I used to live in NC (in fact, I was born in Smithfield), and most of my mom's side of the family lives there.

UNCG... hmm. Never heard of it, but I checked out their faculty in their Religion dept and they have some impressive people. Not to be a creeper, but I majored in Religion and recently obtained my Masters so I am always interested in seeing who is from where in regards to faculty in Religion programs.

What is your major there?

UNCG is a great school! I love it's it's about not from downtown Greensboro! I haven't really met anyone in the religion department but I have heard great things about it! And I'm majoring in elementary education and thinking about minoring in music!

A purity ring should not be something that scares girls off and if It does then that's definitely not the kind of girl you should be looking for.

Back to square one guys I thought I was in the relationship God had planned for me but things ended up not working out. I'm trying to be patient but it's hard when God isn't being very vocal with me or showing a plan:/

Well, God does not show his plan of how things will turn out individually (nor is it something he expects us to try/succeed in). I know this sounds odd, because so many Christians talk and think as if God operates in this way. It makes them sound more spiritual. But only in cases of prophetic office does he do this, and only times which serve his purpose in expanding the kingdom, not our purposes or curiosity.

What he does, though, is gives us wisdom and tells us how we are to live righteously and faithfully. Perhaps more importantly, he is our father who is there WITH us in the midst of situations, not micromanaging in telling us what we gotta do and who we gotta date.

In other words, he does not tell us who to date, but he does tell us how to love.

It's not so much that I want him to tell me who to do but more of help me understand if I'm doing the right thing and well with a guy last year I felt like things fell into place perfectly he was a christian man who wanted to be my protector and treat me how I should be treated but distance caused things to not work out and now a guy I dated 2 years ago but just has been a friend has recently come back into my life and things are working out great but there are 2 big things that scare me with being with him so I'm just confused and on a rut

If you had a friend tell you about these "2 big things that scares" her, how would you counsel her? If there are two big things that scare you, talk with people who know you and him and confirm what you are thinking. If no one can confirm it, then it is probably not worth risking and getting yourself caught in the drama (or danger!).

Meanwhile, distance is hard. I had been in a relationship before with a gal who basically had no serious plan for resolving the distance (I had more significant obligations) -- we broke it off after like 6 months of online dating. We moved on. Much later, my wife (then girlfriend) and I had seriously talked about breaking up when we had been apart for a year and a half; we stuck it out because we created a plan for resolving the distance (rather than postponing it). Both cases mentioned above were hard times.

It is OK to move on if that is what you two decide: there are plenty of other guys out there, even if it means changing the scenery a little bit (getting involved in different ministries or even different churches; you could even move to a different town altogether and reestablish yourself with a whole new set of potential candidates. Unfortunately, sometimes it is hard to muster the gumption to make the change of scenery. Lots of single guys in my home church just didn't mesh well with the single gals at our church, and vice versa -- since the church was small, some of them were just extremely intentional about going to a different church, not just for dating but also for a different pace in ministry. There is no shame in that.
