Lately I have been feeling like I am stuck in the middle. I don't even know what I am stuck in the middle of. I guess I am just in a different place in life and I don't really know what to do about it. Maybe nothing? Maybe something? I feel like everyone around me is at one end of the spectrum or the other and here I sit, smack dab in the middle.

On one end I have my single friends. They aren't dating anyone and aren't really looking. On the other end I have my married (and a few engaged) friends and family.. most of them with kids. I honestly don't really know anyone in the "dating" stage of life. Don't get me wrong, I am most definitely enjoying the "dating" stage of my life. I just don't like the feeling of not relating to the people in those other stages of life.

Then there's church. I love the church Jared and I go to. But I don't feel connected there either. I would love to get involved in a weekly bible study. Problem is that most of them are on nights that I work. Most of them are geared towards married/engaged couples and others are geared towards single women. Again.. I don't fit into any of those categories. Why not a group for dating couples? We need help figuring out life too!

Ugh. What's a girl to do?

I wish I had some words of wisdom for you, but I don't. It's frustrsting to see someone you love frustrated and not be able to 'help'. I could say all the things that other people say, you know...'patience, your time is coming', yada, yada, yada...but that doesn't help. SO...I guess all I can say is I love you and I'm proud of you, and if you ever need someone to vent to, I'm here. Don't know if that helps, but it's heartfelt. Love you honey.

I hear you sister!
Though not currently dating, I fall at that odd age for single's groups. Most of them are generic '20s/30s somethings' and others are 18-24, or 35+.
I don't really want to hang out exclusively with those kids fresh out of high school.
And, I'm too young for the other side.
Totally get the dilemma! And, I think you're right on about 'dating' groups! That's a huge part of life and the Christian walk, so why not meet and mingle with those in the same phase? Oy! Love ya!
