I hear you. I am in my 40's and have never found the right guy. I refuse to lower my standards ever again. I have lowered them in the past out of loneliness. That never works out. It just made me very unhappy and bitter. If a man can not go to work then they are not a real man. I realize the economy is not good right now and people are out of work,but you can tell the type. If they had good work ethics they would take whatever they could get and do it with pride,knowing that better times are coming. I go to work everyday and rarely work less than 10 hours a day. The only men I meet at my job are nearing the end of their lives. I have completely given up so when I say I am still looking that is actually a lie. GOOD LUCK TO YOU! I hope you find Mr.right before it is too late for you too.
I totally hear you and I'm pretty much in the same boat. I'm not focused strickly on the physical aspect of things, but they are important. A man should be a hard worker, but that quality is becoming more and more rare. You are absolutely right though. Hope is all we have I guess. I will not allow for myself to lower my standards either. You are definitely a strong woman, God bless you for that :).

What about church?
Great question! Church is a great place, but people tend to limit themselves to a denomination, tradition, etc. Jesus said in doing so is a spiritual death. Formalized religion is a man made invention. Jesus said in the Book of Thomas that a fisherman went fishing and he caught a great number of fish. He went through the fish and kept the large one (Jesus) and threw the little ones back (traditions and denominations). He was wise for doing so.

A Christian is to have a personal relationship with the Lord and only then will we find the Kingdom of God within us. We do not NEED church and tradition, but people embrace it.

Once the female (physical) and male (spiritual) become one, and you have 2 ears to listen (pyhsical and spiritual), the truth will be revealed. An individual is expected not to be male nor female. If you are one you will not find the Kingdom of God.

Church is just the physical aspect of our faith. With both aspects, including the personal relationship with the Lord (spiritual), you become a child of the Father. Most church going Christians are not spiritual and they are corpses dead in the world (physical).

So I may find a child of the Father in church, but not everyone in church is a child of the Father.

The Book of Thomas was banned from the canon. The Roman Emperor Constantine had a vision of the cross before battle. He was told if he wore the cross he would win. He won and became a Christian. He gathered the leaders of the church, all seperate, and they formed an organized Christian religion under Rome which gave him authority. This book was not included because it states a Christian does not need an established church. That would have taken power from him. The Roman Catholic Church has formed from this creation of Constantine. The Protestant faiths based their interpretations off of their formally agreed upon Bible. There are close to 50 books which were banned from the Bible due to the church wanting to maintain control of the people. They are focused on the physical church, not the spiritual aspect of our faith. The Lord said it would happen too..

Personally, I don't find anyone who is so focused on God and religion attractive at all. It shows a mental weakness.

I understand how you feel and don't take offense to it at all. You are definitely the majority in the world nowadays. The Book of Mathew said that would become the world's view. Believe it or not, its a struggle to embrace the Lord, I get harassed for it every day. What I'm looking for is very rare in deed :).

I am so sorry and I am sending you the biggest hug ever! I use to feel the same way and most people do. There is a reason for this. Before you consider giving up I would like to share something with you. If I can prove that Christianity is real would you give the Lord a chance? Its a fairly simple step by step thing you can do online :).

I have found a peace within myself that words cannot discribe even though I was once, regretfully, a Jesus hater myself. Consider this, peace is only found through the Lord. Obviously you have not found it through the world so why not give this a shot? I love you sister, please don't doubt that. Additionally, the Lord loves you unconditionally and its a love that cannot be described. Give the Lord a chance :).

Peace to you my sister and hopefully I hear back from you soon.

"Let him who has an ear hear" :)

Hugs!

True.

I just wish men could be more open about what they want instead of assuming we are mind readers. Communication is vital for any relationship to work. If everything is left to assumptions no one will be happy.

Even with great communication though, some things just won't work.
