Single Life By: Erika Scholten What the Church Says Application?
Benefits? Respect Taking Care Finding Yourself The Nature of Things Living the Pure Life Why? Dating & Relationships Myths Single Life and Rejection Preconceived Notions Singleness equals loneliness.The only single people who claim to be lonely are those who choose to be lonely.
A relationship will help me feel better about myself.A relationship is not an insurance policy for happiness, satisfaction, or fulfillment. A relationship will not magically solve or cover up your problems
Accepting singleness is giving up or admitting defeat. Accepting singleness is not a defeat; it’s a victory. “I gave him my heart, and he took and pinched it to death; and flung it back to me. People feel with their hearts, Ellen, and since he has destroyed mine, I have not power to feel for him.”
― Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights
“It's easy to cry when you realize that everyone you love will reject you or die.”
― Chuck Palahniuk
“I really wish I was less of a thinking man and more of a fool not afraid of rejection.”

"Here’s where we as women go wrong. We expect that the perfect guy will fall into our lap if we just wait it out, and when he does then everything will be alright. Our lives will be complete and we’ll live happily ever after – just like the fairy tale says.
This is a myth. It’s not about finding the right person; it’s about becoming the right person."
Living in purity just does not seem practical to most people.
In Matthew 5:28, Jesus says that, “Anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
Society has taken something sacred, designed by God to unite couples in the Sacrament of Marriage and cooperate in bringing new life into the world — and categorized it as just another extracurricular activity.
“I confess to almighty God, and to you my brothers and sisters, that I have greatly sinned, in my thoughts and in my words” The male and female bodies do not make sense by themselves. They only make sense in light of the other. We were made for give ourselves in love to another. We were made for relationship! God created us male and female so that we could be a reflection (an image) of His love by giving ourselves as a sincere gift to each other. “MY BODY REVEALS A CALL TO LOVE LIKE GOD!"He intended that sex be about two things: babies and bonding. When one aspect is removed – that’s not real sex; that’s not what God made it for.
You can’t truthfully and fearlessly say “I give you all of myself, forever.” until you’re committed for life to someone inside the Sacrament of Marriage. Sex was created by God to bond a husband and a wife; spiritually, emotionally and physically. “The more you really love someone, the more you respect them and want what’s best for them. And the more you respect someone, the more you love. Be sure you marry someone that you don’t just find attractive, but whom you really respect.”

If you flaunt yourself like a piece of meat, you can’t expect him to treat you any differently than that. Treat yourself with respect and you’ll demand it from him. Dating is a time of judgment—in high school and college this means learning what qualities you appreciate in the opposite sex.
So “How far is too far?” Learn from the first couple: Adam and Eve. When your desires become more attractive than your partner’s salvation, eventually you’ll fall.
Choose what is best for one another. Choose to respect them, and help them to be the best they can be. In this, you are taking care of each other’s needs. This love is wholly unselfish, and all accounted for. "Being single is smarter than being in the wrong relationship."
"You do not need to be loved, not at the cost of yourself. The single relationship that is truly central and crucial in a life is the relationship to the self. Of all the people you will know in a lifetime, you are the only one you will never lose." - Jo Courdert Rejection sucks... "It feels like there's a new void in your heart that wasn't there before..."
― Calum Bowyer "It makes me

- Eli Moor “Live For Today...Plan For Tomorrow...
Party Tonight..!!!” Single Life is the
PARTY LIFE “At every party there are two kinds of people -- those who want to go home and those who don't. The trouble is, they are usually married to each other.” Why is the single life associated with sex, drugs, and alcohol? People seem to be under the impression that the single life means the 'morally loose' life... That you can do whatever you want if you have no one to answer to... You have to look at yourself
in the mirror and be honest
about the areas of your life that
needed work.
How can you ask a
man to be confident if
you aren't first willing
to be confident?
How do you ask a man to
lead you in holiness if you
are not first willing to
seek holiness?... "Even when finding a great guy seems hopeless and impossible and you feel like nothing is going to ever change for you, hold on to this psalm and put your trust in God’s plan for your life. It is there that you’ll find freedom and peace."

Psalm 130:5: I wait for the LORD, my soul waits and I hope for his word. http://lifeteen.com/wheres-my-prince-charming/

1.Saving sex for marriage keeps you grounded in the reality. Not having sex allows you to see the gifts and faults of the other with clarity, without the bond of a sexual union blurring your judgment. 2.Saving sex for marriage brings creativity to dating. think of new ways to show love and respect. Anyone can give a kiss goodnight, but it takes creativity and respect to write an old-fashioned love-letter, figure out how someone takes their coffee… 3.Saving sex for marriage is the holy and virtuous way to live. In no way is scripture ambiguous about our bodies and sex — plainly stating that we are not to commit adultery or covet our neighbor’s wives (Exodus 20:14, 17). However, we are also encouraged by St. Paul to remember "living a pure life with a pure heart and pure mind is what we were made for." S is for the simple need.
E is for the ecstasy.
X is just to mark the spot,
Because that's the one you really want.(Yes!)
Sex is always the answer, it's never a question,
'Cause the answer's yes, oh the answers (Yes)
Not just a suggestion, if you ask the question,
Then it's always yes. Yeah!
