Christian dating sights are Internet dating systems which permit individuals to communicate with each other over the Internet with the intention of developing a personal relationship which eventually leads to marriage.
Psychologist, Danny Hembree, explains that the Internet hosts different types of dating sites for different types of people and Christian dating sights should not be confused with other dating sights that promote sexual liaisons.
Christians believe that sex before marriage is adultery and they date each other platonically to become acquainted before marriage.
Men that want to engage in a romantic relationship on a Christian dating site are setting themselves up for problems. A Christian female that gets pressured into a romantic situation could come back later with a different story from that of her partner's story.
Hembree advises men that want to engage in romantic affairs not to visit religious dating sites, but instead they should seek out dating sites that promote the type of relationship they are looking for.
Some genetically, asexual females may visit religious dating sites expecting not to engage in a romantic situation. Those type of rare women may be lured there by curiosity. Police officers that date women tend to stay away from religious dating sites to avoid problems.
Online dating geared for romantic encounters generally require a prospective member to provide personal information, before they can search the service provider's database for other individuals using criteria they set, such as age range, gender and location.
Online dating sites use market metaphor to match paying members up. They use men as a marketing sacrifice to gain hefty profits from desperate women.
A man may become disappointed if he is not matched up with a slim, young, beautiful woman. He may instead be matched up with unattractive women who paid hundreds of dollars to the online dating site and those women expect not to be disappointed.
Hembree explains that men should shop around at different dating sites until they find the type of women they are searching for.
They have to involve the women in long conversations to find out what kind of personality they have. The worst type of women are those that are violent and those that have criminal records.
Sites may offer services such as, online photos, webcasts, online chat, telephone chat, and message boards.
Some sites provide free registration, but may offer services which require a monthly fee. Other sites depend on advertising for their revenue.
