A very few don't feel at all like a sexual relationship with anyone and just feel called for spiritual concerns – for a relationship with God -1Corinthians 7:32-35; Matthew 19:12
    If one strongly feels that he or she doesn't want to share and help another be happy here involving a sexual relationship and feels led to just serve God, then that's all well and good: Paul came to feel this way after a sexual relationship and when a time of distress (factors causing sorrow, misery, suffering and pain) was upon the church -1Corinthians 7:7-10,25,26 "For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner and another after that. I say therefore to the unmarried and widows: It is good for them if they abide even as I. But if they cannot contain, let them marry. For it is better to marry than to burn-(sexually). And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord: Let not the wife depart from her husband...Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of the Lord, yet I give my judgment, as one that hath obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful. I suppose therefore that this is good for the present distress, I say, that it is good for a man so to be." 
    One can serve God as Paul did, whether in a sexual relationship or not -Romans 1:9 "For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel.....";-Romans 7:6; 8:27. How are we kept by God in His service?
     What's your heart telling you? If you feel you're giving up something, then better to have a male/female relationship along with the spiritual one with God. God sees deep. He calls no one from something that's a part of him that he would then lack if in total service of God. 
    But what about Jonah some may ask? Jonah didn't want to do as God said even though he had already given his life to God -Jonah 1:1-3,9; 2:4,9. Read the whole story (4 short chapters) about how Jonah, after doing what God says in warning the city of Nineveh, which city changes from their evil ways, gets angry at this. It shows that even the imperfect in heart are used by God.

Male/Female Relationships (see also 'Mating' sometime)
If-your companion/partner doesn't treat you as he/she should be thankful!
     A relationship seldom goes on the rocks when a couple finds something in common to laugh about. 
     Today's relationships still are for better or worse – just not for too long! Sadly though, some are dead.
     The greatest long term relationships are spiced with a hot sexual attraction that is seldom far below the surface. 

God made male and female--Adam and Eve; not Adam and Steve, or Eve and Evelyn, or Adam, Eve and Erica -Mark 10:6; Ecclesiastes 7:29; Proverbs 5:15
   A few men and women lack the knowledge of how to have a loving relationship between a man and a woman. Some become homosexual, thinking it's normal -Romans 1:26,27
    Some become homosexual because their feelings may have been shut down from a lack of love and attention in their early years, especially from the father. "Past feeling" in Ephesians 4:19 in the original Greek means "separated from feeling". Tense of the original Greek word is perfect; voice is active; mood is participle.
    Once one becomes "past feeling", he or she becomes excessively selfish regarding immoral acts to the point of hurt for self and others, as Paul explains here in Ephesians 4:19.

I used to wonder when I was in my twenties how older men could cry when they saw examples of man's inhumanity to man, or children in third world countries so unfortunate that they were at the point of starvation or severely ill. I guess I was callous and cold, but it bothered me that they were able to be like that and I couldn't. It just 'wasn't in me'. 
   I prayed about it, saying that if these men were sincere with these emotions that I could see were good then I wanted to be that way too. As the years have gone by, I've become that way too – thankfully! I like it that I feel deeply for people and want to help then as well as pray about them and their lives.
    I know God hears, and I know God becomes more active in blessing their lives in ways God knows best for them.
    The key to a blessed relationship.-...continues
