Thread: Only dating one person your entire life and having them be your life partner

    Default Only dating one person your entire life and having them be your life partner

    I've always prayed that God would send me the right person and that would be the one that I would marry. I know that it might not be possible, but I've also prayed that he's never dated anyone either. I would like to know what everyone thinks on this subject. Do you think it's possible and do you think it's strange that I'm thinking that way? Does anyone else pray this too?

    Hi Emily ..... I read recently about Josh and Anna Duggar doing just that. Google their names and you'll find their story....quite inspiring....

    It's possible but I wouldn't get my hopes up if I were you.

    I am putting my faith in God and trusting that God will work it out. I know that it might not happen but I'm going to keep praying and putting my trust in God. With Him all things are possible

    I'm thankful that I've been through bad relationships, it's taught me how to be when I do find the right one. There is no better way to learn than experience. Alot of times people come into a relationship being totally naive because they've never been in one before. Major downsides to it.

    well that may be true but if God has it planned where two people who have never dated before fall in love then it will work out if it's His will. You can't put limits on God.

    No, but sometimes people place demands on God outside of His will. It works both ways. We want God to cater to all of our selfish desires. Dating a guy who's dated is no sin. I wouldn't make your conviction a hill to die on, because you may end up deeply disappointed.

    No I'm not saying it's a sin at all. I'm saying that's my prayer but if it doesn't work out and God has other plans that's fine

    The chances of someone not dating anyone decreases with age though.

    But you could increase your chances by visiting places that single men who have never dated frequent like Bingo halls etc.

    The way I see it, you better get married pretty young and expect a rough start, since your partner won't have dated anyone before. I don't know, I think dating is a healthy outlet, and allows a person to grow and mature.

    One of my popular favorites is moose calling camp, There are TONS of men there who have never dated before, If you visit you can find a man AND learn the latest moose calls, basically its a win win situation for you.

    Talking Re: Only dating one person your entire life and having them be your life partner

    I'm just wondering if the moose calling also works for calling women or men not just moose ?

    Perhaps moose calling could be a special form of communication between the couple to deepen and strengthen the relationship.

    lol

    I would like to think of moose calling as an art form really, So perhaps if done correctely it could become the greatest form of communication between men and women. In two years i believe everyone will be doing it.

    I think its really great if you can accomplish that. The less emotional baggage you have, the better. I think if more people prayed that way, there would be less bad relationships. Think about it.... if every Christian young person prayed that God would send them their spouse and that they would be willing to wait, they would be a lot less likely to jump into relationships everywhere with everyone! Anyways... I hope God answers your prayer and blesses you

    You can also find single men who have never dated at Star Wars, Star Trek, or comic book conventions.
