Wishing all Christian Singles A Very Happy Christmas

Is Christmas a happy time for Christian singles? Certainly Christmas is special for Christians but we also recognise that holidays can be a difficult and sometimes  a lonely time of year for singles who would rather be in a committed relationship.

At this time of year we all seem to be so very busy. It is very easy to get preoccupied with trying to find the perfect present for Grandma or queuing for sprouts to go with the turkey for Christmas dinner. Remember to make time to relax, don’t be tempted to turn down the invitations to the festive social events. You never know who you might meet and widening your social circle is a great way to meet more Christian singles.

Many of us take time off work over Christmas and many dating websites see a rise in the number of people joining at this time of year. If you would like to share your turkey and tinsel with a special Christian single in 2013 , then treat yourself to a membership and start dating people like you this New Year.

Merry Christmas from all the team at MatchMeNowChristian.

 

 

Cara & Paul’s Dating Experience

The pressure was really high leading up to the first date. We both felt as if we had so much to lose if for any reason the first meeting did not go as hoped . We had invested so much time writing ,texting and speaking to each other on the phone it was like we knew everything about the other person. We were already such integral part of each others lives.

We quickly scheduled follow up dates and before we knew it seeing each other daily was a necessity. While it is all very fast nothing has felt easier or more natural. We have both truly found the person intended for us for the rest of our lives.

Christian Singles Face Christmas Holiday Dilemma

A a Christian Single do you consider yourself fairly unlucky in the dating scene – and are you worrying about the approaching Christmas holiday season?
It is widely believed by psychologists that depression increases during the holidays and even committed Christians can feel low at Christmas time. I can imagine that it is relatively easy to fall prey to the glum that the holiday brings if you have nobody to share it with. Sure, you may have your family or friends with you. However, nothing rivals the closeness and intimacy that only a special Christian partner can bring to your life.

Given that the holiday season is just around the corner, it would be nice to be aware of the dating dilemmas many Christian singles face. But do not worry, for every problem, there are ways on how to deal with the particular malady.

Dating Dilemma 1: You notice that every holiday deed seems to drag compared to the previous year when you had a steady date to share your cheer with.

Can you sing that old familiar Wham song? “Last Christmas I gave you my heart….” Well if you were an ’80’s fan you definitely will remember the lyrics. True, it hurts to dwell on memories of a past love. The holiday atmosphere only magnifies every feeling. We all know that holiday cheer means being with your special someone, spending time with family, and reconnecting with people who matter. But being a Christian single should not drag you down. Rather, lift your chin up high and concentrate on being with close friends. Remember, when you were dating you deprived yourself of spending time with your ¬†buddies and friends. So bring out your telephone directory and start organizing a reunion! Brace yourself for a jolly good time!

Dating Dilemma 2: Family and relatives constantly ask who you are currently dating.

This dreaded question seems as if they were dabbing salt on your wounds. The best thing to do in this type of situation is to come up with a template answer. Prior to going to the family gatherings, compose a believable answer. So when your Uncle Charles starts asking who your girlfriend is now, you can retort by saying: “I am single now because I am focusing my efforts on being active in Amnesty International.” Try to think somewhere along this line. The idea is to have your relatives think that a relationship is not part of your current agenda, as you have more important priorities in life. This way you won’t start sounding like a loser.

The holidays can sometimes be a drag, but with the right outlook and with proper planning, even a non-dating individual can still manage to sneak in some fun and survive. So go out there and have fun and share goodwill at this special Christian time
