This process has made me aware that women are often more accepting of age than men are.By the fourth step in the process, I was halfway through the first month of my subscription. This issue is not applicable purely to online Christian dating, of course, but these dating sites, I’m learning, are often where men with this sort of outlook end up.As my London girlfriends and I started trying out exclusively Christian dating sites, such as Christian Connection, Christian Cafe and Christian Crush, the line ‘Faces that only their mother would love’ was whispered among the three of us. While many Christians have found long-term love through Christian dating sites, I’ve also heard stories of the same Christian men existing on these sites for years. Online dating creates naturally (and thankfully) more options than our local town may provide, which can catalyse the desire to be fine-tuned and higher in goal-setting – and that’s where all this gets interesting.And too many had clearly not left the house for a while.It began to appear that choosing the ‘spirituality is important’ option was a limitation. And why wouldn’t e Harmony let me search through the men registered for myself?
