It's a proven fact today that single Christians have a deep desire to connect with other singles. They're not only looking for their special soul-mate, but also want great friendships with other Christian Singles who are fun-loving and have similar interests. US, UK, and Canadian Christian dating are rapidly flourishing on the Internet dating scene today and more Christians are finding true love or friendship easily and more often than not it's free.
You may want to find the best Christian dating service, but there are many to choose from so how do you choose? If you're considering joining a Christian dating service online or even offline, there are a few things to think about.
You'll find a lot of dating services online. Some are quite huge with highly recognizable names and some have a Christian dating section. Many of the Christian dating services online have a million or more registered members. If you type in the word 'Christian' when you're setting up a profile on a non-Christian dating service it will tell you how many matches or possibilities there are for you should you decide to sign up at the end of your free trial.
Sign-up for free trials on as many websites as you can handle. Most of the dating services will let you see what men, women or teens over 18 are listed that you might be compatible with but won't let you email them until you're a member.
Many local Christian singles groups don't do any marketing or promotion and depend entirely on word of mouth by singles or church members to recruit new members. Call some of the church offices and ask if they have any singles groups. Look in the Yellow Pages under "Dating Services" and
"Singles Organizations" for your area. Give them all a call even if they're not listed as Christian and ask if they have a Christian division. And if they don't, they may be very willing to refer you to potential competitors.
Read the matchmaking contract or dating service contract carefully. Make sure you're not signing a contract for a specific period of time that you can't get out of in the event you find someone or want to quit. Make sure to go over your personal profile carefully because this will be the only image your potential dating partners will have to go on, besides your photo, if you've submitted one. You might have someone you trust go over the profile with you and give you some honest feedback. Is it spelled correctly? Can you make it sound appealing? And if a dating service has only a small membership, a large share of them may not be in your age range or could be the wrong gender.
Make sure to check out your local area and the closest large town or city to see if they have any Christian singles groups. Keep in mind that if you're looking for orthodox Christian dating services or specialty agencies like Catholic, Chinese, Hispanic or teen dating services - all of these may be harder to find and you're more likely to find these dating services, agencies or networks in larger cities like New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles and Seattle, for example, or some of the large cities in Europe.
Whether you're looking for a more casual relationship, or something more serious and leading to marriage, now is the time to start. So make sure to check out some of the dating websites today. There are many advantages to free online Christian dating services for committed Christians rather than non-Christian services because these sites simply understand the needs of single Christians. There are some excellent Christian dating advice books by well-established Christian authors too. Most of these books are inexpensive and available through your local or online Christian bookstore.
