Hello friends. I am a single and childfree 36 year old woman. Some people that I have met think my lifestyle is a bit strange but I am happy. I believe that God has a purpose for me as a single woman. I don't see a reason for me to be embarrassed or ashamed of my life. Is anyone else here a life long single?

I have come to terms with the fact that I will never be married, there was a time I found this fact distressing or depressing or whatnot, but that time has long passed, today, I now find this knowledge liberating. The way I look at it, everyone else's life is about marriage and family, and searching for a mate and whatnot, but my life can be about something else. The story of my life is at most only about half written, and I am the author and I can write whatever I like.

I am 45 and never married, despite years of involvement with Catholic Alumni Club and Catholic Match. I haven't given up hope of getting married, but I suspect it's unlikely I'll ever father my own children. I wouldn't be opposed to marrying a woman who already has children (presuming, of course, she's free to marry in the Church).

I'm 62 and never married. It was always what I wanted, but I seemed to attract the wrong kind of guy.

I didn't reach your outlook until I was 50. I would say that while I'm not happy about how life turned out, I will say that I'm content. There are definite benefits to being single.

Thank you friends for letting me know that I am not alone. I meet so many people in their 20s that are getting married that look at me like I have three heads for never marrying. It's too bad they are so judgemental of single people

Don't worry, I believe God have a purpose for everyone. Everyone is different. I know I was made by God to be a father and I'm foing my best to do so. Maybe you need more time to find out your purpose. Be strong :-)

True love comes from God. . 1 john 4:7. If you have seen it then you have seen and know God.

Never having it is a big problem. I have seen it and now its the only thing I want (insert her as my beloved). Being alone is hell. But its not guaranteed to last in this world..only in the next. And a man will sell all he owns for that Pearl. Matthew 13:45-46 Yes you can buy it.

I know about this b/c its happening to me.

If you drive a car, maybe you should switch to more of a "gold digger-filter."

I asked the last one what she expected if we got married. She said: "I want money for clothes, trips and jewelry. And a big house by the water [in a very expensive part of town]."

I'm looking for intelligent, cultured, educated women with a good sense of humor. Unfortunately, appreciating the finer things means wanting the finer things. Sigh.

I’m single. As far as beloved goes there is 1 of 4 is the way I look at marriage. Like the change of seasons. Make your choice of which one you want to love and marry.

1 Corinthians 7:32-35
Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition

32 I want you to be free from anxieties. The unmarried man is anxious about the affairs of the Lord, how to please the Lord; 33 but the married man is anxious about worldly affairs, how to please his wife, 34 and his interests are divided.

And the unmarried woman or girl[a] is anxious about the affairs of the Lord, how to be holy in body and spirit; but the married woman is anxious about worldly affairs, how to please her husband. 35 I say this for your own benefit, not to lay any restraint upon you, but to promote good order and to secure your undivided devotion to the Lord.



The Father provides spectacularly no matter what our situations/station is life. Prayer is always the best place to start for any answer.
