In an environment saturated with frat stars, keg stands, serial dating, and immaturity it can seem, at times, as though there is no hope in finding a good Christian guy. Don’t get me wrong, not all environments are this way and if you are in one filled with God loving males than don’t take that for granted for even a second, but if you are like the majority of us- read on to be encouraged in this season that you are in and know that there are men out there for you. You just have to wait patiently.
Where The Christian Guys At?
We joke about this time and time again: “Where the Christian guys at?” We ask our friends half kidding, half serious. We all laugh after, but there is rarely a serious conversation that follows.
Whether you go to a religiously affiliated school or not, this may speak to you. Sometimes it seems almost impossible to find a Christian guy in college and once you find one…of course, he has a girlfriend!
This can seem super frustrating at times (hence the question “where the Christian guys at?”), but I’m here to tell you “Hold up. Wait a minute.”
While you may see some of your friends getting their “ring by Spring”, DO NOT WORRY!
God has a plan for you. God has a guy for you. It’s all under control.
Although college is often portrayed as “the time to date and find your spouse”, I’m also here to tell you, IT’S NOT!
College is the time for you to learn about yourself and the world around you. If you happen to meet a super great guy along the way, WONDERFUL, but that is not what we are here to do, nor is there a time limit on doing so.
Really take this time to grow into yourself and grow into your relationship with the Lord.
One day, your Prince will come. You may have to wait it out a little bit longer than some people, but it will be worth the wait. In the mean time, YOU are your number one priority. Love yourself, love the Lord, love those around you and the right guy will come along with time.

Still need more encouragement in this area? Check out this article by Audrey Roloff about “being more concerned with becoming the right women, than finding the right man.” IT IS AMAZING! Give it a read, and I promise you will be encouraged in a season of singleness if that is where you find yourself. Read it here.
