Olympic athlete Lolo Jones has said she feels it’s best, spiritually, not to remain friends with the men she’s dated after they break up. Instead, she spends her time praying to God about her future husband.
“I can’t be friends with a guy after we stop talking,” Jones tweeted. “Rather spend time praying 4 my future husband than entertaining ones God closed the door to.”
Jones, the 33-year-old track and field athlete-turned-bobsledder, has been vocal about her struggles with love for some time and previously opened up about being hurt by failed relationships.
“Guard your heart,” Jones tweeted back in April. “In the moment I’ll be confused and hurt when relationships don’t work out but as time passes I see God was simply protecting me from you.”
Jones has been opening up about her personal relationship choices for years, including her decision to remain a virgin until marriage. In an interview with the “Today” show in 2012, the hurdler admitted that it has not always been easy to stand by that decision.
“I’ve been tempted. I’ve had guys tell me, they’re like, ‘Hey, you know if you have sex it will help you run faster. If you marry me, then yeah,” Jones previously said on “Today.” “It’s just something, a gift that I want to give to my husband. But please understand this journey has been hard. If there’s virgins out there, I just want to let them know, it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life.”
She added, “harder than training for the Olympics, harder than graduating from college, has been to stay a virgin before marriage.”
