Let’s Talk About the Pros and Cons of Online Dating for Christians

It is amazing to see how the online dating world has quickly embraced Christian dating with so much of excitement. The virtual online meeting place offered by the dating community all over the world  has naturally evolved  as a perfect setting to meet like-minded individuals, and helped to embark upon a happy and rewarding relationship between Christian singles .

The good part about online dating is that many obstacles to your initial nervousness get removed and the online process itself helps surpass  the barrier of “breaking the ice’ between two people who come in contact online. In short the setup,  your initial teething problems, extra time, and friends chatter get automatically removed. But despite this, don’t make the mistake of thinking that online dating for Christians can be easy.

The truth is whether it’s online or offline, searching for a desirable partner, enabling a lifelong friendship and nursing that relationship into a bond which has the potential for  a lasting marriage takes a lot of good work. The following inputs for men and women are designed to help Christians to be more effective and purposeful before pursuing online dating

Why online Christian dating  is the preferred option
Various Christian singles from both men and women have revealed that  the online dating method is more comfortable, convenient and efficient compared to offline methods. While offline methods may be good to get going for a start and before you go on the internet, people have realized that  Christian online dating is both convenient and helpful because you can scan through an extensive database of other Christian singles 24×7 in the cushioned comfort of your own home and at a time slot or space which you can decide for yourself. Similar  people being on the same platform makes it easier for you to search and locate such people who may be looking for the same qualities and people as yourself. All you need to do is type your criteria in the search box and find new friends in the most simplistic manner.

How much would it cost you
Depending on the services and facilities that you may need with your account, membership fees for online Christian dating may vary from  10 dollars to 100 dollars a month. The reputation of the site and the database of members that the site has besides the testimonials of successful Christian dating people on the site also has a bearing on the price. It is always better to first take the trial memberships if offered on such sites so that you can get a feel of what potential the site has to offer you and subsequently you could opt for the paid memberships.

What precautions should you take while dating online
Being online, the world is a virtual world and you should accept that reality. You could well be connecting with bogus people especially if you are dating with the free dating sites where such mischief is often played by scamsters. Also profiles of prospective dating profilecan be misleading and may be manipulated to give a picture of Mr Perfect or Miss Charming.You should therefore be careful not to divulge your personal information until you get to know the person well online and also until you actually meet the person and get to know about him or her.

There could always be issues of secrecy on factors such as  marital status, educational qualifications, previous history, health related issues, financial standing and other such personal data which could be far from the truth.

However for the good part, statistics have revealed that one in 7 couples who encounter online go ahead towards a long term dating relationship which is actually a good conversion ratio considering that a single person could be choosing one from many dating options available  and eventually decide to link up with one of them.

Give your partner due honor and respect
Showing respect and honor to the opposite Christian single is the hallmark of a good Christian dating relationship and as Christians, we should always endeavor to nurse a relationship which has mutual respect written all over it. Treating your Christian single partner with respect automatically strengthens your Christian values and you become a messenger of Christianity for the world to see and follow. Each Christian has to give his own contribution to build the faith of Christianity and together we build our reputation as Christians to the whole world . So endeavor to be  friends with your Christian single first. God will then reward your friendship with the love if you so desire.

You can choose to use both online and offline methods of dating to get to your goal of securing the right partner for yourself. Just keep in mind that developing a good Christian friendship and taking it ahead towards love and matrimony should be your way forward in this world where everyone is seeking a partner not knowing that it is easy if you allow good Christian values to envelop you.
