Christian Dating Service

by Jessica Cuccioli

At first, I was very skeptical about Christian dating services. If you are looking for something general in a Christian dating service, there are almost too many out there. But if you are like most people who are searching for something specific, there are some things you should consider before looking. If you do, you just may find the perfect one.

What most Christians look for in a Christian dating service

The first concern I noted in people looking for a place to meet others of the same beliefs, is safety. Most Christians just want a safe environment in which they feel they can open up and share their faith with, and hopefully in doing so, meet someone in the process.Safety can mean different things to different people, especially when it comes to online dating. Some want to be safe from fraudulent people while others may want to protect their privacy.Many online Christian dating services are part of a bigger dating service website. "So?" you say. "What's the big deal? I'm looking in the Christian dating services they offer."Well, with some dating websites, it may not be a big deal. But if you are one of those looking for something specific, those websites may not be for you.

Christian dating services: general vs. specific

A general online Christian dating service may be interdenominational (Baptist, Methodist, Lutheran, etc.), or even be multi-religion (Christian, Catholic, pagan, Jewish, etc.) This is good in that it brings people of different background and belief together and promotes tolerance. If you are looking for a penpal or a friendship with someone of a different belief, then these sites are perfect.

A specific online Christian dating service may also be interdenominational, but they will not be multi-religion. Many of these sites give you the option of looking for penpals, friendships, dating, or even marriage. Some Christian dating services are even geared only towards those looking for "the one." Overall, these are the websites you want to consider if you are looking for a relationship with someone who shares your beliefs.
