the christ service are no longer taboo among Christian singles for the simple reason that each year, the percentage of singles using these sites keeps increasing. What’s the reason for the rise in use of Christian dating services? The answer is really simple: Many Christian singles are meeting their dating matches online.
There are many benefits of using Christian dating services. Here are just a few:
Christian Dating Service Use Give You More Choices
Don’t laugh, but one person I know compares going to a Christian dating site to taking a trip to Haagen-Daz or Baskin Robbins: You have your choice of almost any flavour you wish. Yummy!
Seriously, though, due to the large number of single women and men using Christian dating services, a single Christian has a much larger number of potential dates and mates from which to make a choice.
A Christian Dating Service Allows Targeted Searches
Somewhat related to the ice cream analogy (by the way, Mint-Chocolate-Chip is my favourite; oh wait, or is it Chocolate-Chip-Mint?), the large search databases of some dating online sites like Christian Mingle, now Relationships.com allows Christians dating online to “put in their order” using such variables as age, denomination, vocation, race, appearance and the local area of where one wants to find potential soulmates. Best of all, your potential dating match is also looking for the same thing.
Joining a Christian Dating Service Saves Time
A Christian dating service can save time for busy singles (like Christian single parents, etc) who don’t have the time or energy to find a date in more traditional ways. Single Christians who turn to a Christian dating service have the convenience of meeting someone out of the comfort of their own homes, 24/7. And let’s be real, with the average size of the typical evangelical church hovering at around 90 souls, the pickin’s are generally slim at best. And how much time have you spent primping yourself to go out to singles activities only to be disappointed at the close of the evening?
A Christian Dating Service Develops Communication Skills in Daters
Speaking with other single people on a Christian dating service helps you hone your conversational skills. It’s also an excellent chance to express true thoughts via Christian chatrooms, email and instant messaging, without feeling awkward as one could in person. By the time the Christian dating site couple finally does meet, they will be much more comfortable with each other, having laid down a strong emotional foundation.
Recently, I read some of the romantic letters President John Adams wrote his wife, Abigail. when they were separated by 100s of miles. In those days there were no telephones, and pony-delivered mail took days to get to its destination. But oh, the beauty, passion and depth of those letters! Okay, we’re not in Colonial America, and I may be a romantic idealist, but communicating through an online Christian dating site can help singles experience a little of this magic.
