Are Christian Online Dating Services Your Answer?

Have you heard about the Christian online dating services that are available? Online dating sites have become more prevalent in the past few years. At the same time, they are becoming more and more specialized. No where is this more true than in the area of religious preferences. There are actually dating sites catering to Christians. Currently these Christian online dating services claim a membership of approximately one half million members. These individuals are using the criteria of Christianity as they seek out singles who share this commitment and are interested in finding friendship and, perhaps, romance.

Christians live in a variety of communities and have a variety of interests. These sites give them the opportunity to meet others who share their religious beliefs and commitment. The challenges of being new in town can be overcome this way. That’s what makes these Christian online dating services so popular.

In addition to meeting others, these sites give their members opportunities for spiritual and social growth. For example, the Christian online dating services have chat rooms available to members for Bible study and discussion. In today’s world, it may be difficult to find a study group that meets at a time convenient for the individual. Chat rooms allow for conversation and discussion at almost any time.



What is true for all dating sites is also true for Christian online dating services. The site itself and the services it offers must be appropriate for the potential member. The more this type of site mirrors the beliefs and values of their members, the greater the opportunity to meet individuals and build deep and lasting friendships and, perhaps, find romance. Since many of these sites provide a free trial period of some sort, researching the number of Christians within a specific geographic area and learning what the site has to offer can be done without a financial outlay.  

The adventure has never been greater. Once a user upgrades from a free to a paid membership, contacting another single is facilitated.  Since the rates are reasonable, it is one way to expand friendships without paying a high price.

There are thousands of singles using the services of a Christian on line dating service. With the services, some of them may never have met the individuals who grew from friendship to romance to a life time partnership. So, there’s no reason not to give one of these Christian online dating services a try and see if you may just find someone special.

Online Dating Tips For Safety And Success

The following online dating tips will help you get the most from internet dating and keep you safe at the same time.

Tip #1 Sign up for the right type of dating website.

There are now literally hundreds of dating sites that fit different preferences and lifestyles.

If you’re looking for love, there are sites like Match.com, Chemistry.com and PerfectMatch.com that use compatibility matching systems.

Looking for no strings? Try FriendFinder.com, LaveLife.com or AdultFriendFinder.com or a similar site.

There are also dating sites for gay people, military singles, people with STDs, etc.

Tip #2 Your profile should give people details about your interests.

Your profile needs to state a couple of things:

First, you should highlight your main qualities and attributes.

Describe some things that you enjoy doing

The second thing you must do is explain what you’re after.

Are you seeking something long term or casual? Are you picky? Share things that turn you off (try not to be nasty about it).

Tip #3 You should upload your up to date pictures.

Post current, not old pictures of yourself.

Tip #4 Individualize each email you send.

Don’t send some generic message to each person you contact.

Use something in their profile to ask 1 or 2 interesting questions or highlight stuff that you have in common.

Tip #5 Always, always be extra cautious.

1. Be very private initially. Giving out your home telephone number and whole name is all somebody needs to find out lots of details about you.

2. Never ignore red flags.

Shady people always give warning signs. It’s up to you to notice them.

3. First dates should always be in public. No exceptions.

4. Tell at least one person where you’re going and who you’re meeting up with.

Tip #6 Read the signs that say he (or she) is playing games.

1. If he or she doesn’t post photos, maybe it’s because they don’t want to get caught up.

2. If he’s very vague when it comes to details about his life, well, it’s pretty obvious he’s hiding something. Like a wife and kids maybe?

3. He’s only available only very specific times.

4. He doesn’t call much, but he sends lots of text messages. Maybe his wife and kids are close by?

5. If you’ve been talking for 2 or 3 weeks or longer and you haven’t been invited to his house, something’s up with that.

Tip #7 Honesty is always the best policy.

Many online daters tell little (or big) lies about parts of their life that they fear will turn people off.

The problem with this is that once you go there, you have to keep up the lies. As you become closer, this becomes harder and harder.

Also, just be who you are. Don’t pretend to be anything other than who you are. As you get closer to someone, the real you is going to show up eventually.

Following these tips will help you meet people online while avoiding the headaches and heartache that some internet daters go through.
