advice on internet dating

Good evening to all. I am new to this particular board. Some years ago, i tried internet dating. i checked out a couple of sites, made a few friends, you know. there was one particular guy, however, who seemed quite interested in me. when i asked him what was his marital status, i found out he was married. i began to notice a little before i found out that his profile was similar to other guys with different screen names of course. i began to suspect that he used different screen names to attract women. anyhow, i didn't go that route again for a number of years.

About 3 months or so ago, i decided to look up Christian dating sites in a search engine. and i found one. I think their name is Christianmingles, something like that.

so now i have decided to give the internet dating a try again. I got baptized in May, so i said that maybe the safest dating sites would be a christian dating site.

I am asking for some advice on how to deal with guys i meet on this christian dating site. anybody experienced in internet dating, i would truly appreciate any expert advice you can give me on how i should handle this. gave it a long break and i am willing to try again. hope i have better luck this time.

I think the CHristian dating site is a great idea for you...it is clearly important to you.

Thank you very much. You know when i wrote this thread on Saturday, the next day, yesterday (Sunday) there was an article appearing in the newspaper about it. i read it and promptly took it out of the newspaper. i read it twice already.

anybody else?

Thanks. How long after do you give contact information for example phone numbers? i was chatting with a guy a long time a few nights ago. he gave me his number and said that i can call him if i want. I was thinking to myself that it is too quick to transfer to the phone, cause it was just the first night. i didn't tell him that though. what do you think?

Also is it okay to ask them what is their internet dating style in terms of the number of persons they are talking to first before they decide who they want to meet with? The article in the paper said that individuals should know their internet style, whether they are speaking to many persons first or speaking to just a few persons before they make their choice? date exclusively, that is. it said nothing about asking the other person about their dating style. but i am wondering if that is appropriate. Let me know, please. thanks.

Depends on what you're looking for. If you're looking for a Christian mate, those sites are probably well suited for you as people on it share the same values as you.




I've been reviewing dating sites for awhile (mostly fling sites) and I can tell you that the one important thing is to find a site where you expect to find a compatible mate.
