Maybe one. Never defined it though. Ended up sleeping in my landlady's bed, and did so for about 10 years. Not shared economy. Celebrated christmas once. Did not raise her kids, but did play with her youngest, and walked the dog with her, and drove her places. Spent most evenings watching movies with the woman, and had dinner together. But technically just a tenant.

Oh my God.
I'm sorry life has been less than kind to you. I think we all have had painful periods and episodes, but for some it seems to be a lifestyle, even in the grand ol' US of A.

But... I've never been a "lady killer". Had about 4 single dates with 4 separate women before I met the woman who'd become my late wife. We were together from 1998 to 2009.

Since then, women have avoided me like the plague. Not that I'm so sexy, but I think part of this is Divine. But, that's another conversation.

About 22 months after my wife passed, Feb. 2011, I decided I was ready to pursue a new wife, went on three dates with this one Christian woman. After that third date, she decided my 5'6" was too short for her 5'3" when she wanted to wear her heels. Being taller than I was a dating issue for her. And, that was the last bonafide date I've had since.

I had one sinful involvement about 5 1/2 years ago. God walloped me for that. Haven't 'been with' anyone since, and haven't dated anyone in more than 10 years.
Oh my God, this is scary! I'm new here and wondering how your experience??? God does indeed cane. I have had a similar experience 😂

Oh
It does seem sometimes that meeting Christian women is next to impossible.

I'm often told 'seek your next wife in the fellowship of your church, brother", but it's hard to do that when the single women are 37 years my junior or 15-20 years my senior, and most are married anyway.

Datings sites SUCK. Amazing to me how the nice Christian ladies on those sites do not even answer your greetings -- because why should they if they're not interested? Funny, I do that because the woman took the time to reach out and express an interest in me, even though that interest was not reciprocated.

If it's going to happen, I'm not sure how or when it will. Otherwise, I really wish God would just give me the gift of celibacy. I miss the closeness, I miss sex, I miss all of it.
oh oh! God will grant the desires of your heart Bro! He knows what's the best time, keep running 👍

You have my sympathies. Trying to trust God.

He will not necessarily grant all of them. Nowhere does he promise everyone a great companion.

But... thanks for attempting to be encouraging. I hope you meet that special someone soon enough.
