Christian Mingle’s membership recently crossed the 2 million mark.
It is also one of the few websites with roughly equal numbers of male and female members.
With the growth of the Internet and the online dating industry, the use of Christian dating sites is becoming ever more popular with people of the Christian faith.
Some sites even offer instant messaging and video chat.
Most sites typically require applicants to be at least 18 years old.
Read carefully the terms of the promotional period and make a note of when it expires so you don’t run the risk of getting billed for something you are not ready to use. Don’t let fear, doubt or other people’s opinions get in your way of what God has planned for you 2, Don’t assume anything about your potential date.
Take advantage of the trial period to see who the members are and whether there are any matches for you that you can follow up on. Ask lots of questions, then trust your instincts about whether to proceed to the next stage of communication 3.
Use Good Judgement While these sites market themselves as Christian Sites, there is no guarantee that any one person you meet will be a Christian or conduct their lives according to the Christian faith.
As in traditional forms of dating, good judgement and time will be required to find someone that is compatible with you.
For Christians, to have one partner in a relationship that is not “Equally Yoked” or falling out of the Christian faith is potentially devastating to the relationship.
Issues relating to communication, money management, child rearing and others become more difficult to reconcile. Some Christian singles who have not tried online dating services may be apprehensive at first about becoming a member of any online dating site.
An added benefit to joining these sites is that people that don’t fit the profile of a potential mate can turn out instead to be a great member of your bible study group or small group.
