NEW: 5 Ways to Keep Christ In the Center of Your Christian Dating Relationship!
Unfortunately time is not a renewable resource. Once it’s gone it’s gone. Paid for with the precious blood of Jesus, you are very valuable to God. And your time and effort is very valuable as well. Here are four acronyms to keep in mind when writing your Christian singles profile, and also when writing email responses to single Christians who interest you:
1st WORD = 1st Work On Remote Drafts
In other words, make it a habit to first use a word processing program to compose your long, well thought-out, well-written descriptions/answers for your profile. Also do this when writing a long, well thought-out email. Check the spelling and grammar, and then SAVE it. After you are happy with your draft, copy and paste it into your profile or into the email you are sending. That way you DO have a back up in say MSWord or WordPerfect in case your email program “times-out” on you. Sometimes programs and computers crash. Or sometimes to conserve server-time email programs like aol, hotmail, yahoo-mail, etc. do “time-out” and wipeout long well thought-out messages it took a long time to write. Save yourself the frustration. 1st Work On Remote Drafts. You, your words and your thoughts are precious!
1st KISS = 1st Keep It Short/Simple
In other words, make it a habit to 1st send a short / simple (perhaps humorous or touching) email to a person whose personals ad interests you. Before you pour your heart and hours of time into it, first test to see what kind of a response you get to a short email. Most of us try to live by the "golden rule" explained by Jesus in Matthew 7:12. Unfortunately not everyone is kind enough to at least reply. The time to send a long, well thought-out email is after they write back to you. It is very hurtful and frustrating to pour your heart into a long, well thought-out email and have your excitement and hope dashed by months of SILENCE. Test the waters with a short / simple email. You, your time, energy and your excited-hope are precious! Pour your heart into writing to someone special who has 1st proved that they are interested enough to write you back!
1st RATE = 1st Read All Testimonials Expectantly
In other words, expect God to bless you as He has blessed the ones writing the testimonials: about how they met online, then in person, started dating and got married. It can happen to you too! God is able to give you exceedingly abundantly more than you can ever imagine! Most of the Christian Dating Services reviewed on this website list success stories. Let these testimonials cheer you up, strengthen your faith in God’s goodness and love; and expectantly take the 1st step of faith, pray about it before you sign up for a FREE trial membership at a Christian singles website where you feel comfortable. There are some excellent ones that are truly used as God’s instruments to bless single Christians.
1st SAVED = 1st Say A Verse Every Day
Sometimes one of the hardest things to do in life is to keep on going. Christian dating is no exception. Sometimes talking to yourself is actually good for you. Especially when you say an uplifting verse out loud to remind yourself of God’s love, faithfulness, goodness and the fact that He has a wonderful plan for your life (and your love life).
Some favorites are (feel free to suggest other verses):
“I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.” Psalm 34:4-5 (NIV version)
“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him. Fear the Lord, you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing. The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.” Psalm 34:8-10 (NIV version)
“’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV version)
