That’s a good question. I’m not sure. I think, as they claim, God can use a tool like that to find you your mate. But I think there are some people that want a spouse so bad that they’ll use internet dating sites to hook up with someone equally as desperate. I think it’s dangerous to move too fast when it comes to finding a husband or wife, and people on the internet are good at showing only their good sides.
It’s hard to see what someone is like “for real” when from the start they are trying to impress you. That danger fades over time as you get to know someone in a context other than dating.
I found my wife at 12 years old over a game of connect four. We were friends for years before we started dating. We were 100% sure that we knew each other before we started getting “serious.”
I also know someone who found a great guy on a dating site like that. Her and her son were under threats from their unbelieving family in indonesia, and she had to find a spouse in the States or get sent back to her country and risk losing her son. She quickly found a Christian guy and they are happy together.
God’s got a different plan for everybody. I think it’s important to be aware of the dangers of making big decisions in a short period of time. Trust that God’s got the best thing in mind for you. Regardless of whether you find your spouse at 12, 32, 52 or not in this lifetime, He’s got good things in store for you.
