I am 36 years old and have never really had any desire for a deep intimate relationship. I have had three "serious" girlfriends, but nothing ever came of them. It has now been almost 11 years since I even had a date.
I am very content living my life single. I will probably end up as a "Grumpy Old Man" if I don't watch myself and let myself be controlled by God's love and grace.
But my question is this - is my lack of desire for a serious relationship a bad, ungodly thing. I don't even notice women any more. When others say, "Wasn't she good looking?", I say, "Who?"
So what would you say? Do I need counseling or not? I had somebody tell me the other day that it just wasn't right, wasn't normal, for someone to want to be single their entire life. Your opinions are appreciated.
At the Biltmore COC in Asheville, neither our preacher or the youth minister are married. Single isn't synonymous with strange.
