I would much rather continue to be rejected by this world than to quit putting The Lord first just to please my flesh. I'd rather be respected for my faith, then "liked" by this world. Being a Christian and living as one in today's dating world isn't always peachy, but you can always learn from it or be a witness to someone else through it. I have never ONCE made The Lord a priority through dating and later regretted it. Human rejection may sting for a minute, but The Lord's faithfulness is so much sweeter.
