We must confess: when it comes to Christian dating, our goal is to help other Christian singles meet, mingle, date and marry singles of the faith.
And Christian is a Christian dating service geared towards the dating needs of today's religious singles. Similar to other niche online dating websites, Christian has thousands of active personality profiles filled out by Christian singles looking for love, romance, relationships and marriage.
Is it possible we are being too picky, looking for the fairy-tale prince or princess, and by doing so, limiting the possibilities of what God may know is best for us and which we have not yet considered?
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.
Internet dating is currently the most popular alternative way to meet singles. There are secular dating websites that allow you to limit your search to Christians, and they (like the Christian sites) often let you specify the denomination you are looking for as well. (Please note that Got Questions Ministries does not personally endorse any particular secular or Christian dating service or site.) e Harmony is unique in that it uses an extensive personality test to provide customized matches to each person, though each user must only choose from the matches given to him or her—they cannot communicate with anyone they choose.
Most of the other sites (Christian and secular) provide various ways that men and women can quickly assess compatibility before beginning any form of communication.

Question: "Should a Christian use a Christian dating service to find a spouse?
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).
Unless we are rebelling against God, we can be sure that He is not punishing us through our singleness and that He is very likely bringing the right man or woman our way…eventually!
Today, singles are more on their own to find a mate.
