As Christians, we believe that God has set out a path for us.

Through His grace and with His guidance, we make decisions throughout our lives that ultimately put us in the right place at the right time to fulfill His plans.

But like anyone else, both of faith and not, we have certain needs and desires. One major hole that people feel in their hearts is the love of a partner.

So much of our lives and our day-to-day activity is found online. It is hard not to be tempted to find love online.

Obviously, the followers of Christ didn’t write a manual to online dating in the Bible.

But, that doesn’t mean that we can’t apply the commandments of love to the modern world.

Sharing your life with another person is one of the most beautiful things that God has willed into our lives.

Coming together as two parts of a whole can fulfill you in ways never before imagined.

Finding someone who cares about the same things and raises God to the same height is incredibly important for Christian lovers.

It isn’t as easy for those who walk with faith to sign up for a Tinder, Bumble, or Hinge profile and begin swiping.

Often, the importance we place on certain values differs from the average internet dater.

Thankfully, a number of Christian platforms have been created that allow us to meet other followers with the same intentions.

Sometimes the hardest part of putting yourself out there on a dating website is actually creating the perfect profile.

Choosing a modest, but attractive, picture and writing a detailed bio that encompasses everything you represent and care about can hold a lot of people back from publishing themselves.

But no fear! We have curated a list of some things to highlight and some to avoid when you are writing your Christian dating profile bio.

1. Start with something eye-catching.

Do you have a favorite hobby? Or a quirky talent? Try to grab the attention of potential partners by standing out from the other profiles.

Share a short, funny story or briefly explain why you are signing up for the website. Others will appreciate your honesty and openness.

Remember: this experience is just as awkward and scary for everyone else on the site!

2. Add in a question for others to answer in their messages to you.

Someone may find themselves really drawn to your profile, but they just can’t find the right thing to say to break the ice. Try adding a playful question to your bio that gives them a conversation starter.

Try adding “What is your favorite book of the New Testament?” or “What is your favorite worship song at the moment?” You never know! You may find out you have more in common with that person than you thought.

3. Focus on the things you, and God, love about yourself.

Of course, you’ll want to be super honest about everything you have to offer. But highlighting the things you love most about yourself will make it easier to share. If it makes you smile while you write, keep it!

If it makes you a little uncomfortable to write, scrap it. Maybe you volunteered with your church group last summer and felt worthy in the eyes of God and others. Share that experience.

4. Be forward with your beliefs and your intentions.

Everyone walks their own path with Christ. If you are focused and committed to abstinence, make it known.

If you want a partner that shares the same, or more, intensity in their faith, make it known.

If you are struggling in your personal journey and need someone to help you get back on track, make it known.

Everyone has the same end goal on a dating website and being specific can help you achieve that goal faster.

5. Stay away from worldliness.

Other followers of God will be able to see through anything superficial and worldly.

The whole reason you are on a Christian dating website is to meet others that walk with faith.

Part of that commitment is saying goodbye to the materialistic pleasures of Earth and focusing harder on the religious joys that only God can give.

Sure, share the things you are interested in, but keep the focus of your bio on your commitment to Christ.
