Are dating sites safe for Christians?
There are potential dangers when dating online, so it’s very important to recognize how you can avoid them. Firstly, when you get in touch with someone, it’s often easy to tell whether they’re a real person and if they have a genuine photo. Lookout for this and be aware in case they are a potential scammer.
Make sure that the person you’re speaking to is pushing themselves across in a genuine way and giving you genuine information too. Consider using a quality dating site that requires information from you to join. They may need to verify you so that they know that you are who you say you are. Also. It might be important to note whether they ask you about your faith or your denomination, etc.
These are all very important factors to lookout for. And if you do go on a date with someone that you’ve met online and it doesn’t feel quite right, there are things that you can do. Firstly, do not meet someone in their home. That you have met online and do not welcome them into yours. When meeting for the first time, meet outside in an open space.
If you happen to go to a restaurant together and it doesn’t feel quite right and the person doesn’t seem to be who they say they were. You can most likely speak to one of the restaurant staff members and they should be able to help you arrange transport to leave. You should never be made to feel uncomfortable and there is always something you can do. Be cautious, be aware, but if in doubt, step out.
