We think it’s a foundation on which to build relationships that last a lifetime.
According to author Jon Birger, you’re not imagining things.
Not only does the creation of a personalized profile allow a chance to be upfront about the importance of God in one’s life, dating sites create a space where religious singles can actively seek someone who has similar priorities. That’s because the road to love – real, lasting love – can be long way to walk.
You could say it’s a journey of forbearance, belief, hope, and endurance.
“There’s a lot of social science showing that men behave differently in different relationship markets,” Birger says.
When faced with an oversupply of women, guys are more likely to delay marriage and play the field. And as reported by numerous publications, dating is out with young people and hookup culture is in.
And some universities are even less of a sausage fest. “What was interesting is that the men who met their wives in college were not the ones who attended colleges that were disproportionately female.
[and] less likely to end in separation or divorce than marriages than began in an off-line venue.” Of course, while a faith-based partnership and a shared belief in God’s teachings can lead to much spiritual comfort, to truly work towards a future with someone you need to be able to connect with them on every level.
