I'm 21 never dated and it seems like the woman I'm looking for is non-existent, no,makeup, nose rings, bikinis, high heels, colored hair... The woman that used to be that looks like what you would think of in the 1800s... Im a baptist and not a big church baptist not to say that all small churches are scriptural but most are the same thing repackage with "baptist" on the front... I want to wait on the Lord to bring me a wife for life to stick with me through thick and thin who actually means what she agreed to when she says I do and not be nagging and contentious but a Godly submissive wife that will trust and follow...

Moses;

I am way too old for you; but I have been working towards being a Proverbs 31 woman my whole life.  I want to encourage you, because you have encouraged me  with your post.  You are looking for the same thing in a woman that I am in a man.  

I know it seems like no one is out there; but there IS!  You keep your standards as God standards and don't you dare compromise!  God has someone for you and she will come at just the right time...HIS timing.  I feel just as you do..that there is no one out there that is equally yoked to me.  (Or for my kids anymore, with the way the world is going.)  

In the meantime, stay in the word, become the Godly man you want to be for those around you, do things you love, and serve the Lord...and She will come when God ordains it.  (And, of course you can pray for God to bring her to you!)

Keep your faith and trust in the Lord.  He holds the answers to ALL your desires and He is never wrong!  

Trust in God's promises!  He is for you, he wants to give you your heart's desires, and He has a plan for you!  

Proverbs: 16:9
A man's heart plans his way,
But the Lord directs his steps!

Thank you for your post!
R

R. M.
I was 62 and my wife was 26 when we met. We are a perfect match, ... except maybe the chronology thingy. Our ages are the least interesting thing about us. Our 6 kids are way more interesting, and fun.
Might not want to discount someone, over what might be a minor issue.

Be that as it may,
Best of luck to you both.

They weren't around 55 years ago either.

Can I remind everyone that discussion of religion is confined to the cider press area of the forums.

The singles section of Permies inevitably flirts with aspects of a person such as relgion so it is a fine line. Mentions are one thing, but discussions are limited to the Cider Press in order to keep some sense of order as this is a Permaculture site.

This link might give you some answers to what to expect for how this site works.

Yeah. What he said. Totally. Wait. What? Sorry, I was looking at this tiny ad:
