Online dating advice for christians


When it comes to online dating, always be a skeptic.Remember that things are not as they seem to be- but rather, as they actually are.Seek dating advice from a mature Christian you respect.Chances are there is someone—a pastor, mentor, teacher—whose perspectives and opinions you hold in high regard.Jenna voiced a common concern among single Christians looking for a lifelong partner: “My spiritual beliefs and values often make dating a very risky pursuit.I’ve been set up with guys—even ones who know I’m a Christian—who expect me to go along with their lifestyle choices: sex, drugs, excessive drinking, and the rest.Other times, guys find out I’m a Christian and automatically assume I’m uptight and judgmental.The stereotypes get old.” Of course, the problems don’t disappear when Christians choose to date only other Christians.



Again, it was Solomon who said, “He who walks with the wise grows wise” (Proverbs ).Statistics show that almost 1/3 of couples getting married in this generation have met their significant other by way of the internet.There is no denying that our world has changed drastically over the past decade, and we are now immersed in a culture that is rooted in the internet and social media.Just as God used the cultural components of ancient biblical days to guide people to finding love (dowries, arranged marriages, and the like), He uses our cultural context to work out his will in our lives today.

So let go of your apprehension about “not waiting on God” if that’s your hang up.

Good counsel is available to you if you’ll ask for it.
