Lord have mercy on Biro, and me, the lowly sinner who's always looking for an interesting and amiable spouse.  ;)

Lord, have mercy on your children.

As I understand it - St. Paisius Monastery has an Akathist to Sts. Joachim and Anna which may be prayed to find a spouse.

I'm fine, I'm starting to rethink my Christian female friends. I'll enjoy some time by myself right now, but who knows the future?

Today I remembered that I can't talk to women without getting incredibly anxious (this excludes old ladies, relatives and half dozen good friends, but is otherwise almost universal). At least I'm a good talker and have an okay face.

Rapha, please remember that it is a prayer forum. This your second post in this thread without prayer or asking for it.

I'm not sure of marriage.  I don't feel like my life or happiness would only be complete with a spouse.  I'm very content with my life as it is and I hardly feel the need to search for an intimate companion.  I enjoy the company of friends, close and in my social circle.  As lonely as being single can sometimes be, marriage is not its cure.


Besides, when our society grew so... unsavory, many people have been deeply wounded by its ethos.  The odds of meeting an available, faithful and devout Christian woman in my age bracket is nearly nil, with the good ones having already been taken decades ago.


Lord, have mercy!


PS: I didn't mean to hijack the thread though.
