I am single and have never ben married. That's right, NEVER! On the real, I would love to be married, to have a husband that supports me and the ministry that God has called me to. However, I am running into some problems in the man department.
I am not the most beautiful woman on the planet, but I'm pretty attractive if I must say so myself. I dress pretty well for a broke preacher. I keep my hair done and I can put on my make-up better than
Tyra Banks on most occasions. I'm a great cook and conversationalist. If I were to quote my youngest daughter, "I've got it going on!" So, why is it so hard for me to find a decent man to date much less marry?
I get approached by men all of the time wanting to take me out. I never reveal to them that I am a preacher up front. I usually tell them maybe on the second or third date what I do. The conversation goes like this:
Him: So, what do you do on the weekends?
Him: All weekend?
Me: Sometimes more than that.
Him: What are you ultra religious or something?
Me: I'm a preacher.
No: No, I just wear a clergy collar for the fun of it.
Now, this conversation ends in one of two ways. He either wants to take me home for fear of the wrath of God sending him to hell for taking a preacher out to dinner, OR, he starts to think of him, the horizontal mamba and me. Both are no good.
Then there's that brother that claims he will be all right with dating you because he's always wanted a christian woman. That is, until Annual Conference comes around, 3pm musicals, preaching engagements, District Conference, Mid-Year, Lent, Pentecost, Easter, Advent, Christmas, revivals, Mens Day, Womens Day, Usher Day, Choir Day, Pastor's Appreciation, Early Morning Lay Service, Bible Study and any other day that you have to attend. Whew, I guess I would re-think dating me also.
I don't know what the solution is other than to wait on God to send me that man who will stand by me as well as I will by him. I've kissed a lot of frogs in my time and none have turned into a prince. As a matter of fact, if I get one more wart, I think that I'm going to scream. LOL!
