    I haven't had any luck finding christian girls in churches around me; partly because some of them I'm not able to attend due to a disability.

    How else can I find a mate?

    Pray that God will bring you one. Beleive it or not He is very capable of doing that, even if it means she might come by way of helping the disabled.

    I pray, but I'm looking for what else I can do.

    Be faithful to God. Pray without faithfulness produces nothing. Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and "all of these things" will be added according to his timing and circumstances. Trust him.

    Then you may have to expand your search to other areas. When I was living in SC its what I had to do.

    Also it is possible that God may want you single. I do not know but thats his will for some people.

    Maybe, but judging by 1Co 7, I don't think that's the case...

    You want the girl that God has for you don't you? Be patient and wait upon him. I have lots of experience with the impatient in this area and the mess it has caused them.

    And I'm guessing you also interpret god bringing eve to adam as a sign that we're not to "seek" a mate, but rather let god bring one to us?

    If so, I reject the idea; it's hyper-spiritualized and made to do what it was never intended. It's also contrary to 1Co 7 which suggests we not seek a mate 'in light of this present distress,' which means the normal method is to seek.

    Or the women moves to you. That's what I did. I lived in Colorado, my now husband lived in Arizona so I move to Arizona when we got married. To me it just made sense that I should be the one to move.

    We met through Eharmony. After communicating for a couple of weeks he decided he wanted to meet me, and he flew out to Colorado to meet me. I also flew to Arizona a couple of times to see him on his turf, and than when we got married I moved in with him in Arizona.

    We like to tell people we met on the side of the road, since he got lost trying to find the restaurant where we were going to meet in person for their first time. He called me and I came to where he was and than he followed me to the restaurant. Ours was a bit faster than yours, as we got engaged just 10 weeks after being matched up on Eharmony, and were married less than a year later.
