He had tried a few online dating sites with "really terrible experiences."His date suggestion: "How about we start with coffee and end with wine.Add some art or culture in between and it could be fun." That got him a few dates, including one woman he's seen several times since.As a Christian dating site we believe that marriage is a sacred covenant between man and woman, ordained by God as part of His divine plan for each of us. God says in Genesis : "It isn't good for man to be alone; I will make a companion for him, a helper suited to his needs." God himself brings people together according to his timetable.Sometimes it feels like his plans are limiting us, and sometimes it's not easy to wait for God's timing. Most dating websites used to focus on helping singles get acquainted with extended online communication before meeting face-to-face.And everybody's getting into the act — even the AARP.
Sadly, it also shows our brokenness, when we review the divorce rate, even among Christians.Its traffic jumped 221% in the past year, according to Com Score."The core idea was to build an offline dating site that made it easy for people to say what they want to do for a date, connect and get offline," says Brian Schechter, 33, co-founder and co-CEO of How About We, which launched two years ago.Although he just turned 50 in September and isn't an AARP member, Ken Nicholas signed up with How About We this fall because he "liked the premise of taking it offline."Nicholas, a sales consultant in Los Angeles, was married for 12 years; he says it was difficult to get back into dating after his divorce was finalized in August.For the new partnership, AARP is offering its members a seven-day free trial and half off the normal rates.
How About We charges .99 a month, though costs dip for a longer commitment.So relax and start chatting and e-mailing on (trustworthy) Christian dating sites. Our mission is to prayerfully match Christian singles according to God's universal plan.
