The difficulties of meeting Christian singles
This may be a small matter for some but for Christian singles who want a faith-filled partnership, it's a vital difference, and one that adds to the challenge of finding a partner who you trust shares the same values. This difficulty is enhanced by the fact that not all church-going Canadians are suitable date material: in truth, many of those who do attend church are already in relationships, married or in significantly different age brackets.
my partner’s faith is the most important aspect when considering who I date
- Rebecca Vandemark, Christian blogger
Rebecca Vandemark (33) is one Christian single who knows first hand the difficulties involved with faith-based dating. Indeed, Rebecca, who says that “my partner’s faith is the most important aspect when considering who I date,” thinks that part of the challenge of Christian dating is that the “church is not equipped to handle singles over the age of twenty-five.”3
Christian dating: easier online?
Yet, it is possible to find romantic success on the Christian dating scene, no matter what age or romantic background you are from. You can meet someone who shares your passion for God’s word and His love - you just have to look in the right place. And, for many Canadians, that right place is online, with dating sites like EliteSingles.
Christians should look online for dates…because that’s where the people are!
- Janelle Paris, social anthropologist at Messiah College
Indeed, a surprisingly large percentage of Christian singles are turning to the internet to find a long-term, spiritually-connected partner. In the words of Jenell Paris, social anthropologist at Messiah College; “Christians should look online for dates…because that’s where the people are!”4 That's because online dating is an excellent way for Christian singles to take the reins when it comes to romance. Not only does the creation of a personalized profile allow a chance to be upfront about the importance of God in one’s life, dating sites create a space where religious singles can actively seek someone who has similar priorities.
