I have a question; I have been divorced and been single for 6 years.My children wants me to date and be happy.I have recently signed up on christainmingle.com.I found out they do not do a background check on single people who all say they are a christain.I have never been on,on line dateing before. Does anyone know about this?I’am alittle scared more concerned than anything.It could be my trust issue maybe.I’ve prayed about this alot and i don’t want to respond to anyman until i can find out more about this on line dateing.Been married twice and hurt both times. Please what do you know? Cheryl

Cheryl, the only way to know if someone is a Christian is to get to know them. I don’t think there is a screening process that would ease your concerns. I have done online dating and I have had both good and bad experiences. I used Christian Cafe and feel that most of the people I talked to were genuine in their faith. But we all still have issues and we should be careful. I feel meeting a person online is no different than meeting thme at the store or gym. It is just another way to connect. Use common sense, take it slow, and have some fun. Think of it as getting your feet wet again and making new friends.

I’m afraid of those online dating things. I’ve looked around at them and they are full of odd folks and I’m sure very nice folks but I’m still afraid.
