You don’t know how much freedom and fresh air you have until you get into a relationship.
Being single, helps you discover yourself to a large extent and that’s why it’s not advisable to rush into relationships.
The way you spend your time as a single, determines the kind of relationship you end up in.
Your single life is the only time you have you all to yourself
Believe you me, the moment you get into a relationship (not even marriage), you loose a great part of your alone time, some things will suffer.
The time to actually find yourself is when you’re single. Please don’t go in search for a partner when you haven’t found you.
While you’re still single, is the time to actually press in for more. Search for God.
In his book waiting and dating, Dr Myles Munroe said
Being alone as a single person has many advantages, especially for a believer. One of the greatest of these is the opportunity to give undivided attention to the pursuit of spiritual growth and a deep relationship with the Lord.
The time you are most prepared for dating is when you don’t need anyone to complete you, fulfill you, or instill in you a sense of worth or purpose. You are ready to date when you have first learned how to be single. Learn how to be alone.
Contentment with being alone involves learning how to be fulfilled in your singleness. A truly single person is one who is complete physically, emotionally, spiritually, and intellectually without dependence upon anyone else. Successful singles find their personal identity and sense of wholeness within themselves and in relationship with God. Because they are complete within themselves, only whole individuals are fully comfortable being alone. They can thrive and prosper whether or not they are involved in a relationship. For such people a relationship is an added blessing; it is icing on the cake.
Be complete in God and in yourself first
Do what you have to do, read as much books as you can, pray as long as you want, reach out to as many people as you can (when you get a partner, there are certain people you won’t be able to reach out to, fully. You’ll be restricted).
Spend time with God.
If you spend your single life with Him, He won’t let you fall into wrong hands.
The best place to find a godly person is on the road to God’s Kingdom.
The best place to find the right person is on the road to fulfilling your purpose.
To the singles, please do what is needful while you still have you.
