Dodging Twitterpation

I like that word, twitterpated. It's from the movie Bambi used to describe how everyone was falling in love in the spring and that everyone eventually falls "victim" to it. I feel like I'm about to head into such a period and I'm a little paranoid. Let me explain. Last summer during Summer @ CanIL I saw at least 3 couples start from the students that were there. There were several skits on "Vowel Harmony" something linguistic but used as a joke counterpart to "eHarmony". I even had professors and staff at some points make intimations and suggestions. The overall expectation is that its okay. And in truth it is, but for some reason it isn't the kind of situation I imagine myself building a relationship with a woman. To be sure, in no other place am I likely to find someone with similar or the exact same goals in life that I have, so maybe if I dodge twitterpation this summer then I'll remain single for the rest of my life. Theres the rub though, I'm okay with that. I'm not even sure that I want to get married someday. God is going to have to speak to me in that area and lead me, because honestly I'm an idiot when it comes to these things, so I generally avoid the subject. Sure I joke about it a lot, but honesty in this area is something I struggle with because I don't want to deal with it. So I find myself heading into a situation I don't particularly like and wonder what might happen this summer. Luckily (this is about the only time I use the word luck!) and ultimately, Christ is in charge, not me. So I'm not too worried about it.

For His Glorious Name,
