There are just too many immature guys even Christians. Plus,  they are looking for a trophy not a wife. So go search in a haystack in the dark room forever. Lol ????
 

There are good and bad in both sexes.

People think being single is the worst thing. It's not. Being married to a bad spouse is the worst. Consider yourself blessed! Look on the bright side. Improve. The women will come.

But then again which 26 year old lady is really interested in a 26 year old video game playing, cartoon watching, magic playing boyfriend?
Religion aside, if my daughter would come home with a grown up boyfriend who spends his time this way and on top of that keeps himself busy with sci-fi science, string theory and parallel universes...I think I will scratch my head a few times.

I know a man who works in the Salvation army who recently had a much younger woman take interest in him. He makes very little money, and she was trying to coax him into leaving that position and pursuing a high-paying career--earlier in his life, he had a very upper-middle-class income. He's a REALLY good, godly man who now believes in serving the Lord in what he does, but the woman would not settle for him doing what he does for a minimal income. He had an awesome response: that he would not allow his value to be held hostage by his bank account. So yeah, that woman will be single for good while longer, and she's almost 30!

Proverbs 6:26--For by way of the prostitute a man is brought to a loaf of bread.

I also recently saw this comment from a different single man that I thought was so amazing that I saved it:

Quote
Thank you, thank you, thank you! So many Christian women have based my worth on what career I have and on how much money I have. I hear so many Christian women saying "I'm looking for my Boaz," which is really just a nice Christian way of saying "I want to marry a man for his money." And they claim that there are no available men in the church today. For years, I have pleaded with God for a good career opportunity so that I can be worth something to a woman. But I've realized that my worth is in Christ, not in a career. Christian women may shun me because I don't fit their idea of "God's best," but I know I am worth a lot to Jesus. And the way I see it, if a woman doesn't want to be there with me during my failures and struggles, then she doesn't deserve to be there with me during my success.

Praise GOD that more and more men are figuring out how to shut this door through which Satan tries to rob them of knowledge of their worth in Christ!!!! Wow!

But let's be practical. Money is essential in raising a family. I always believe you can be in a ministry and work at the same time. In fact, you're helping much on that coz you provide for the church thru your givings.

dothackzero, Think of it as your being saved n protected for the right woman.
I'm pretty sure there are very few people who are really single forever!
You cant hurry love, u'll just have to wait, theres someone for everyone.
Love has a way of seeking up on you when u least expect it.
Work on yourself 1st, love and family will come in time. O! and pray about it!
Peace and Love bro!

Lol this is very ideal. I think you are not exposed to people who are alone for the rest of their lives. I think you don't understand that "Valley".
There's someone for everyone?!?!?!?!?!?!  Please look further around. In every corner you will see peopl alone or single.

People hastily those lines carelessly giving false hopes to people. Reality is not everyone is bound to get married. Not all who prays, work on itself or whatever finds love and have a family. That's a very wrong notion in my honest opinion. I believe it's time we open our eyes to the reality that marriage is not for all whether you ask God or not. Not all prayers are provided/answered. Remember there is no on those answers.

A very true answer as I have never been blessed to have found a spouse.

Been looking and praying for around 50 years now.

It is not going to happen for me... and it won't for a lot of others.

I am resigned to the fact... I have been since I was in my 40s.

better to be single than married to a horrible spouse.

You could also look abroad like the phillipines or someplace like that. There may be a community within the country you are in . Get connected and show them that you are a good deal. Why not ? Give all options a go but find out what race , country is loyal and commits to marriage, because we are living in a fast food, fast love society that consumes and discards at a alarming pace.

That's the sort of thing men do, shop for brides elsewhere, its not usually what women do, and for us the most important thing is that we marry a Christian.

This is sad!! Is the Philippines where you can buy a bride or spouse???? 
Or maybe you need to clarify why the Philippines??
