Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. - Psalms 37:4

Making a Connection

When do I get to view other singles ads?

After you have gathered all the information on the dos and don'ts of setting up your own profile, you can begin looking at other profiles.

One of the advantages of connecting online is that you get a better sense of how well personalities and life situations compliment each other. This is even before you get to meet a prospective dating partners.

Viewing other single profiles is like viewing a job resume for a potential job applicant. Only this resume is for a potential date. We now have the understanding of what to look for in other single profiles and what to be aware of.

By understanding what is required in our own personal profile, we can relate to what positive information to look for in the potential dating partner's profile.

E-mail exchanges provide you with the opportunity to pay close attention to what the other person is communicating and the impression they have already given you, through their dating profile.

Eventually, the face-to-face interview will be even more revealing, in order to project if this person is a good Christian match for you.

After you have looked over their profiles and like what you see, you begin facilitating a conversation through e-mail.

I am trying to find a good husband/wife to marry, where do I look?

Be truthful and positive as you put together your profile. Saying what you want, instead of what you do not want, can be done in a positive fashion. Example: "I am not a drinker, so I want someone who has similar tastes."

On the other hand, use humor to adopt a more clever way to say something. Humor tends to lighten the load when trying to get a point across without sounding negative. Show confidence and self-assurance at every stage. When describing yourself in the profile, use specific language that accurately says what you may look like.

Most sites have a form that you can fill out your physical features. In spite of how you see yourself, just be specific and straight forward. "I have brown hair, blue eyes and an athletic build.

Be honest, don't try to deceive anyone and you will be rewarded for your efforts with someone who loves you just as you are. People appreciate honesty more than anything else does. By being honest, you will have no surprises or nothing to hide later. If you are looking for a friendship before having a serious relationship, then say so. If you are looking for a serious relationship right off the bat, then say what you want. If you prefer tall men to short guys, then say so. You will get what you desire and get the kind of responses you are looking for.

Nobody wants to be disappointed or tricked. In addition, be specific in laying out what you want in a Christian match.

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.
