imagined was that my first sight of her would be in a square profile box on the search results page of an online dating website.In August of 2013, after nine long months, five different sites and maybe 30 first dates, I met Heather.
The "one" she was looking for was in her heart all along. She found a new life in Him, but her dating life was still troubled. “The seemingly shrinking pool of prospects frightened me, which made me even more needy,” she says.
“I dated and then I'd have these dry spells that would go on for years literally. “I couldn't believe that there were any men out there. Still I had no real peace about it.” She couldn’t bring herself to break up with him even though her spirit was not at rest. Audrey was more saddened at the idea of being single again rather than losing her boyfriend.
I'd have a date, then expect too much, give too much and be right back in the hole I was in before. The statistics supported my unbelief.” To help boost her chances at finding true love, Audrey tried Internet dating for a while. She picked up the pieces once again and jumped back into the dating game, but this time, she was determined to do it God’s way.
She met plenty of guys but none of them seemed to work out except for one – the one Audrey calls “Ishmael.” “Everything seemed to be just right except for the gnawing thought in my brain that this wasn't the fit God had in mind,” she explains. “I had given up on ‘illegal sex’ 'cause that had brought me nothing but grief.
God didn't intend for my heart to be hurt again and again but I continued to step outside of God's plan for me.
