Lies Singles Believe


We all tend to believe lies… Here is a list of lies that singles tend to believe. I found the list HERE. Perry Noble was the writer:

  1. Being miserable is the result of being single…getting married will solve all my problems.
  2. I’ve messed up in my past and do not deserve anyone good. (See 1 Cor. 6:9-11, especially focus on verse 11!)
  3. This relationship that I am in isn’t what I would like my marriage to be like..but when we get married I can change this person.
  4. Having sex will simplify things and cause the person I am dating and myself to have so much more in common.  (See 1 Cor. 6:18-20)
  5. This person is not God’s best for me…but if I rush through the process of dating and getting married then I have God backed into a corner and He has to bless me because He loves me, right?  (See Deut. 6:16)
  6. Marriage isn’t that big of a deal…if my first one does not work out then I can drop them and start over.  (See Malachi 2:13-16)
  7. Getting married isn’t going to alter my lifestyle…I am still going to be able to live like I did when I was single, the only difference is I’m going to get to have more sex.
  8. I am going to get to have sex anytime I want.
  9. We are going to cuddle all of the time.
  10. The things that really get all over my nerves about this person won’t bother me as much when we get married.
  11. The fact that we do not agree on what we believe when it comes to Jesus and the church will not impact the way we raise our kids.  (See 2 Cor. 6:14 and Amos 3:3)
  12. We should live together before we get married to give it a “trial run,” after all, you would not buy a car without test driving it first.  (See Heb. 13:4)
  13. I need to keep as many secrets about my past from this person as possible; after all, my past issues won’t impact this relationship at all.
  14. All of my friends are married…I am not…something is obviously wrong with me.
  15. The way I handle my money now will not impact my future marriage.
  16. When I get married my spouse will meet all of my needs.
  17. Dating is tough…marriage is easy!

  1. Hi David,

    I have had men in my life but there is a lot to say about the single life. Women should not be afraid to be single if they can’t find the right partner. I feel God has spared me a great deal of problems by keeping me single and I feel very content with the life He has given me. Also, I can make my own decisions and I’m free to serve God through service in the church without anything holding me back as long as my health holds out. Some women don’t seem to think beyond planning for their wedding and have no idea of all the responsibility and hard work they will have for the rest of their lives. I did not see happy marriages in my family when I was growing up so I’m sure that had something to do with my life decisions. Of course too I was in the convent for 15 years, which I’m sure has had an effect on all this.
