How Can Men be Good Christian Mates?
In order for a match to find you, you must become a good man. Every Christian woman is looking for a good man who will shower her with love, kindness, gentleness, protection, security and total respect. To find a mate online, single men must learn to love like Jesus. Study and abide in I Cor 13:4-8. Learn about how to love. Most men have never learned how to love fully.
The bible says to pursue love, yet desire spiritual gifts. If you pursue true love, it will never fail you. Single males must make love the object of pursuit in your life, not just with a love interest, but with all others too. Learn the ways of love and romance.
How many pictures can I use?
Some sites allow you to add more than one photo. There are some things to consider when adding secondary photos. If you decide to add another photo, try to show at least one entire body shot from head to toe. This will give other singles a better view of what you look like from the neck down. Have a little fun with an activity shot. Activity shots are where others can see you participating in something you love. Maybe include your favorite pet in the picture. Vacation photos can be very nice, as they usually catch people when they are more relaxed.
What type of things should I put in ad?
Writing an online dating profile can be a tough task, but you should have fun while doing it. Online dating should be fun and carefree for you! Potential mates can pick-up on the tone of the individual writing the personal ad. Who wants to date someone who does not know how to have a good time? Proper English is good for formal writing, but remember to keep your writing, conversational and clear, not stuffy or formal. Stay positive and never be negative or overly sarcastic. Negative or sarcastic personals may lead readers to think you are a negative or smart-mouthed person. This can show you in a very bad light to other singles. It may be a good idea to get a trusted friend to review your profile before you post it. They can help proofread it and offer positive feedback, such as whether it sounds realistic. Friends can also help you decide on what pictures are best to use for your ad.
Should I bring others on my first date?
Although a date is meant for two people to get to know each other, sometimes a little added company can take the stress away on a first date. Try double dating! This is a safe way to start a first date. Double dating also gives your friends a chance to meet and and observe your date while in your company.
If you don't opt for a double date, it's still wise to let someone know where you are and what time you should be expected home.
Christian leaders are saying...
Before I was married, my life was dramatically impacted by the singles ministry at my church, which was designed to help committed Christians meet someone who shared the same beliefs and values. However, not all churches have that kind of ministry. ChristianMingle is like a virtual singles ministry- a safe place that likeminded singles can meet and forge friendships and dating relationships. It's a community that is digital, but nonetheless very real. As a social researcher and author focused on relationships, I am delighted that ChristianMingle exists, and provides such a great opportunity for God to bring people together.
