In this article, I examine and discuss some of my favourite quotations about unrequited love.
Is the concept of "The One" in human love really true? If it is, how can we know who "The One" is? If it isn't true, then how can we make sense of God's sovereignty and predestination and the Christian commitment to monogamy in relation to this realisation? Has God prepared a partner for us in advance and, if so, how can we have any freedom in this area? If the concept of "The One" is not true, then how should we interpret the passages within Song of Songs which seem to suggest the truth of this concept?
An examination and discussion of questions including: What exactly does it mean to say that love is blind? Are both human love and divine love blind? If love is blind, is that a good thing?

In this article I will explore why God gave his eternal, everlasting covenant to David and his descendants rather than Eli, Samuel and Saul who committed seemingly less serious sins. How do these decisions from God cohere with His justice? I will also discuss why they, unlike David, had the covenant taken away from them.
