“I want you to know there are a lot of capable, beautiful LDS women for good men to choose from. There are a lot of capable, hard-working, and kind LDS men to do the choosing. But in my 10+ years of young single adult experience and the beginning of my mid-singles experience, there is still a lot of fear, doubt, and childishness which is manifested [by eligible men].
“I recently watched a version of Peter Pan where Wendy is asking Peter to enter a realm of adulthood through feeling love. Peter gets upset and resists by saying: 'I always want to be a little boy and to have fun!' And it’s true. I see that same sort of resistance from our men every day."
My single friends, from personal experience I promise you that the sweetness of marriage and family life is a wonderful gift that should be sought after and not delayed. I encourage you to prayerfully consider what you are doing to work toward this worthy goal.
