Our present troubles are small and won't last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweights them and will last forever! (2 Corinthians 4:17)
When we go to God's Word for counsel, we find the answer in a paradigm shift. Stop looking at things the the here and now and start looking to eternal things! Obsessing on the perceived need to have someone to love us causes us to over look the fact that there is one who has loved us and made a way for us to be with him forever. It's the greatest romance ever! It's not about making things better or even bearable now; it's about being rescued from a horrible future (separated from God because of sin) and brought instead into a Kingdom fit for the bride of a King!
The question isn't, To date or not to date? The question is, What's your motivation? If the motivation comes from a violent craving, then take guys off the table until Christ is all you need. Spend some time building that eternal relationship, and you'll find he truly is all you need.
