Stupid Things We Say to Singles

Left over from Valentine’s Day, I’m posting Justin Holcomb's list of some the stupid things said to or by single Christians.
  • There’s sin in your life that God wants you to work through first. Once you work it out, he’ll bring you a spouse. 
  • You should probably need to lower your standards. You’re only interested in men/women who are above your level. You need to be more realistic about who you are and what kind of guy/woman you can expect to be interested in you. 
  • You aren’t confident enough. If you liked you, guys/women would like you, too. 
  • Guys are intimidated by you. The more you accomplish, the less guys will want to ask you out. 
  • Why are you still single? Don’t you go to a huge church with lots of singles? 
  • Just stop thinking about it, then it will happen. 
  • God probably has you single for you to learn something. What is He trying to teach you? 
  • Maybe there’s sin that you need to deal with and He’s preventing you from inviting someone else into your sin. 
  • When you’re fully content in Him, then He will bring you a spouse. 
  • Maybe you’re not praying enough for a spouse. 
  • Put yourself out there. 
  • If you just lost 20 pounds a guy would be able to see how wonderful you truly are. 
  • God is trying to teach you something in this season. Once you learn it, he’ll bring you a spouse. 
  • Don’t worry, I’m sure you’re next! 
  • I have a friend who was 35 when she got married, there’s still hope for you too. 
  • God betroths those who betroth themselves. 
  • When you’re fully satisfied in God, then he’ll bring you a spouse. 
  • You get to be married to Jesus. 
  • Jesus was single on Valentines day, so you’re in good company. 
  • I know you feel lonely and broken hearted, but Jesus literally had a broken heart, when they pierced it for your sins. 
  • Loneliness is God’s way of drawing you to himself. 
  • She’s out there, man. Just have more faith. 
  • You’re gift on Valentine’s Day is singleness. 
  • You might be single, but they’re are other people who probably wish they were single. 
  • Go watch Bridget Jones Diary and feel sorry for yourself. 
  • I can’t remember the last time I was single on Valentine’s day. 
  • God works together all things for those who love him, even those who aren’t loved by anyone… especially on Valentine’s. 
  • Maybe you’re gay. 
Conclusion: Please don't say these things to you single friends!
