But the most important thing is to listen to the Lord. It is easy to let the feelings of being left out of love cloud our thinking. Whether it happens in the aisle of a bookstore, the counter at a coffeehouse, or in cyberspace, there’s nothing wrong with holding out for the fairy tale.
Some may say online dating is a great idea, where as I feel it’s a lottery.
Of course as long as there has been online dating, there has been a stigma attached to it.
Ten years ago, had anyone told you, “We met online”, you may have tried to stifle one or possibly all of the following: It was the equivalent of saying, “I’m desperate, and the ticking of my biological clock keeps me up at night.” However today, with the bombardment of television ads and word-of-mouth praise, online daters are coming out of the closet. I didn’t believe it until I began researching for this article.

So you got a house, a car, a degree, a job, did some traveling, and built yourself into somebody rather enviable.

But one thing today’s singles are finding out is that there is one thing in life you can’t work for, be good enough for, or accomplish through any persistence of your own. Now, millions log on everyday to search through profiles and photos of total strangers, hoping to find that special someone.
