Do they have a Singles Bible Study?
If you see these things cited, after the service, ask the Pastor, Preacher, Rector, Reverend, or Priest about these groups. When do they meet? Who is the clergy person or lay person in charge of them? They might then introduce you to a few of the other members of the group and tell you more about the next session planned for when they meet.

Overall, when dating, act like a mature adult, treat people with respect, trust and be trustable, and maintain your own lives. This will surely land you your perfect mate.
The idea that dating is not normal or health is far from the truth. The simple fact is that online dating actually offers everything normal dating does and more. You are able to actually find out a little about the person before even making contact. Do they like the same things as you? After the initial process of making first contact, it really is no different to ordinary dating. You exchange a few phone calls or texts and then go out and meet as you normally would.
Many people also worry about their safety with online dating sites. The fact is, the online part is entirely safe as you are at home, at your computer. As long as you are sensible and initially don't give out any personal details, you won't go wrong. Once you decide to meet your online date in person, just be cautious as you would be with anyone who is new to you. Make sure you tell a friend or family member where you are going and when you will be back and make sure all meets are in public places to start with.
One advantage is that you can actually use the information the person has put in their profile and ask a few discreet questions when you meet to see if the answers match what is on the profile. A bit sneaky but an easy way to check that the profile details are genuine.
