At Elite Singles users can ascribe personal importance to their partner’s religious beliefs, increasing the likelihood of connecting with someone with mutual values and a shared belief in the teachings of Christ.
When you do the maths, what this really means is that the ‘pool’ of potential partners for christian singles in Australians is just 8% of the population - it's no wonder it's so hard to find a match!
This is the reason so many of Australia's Christians are heading online to find like-minded singles.
In the words of Jenell Paris, social anthropologist at Messiah College; 'Christians should look online for dates because that's where the people are!
' maybe you'd only like to date someone who lives within a certain distance parameter (Elite Singles members hail from all over Australia, from the beautiful Sunshine Coast to downtown Melbourne and everywhere in between!
) Whatever your specific partner requirements may be, Elite Singles boosts your chances by providing you match suggestions tailored to your hopes and wishes - it's simply the smarter way to date online.
Five years ago when online dating was less popular, many Christian singles tended to shy away from online dating with the view that partnerships which began online were somehow inferior to partnerships that had begun in the Church. In a major research report into the efficacy of online dating by scholars of Harvard and Chicago Universities, it was concluded that couples who met online have fewer divorces and higher marriage satisfaction.These resounding claims are enough to convince any single to seek a partner online, but it’s of course especially attractive for Christian dating who often tend to be marriage-focussed when it comes to dating.Some christian singles are happy to partner up with singles outside of the church, but for many Christians, finding someone who shares their faith is vital in building a strong foundation for a healthy relationship.Naturally, it makes a lot of sense; christian singles tend to share not only faith but also similar morals, values and lifestyle attributes.If you, too, would prefer to meet someone who shares your faith, it's perfectly normal if you're finding it difficult to get in touch with new Christian singles.In fact, it's one of the pitfalls of Christian dating - they are quite hard to find!
