As online dating continues to increase in popularity, many people might wonder how to meet Christian single online. Christian online dating isn’t much different from any other kind of online dating. There are a few things to keep in mind. The ultimate thing to remember is that with any online dating, your eventual goal should be to meet the singles you have found in a safe, friendly, real-world environment.
Things you will need:
- A computer with internet access
- A digital camera (or current pictures of yourself in digital format)
- Money for site subscriptions (optional)
- Join an online dating service. The best way to meet online Christian singles is through an online dating service. There are many dating sites to choose from that are meant only for Christians. On some sites you have to buy a subscription. Before joining any site, you should check out reviews. You should also check how many active users there are.
- Create your profile. Many sites have a question section that helps build your profile for you. If the site you pick doesn’t, there are a few key things you might want to put on your profile: your preferences in a mate, what specific religion you are, if you attend church, your level of faith and your tolerance for other Christian-based religions.
- Put up a picture. A lot of people are nervous about putting up a picture, but to effectively find other singles in your area, this is a must. Make sure your picture is a current picture of yourself. Some people find they wish to declare their faith in their photo as well. While this can be fine, keep in mind not to go too over the top or it’ll make your profile appear comical.
- Review other profiles and send out messages. Also respond to any messages you get. Only send messages to those people who you feel you will be compatible with. Some people will choose to do the same when it comes to responding to messages, while others feel the need to at least send a note stating they are not interested but this is up to you. When sending a first message to someone, try to not make it too long. Short and to the point is best.
- Try not to dwell on faith after contacting or being contacted by other singles. While faith maybe a very important part of your life, it is not the only aspect of your personality. Be sure to touch on other interest to give the person a clear view of who you are.
- Arrange a meeting. After a few messages for comfort and determining if you are compatible with the other person, you should arrange a meeting. This should be done in a public place where you are both comfortable.
