Why the very specific question on where Christian singles meet each other in Australia? Well, Christians Online does focus their attentions on Australian matches at present. But really, do you sometimes as a single start wondering where and how on earth they are supposed to find a nice guy or girl who is Christian? I know that I know quite a few guys that feel confused and upset since it just doesn’t seem to be happening for them.
The fact is that the way that Christian singles meet each other hasn’t changed so much over the years, even with the advent of computers and online dating sites. This doesn’t mean that there aren’t many others who have met and married singles that they have met online but since we can’t spend our lives in front of our computer screens your best chance is still out there in your workplace, your family and friend circles and at church. Some of the stats concerning the top ways that singles meet for dating, though are as follows: Friends/Relatives (65%); Online Dating (20%); Common Activities (10%) and Other (5%).
The truth is that I don’t know anybody that is going to have a relationship just fall into their laps without them being proactive about getting out there and actually doing something. Whether that something is attending church, engaging in hobbies or letting your cousin talk you into the 10th blind date this year, it is still an action that has to take place.
God is clear in that if we ask, it will be given to you. This doesn’t mean our faith isn’t stretched a little in the process, though. Perhaps you feel that by not doing anything, not stepping out of your comfort zone is somehow being submissive to God’s wishes but God is and always will be a God of action and we are to imitate Him in all things. If you seek you will find, and when you knock, the door will be opened to you.
However, this doesn’t mean that you should in any way look at how the world meets singles and follow them. You need to imitate God, and not man because the flesh is corrupt but God is perfect. The world may meet their partners at clubs, parties and other social events such as this where there is often drinking, smoking and a general lack of good judgement due to those other substances. If you are looking in this type of place, you will only find heartbreak because you will not find genuine Christian men and women in places like these.
Here are a couple of ideas of ways in which you can be proactive in your search for a potential Christian date without putting yourself into a position where you find yourself compromising your beliefs:
#1: Be open and honest about your feelings on being single
Don’t be embarrassed about looking for a partner, but let your friends and family know what you are looking for in a potential partner. They already probably have an idea that you are looking for someone but if you don’t want to go through countless awkward situations where your family throws you in the midst of men or women you are not interested in, be clear about what you want in a partner. Remember that if you don’t say what it is that you want, no one can assist you in helping spot a good relationship.
#2: Don’t get stuck in a rut
You may find that you are not finding a match because you are too comfortable where you are. If you have been in a certain situation, attending a certain church, and doing the same activities for any number of months or years and you still have not found anyone, chances are he or she is not just going to appear out of nowhere. You need to step out of your comfort zone. If you haven’t given online Christian dating a try, give it a go. You have absolutely nothing to lose. You can look in your local area and see if there are not perhaps other Christians battling to meet up with Christian singles that you otherwise wouldn’t have had a chance to meet…
#3: Do something new
Take up a new hobby that you have always wanted to do. By stepping out and finding a new circle that you can spend time in, you may find that you could meet the man or woman meant for you in this way. You could volunteer somewhere, take up a new hobby or sport or join a common interest group in your area. While taking the time to take care of yourself by making yourself happier pursuing your natural passions, you could very well find someone else who shares those passions with you.
#4: Don’t worry, Be Happy
Remember that other people are always attracted to someone who exudes a positive attitude. In keeping with this, God is in control and knows what you need. Know that He has your best interests at heart and wants to bless you and provide for you in every area of your life. God is faithful, it is a part of His nature and He has a plan for your life. Knowing that He is on your side must at the very least put a smile on your face.
We hope you meet your perfect match soon. Until then, trust God and God bless!
