    Hi, Ive been doing alot of research and trying to find answers on how to be a better man for my future wife. (Im 25)

    Ive had many struggles and doubts are creeping in as that I might not find her, and that my love for women is growing cold from past hurts.

    Is it wrong to me to want a wife more then anything? I pray for her all the time. I have doubts though that Ill never find her, and that God doesnt want me to have one.

    What does it mean to surrender my desire for a wife to God? If he gave me that desire, why do I have to give it up or back? Why cant I be thankful and pursue someone. I get confused on what that really means.

    and Finally, I dont know if you can answer this question, but Im going through a dry season with God. I am so distant, emotionally withdrawn, I miss having that spark and love in my heart. I cant even attract a woman with how I am now. Ive prayed for months that it will go away, But I dont see any hope or sign that this will happen. Should I expect good things to happen and proclaim I am healed etc?

    I worry that God will ruin this desire, and let me down. I dont want to surrender this to him, its too important to me. I miss having a woman in my life, and its my greatest desire. I would rather settle for an unbeliever woman then never get one at all.
