First, thanks for writing this. I don’t know how many people may have come across it, but I’m grateful that I did. I’ve dated quite a bit but only had what I considered my first real relationship when I had moved to a new place…it’s irrelevant now, but I wish I had read this before hand. I’m actually in an interesting place right now, pursuing singleness as a means of focusing on God and strengthening myself in my faith and in myself, not being so reliant on the opinions of others to determine how I feel about myself. Anyway, I just wanted to say you’re so strong for what you’ve dealt with, I don’t know if I could have handled what you have so gracefully. Thank you for what you’ve written. I’ll have to look back at this a few more times to let the words really resonate.
