2016 church dating sites

22 Nov

I had stipulated on my profile that I’m looking only for men over the age of 28.

I’m not sure what I’m more perturbed by – that OKCupid set me up with a woman, or the fact that she was into video gaming.

But I was slightly disappointed with the options I was being given: too old, too young; too invested in believing in ‘the one’ rather than the best ones.

Too many were divorced and didn’t sound like they were healed from the last marriage.

By end of week two, I had 62 ‘reasonable matches’ (people who were more than a 60% match).

But this only happened because I extended the distance range to the whole of the US. With the men I did take a shine to, it felt like we had to take exams before we could actually obtain contact. Some of them may well have later fled to the Internet in the hope they’d find their wife: soft in character, tall, with model looks, joker, non-smoker, prays in tongues at least 45 minutes a day, preferably a virgin, never confronts but isn’t a pushover... I appreciate the need to have standards when it comes to finding a life partner, but not when we’re unwilling to look at ourselves, or the fear so clearly attached to so many requirements.

Enter online dating: engines asking you more questions than an inquisitive 6-year-old.

She has nice pink hair’, I reply.team, I agreed to experiment in trying to find love in the cyber world, with all its personality filters: lawn game champion, marathoner, political junkie, health nut, zombie survivalist, tree-hugger, vegan, die-hard carnivore, non-believer in cologne (or deodorant), and finally, but importantly for me, just how much are you a Christian – really?I also roped in two girlfriends based in London, who are also single, and in their 30s.They agreed to take on the world of online dating from home in the UK.I would sign up to both secular and exclusively Christian websites, both paid and free, adding in the latest craze of ‘hook-up’ dating apps.On every dating site or app I tried, I would clearly state that I was a Christian, and that spirituality was ‘very important’ to me.
