Christian Seniors Meeting People Online
Meeting senior people online has become extremely popular these days. In fact it is estimated that more than half of all the dating that happens online is done by seniors. That shouldn’t be very surprising actually because there are several seniors who are neglected by their family and are looking for love and care. Online dating and meeting people is definitely a great avenue for seniors to meet together and share their lives.
Several Christian seniors who are singles are also interested to get into online dating but are sometimes skeptical if this is the right thing for them to do and if it is inline with their religious principles. Online dating is definitely easier and more effective than meeting people offline like in church, community events, etc. Following are some suggestions that I can give you to help you with your dating efforts.
Never expect that you will find someone perfect as there is no such person on this earth. You are not perfect and neither is anyone else. So if you find someone who is generally appealing but lacks in certain areas choose to overlook their imperfections. This can be especially difficult for seniors as with age we get more inflexible. Our thinking becomes that there is only one way to do things and that is my way. This kind of my way or the highway mindset will hurt you in your pursuits for your partner.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” I am sure you are familiar with this scripture, this is especially important if you are looking for the right partner online. Don’t let anyone control your emotions, if that person you have expressed interest in doesn’t return the favor or the person that you went out with for your first date doesn’t want to meet again with you, don’t let it make you anxious or angry, for God will definitely bring the right partner for you in due time if you are patient.
Another related problem is that of sounding desperate. If you are not anxious it will be easy for you to be calm when you are speaking to your date, but if you are anxious and feel that somehow you have to make it click with this person, you will start to sound desperate and this can be a major turn off for most people. Learn to love yourself and enjoy your company that way you will reflect confidence and youth and you will be attractive to your potential partner.
Finally enjoy yourself and have fun as you go through this dating process. Don’t burden yourself with your past successes or failures, believe in yourself and your faith. Remember the scripture that “if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”
