    I don't 'think' I've posted this question here before. Apologies if I have.

    Know any good christian singles sites? I've tried baptistfriends and christiancafe with no luck.

    Thanks.

    The problem with Christian-only sites is that they're incredibly limited in membership. You want a site than has a sufficient client base. Most Christians I've know who do or did internet dating used Yahoo Personals and eHarmony. I think I've been two four wedding now where the couples met, three on Yahoo, and one on eHarmony, and they were all Christian couples.

    My sister in law got denied on eHarmony, and she's a single attractive christian woman in her late 20's with a master's degree. SHe's widowed, but I cant' see that being a factor.

    As for Yahoo, how long have you been on it? It usually takes weeks to months before resulting in a date. It's no different than dating in real life, it just tends to have some convenience to it.

    One person (who does not work for them), told me that they deny you if they cannot match you with anyone. Yahoo personals, I have been there for about a month, I think.

    It doesn't help that I am in South Dakota.

    South Dakota is a serious issue especially if you're looking for a spouce. If you were Air Force I would tell you to seek another duty assignment. You may have to venture to Minnisota or up to Canada. I think you're best bet is prayers. :smilewinkgrin:

    Hey, now.. Exhort me, don't rebuke me.. :tear: :laugh:

    Well, I'll probably be traveling all across the country soon, as a driver. Maybe that will help. ;) Unfortunately, I wouldn't be in one place for too long.

    Even worse brother! I will definately keep you in my prayers. And if I come across any great single christian ladies I'll direct them to South Dakota. However, you're probably doing the right thing jumping on line.

    Oh, yeah, that's way too short of a time. You gotta give it several months.

    Not where I live. It's an excellent classified source for free if you use it right. I'm sure anyone can misuse any classified.

    Uh, no, it's not. Sure, there are plenty of folks who abuse Craigslist, but to categorize it as largely being an ad for prostitutes is incorrect.
