As a caution though, many use online dating not as a noble alternative to finding their spouse but rather a place to satisfy their mortal cravings.
The World Wide Web has become not only a place where we can connect with people, information and ideas quickly, but also a place where “wolves” can hide behind the cloak of a username and fabricated profile in sheep’s clothing. I have seen my elderly and widowed mother be an enticement to male suitors who want a capable and desirable caretaker along with intimate female companionship.
For instance, I have one gentleman who is interested but seems too focused on what he calls "chemistry." I am confused to say the least. With the hectic and often scattered lives many of us lead, online dating is a way to explore larger circles and discover those we would never otherwise meet.
I applaud you for your efforts to delve into this realm.
We are marrying later, marrying less, and those marriages are failing more often.
On one hand there’s Leslie Ludy who is totally against it and on the other hand we have Boundless who is very much in favor of it.I’ve never used online dating in my past, and personally have no current plans of using it in the future. If you are fully striving to trust in Him, rely on Him, and rest in Him, then I think the answer to your online dating question will become quite clear.I’ve talked through, thought through, and prayed through this topic and I don’t believe it’s the path for me. If you’ve ever thought about using online dating, I highly encourage you to think, pray, and weigh the pros and cons before ever getting online. I’ve heard several people (who’ve used online dating) say that online dating requires a lot of time. Just remember that God is bigger, mightier, and more amazing than you could ever imagine.These men lied about their ages, their locations, and their intentions.Then, I have friends who met their husbands online. Still, men prey on seemingly desperate women in order to get what they want. Go with a group if you are more comfortable with that.
