Lolo Jones almost “drank a bottle of alcohol to ease the pain” after feeling emotionally drained over her love life.
On Sunday, the 39-year-old Olympic hurdler and bobsledder posted a note on her Instagram, explaining that men constantly tease her about her decision not to have sex until marriage. Jones also revealed that she recently severed ties with a man she recently “spoke to for eight months.”
“Tonight I blocked the guy I spoke to for 8 months. My heart just couldn’t take it anymore,” Jones wrote in her post. “He gave me so many mixed signals. He talked about marriage and kids but then kept me in the friend zone. He would never take the time to see me. My heart is so heavy.”
Jones continued that she was “so exhausted” from her dating life and had “prayed for years with many tears that God would please allow me to find my husband.”
“I even prayed when God didn’t want me to get married to take the desire out of my heart. But over the years I want to get married more and more and I really want to have a family of my own. And I keep getting heartbroken,” Jones wrote.
“I get teased all the time because I don’t want to have premarital sex. become boys [direct message] me that I am old. I’m done, I should just get out. So I just cry where are you god Your Word says John 14:14. If you ask me anything on my behalf, I will do it. I ask God to grant my heart’s desire. Your word says two are better than one. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 I’m just asking God to honor my heart because faith hurts right now. I’m tired of being teased. I ask God, my father, my protector, my provider, please emerge. Please honor me.”
A day later, Jones took to Instagram to share a separate post, joking about her candid note. She shared a video of herself laughing and saying, “Wow, did I post that?”
In the comments to her post, captioned “Wake up the next day and see my texts,” Jones said, “I have no regrets.”
Thanking her supporters for their “messages and prayers,” the two-sport Olympian wrote, “Now I’m getting real. I was so hurt last night I just wanted to drink a bottle of alcohol to ease the pain and I don’t even drink like that! 😢 I felt lonely and my heart hurt. I felt forgotten by God. I don’t have any answers and I don’t have a fairy tale ending to my story to say, “Hey, everyone has faith that everything will work out.” I am the Israelites in the desert.
“All I can say is that last night, with a heavy heart, God helped me get through the night. I didn’t drink, instead I read as many encouraging messages as I could from you guys, I prayed for other people who sent messages to me. I felt many people going through similar difficulties and yet struggling in faith. That encouraged me. Thanks.”
