• Rich

    This was one of the few posts that actually made me smile. You’re still so young, you have your entire life ahead of you. Don’t be discouraged at all that you have standards that most people around you do not measure up to. That just makes the man that does live up to and exceed your expectations all the more better. Focus on you, focus on school. Don’t focus on those who don’t meet your expectations if that’s what you want. And certainly don’t focus on those who think you’re gay because you haven’t found anyone yet. Don’t even focus on your family or mom. You do you, and with the Lord’s help, everything else will fall into place.

    I relate to you so much!! Every single thing you said is spot on with how I live my life and view dating, and I am a senior in high school. I actually gave into the pressure of dating last summer and I went out with this guy who I realized sort of late that I was not attracted to at all. It was not a good experience for me but it really taught me that I need to just wait. Focus on myself for a while. I’ve often worried that I might end up alone but I dismiss that as a silly thought. Things come in time, and even though I too probably set my expectations too high, you just have to have hope.
