Cons about online dating
Over time I soon noticed that many on this site who claimed to be Christian were not necessarily so, and that there was a real need to test the spirits (1 John 4:1). After all, God says there are weeds mixed in with the wheat in the Church (Matt. But it took me time to realize, and after I did, I had a lot of online correspondence with people on the site trying to warn them to be careful and not trust every site or person who claimed to be “Christian.” During my first paid term on the site I met a dear sister in the Lord.
They have built their marriage on this and the promises of God’s infallible word.
While our relationship didn’t go any further, our correspondence and encouragement continued until one day she informed me that the Lord had led her to a godly man she had begun to court.
They soon got engaged too, and shortly after I opened my snail mail to find a wedding invitation.
I have the patience to find the right guy, online dating is for the impatient. I’m not in a hurry to fall in love but I do like messaging back and forth and having casual conversation with a guy because there’s no pressure if we both just want to have a little fun via txt. Personally I find them to be a bit frustrating, as there is no real “buy in” or connection made.
I have a few dating apps (Grindr, Jackd, Scruff, etc)…and often I find that conversation can be fast and furious at the inception, but quickly dies off when anyone mentions meeting for a drink in person.
