Whats so bad about online dating
I don’t say the words out loud that “God can’t work through the Internet,” but if you want to get technical, that’s kind of exactly what I’m saying when I differentiate between online dating and “real life.” And for someone who works for an Internet ministry, well, that’s sort of obnoxious. Have I truly given Him permission to show up in my profile and in my messages?
Have I been gracious with the men I meet, trusting in God, open about my faith and desires and expectations? If I don’t know what I want, how can I expect these men to know?
According to Ok Cupid’s blog, “Site-wide, two-thirds of male messages go to the best-looking third of women.” That means high competition and less chance of success. There’s a niche dating network for everything these days.
The way I see it, I have a responsibility to be honest about what I want and need and about what I am capable of. I know I am not the best version of myself online, but I find it easy and a joy to show who I really am and get to know others in person.
I am more forgiving when things don’t go exactly how I’d like, I’m more trusting, and I’m more willing to give credit and glory to God, too.
I’m finally having an honest conversation with myself about dating, and I’m ready to invite God to be a bigger part of the conversation.
The fact that you’re here means you’re on your way to sucking less.
