Stuff Christian singles hear ... over and over and over again

I found this on Sr. Miriam Heidland's blog and found it quite true.  It's both amusing and sad.    

What's the answer to living singleness well?  I think it's to surrender all to Christ, continually trying over and over again to do so, to place one's trust and one's whole self in the Lord's hands, and to admit that awaiting a vocation is a kind of suffering.  Certainly, good things can come from the waiting and the discerning and the trust and the patience, but it's also true that awaiting an opportunity to give one's self in a vocation for a life of love (whether through marriage or the consecrated life) is difficult and a suffering.  The question then becomes, what do we do with this suffering?
