You know, all experiences in life are learning experiences - if we will open our eyes and look for them. I have written here before about my lack of experiences in the dating world - and how much I long for and desire a Godly husband and children.
I wrote a couple of weeks ago about my trying to conquer fear and learning how to do this thing called dating. Well, tonight I learned that it is a good thing sometimes to just ask the question: "so what are you thinking?"
Turns out that the guy that I have been seeing and I were both wondering the same thing. And we were both ready enough to know the answer to bring up the topic. It even turns out (God is funny this way sometimes) that we were really both in the same place. So, we aren't going to be "dating" anymore. And that is really ok with me.
I know that this experience has opened my eyes to lots of things about dating and relationships that I knew intellectually, but hadn't really experienced before. I know that I learned quite a bit about myself and the potential pitfalls that I need to learn to avoid in the future. I know there is still much for me to learn. But, it really was overall a good experience.
I just hope I remember some of these lessons the next time!
