Question: "Should a Christian use a Christian dating service to find a spouse?" Answer: The Bible doesn’t talk about dating services.It is wise to plan a double date, so that a close friend can offer his or her opinion on this (let’s face it) complete stranger.Listen to your instincts and get away fast if you ever feel you are in any danger.Some singles don’t bother to look for a spouse, believing God will bring the person to them, while others are forever on a search for one, fearing they may miss him or her.There should be a balance, as we remember that God is perfectly loving (Ephesians ; 1 John -18) and perfectly sovereign over every situation, desire, and need (Psalm 1; Romans -39).For these people, it may be wise to consider other methods.
But others believe they are limited in the people they meet because of their profession, the size of their city, or the nature of their activities.
We can put ourselves in a position to meet other Christians by looking for a church singles group.
We may want to volunteer for a cause we care about or join other groups, being sure that we are doing it because we enjoy it, not just because we want to meet as many potential mates as possible.
(Please note that Got Questions Ministries does not endorse any particular Christian or secular dating service site).
One major downfall of internet dating is that you can never be sure who is being honest and who is pretending to be someone they’re not.
