Unless we are rebelling against God, we can be sure that He is not punishing us through our singleness and that He is very likely bringing the right man or woman our way…eventually!

God uses our choices, other people, and sometimes even modern technology, to bring about marriages.

"While the stereotype is that women are more romantic at heart, our poll suggests men may trump women in believing in romance, even if they don't always show it outwardly."Though the idea behind love at first sight is enchanting and romantic, is it setting up unrealistic expectations for singles or perpetuating somewhat of a dangerous mentality for Christians?

"While attraction is an important part of dating and a great first impression can certainly jump-start a relationship, one of the major benefits of a community like Christian Mingle, is the ability to pace the relationship and get to know a potential date on a meaningful level before meeting in person," Reccord told The Christian Post in an email."Christian Mingle members can get to know one another through on-site communication features such as Email, IM and Message Boards, and even take advantage of the various tools Christian Mingle has available such as the Relationship Readiness Test, Compatibility Matching Profile Assessment (COMPASS) and Color Code personality test, which help members to better understand compatibility and be ready for building a Christ-centered relationship."By setting up these means of communication first, Christians are more likely to approach each potential relationship in a deeper and less superficial manner.

"Today we are looking for someone who accepts us as we are and fulfills our desires, and this creates an unrealistic set of expectations that frustrates both the searches and the searched for.""Some people in our culture want too much out of a marriage partner.

They do not see marriage as two flawed people coming together to create a space of stability, love and consolation," the Redeemer Presbyterian Church pastor explained.

Fifty-five percent of Christian singles still believe in love at first sight, according to a recent Valentine's Day poll conducted by Christian Mingle.com, one of the largest faith-based online dating sites.
