Dating and mating in the secular world
Is it possible we are being too picky, looking for the fairy-tale prince or princess, and by doing so, limiting the possibilities of what God may know is best for us and which we have not yet considered?
A Christian woman should let the man take the initiative as the leader God made him to be.As in all decisions, we should ask God to direct us clearly.It can be difficult to meet single Christian men and women, especially if most of our friends have already married.Warnings aside, though, many happy Christian marriages have come out of internet dating.Professional matchmaking services are usually safer than internet dating, but are less popular, and don’t always have a very large pool of people to choose from.It is also wise to meet the person face-to-face before becoming too emotionally intimate via email communication.
When you do meet for the first time, do so in a public place—never allow them to drive you anywhere or take you somewhere where you will be alone.
Question: "Should a Christian use a Christian dating service to find a spouse?
" Answer: The Bible doesn’t talk about dating services.
It is wise to plan a double date, so that a close friend can offer his or her opinion on this (let’s face it) complete stranger.
Listen to your instincts and get away fast if you ever feel you are in any danger.
In fact, it doesn’t even tell us how to “date” or “court,” or whatever term we use for the process we use to get to know a potential mate.
