While we’re huge proponents of using the online realm to find faith-focused love, there are some challenges you should be aware of. The key to having success dating online as a Christian single is fully understanding the process, so you can be prepared.
- It’s not a magic solution. – Some people think that all they have to do is sign up for a Christian dating app and they’ll find the man or woman of their dreams in five minutes without putting in any effort. This isn’t the case. While online dating apps are incredibly effective, you still have to do your part. This includes things like fully filling out your profile, sending out messages, responding to singles who show interest in you and being patient with the process.
- Not everyone online is a Christian. – If you choose a more mainstream dating app (which is totally fine), you’re going to be on a dating app with people who aren’t Christians. And if your faith is important to you, you’ll have to be prepared to tell people who don’t share the same views on God that you’re not interested. If you’re not firm in your religious convictions, this could be a challenge when you start to get some attention.
- Not everyone is at the same point in their Christian walk. This really isn’t a drawback by any means, but it’s something we want to mention. Be prepared to meet Christian singles at all different points in their walk.
