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...
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.
