5 Ways To Make The Most OF Your Christian Singleness
FOCUS ON YOUR FUTURE:
When you’re single, you get to focus on your future, not your future with your boyfriend or girlfriend.
It’s so easy to deprioritize the things most important to you for the sake of someone else.
When you are in a relationship, your long-term goals may completely change. The advantage of being single is having no one to distract you from your personal goals.
You can determine what your life goals are and focus on how to get there. You won’t have anybody holding you back.
YOU’RE YOUR OWN BOSS:
Usually, when in a relationship, most big decisions are made jointly. When single, there’s no need to compromise with your boyfriend or girlfriend.
No decisions will be made that will result in any big fights. Basically, you don’t need anyone else’s input.
You decide what you do, there are no restrictions. You can officially do whatever you want…within reason. Embrace the freedom you have being a single Christian woman or single Christian man.
WORK ON YOURSELF:
Relationships can be stressful. There will be times when you fight, miscommunicate, or don’t see eye to eye.
I think this is something that most people forget when they are feeling lonely over not being in a relationship. When you’re single, you don’t have that extra burden weighing you down.
You can use that time to seriously work on yourself and discover what genuinely fulfills you and makes you happy.
Sometimes, people search for happiness in relationships or use relationships to fill some void and make them whole.
There is nothing healthy about that at all. I would say that you must discover self-fulfillment and self-meaning before you enter into a relationship.
How could you expect someone to get to know you intimately if you don’t know yourself in that way? Being a single Christian woman or single Christian man is the perfect adventure to find fulfillment.

Dates can help you figure out the kind of person you want to date and the way you want to date when you find someone to possibly have a more serious relationship with.
