As a Christian before you dive head on into the world of online dating, it is very important that you prepare yourself for success and not just to have participated. The following strategy will help you kick off your search.
Clear your mind
The main reason, the one and only reason why you are going online to participate in online dating is to find a worthwhile partner. To clear your mind means having a mindset that you will get a partner from your endeavor.
Remove all negativity from your mind and be very optimistic that at the end of your search you will find the right partner. If you do not have the mind set for success you will unconsciously sabotage yourself and all your effort will be wasted.
Is online dating what a Christian should be involved in?
That is a question that is on the mind of many Christians. Most people believe that they should wait for God to deliver the right person to them on the alter already in a wedding gown or tuxedo. Sometimes that happens, but other times God is in the business of blessing effort…, show me your hands and I will bless them. Show me the effort you are taking to help yourself and I will assist you.
I believe that when you pray to God and make him a part of your quest, he will guide you and lead you to the person that is right for you
Is Christian online dating safe?
There is no denying the fact that the internet has made it easy for people of ill repute to show up in dating sites with a different set of agenda, but the fact remains that it is a very good medium to have access to and interact with a huge number of people from the comfort of your own home.
Most Christian online dating sites provide the necessary features to make it safe for you, but you must also be a responsible user. When setting up your profile never uses your real name, do not provide personal information like phone numbers, work or home addresses. Do not agree to a face to face meeting until you are comfortable with the person online. However, when you do decide to meet “offline” make sure you meet at a public place such as a coffee shop or park, and insist that you both bring a friend.
