Why is it so hard to meet other Torah singles?

    Shalom to all on this forum.

    They said this section is about everything else so here goes ...

    I'm a single woman who has been walking this path for three years now.

    I know that the Father is able to do anything but I'm starting to feel like Sarah.

    Am I going to be 90 before I meet a man who is "equally yoked" ? (not sure if I like that terminology)

    It can get really discouraging sometimes.

    If the Father is protecting me, than I just ask that He remove the desire for companionship from my heart.
    But the Scriptures say that it is not good for a man to be alone .. and it's not good for a woman either.

    Oh well.
    I feel better now
    Thanks for letting me vent ....

    I will be praying with you that Father helps you to find the mate your heart desires and that Father help you to understand His plan for your life in every way.

    Hi Texas Woman,

    I think part of the reason for that is that there is so much division. I met a wonderful man about a year and a half ago, we dated for about a year. I have been in this walk since the beginning of 2008, where he has only been in the walk for about three years and attends a messianic synagogue. I began my walk in a sacred name group, whereas at the synagogue they are happy using titles, there are also calendar issues, and how to properly keep the Passover versus a Seiter. We are still friends, and do lots of things and spend time together, but I think these few important topics divided us, and I believe personally that it has to do with the fact that he’s under the authority of a rabbi where I am not. Plus he is not as taught at this point and admits to not knowing how to study, where I do. Therefore he is relying more on man than I have to. It broke my heart, but I do believe that Yahweh brought us together for a reason and will continue to pray that his growth in Scripture will bring us back to where we were. Prayer!!

    wow Torah warrier, I have been what I call "called out"status for almost 20 years. I was a young single woman when it began and like you I met several messianic men along the way, but who just were not "for me". I cannot be as you are so sure that the cause . I am not at all sure it was not me, . I surely have had a lot of work to do on that.

    I was praying this morning on rising for our sister .Texas Woman and wondered if there was a dating websites for Messianics.... there are, I am not sure about them, know nothing except you can google and find ithem but here are two from a long list on google. Pray about it and try some to see what happens.

    Thanks for the comments ..

    I have tried one of those singles websites and the only man who contacted me tried to convince me to fly down to Mexico and meet him without ever having talked on the phone. Needless to say, I deleted my account on there asap and have never been back.

    Yes, there are so many points that can divide even Torah believers .. calendars, rabbinical vs independent, flat earth, headcoverings .. just to name a few. Thanks for your prayers.
