How to Meet Women at Church

by Relationships & Family Editor

Meeting new people at church isn't hard to do. In fact, meeting people is one of the biggest reasons that church exists. Churches do their best to function as communities of believers, hosting social events and group studies on popular topics as well as explicitly religious ones. If you've recently moved into a new area and are looking for Christian women to date, church is a reasonable place to start.

Attend church with the goal of meeting people only if you are truly interested in forming relationships with Christian people. If you are not already religious, learn more about the faith before meeting potential partners. If you end up deciding that the religion isn't right for you, it will cause problems with your dating life.

Accept your intention to meet women at church. Don't be ashamed that one of the reasons to attend church is to meet other believers.

Seek out church groups and opportunities for social interaction to meet more of the church family. In order to meet anyone, male or female, you have to branch out from Sunday mornings and expand the context of your church life.

Look for groups that specifically target singles. Many churches have multiple groups for singles, including young adult Sunday School classes and support groups for adults coping with divorce or death of a spouse.

Get involved in groups and activities that interest you. If your church has a certain ministry that you want to participate in, join that group first and worry about meeting women later. You'll meet potential partners who fit your personality better if you meet them while doing activities that matter to you.

Make meeting women secondary to Christian growth. There is nothing more attractive to a Christian woman than a man who is committed to his faith. Many women assert that a Christian woman should be so close to Jesus that a man has to search for God just to find her.

Learn how to respect and compliment a Christian woman. You can't successfully find a partner at church unless you know how to express your attraction to that person in a respectful and acceptable manner. Let a woman know that you are interested, but make sure that you are conforming to her boundaries and dating values.
