your only date consisted of your cousin being forced to take you to your senior prom in your Uncle Fred’s mint Toyota Tercel.
It’s normal to feel not normal. Especially when what we long for seems to be magnified in everyone else’s life. When you desire to be in relationship, EVERYONE is in relationship.
Even the mail man.
You don’t know for certain, but when he delivers your Arby coupons and heating bill he just seems to have that “I finally met Nancy in Apt. 34 and we are SO in love” look.
You are jealous of the mail man. You feel not normal.
Don’t put yourself in a box of “un-normal” based on what you percieve as “normal”.
Sure, your scratch and sniff sticker collection might be odd to some possible dates, but God made you in His image. He is delighted by you and your love of hologram stickers.
If you are frustrated with your dating streak and want to make a change, ask yourself some honest questions. Try to get a healthy gauge of why you are in this spot by discussing it with people who know you.
And pray. (I don’t say that lightly or tritely.)
What are some questions you would ask someone who is wanting to assess why they haven’t dated in awhile…or ever? Do you think they are not normal?
