Keri states in the image above:
Sure I’d like to be married someday—but not enough to do it with the wrong person. So if you EVA see “Keri” walk down that aisle, even if I’m old & grey…you can rest assured—I didn’t settle. 💁🏽♀️
To have a man compliment my life, who is equally yoked in the things that MATTER like loyalty, virtue, depth, compassion, and love & respect for God, someone who understands healthy relational boundaries & pushes me to be my best self while supporting each other’s dreams?
Someone who has evolved from his lower self & constantly evolving? Someone who has learned his lessons & strives to be a great human being? Someone who holds my heart carefully & treats me well? Who is wise enough to lead me? Nah. And I don’t think God puts anything in our hearts that we are not capable of having.
Isn’t it a shame how society threats single women?! Unmarried men are considered bachelors, while women get the unfair label of lonely spinsters. ‘You’re too picky’ or your expectations are “too high” are the first thing people say about single ladies, suggesting that we must ‘lower’ our standards in order to secure a mate.
Social media has made it that much worse in that so many people are “watching” your life from the sidelines thinking they can give diagnose your problems. I can totally understand why so many choose to be ‘anti’ social media.
But I digress.
