What to Expect
How can I date someone who is attractive?
Okay, so you have interest in a person online and you would like to meet him/her. You already know that individual is a Christian, so how do you approach them?
Remember that you want to get to know the whole person, mind, body and spirit. The outside features are not as important as what this person carries inside. They may hold a shapely figure and attractive features, but what kind of attitude and spirit is dwelling within this person?
Hold your great expectations in check until you develop a relationship with them. Connect with the "inner person" of your newfound date. Each individual is different and many can be very complex.
Move slowly and reflect upon the person's emotional health and mental stability. What they hold inside is more important than the outside.
Find out about their work experience and career. What goals and aspirations they hold in life. Do they want to have lots of children or none at all at this time? What type of personality exists within, both socially and mentally?
There are many things to know about this person that only time can tell the story. Give them a good chance to find out about your own personality, lifestyle and character.
Christian leaders are saying...
As a follower of Jesus where do you find that right person, that one who is God’s will for your life? In the past as a Senior Pastor I have said, Find him or her in church. I still believe that but my definition of Church has expanded beyond four walls as I have become a friend and fan of Christian Mingle. God’s man for you ladies or God’s woman for you men may be in a church a thousand miles away; in the next city, or even in the same town. How do you find them? You log onto Christian Mingle.com and allow God to use this process to help you discover the person He has for you. Give God an opportunity to work through Christian Mingle.
