Why does God keep YOU single?

Not that we can know the mind of God, but let's assume we can at least guess it and know why God keeps some of us here single. What reasons do you suppose for why he is keeping YOU single?

Well because I simply haven't met a girl wonderful enough to be deserving of my love, of course.


Seriously, though. I think the issue for me is twofold: First, I've got some personal issues to walk through a bit, and second, my personality. I feel as though I'm too liberal and iconoclastic to do anything more than irritate a lot of traditional church girls, but I'm too devoted to my calling to traditional pastoral ministry to have much common ground with a lot of the more "unChurch," non-conformist Christian girls, so I end up with a very narrow window of people I can actually have a strong rapport with.

My guess for why God is keeping me single for the time being is that He still has some important things He wants to teach me. I think that one of those things is my lifelong struggle with low self-esteem and insecurities. A good friend of mine recently enlightened me to the fact this may be a major reason why I'm still single and that maybe God is actually protecting me by keeping me single until He finishes working on this with me.

I have had.. plenty of opportunities, but I feel sort of sick when I think of relationships.

Cause loving someone and then letting go, it is inevitable

SO he keeps me single, so that I do not have to endure it again.

I don't know if God is keeping me single or not, I don't spend time around guys so it's partly of my own doing I suppose. I had opportunities recently at college but just wasn't interested (because I could sense things that would cause problems). I think that God wants us to wait in his timing for the right person. I really don't think much about being single or why I am single. I think that God wants to finish His work in my life so that I am ready for the person He sends. But if He wishes for me to stay single, I think I'll be happy either way.

False.

But if that is how YOU feel, then I can't contest your own feelings, can I?

Why assume God is keeping you or anyone else single (unless you're a Calvinist)?

I don't think God is "keeping" me single. I believe I have stood in my own way of relationships and He's merely waiting for me to put my complete trust in Him instead of relying on myself.

I think once I finally say, "Okay God...it's all ours" and not only believe it, but follow it, my life will start changing.

I believe I'm encountering that place in my life so it's just a matter of time before I start seeing and making some changes.
