Whether you are 20, 40 or 60, the internet has changed the way we form romantic relationships.
In the past you met your partner through friends, at work or from socialising, now we meet people using apps, social media and dating websites.
We believe in empowering you to make the best choices by providing guidance and support to help you discover your best qualities and those of your potential partners throughout your search.
As with anyone you meet—online or offline—your sound judgment and instincts are necessary to protect yourself.
In addition, we want to arm you with a few simple, yet smart dating safety tips.
It’s Personal — Use your username as an initial “safety shield” while getting to know someone online. Keep Money in Pocket — Never send money to someone you meet online.
Don’t give out your address until you’re in an established, in-person relationship. If distance creates too great an obstacle to meet up in the near future, at least employ Skype to give you both a little face time. If anything sounds strange or unbelievable, ask questions. Beware of premature declarations of love or requests for sexy photos from your online crush.
If the person you met online is hesitant to meet in person and continues to make excuses as to why he/she can’t Skype with you, the relationship likely has no future — and something sketchy might be going on. If the person is defensive, you’re likely on to something.
The best relationships will last for years, so patience will pay off. Meet in Public — Arrange your own transportation to and from your date.
Nothing means more to us than your safety and satisfaction as you online date in the Christian Mingle community.
We manually review every profile and photo to make sure you’re meeting quality Christian singles.
I was walking on California's Stinson Beach in August 2009 when I struck up a conversation with a woman who seemed utterly delightful.
Captivated, I invited her to dinner at my house that evening.
