Dating Options for Christian Singles

As a Christian, you understand that to visit bars, nightclubs, and many other worldly establishments is not the way for you to meet your mate. The people who hang out there may be nice, but they don't share the same values as you do. On the other hand, churches and Christian Singles groups are popular ways to meet and hook up with those who are of a like mind. So, what if you don't meet someone at a church or in a Christian Singles group? Well, consider meeting someone online. That's right, Christian Singles' sites are exploding in growth and I am going to tell you why!

Back in the 1990s when the internet really began to grow in popularity dating sites sprung up as people began to realize that the web presented an excellent way for total strangers to meet and date. Savvy companies took advantage of the growing legion of 'solitary singles' online by creating places where you could register, log on, and meet others. With fantastic success companies like Match.com took off and the masses were served. Copycat sites sprung up and the choices were plentiful.

Unfortunately, one segment of the Singles population did not fare well: Christians. The secrecy of the internet had many people registering claiming to be "Christian" when, in fact, they were not. Many pastors reported that congregants were falling into sinful behavior by participating on sites that were not that reputable.

So, Christian, what are you to do now? Well, a relationship expert by the name of Dr. Neil Clark Warren sensed the need and began to fill it. In 2000, Dr. Warren launched eHarmony, a site dedicated to helping Christians find each other.

What makes eHarmony so special? Well, if you were to register with this site you would quickly learn that it isn't a site that simply takes your name, a short profile, and your email address. Rather, you would fill out a lengthy questionnaire which measures the "29 dimensions" that are most important in relationship success. I won't bore you with going over all the dimensions; instead I will say that this questionnaire does something that no other Singles site can do: it basically chases away the pretenders and invites only the serious, motivated single to register. Hey, it does take effort to fill out the questionnaire...not many creeps would invest the time [or money!] to finish the task.

Warren claims that eHarmony has thousands of success stories. Whether that statement is true or not, it has opened up a way for Christian Singles to meet and marry that goes beyond what the church or the typical local singles group can offer singles. Indeed, some of the other sites are now modifying their practices to attract Christian Singles, so if the "29 Dimensions" deal of Dr. Warren's is too much for you, closely examine them to see if they can offer to you an alternative. It is a buyer's market for online singles... prayerfully consider the best choice for you!
