dating a non christianEvery Christian who signs up for an online dating site have come across the non-Christian members who contact you even though you specify Christian matches.  If you are not on a strictly Christian dating site then you are searchable by all members no matter their religious beliefs.  Anyone can contact you and if you do not ask their religion then you may end up dating someone who does not share your faith.  The following are some Christian dating tips for dating a non-Christian:

Do Not Hide Your Religion

Do not hide your religion or your faith from your date.  Be proud of who you are and what you believe in and they will respect you for this.  They may even see the love that you have for God and how it makes your world so much better than theirs.  This is not to say you should push your beliefs on them in a manner that may cause them to stop dating you; instead let them simply see the light.  Your behavior and actions can go a lot further to bring a non-believer to the fold than in your face proselytizing does.  So be proud that you love God and allow your date to see how fulfilled your religion makes you.

Stay True to Your Beliefs

If the single you met on a dating site asks you to go out and you really want to you can say yes certainly.  Just remember to stay true to your beliefs and to not go anywhere that would compromise your religion.  For instance, if you are asked to go to a nightclub for drinks and dancing this is not a proper Christian date.  You should tell the person that this is not something that you could do and ask for a different type of date.  Perhaps going bowling or to see a movie would be a better choice and would allow you to stay true to your faith.

Pray for Guidance

God is always there for you and if you ask him for guidance he will give it to you.  Pray about your new romantic interest and ask God if you are doing the right thing.  He will answer and you will know in your heart if you are making the right decision.  God wants his children to be happy and if this person makes you happy and is a kind and caring soul there should be no problem with you dating them.  Only you and God will know if they are good for you so if you pray hard on this, God will supply you with the answers you are seeking.

Invite Them to Your Church Services or Functions

There is no reason why you cannot ask your date to join you for church services or other church functions.  In any event it does not hurt you to invite them and you may eventually find that they want to be included in your religion.  If they are truly a good person but are not interested in joining you at church you can still date them.  They may just be a bit shy about going into a situation where they feel uncomfortable.  There are always the questions that are asked of them such as what church do they normally attend.  This can make them uncomfortable if they have not been to church in a long time.  Make the offer to take them with you and then let them choose when and if they want to attend services with you.


It can be difficult to meet someone you like at a dating website who does not belong to the same religion as you or who is not a Christian at all.  This does not mean that these types of relationships do not last; it just takes a great deal of patience, tolerance and love on both parts.  You both need to decide if the relationship is worth the work that it will take to make it work.
