Miss Independent and Mr. Dependent: “Waiting To Exhale” 

Miss Independent and Mr. Dependent is a series of blog posts about what men and women think about dating, relationships, and real life situations! We will be taking a topic and asking men and women questions. We’re doing this anonymously because we want their open and honest opinion. 

This blog post is about a woman who hasn’t been in a relationship in over five years. She’s ready to start back dating, she’s been holding her breath, but now she’s ready to exhale. 

This entire post is about one woman. She said that she’s been hurt several times by men. Since her last relationship, she’s been approached by different men and is always asked out on dates. She’s just afraid of history repeating itself. She said that she doesn’t have to be exclusive with anyone, but she wants him to be honest and open about what he wants. She wants them both to have a good understanding. 


The following are her words: 

“I’ve been through so much. I’m tired of getting hurt. I haven’t been on a date in a long time. There is a guy that I’m interested in, but I’m afraid to let him know. I’m afraid that I’m not his type and he will reject me. I wish he could be like the other guys and just ask me out. But he’s different, and that is why I think that I may not be his type. I want to date, but I don’t want to date just anyone. I do have standards. I know that no one is perfect. I’m not looking for a perfect man. I just desire a decent man. A friend. Dating is hard. I don’t even know where to start. I’m seriously just waiting to exhale. Thanks for allowing me to share my thoughts. I feel as if I’m starting to exhale already.”

    I love it Valeria. it might be her Boaz. When Naomi guided young Ruth she told her to clean up real nice, fix your self up, and go in and lay at his feet.. She gave her words of wisdom on how to go forth something this generation knows nothing about, seeking the counsel of the wise. I hear you Michelle and totally agree with your comment. Sylvia the strategy you gave was rhema, write it down and say it out loud! Now how does it sound? Exactly, start over and get rid of all the trival things and keep the essential things. To the woman in the story, put on your confidence outfit, hair, and definitely Pink Leopard accessories and make your intentions known. The worse that could happen is wondering what if! Great series starter!

    Meditate. Pray. And write it down. She without a vision is lost. Even when you create a list of things you desire, consult someone older, who is an elder in your community or family. Somethings such as courting modern day dating needs to be supervised with a mature older adult who can help steer us in the correct direction. Always pray about everything but if I were the young lady I would definitely seek counsel from my elders first. It’s okay to receive counsel before you make any decision in life. It helps.

    I say wait on God and allow God to lead the man he has for you. I would suggest that you make a list of what you desire in a man and pray over your list then reread your list and take off things that are not important as you thought.
