The Christian sites tend to reflect the same problems of the Church.' There were also suggestions for additional functionality.
Like any tool or service, people find a variety of ways to use a dating service.
how it feels to be single, how to support singles, stupid things not to say, etc.
Difficult though, because those who need to hear it won't listen!
Takes a lot of energy and courage.''I have personally been selective about who I have told, because some Christians I know disapprove and think that if it's God's will, it should happen without us being pro-active like that, especially as a woman…
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!
'I used another site and was attempted to be scammed three times, by men pretending to be Americans or Europeans working abroad, Christians, or working in the UK.
I contacted the website, no response to any of my concerns.''I have but I find that there is very little difference between the type of man you meet on Christian [or] non-Christian sites.
Some said that they had made good friends through dating services (an option that is presented in many), some disappointed that they hadn’t found a relationship but only friends. It takes too much time and effort with little fruition. (The usual Christian obsession with marriage rearing its head again.) What's wrong with looking for a girlfriend?!If, for example, it was to meet friends and that had been successful, then there is a different response to someone hoping to meet a marriage partner but was still looking.'Seems to be the real dilemma between getting teaching in churches that suggests God has a plan for your life (including a possible partner) and then we need to wait on Him versus dating websites where you need to try and 'sell' yourself to potential candidates.' There were some comments about a shopping mentality and that selecting people to approach was choosing by appearance. Didn't like the person I became, 'boy shopping' based on photos and a few stats.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.''It's great that this is becoming more acceptable.
