What is a single girl to do?

OK.  I have a question.  I am in a bit of a dilemma.  That may not be the correct word.  Perhaps quandry?

Last weekend I spent some time with a friend of mine.  He and I have had several discussions on dating and how dishonest women are.  He doesn’t understand why going out for drinks somehow, to the female mind, translates to “Here Comes the Bride” and “Happily Ever After.”  I tried to explain that not all women are like this.  He always looks at me, skeptically, and says, “I know you’re not like this but…”

Here’s my quandry.  I’d like to dive into the dating world.  But, how is a girl supposed to meet someone?  I have a decent job.  I’m a personable person.  I’ll never be Miss America, but I think that I’m a reasonably attractive person.  I’m smart.  I am a hard-worker.  Some might even say I’m funny.  But here I sit, on a Saturday night, on my computer, watching My Big Fat Greek Wedding, blogging.  I’ve tried online dating.  Maybe I didn’t put 100% into it.  And the profiles of the people with whom the 100 points of light were supposedly saying I’d be compatable didn’t interest me at all.  I enjoy going out, but I don’t think that I’m going to meet someone long-term under the influence of alcohol or in a loud environment.  I frequent Barnes & Noble and Starbucks, but perhaps not enough to meet someone.  I’m not darkening the doorstep of a church frequently right now, but I honestly don’t want to meet a church boy.  I’ve not met one in a LONG time that kept his identity or his own personality while serving in the church. 

So, what is a single girl to do?  Any suggestions?

    Dear one, you know the answer to this as well as I do: take it to the Lord in prayer, call forth those things that are not as though they are and STAND! Matthew 16:19 tells us that whatever we bind on earth is bound in heaven and whatever we loose on earth is loosed in heaven. Psalm 119:89 tells us that God’s Word is already established and Mark 11:23 says that Jesus tells us we can have what we say if we say it with faith that comes from our heart. Declare that God has your perfect mate set aside for you and that He will reveal him in the correct time. If someone asks you if you have a boyfriend, instead of saying no, say I believe God has my boyfriend set aside from me and I will meet him in God’s time! Ask God to reveal to you His plan for you and ask Him if there is anything that is hindering you from receiving His blessing. God knows the plans that He has laid for you – plans to prosper you!!!!! Believe it, receive it and stand on it!
    Love you,
    Briggie ^i^
