What has worked well for you to meet Christian Singles of the opposite sex ?

I am very curious to know if someone has found a good source for making new Christian Friends of the opposite sex ?

If you are a Christian Single, do you find it easier or harder to find a potential dating Partner now that you are in your 50's or 60's ?

Also, HOW lenient are you when it comes to Christian disciplines or lack thereof, in the other person ?

If you would like to comment on a relative issue in this thread, that would be nice also. Thanks for sharing .

1. CF is a lovely place to meet new Christian friends of both genders.

2. I am single and find it to be much easier to find a potential dating partner now.

3. I never have been lenient with myself or with others, which probably explains why I am still single.

Thanks for replying. What sources outside of CF have you found suitable and productive for meeting singles of the opposite sex who are Christian ?

It is not wise to make close friends with the opposite sex. Keep it superficial by being a nice acquaintance. If your a man and you tell this female friend your personal problems I guarantee all her relatives, friends and facebook buddies will here every detail.
A great way to meet future spouse is online christian dating sites. They do work. I found my wife through one of them. We are very happy.

..............
1. Then, before you married your wife from an online Christian dating site (as you indicated) , you didnt become close friends first ?

2. Doesnt ANY sort of an acquaintenceship, friendship, relationship run the risk of subsequent gossip resulting ?

3. Doesnt NOT making close friends with the opposite sex sort of fly in the face of what God thinks is vital for our lives on earth ?

4. Are you basing your subjective opinion based on some trust-busting scenarios that have occured in the past ?

Thanks for elaborating more.

Church seems to be where they congregate most often.

Of course, I was looking for a spouse and she was too. Intentions are to marry and the relationship moves toward a courtship then a deep friendship w resulted quickly.
If you want to keep your marriage intact avoid close friendships with opposite sex. I would not appreciate my wife being that close to another man.
also, as a single person getting to close can give a wrong signal and the spouse or girl or boy friend of that person may not appreciate it either.
As Christians we need to be aware of attacks from the enemy, temptations, appearances of evil, etc. As a pastor needs to avoid one-on-one travel, appointments, certain words etc. with the opposite sex to avoid possible trouble. Ask any prominent minister.
I'm not saying totally avoid the opposite sex or avoid friendship all together just use some common sense on your words, time, place etc.

Ive heard of some people doing it this way and with great success. Im so glad it worked out well for you both. Personally though, it seems that its a bit misplaced in that : Youve already established a Courtship with Marriage as the expectation, before youve even known the Person deeply ; I supposed you can break off the Courtship at any time but it would seem to me that at that point GREAT expectations and dreams have materialized vis-a-vis trip to the Alter .

I see nothing wrong with two people revealing their desire or lack of desire for Marriage on the first date or thru initial online contact , to see if that compatibility exists. Perhaps its just a matter of semantics here (?)

yes...at our age we didn't waste time. The favor of God was on us and we knew it was right at the start. We did IM and email for a long time before first contact to make sure. What help us the most was are maturity in the faith that pull us close, God was in our midst.

So then, there were plenty of confirmations from the H.S. as you moved forward from your intial contact , emailing, and in person meetings ? How long was it till you met in person ... and how long was it after that till you got married ? Thanks for sharing.
