Single woman

A woman in church. Most senior singles struggle with identity crisis, but why should you feel incomplete just because you are not married?

I am a 40-year-old single woman and very lonely. I have grown up in church as a born again Christian. I grew up upholding Christian values of chastity and sexual purity until today. All my friends in youth class hooked up and married each other, but I was left all alone. I have suffered intense loneliness and have to put up with insensitive statements such as, “When is the wedding?” “Stop being so selective” and “What kind of man are you looking for?” I hate it especially when it comes from those same brothers whom I fellowshipped with.
