Love Tests-The Ultimate Love Test

Are you familiar with love tests? You can see love tests on many dating sites and in romance/dating magazines. What exactly is a love test? A love test is basically a quiz, a set of questions that supposedly will determine whether or not the girl or guy you are dating really loves you, or is just faking it. In my opinion, most of these love tests are inaccurate, and should be taken sort of like the “he loves me, he…

The Alpha Course and Singles

Attending an Alpha Course is a great way to renew your faith in God, as well as a way to meet other singles. For those of you who don’t know, the Alpha Course is a free ten week course that explores the meaning of life in the context of the Christian faith. After coordinating five Alpha courses over several years, mostly to singles, I have seen dozens of folks come to Christ, and have made great friendships along the way.…

Single Women and Men Looking to Get Married

According to a MSN single life survey, only 20% of single women and men are not looking to get married; However, more than 28% of singles expect to remain in their single life state. The results of this singles survey means that a substantial number of singles are walking around with unfulfilled desires and lack of contentment with their singlehood. Where do you stand on this issue? If you are seeking to attract the right person to date and eventually…

Lonely Woman: Lonely Women who are Single

I met a single lonely woman today. She said she had no one to share the burdens of her heart with. If you feel like you too are a lonely single woman, you’re not alone. According to a Duke University study, 25% of the US population feels like they have no one with whom to share their pains of life. The vast majority of these folks are…you guessed it: lonely single women and men. Why am I not surprised? Single…

Single Dads Dealing with Grief and Loss

Hundreds of single dads who lost their wives during the 9/11 terrorist attacks are still dealing with grief. One particular single dad I interviewed relayed that he and his deceased wife had both worked in the World Trade Center. He survived that day only because he was late to work after taking his child to the school bus. Single Dads Going Through Grief The worst part of that day for this single dad was having to tell his five year…

Singles Issues-What Singles Worry About Most

So what do you think the top singles issues are among Christian singles in the world. Oh wait! Before I get into this article on singles issues, I want to thank all of you single Christians out there for praying for my site. The thief, God bless him, gave me my site back! Woo Hoo! Please pray that the Lord reveals His love to him in a deep way, and thank you, Mr. Thief, wherever you are. Please keep in…

Prince of Peace for Singles

How we need the Prince of Peace today! Not only is there little peace in the world due to wars, but many walk around anxiously with little peace of mind and contentment in their hearts. Not a few of these folks are singles, who make up over 90 million people in the US alone. Prince of Peace Promise Recently, a dude took out a full page ad in the New York Times claiming he was the prince of peace, and…

Aging and Growing Old Being Single

Today is my birthday. Yippee! Actually, I can’t stand aging and growing older by yet another year, but it sure beats the alternative. I have spoken to a number of Christian singles (and there are many out there) who are also having, shall we say, a difficult time aging gracefully as well. Why did I feel a tinge of comfort as they spoke of their own issues with aging? Coping with Aging and Growing Older Basically what we have found…

Spiritual Journey of Singles

According to our survey results, most singles agree that they are on a spiritual journey. Unfortunately, most admit that they are clueless as to where that spiritual journey may lead. Therefore many seek guidance for their spiritual journey. Some seek spiritual gurus from Eastern religions. Others go to fortune tellers for help with their spiritual journey. It seems some people will try anything except a relationship with the one true God as found in the Holy Bible. Spiritual Journey that…

Dating Chat With God

A dating chat with God? Yeah, I know that sounds strange. Usually when we think of dating chats, we think of online dating chat rooms where flirting and speaking with the oppositie sex takes place. Recently, however, several Christian singles mentioned how they were struggling with their faith, and wish they could have a “dating chat” with God on few issues. Like Job, they figured if they could, they would ask the Lord a few questions on some things they…

Christian Singles: Making Peace With Your Past

Many Christian singles can’t get over the past. Several years back, I went on a Christian singles retreat, where the topic at hand was making peace with your past. Christian single after Christian single shared their sad stories of how a bad past experience, a soured relationship or a sexual sin had held them back from living victoriously in the present. Although many Christian singles there that weekend desired a serious dating relationship leading toward a Christian marriage, few were…

Christian Singles, Singleness and Marriage

I meet so many Christian singles who have a distorted view of marriage and singleness. Somehow many singles have gotten it into their heads that marriage is THE biggest goal to achieve, while singleness is looked on as less desireable. Unfortunately, a lot of Christians’ thinking about singleness and marriage is reinforced by our church culture. For example, while the greatest missionary in history, the Apostle Paul, was single, many modern day mission boards and churches exclude ministerial candidates unless…
