    I am having a problem. I am only 16 and yet one of the things i want most is to just find someone to be with, and not like a fling a relationship, i mean I already want to find the person that I want to be with. Its just something I want so very badly, and the thought of knowing I will have to wait so long weighs heavily on my heart. I dont know what to do. Should I just ignore it, does anyone else have this problem, any scriptures that might help?

    You're 16. Live a little before you even think of settling down.

    If you really want to settle down, think it over a little bit more because reality isn't some simulation where you use people for your entertainment. I'm 16 too and I am capable of handling relationships, its just that everybody I date changes their minds in the process because they're simple minded people in the end, so take love seriously because romance is serious business.

    shunning the thoughts would be the best course of action in my opinion. having close friends(not friends, but close friends) helps alot as well. you might try following the advise of the messiah aswell.

    Mt 6:34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

    finding the one I believe you can find that person in any age.. but you gotta watch guys love to play with your heart sometimes.. well they will if you dont find the right one

    if your hearts in it and you been dwelling on this though I always learned not to look for a boyfriend let them come after you.. because you always end up looking in the wrong places

    It's natural and God has put those feelings inside of you to find that woman, why shun those feelings where it's there for a reason. Act on it? No, you are young as I. We have a whole life ahead of us so don't focus to much on it now, even though it might seem crazy not to. I say focus on school, that is most important at this age, get a good job and then start thinking about finding that special person because God is a God of order and at the very beginning of time we sinned so men has to work or he cant eat. So work is very important and to get good work you need education, so those things need to be priority. Never know, along the way you probably will find her, that's how it works most of the time!

    So recap, don't focus to much on it now, but never shun that emotion. It's natural way God has wired our brains to find>seek>replenish the earth Lolz!

    PM anytime, if you have any questions or just wanna talk. I check back here once or twice a day.

    Story of my life. It's been a battle with me. I don't want a boyfriend due to lust, or loneliness. I just want a real relationship, where we are both chasing after God, and becoming stronger in Him and each other through the process. I prayed about it so much, and I still do. I'm sorry I'm not much help, haha.

    We will always long for that person God has planned for us, that is natural. But we just have to be patient, it will come in time. I know exactly how you feel too. And well, having patience is a tough thing. But you just need to focus on other things righ tnow, at this stage in our lives, serious relationships shouldn't be our focus. I learned that myself the hard way.

    I think the better thing to do is shun those feelings because why pay them any attention if you will not act on them? I find pursuing a relationship or even wanting one takes your mind off more important matters.

    The mark of a true young man! :D you are just wanting what real men want, something LASTING and meaningful. You must pray that the lord will guide you to her, and keep dreaming of her (eventually you will). I have no doubt before long you will have that meaningful relationship you crave.
    Keep your faith, and your mentality. most guys your age are only focused on one thing, and yet you see the world for its true colors.
