I think that's a charming idea!
I can't imagine why any man would tell a woman that she'll never find someone ... and I don't know why you're 99% sure that they were right.
I must agree with Tom here.
Not to disparage your exes, Kelsey, but real Catholic men would never dream of speaking to a woman like that.
Please do not even give a thought to what they said to you about not finding anyone. The Lord will lead you to your husband when it is time.
I'm with Steve and Tom. Why would you let yourself think that men who say things like that know what they're talking about? Are they all psychologists or something?
My experience is, when people make cruel, blanket statements like that, they are speaking out of anger and jealousy. The only response is, "What do you know?" and move on.
I think that's lovely of you!
Remember that God operates outside of time. He knows who he's got intended for you, even if you don't. Somewhere out there is your future husband. Just stay true to him and fight for that glimmer of hope. Listening to "men" like that won't get you anywhere.
God loves you, and therefore, you're worthy of love.
Keep writing to the-one-you-haven't-met-yet. Pray for him too. He's probably feeling a lot like you are right now.
That being said, I did something [I hope is] brave the other day. I wrote a letter to my future husband. 99% of me is sure that my ex-boyfriends were all right in saying that I would never find anyone; but there's this 1% glimmer of hope in me that thinks God wouldn't have led me to this point without having someone in mind who can help me fight my way to Christ. I won't post it here, for obvious reasons, but it basically says that I'm not giving up on him - I know that when we're ready, God will lead us to find each other.
Am I ridiculously sappy? Is this creepy?
