Christian dating bad
With all of these different perspectives, we can’t help but wonder, should we consider online dating or not?
As a twenty-nine-year-old unmarried Christian woman, I’ve done my fair share of reading, praying, and thinking through how to best honor God in the area of romantic relationships.
I don’t say this to brag, but to prove a point: even with those impressive statistics, not one of those dates bloomed into a relationship. Values and morals were confused, purity was optional, strangely intense pressures to marry came from every direction, and struggles with substance and sexual addictions all suddenly became issues that I had never considered would be points of conflict.
I went to a Christian school, and the extent of our sex-ed was: “don’t have sex”.
It offers personality, religion, and preference matches. Going online requires you to fork over a bunch of personal information. Online dating gives the users the chance to put their best foot forward and keep the ugly in the back.
I’ve decided to boil all of that information down into this one teeny-tiny blog post.
She and her older sister were inspired to start a blog (
Girl Defined.com) and wrote a book Girl Defined: God’s Radical Design for Beauty, Femininity and Identity.
Their passion is to help young women find God’s truth about beauty and womanhood and the freedom that comes from living a radically different life for Christ.
If I had to put a number to it, I’ve been asked out roughly 60 times in the last 7 years by about 40 men.
