About Christian Dating
As it says in Genesis, the first book of the Bible, it is not good for man (or woman) to be alone. However, finding that special someone to change your alone state is easier today on the internet. Oddly enough, if you were looking for almost any secular behavior known to man, finding a partner for that would be simple, but on matters of faith, the selection can be a bit more complex.
Luckily for you, there are websites for single Christians to save you the effort of winnowing through people on the secular sites in your search for a partner. This is good as one of the key tenets of Christianity when it comes to marriage is the idea of being ‘equally yoked’, finding a partner with faith like yours, so there are sites out there to help you find the other side of your ‘yoke’. No matter what ‘flavor’ of Christianity you practice, there is a dating website for you. As the commercial says, ‘sometimes you’re waiting for God to move and He is waiting for you to move’. A Christian dating site could be your best move to finding the partner the Lord has in store for you. Christian Cupid is a good starting point.
According to the Washington Post, 84 percent of the world has faith, a belief in a higher power, and a third of those professing faith are Christians. These numbers should excite you as it means you are not alone in your faith, so there is no need for you to be alone in your life. Of course, these numbers include people that are already in committed relationships, but with last United States Census showing that 47 percent of the adults living in America are single, meaning never married, divorced, or widowed, you still have a wide dating pool to investigate. The point is there is someone out there for you, no matter what your religious affiliation, and Christianity is no block to finding a mate. In fact many people find having the same ideals, like faith, is a good foundation for a lasting meaningful relationship.
Have faith, single Christian, your ideal partner is out there, and Christian dating sites are an ideal way of helping you find them. Finding a partner on a Christian dating site puts your faith front and center in the qualities you both have and are looking for in a date.
Once you choose a Christian dating site, here are some things you can do to make your search easier. First, pray. You trust God with so much in your life, trust Him to bring the person that will be best for you into your life. Second, fill out the profile completely and honestly. Completely is important, as you want to give potential dates as much information before making their selection as possible, just as you want as much information as possible. Honesty is just as important as you don’t want to mislead anyone or waste your time attracting someone whose wants and needs don’t suit yours. Third, sit down and make a list of qualities you would like to find in a date. It’s easier to hit a target if you know what the target is, but be open to things you haven’t considered and make sure and prioritize your list by importance to you. Fourth, begin looking at the profile and comparing the people that interest you with your list. Read with an open mind and more importantly an open heart. Lastly, remember no one is perfect, including you, so give people that meet most, but not all, the items on your list a chance as well.
Finding a date as a Christian is like finding a date for anyone. The Christian dating sites will help but you have to put in the work to find the person God has in store for you. The search might take more than a minute but by choosing Christian dating sites, you will be doing your search in the right place. Take your time, do your homework, and read the profiles completely.
As well as keeping an open heart and mind, you need to keep an open spirit when looking for a Christian date, even on a Christian dating site. An open spirit will help you with any prompting from the man upstairs as well as steer you away from potential bad matches. You may be led to the path of temptation that would prompt you to choose bad matches, so tread with a careful mind. A Christian dating site such as the aforementioned ChristianCupid.com can be a great boon when looking for your other half as long as you keep your true values in mind. Faith is an important part of your life and with the right mate, it will be an important part of your relationship.
