Now that's not really uncommon for couples to meet on dating apps these days, but what makes it even crazier is that we are both strong Christians. People don't really expect for meaningful relationships to come out of the usage of any dating app, especially Tinder. So I'm going to share my experiences on several dating apps, and what worked well for me.

I have a confession to make now, before God and all of you: As a teen, one of my primary motivations for going to church which wasn't necessarily a weekly engagement for my family at the time was meeting girls. So the concept of a Christian dating service isn't weird to me, even if a statement like "It's Tinder but for Christians! I cleared the idea with my wife first, of course.

They asked questions — questions probing the heart and goodness of God.
Since many Christians today meet online, dating apps are a new normal. Typically designed to be quick and easy to use, many of the most popular dating apps such as Tinder encourage face-value judgments based on little more than appearance and hobbies. This is not a wise way to go about relationships, particularly as a believer.
Ina new craze swept up the world and captivated millions of hopeless singles trying to find love or even a nightly fling. Many of them swiping left and right with sweaty fingers anxiously waiting for the right one to bless their phone screen. In my opinion, Tinder has completely changed and molded the dating environment that we experience today.
