Hi all,
I'm 26. I was just curious if there are any other Orthodox singles, in their 20s, on here? I thought I would open the floor for anyone who wants to air their thoughts and/or woes on this "blessed time of singleness."  Smiley

Divorced.  Being single isn't necessarily the worst fate.

My niece, Marijka, is single, and Orthodox. She lives in Ukraine, in the city of Luts'k, the capital of the Volyn region in northwestern Ukraine. She is a very, very beautiful girl, a student of the Regional Academy of Management, working for her bachelor's degree, 21 years old, tall, perfect fashion model figure, long blond hair, lapis lazuli eyes. If you are willing to settle in Ukraine, I will be happy to "hook" her with you. I am going to Ukraine tomorrow, will be back to the US on Aug. 1.

Single at 33.  Never married.  May possibly marry the girl I'm with now.  If not, then I think I will head to the monastery for an extended period of discernment.

I'm 35 and single... always have been. There have been periods of time in the past it has bothered me. I'd long for a loving wife to talk to and confide in, and children running up to me and yelling "Daddy, Daddy, look what I did in school today!" That's in the past though, I don't think so much about it now. I figure if I'm meant to be married, God will direct. I did the looking thing before, and let's just say I don't have the greatest of luck when it comes to women. Being Orthodox of course makes the possibilities a bit more limited, but I'm not willing to sacrifice my faith for love.

22 and single for just over a year now. Dated a girl on-and-off for seven years. I'm glad to say I have friends to spend time with, and work/hobbies to busy myself, but...still lonely sometimes. I've always wanted to be a good husband/father. I'd say it's in the top three, easy, of life goals to accomplish. Long-distance relationship is how my last relationship went, but, the post about the Ukrainian niece, you know the year-old post up there, did catch my eye for a second, lol. Tongue

23 and single...it's not always that easy, especially when everyone else your age is going out to "clubs" and having different partners every week and then criticise you for not doing the same. Not an easy road at all, and it can be lonesome not only in the area of romance, but as far as friends go as well because many just simply do not understand why I am the way I am, or it is possible that because I take no interest in the mainstream western "culture" and those self-exile myself from my peers...

I'm sure many here have gone or are going through similar situations.

Twenty-somethings concerned about their singlehood? Better to remain so than marry the wrong person because of some sort of cultural imperative. I've had to deal with a lad who was in his thirties who was so desperate to marry, that he tied the knot with a "Russian bride". I'm still getting over the damage it did to me. And, for the record, I'm happily married - we were in our mid-to-late thirties at the time, first marriage for both of us.

Gisasargavak, I feel much the same way you do. Although I don't envy others my age that go out clubbing or bar hopping... never had any desire for that. Certainly never had any desire for "a new girl" every week either.  I too am very different, or rather unique as I harken back to an older order so to say. I have little interest in most of modern mainstream western culture. This makes it difficult to have friends (no real common ground or interests to put it simply) let alone a relationship. I relate better to people of my grandparents era (WWII generation) than my own. I don't care for pop music, most modern styles of dress, and very little television programming. In fact, I'm tossing my TV out very soon as I rarely use it except for a bit of CNN now and then. Just not worth it. I have tried to do the pop culture thing several times in the past and it was always short lived. I can't fool myself for very long, it's just not me. Yes, it is a hard and lonely way to go at times, but I always have to company of Our Lord and the Saints!  I'm not giving up on finding a wife, but I'm not looking in particular either. I'll leave it up to God.

23, single, and happy with it. Knowing the standard I've set I've basically resigned myself to single-hood. I'm not sure where or how I'll ever find a girl who sees the world as I do. Is there even a 23 year old girl who dresses modestly, doesn't fret about her appearance, and likes to banter about bad Netflix movies and then go to bed without any funny business? Plus I feel like I always loose myself in relationships. Hobbies and God keep me as busy as I need to be. And I have one really good friend whom I trust. I've never thought I'd be the dude who eats out by himself and goes to a ball game alone but its not so bad. God fills holes you'd never expect He could.

That's how I felt when I was single for a time being. It's funny now since I've come to Christ because if my relationship now was to end I wouldn't be so heartbroken because I have Christ who dwells in me.

I am glad that you are happy, but those gals do exist (sounds a bit like me, honestly Wink and I have met girls in college that are similar). We asked the same about guys and hey, guess what? You are out there. Now, to have both people hanging out in the same place at the same time...

May God's will be done for you all.  Smiley

If your on your own and you want to be with someone then why not??

Wow and I thought I was the only one!  I'm 25, and never really did the whole "dating" scene.. -- struggled with self esteem issues a lot, but even now that I'm over that, I'm still just not interested.  I sort of feel like because everybody else around me is dating, getting married, or having kids -- I must be the oddball for not doing the same.  I don't really care to get to know most women beyond anything other than just being a friend.. -- it would be nice to have a female companion of sorts, but at the same time.. I wonder if something like that is really for me.  Or, maybe I should just become a priest.. and then maybe a monk..

I will say I've learned my lesson. If I ever date/marry in the future, it'll be only an Orthodox girl. I won't even consider anything else. I was talking with my mom and apparently my dad is hoping I'll meet someone at the Church in Korea. My dad is Lebanese and he's not to keen of what he's seen in America or Lebanon. Me? I'm still trying to figure out what God wants for my life, but if it's to be married, I want someone who loves being in Church and wants to raise a family centered around God and the Church. I really don't want anything less than finding someone who is trying to get close to God.

Everytime I hear that song, I remember this now:
