Is online dating ok for christians
I find it more natural to meet at an event or short holiday – I would want to see how a man interacts with others of both sexes there!' Some people commented on the difference between a dating site that is Christian and one that is not.Some commented that they experienced they became 'judgemental' in selecting or not selecting people with whom they might begin an online conversation. Plus the potential for disappointment when eloquent writers fail to match that with conversation.' Most of the specific comments covered the desire to meet more face to face, in events, Christian holidays and so on.They expressed that it was more natural to meet in person, or for eyes to meet across a room.In other words, they applied 'Christian' as an adjective to the dating site itself, rather than to those who are intended to use it.Although there were not many comments in this area, respondents focused on two areas: Within a generally positive view (which one would expect given the survey sample), eight had expectations that a Christian dating sites might filter out some members, for example those that lie and separated or divorced (3 people).Fifteen said they preferred to meet Christians on non-Christian sites, because of: 'I found that there was a lot of passivity on these sites in comparison to non-Christian sites where men will initiate contact and make it clear if they are interested or not.The Christian sites tend to reflect the same problems of the Church.' There were also suggestions for additional functionality.
Some expressed concern people were there to form relationships, others rejoicing in the intentionality to do so.
Sometimes they have very lively debates going on.''Online dating is great!
I think it's much better for meeting people than in church – there's a level of intentionality that often doesn't exist in other Christian settings and people online have often given much more thought to what they are looking for, which makes for some very positive connections and a fun dating experience.''I also am aware that what I think I want isn't necessarily what I need...
I think people on the Christian sites are not serious in their search for a marriage partner, they seem to be more interested in using the site to widen their group of friends and acquaintances.
I no longer use the site but look at the discussion boards.I want to tell them not to apply for any jobs next time they are unemployed, because if God means them to have a job, they can just [sit] in the house and wait for him to bring them one!
