Am i dating a misogynist
I desired their attention and affection more than anything. If a girl was willing to pay attention to me, then I didn’t feel so alone or worthless.
I was nice to every girl I met and expected the same in return.
And she did this through Facebook Messenger, which didn’t make it any better. I’ve been through this before and it wasn’t like we’re dating, to begin with.
I wouldn’t mind taking a back seat and supporting her from afar.
Maybe I could have been more upfront with my feelings for her and risk rejection for peace of mind.
To me, it seemed like it was a sign from God to continue investing in her.
I write this with a heavy heart and conflicted mind. Rather, just pray more and hope that your future spouse comes in the form of a miracle. If nothing ever happens, then find contentment in singleness. Reluctantly, I followed the status quo out of respect for the church and devotion to God.
For the past year, I’ve been wrestling with my feelings towards women in the church. Well, prying looks and well-meaning but ultimately pointless advice follows. I repressed my desire for relationship and marriage and struggled to find contentment in platonic female friendships that I had.
Last year, I came to grips with this reality when I had to go through a certain situation with a close female friend of mine.
Despite our closeness, she decided to push me aside in order to focus more on a guy she was interested in being with.
But in this situation, my initial reaction was hostility.
