    Dating Service

    I have a question. If I were to create a dating site service (Christian dating of course), with webcam chats, regular chats, instant messegner chats, multiple photo per profile capabilities, private messaging, emailing, ratings, worldwide searches, and other great features how much would you pay maximum per month for this service?

    I am talking about a high-end dating service, very user-friendly, colorful, bright, rich in features, fast loading (including searches), etc.

    I am thinking of starting one. Just looking for ideas and a little survey so t to speak. What ideas do you have for a dating site? What would you like to see that you have not on the other dating sites?

    well i for one can't afford to pay for anything extra above my normal household bills, and other dating services usually cost more than it is worth, it is very difficult to find someone to match your own personality and likes and dislikes. Unless you had a very large database full of people to choose from..

    I believe Christianmingle or singleC.com has a lifetime membership for 59.00. I think I will join after my 10 day free trial membership. It sounds like a good deal.

    Maybe you should pray about this. I just came across this thread, and it's prolly old, but you know me, like to give my opinion.
    I think that dating service would be ok for those who do that. I'm not against it or anything, just sayin.
    But yes, it should be a pure spotless place for pure spotless people to GET TO KNOW one another. You know, not any matchmaking quizzes or n e thing acause God is the only matchmaker, and He only knows our true soulmate!

    This will be a fulL Christian "soulmate" dating service NOT secular, worldly dating style. It will be a worldwide penpal club as well. It will be as unique as possible, colorful vibe/atmosphere, Christian oriented 100% (can't stress it enough), nice flash animation, live chat (prayer room), video chat (moderated 24/7), full extensive profiles including video/audio intro per member, mini autobiography, photo ablums per member (moderated as well).

    This by GOD's will, will be NOTHING like you've seen before, even the secular "nice" ones.

    I think the word that sticks out the most in this , is , Dating . A great Christian fellowship for singles is a great idea . Go for it Chad ! The world offers nowhere for Christian singles to go or fellowship . That's why we have so many unequally yoked marriages . Just beware of the foolish married men who venture onto these sites , only to leave a woman hurt and confused . Mike

    thumbs up

    I think it is a great idea as having met my true love here young Christians often find it hard to get a place where they can meet like minded pure folk who they can have a relationship. Many would be willing to pay a price I believe as long as it is affordable and an optional extra to the existing free services.

    I know for a fact that there is a need for this in the world as many so called dating services are sleasy, exploitive and sometimes not living up to their claims.

    as Brother in Arms has said, go for it :). I have found with myself and my beloved that it can be difficult to meet in a spare room in chat or talk in private as others sometimes want to talk when we only want to chat so the service would be of use.

    God bless and all the best

    Question: "Should a Christian use a dating service to find a spouse?"

    Answer: There are obviously things about which the Bible is "silent". That does not mean that born again believers cannot find answers to questions that deal with our situations. We may use a process called "reasoning from Scripture", which simply means that we take principles found in God's Word and use them to apply to our specific questions. Since there were no "dating services" other than arranged marriages in Biblical times, we must look to the Word for principles. We do not find our modern terms in the Bible and that is an important distinction. The Bible does not operate on worldly terms or viewpoint but on God's viewpoint (2 Peter 2:20).

    In our society, where morals are relaxed and people live together and cohabit before marriage that makes it difficult to "shut the door after the horse is out". The world has cheapened the relationship between men and women and relegated it to the status of a sport. What is acceptable in the world is not acceptable to God. Sexual immorality and fornication are one in the same and the Bible is very clear that it is sinful behavior. "18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body" (1 Corinthians 6:18). "4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge" (Hebrews 13:4). The principles presented here apply to all but let us remember that these Scriptures are written to believers for instruction. The word "judge" has the idea to judicially distinguish or to subject to censure. Therefore, to the born again believer it does not speak of salvation but of the judgment of works done in the flesh. Choices have consequences.

    So then, should born again believers use a dating service? We can safely say that the answer, from a Biblical standpoint, would be no. Why, because it behooves believers not to use the world's methods. The best screening that a believer could make to determine one to date is whether or not that person is of the same spiritual mind; that is if they are born again of the Spirit of Christ. "3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed" (Amos 3:3)?

    The pure relationship between a husband and wife is modeled after the relationship of Christ and the "church", which is His body here on earth (Ephesians 5:22-33). That relationship is the closest one ordained of God outside of our spiritual union with Christ and therefore it should be treated with the reverence and gravity that it rightly deserves and not used lightly or entered into on the basis of the fact of being matched by a worldly dating service. Therefore, when born again believers are seeking a mate that is "well pleasing" to God we should keep ourselves pure in mind and body, pray for God's will, wait upon the LORD and don't "look for love in all the wrong places"!
