NAS: Dating Fasts

Dating Fast

We’ve all heard about them, but have you ever done one? If so, what was your experience? If you haven’t, would you consider doing one? Why or why not?


Hi there,

I’m happy to be linking up with the Not Alone Series this week. Be sure to check out Jenn at:

Now onto the topic of the day—dating fasts. I’ve never heard of this type of fast or officially participated until I saw this question was going to be an upcoming link-up topic. I feel like since my last relationship ended nearly 2 and a half years ago, I’ve been on an imposed fast from dating. At first I totally despised it, however this year I’m learning to be content in this season of life. When I think about it I guess I’m not truly on a fast from dating because I’m on Catholic Match, but that has turned out to be a big flop. (That’s a story for another blog post).

While somedays I would love to be in a relationship, afterall I’ll be 32 soon, I’ve been learning deeper lessons about myself and what I’m looking for in a future date or potential husband. Yes, I’m all for finding him but only in God’s time!

Since I’m not a regular dater per say, I don’t think a dating fast is for me, however I do see the value in drawing closer to God and detaching from the world.

What do you think?

Until next time,
