Lolo Jones is absolutely exhausted in her dating life and she’s calling on God for help.
The 39-year-old athlete, who jokingly calls herself the “Charles Barkley of the Olympics,” took to Instagram on Saturday night and had a very vulnerable and transparent moment.
Lolo shared how she just blocked a guy she had been talking to for 8 months because he continuously sent her mixed signals.
She opened up about being teased because she doesn’t have premarital sex and how men tell her she might as well give it up because she’s old and washed up.
In a post on her official Instagram page, Lolo Jones wrote:
Tonight I blocked the guy I was talking to for 8 months.
My heart just couldn’t take it anymore. He gave me so many mixed signals.
He would talk about marriage and kids but then keep me in the friend zone.
He would never make time to see me. My heart is so heavy.
I’m so exhausted in my dating life.
I have continually asked God to honor me with a Godly man. I’ve prayed for years and with many tears for God please to allow me to find my husband.
I even prayed if God didn’t want me to be married to remove the desire from my heart.
But, as the years grow I want to be married more and desire badly to have a family of my own.
And I just keep getting my heart broke.
I get teased all the time because I won’t have premarital sex.
Guys dm me that I’m old. I’m washed up I should just put out already.
So I’m just crying out. Where are you God?
Your word says John 14:14. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.
I’m asking God to please Honore the desire of my heart. Your word says two are better than one. Ecc 4:9-12
I’m just asking God to honor my heart because my faith is hurting right now.
I’m tired of getting teased. I’m asking God my father, my protector, my provider please show up.
Please honor me.
Lolo also added:
I need you God because I’m absolutely exhausted.
Also please be kind in the comments. 🥺

Your story is a beautiful written testimony! God doesn’t give us anything we can’t handle.
It’s okay to feel tested, that’s humanity.
Everything is going according to plan, stay true to what’s in your heart and the universe will too.
So proud of you!
It’s not easy to stand up for ourselves all the time, but dammit you are doing it and doing it well!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
On Sunday, Lolo made light of her post with a video where she said, “Wow. Did I post that?! Oops.”
She later added that she has no regrets for sharing.
I regret nothing lol ☺️. I just want to thank you everyone for the messages and prayers.
Now I’m about to get real. I was so hurt last night I just wanted to chug a bottle of alcohol to make the pain less and I don’t even drink like that! 😢I felt lonely and my heart hurt. I felt forgotten by God.
I don’t have the answers and I don’t have some fairy tale ending to my story to say hey everyone have faith it all works out. I’m the Israelites in the desert.
All I can say is last night God helped me get thru the night with a heavy heart. I did not drink instead I read as many encouraging messages I could from you guys, I prayed for other people that sent me messages.
I felt many people going thru similar hardships yet still fighting in faith. That encouraged me. Thank you.
My heart goes out to Lolo Jones and all my ICC Friends who are feeling exhausted on the dating scene.
