Single and Shy Sure: If we’ve all resorted to online dating, then perhaps it’s because we’re all a little shy and have been weaned off of personal interaction by our cell phones.But if you are particularly bashful, then Single and Shy is the perfect cyber meeting place for those who have trouble putting themselves out there. Date My School Date My School is a site that helps put university students and alumni in touch with others from the same alma mater.You may now see our list and photos of women who are in your area and meet your preferences.Again, please keep their identity a secret Click on the "Continue" button search with your zip/postal code.As a friend of mine so eloquently pointed out on her blog (which later inspired my response), Christians are sometimes so busy trying to avoid the appearance of evil that we tend not to know how to form healthy relationships with members of the opposite sex.Imagine how that complexity would play out in the world of internet dating.
We believe there is power in numbers and therefore, two is always better than one.Some people who choose to seek out ministers online may only be interested in the power and prestige associated with being in ministry. Some people attracted to this type of website may be surprised to learn that ministers are human just like everybody else.

People fear dating ministers for various reasons including fear of judgment and the belief that we are generally boring individuals whose lives are devoid of all things interesting. The online dating world is one of the easiest ways for a minister to venture outside of their physical environment where people may only be interested in pursuing relationships with them due to perceptions of status.In spite of my apparent reservations, I have a clear understanding why some people would join such a site.

At least sites like Marry offer ministers a venue free from such rejection for they are only filled with people who have not listed “being in ministry” as one of their deal breakers. At the same time, sites like Marry do raise a few red flags for me. People who seek out ministers specifically may have ulterior motives.
