    To me personally, I think online dating is totally wrong for a Christian girl.

    • Val

      If I may ask, why?

      • Mele

        As a Christian, going on dating sites to find a perfect match, will cause you to trust God less. Its also a compete waste of time and some people can lie about who they are.

        • Val

          I don’t think that the use of online dating shows lack of trust, because the website doesn’t provide you with a spouse, just with the occasion to meet more guys, like a party or a church event would, then it is up to God.

    • Em Nelly

      My boyfriend and I met online. We both were Christian and new to the area we lived in. One of our first dates was finding a new church together, and we did! We are still together and have a Christ-centered relationship. Online dating is great when used for the right reasons. You still trust God in that He will provide in that way. To say you will not try online dating as a Christian girl closes you off to so many possibilities God may have for, in my opinion. It is not anti-Christian to online date, but can expand you spiritually if you filter your matches.

        Thanks Em Nelly. I get where you’re coming from.

  • Jamie

    This feels like a cult.

  • Lonie

    This was a great vlog. I was wondering… how do you share these concepts with a friend who hasn’t thought of the ‘pros and cons’? I think it’s wise to consider both sides of the issue, and am concerned about friends who don’t. Any advice?
