It means dating someone who meets the values and goals you have for a future spouse (more on that later).
Casual or purposeless dating has no benefit for Christians. We are designed to know why we do stuff and where we are going. Now, please, please, please don’t be a freakish weirdo. It involves sharing personal struggles and vulnerability. If you believe God is preparing you for foreign missions, is it important the person you marry shares this passion? If you love the Cowboys and your future spouse loves the Packers, is it important to work through this before marriage?
Dating with a trajectory towards marriage doesn’t mean you only date one person ever. So, if you choose not to get coffee or watch a movie with the opposite sex, then whatever. The ultimate purpose of marriage is sanctification (becoming like God). If you have no idea what values are important to you in a future spouse, exit the road to marriage at the next off ramp.
That would be awesome, but it’s not always realistic. If you are a Christian, God isn’t a piece of your pie. Why date someone who doesn’t even have God as a piece of the pie? Pull over at the closest gas station and decide what you want in a future spouse. Your list is designed to give you a framework for dating, not be a checklist for it. Your heart and the holiness of marriage are too important to flippantly give away because you are frustrated, impatient, or settling.
After all, a mutually supportive partnership can strengthen beliefs and be a source of great happiness; both emotionally and spiritually.
This is why we are proud to provide a dating platform that can help Christian singles connect.
Let's face it: holding out for something real is not the easiest path to choose. Online dating, then, is a valuable tool for anyone seeking a like-minded commitment.
With sites like Elite Singles, not only can you find compatible men and women, you can get very specific about what that means, enabling you to find someone who shares your values your desire for a committed, loving, Christian relationship.

At Elite Singles, we understand that many Kiwi Christians look to build a life with someone who shares their core values.
Indeed, as many spiritually-minded New Zealanders can attest, there's a difference between being a cultural Christian and being a follower of Christ, and so meeting someone who truly shares one's beliefs can be tricky.
Rebecca Vandemark (33) is one Christian single who knows this difficulty only too well.
