Website: ‘It’s your choice as to which dating sites to use’

Let me first state something that all those who have been on this website will readily agree with. This online dating industry is a daunting one to navigate. It’s no secret that I am not a fan of online dating and all of the public shaming that sometimes occurs, but let me put it this way: It is my biggest weakness in terms of good dating decisions. However, there are so many sites, including some wonderful online dating apps, that I understand and appreciate, which is why I have now “gone legit” and launched my own online dating site, Love Awake.com.

If you love a particular website, you are welcome to either join Love Awake, or do your own research and find your own sites that are a match for you, your identity, your beliefs, and your personality. There are many sites I would not recommend to you, and I will elaborate on the sites below.

Some of the Christian dating sites:

Love Awake – Love Awake is a Christian singles’ dating and relationship site, and is not affiliated with any other dating sites.

Christian Mingle – Christian Mingle is a Christian online dating site specifically for singles over the age of 23.

Christian Mingle.com – This site is aimed at single individuals between the ages of 18-45, who are over 50. It is a Christian online dating site.

Curious Church – Curious Church is a Christian dating site for singles ages 55 and up.

Savvy Christian Mingle – This Christian dating site is focused on singles and attracted to other singles and post-college singles between the ages of 25-45.

Predictably Christian – This site is focused on singles between the ages of 25-30.

Pure Christian – Pure Christian is a Christian dating site specifically for Christians and seeking to find romance within God’s Kingdom.

PureMingle.com – This is a Christian dating site.

Temptation – Temptation is a Christian dating site.

Pastors Thrift Shop – This Christian dating site is for singles and attracted to Christians over age 25. It is not affiliated with any other dating sites.

So, there you have it: There are some Christians who use the Christian dating sites, and there are some who do not. I fully understand both beliefs. I don’t begrudge either, and I feel most Christians would embrace the option of loving and dating within God’s Kingdom.

The Christian online dating world is a very small community, and we all are proud to be a part of it. We wish each other a huge Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, as well as hope that we will discover our Love Awake and leave our singles behind.

I will be hosting a “Get to Know Your Online Dating Site” event on Oct. 18 in Schaumburg, IL. The free event will be held from 7-8:30 pm at Mount Olive Church of the Nazarene, 10300 W. Higgins Road.

This church was co-founded by my father, Rev. James W. Malter. Rev. Malter was a pastor in Northern Illinois for more than 30 years, and has conducted many youth conferences in Southern Illinois for the youth ministry, Transformation Lifespring. (Transformation Lifespring is not a separate Christian ministry, but it is a wonderful program that calls on all people to become MORE alive and to have greater hope. That’s where Transformation Lifespring shares its excitement about being focused on elevating God’s people to greater heights.) I am excited about the event, and I hope you will join me to learn more about the online dating industry. Click here to RSVP.
