It reminds me of a cartoon I saw once, where a group of people are in a web cafe, each surfing the Net.
One of them is saying to himself, “I’m so lonely.” I know that when I moved to a big city in my early 30’s, I found it hard to connect with local Christian singles at various churches.
Or, they have singles outreaches for the 20-something crowd and early 30’s, but they don’t have anything for those over 40. But, thank God that there are some ways to connect online. A lot of this is plain ignorance (if I can use that word in a factual way).
Part of the issue is simply creating awareness, not only to educate churches and ministries, but also to let Christian singles know.
Unfortunately you then have some un-Godly companies targeting Christians, but not telling them who they are. When you buy a membership on their site, you are inadvertently funding pornography.
There are plenty of other sites people could go to.
Sure, some of us are called into singleness for life, but that is very few of us.What are your thoughts about this online phenomenon? But, I do believe online dating is a great tool and has been for so many couples.» In the years that we have been online, we’ve had over two million Christian singles join Christian Cafe.com, mostly from the US and Canada.» From a business point of view, the online dating business is worth over a billion dollars annually in the US.The secular world is sitting up and taking notice there are all these single Christians out there.
