Published

It’s hard enough to have a fun and enjoyable date with someone nice and decent. It’s twice as hard to go on a date with someone who’s not only nice and decent but whom you share a common faith with. The thing is, you rarely find someone whom you might like in your church or prayer community. That is how Christian dating services come to exist.

If you are the type of person who has a deep faith and who intends to practice it at all times and at all costs, then most probably you want to have a partner who’s going to share the same intention as yours. Have you found one? If not yet, why don’t you take some time to consider joining the Christian online dating services? For sure, you’ll find the perfect partner of yours.

Typical of a Christian is the desire to raise his family in a home that’s filled with faith and peace. As of the moment, the number of Christian online dating services websites has exceeded the availability of those websites that focus on Jewish and Muslim dating services. With being a member of a Christian dating website, you’ll find it enjoyable to be able to get connected with someone of the opposite sex for some promising romantic relationship, be able to chat or conduct healthy conversations online, have someone who’s going to share the same views and values regarding your faith, get worthy advice on how to cope up with the usual struggles that every Christian happens to encounter, have somebody to share your favorite Bible passages with, and many others. As you try out signing up for these dating services, you are certain to mark some important changes in your life.

Many websites for Christian dating services are termed as non-denominational. Meaning, everyone who belongs from various churches are welcomed. Of course, one requirement is for you to indicate the church of yours in your personal profile. The personal profile that you create upon signing up will be used by the rest of the members in finding the perfect partner for themselves.

Over the years, the Christian dating services online have gained a wide popularity. For the individuals who don’t find partying or going out a lot an interesting thing to do, signing up for a dating services website would be more than enough. True indeed, there are millions of Christians who are brought together by these dating websites. Even when one is at home, the search for a perfect match continues.

General  tips to consider

As soon as you spot your prospect partner, start off with sending emails, SMS, or talking through the phone or chat. Don’t be too aggressive to ask the person out at once.

Be cautious as always. You never know how genuine your newly met people are. After all, the internet is a host to several fraud cases.

Be careful with what you say. There may be extra sensitive individuals that you might offend.

Value a commitment. Don’t promise anything if you can’t fulfill it in any way. You’re just about to ruin your reputation if you do so.

Start an interesting conversation. It would determine the possibility of a promising relationship.

Christian online dating is highly popular today so there’s never going to be a problem with your search of a partner. Being single or alone will simply end as soon as you spot your favored partner. Just be sure that you log on to a safe and non tricky website. Most of the administrators though allow feedbacks so you can always check out the reputation of one website against another. Start now and be amazed at the changes in you

 What to Expect and look out for

There are many reasons why people join these sites. While most people seek to develop a serious romantic relationship with others, there are some who join these sites to find a prayer partner or to develop fun friendships with people whom they share common beliefs and interests with. Whatever your reason is, the good thing of meeting someone through these websites is Christ’s presence in your relationship. As your relationship grows, so does your faith in God. That, alone, is reason enough to join these websites.

The mechanism is simple. You register by filling out a form, upload a picture, and have your own mailbox. Once you’ve completed registration, you may then see their catalog or database. Here you are able to see members. You can make particular searches by age or area, depending on your preference. You can then send messages to people whom you might want to meet or pursue. If they respond, then it can be the beginning of something.

There are basically two types of these sites – free and commercial. Free sites do not ask their members for any charge. As for these commercial sites, they may or may not allow free trials for a short period. The prices of these sites differ as well. These are some things that you would have to consider in choosing a website.

What else should you consider? First, make sure that it is private and safe. Avoid sites which ask you to post your real name, address, work information or other personal information for other people to access. There are also some sites which personally pre-screen their members. This gives an assurance that a real person is on the other side and not a mere “ghost” or con man.

What other services do these sites provide? Aside from matchmaking services, they may also post relevant information such as safety dating tips and general dating advice. They remind you to be careful in giving out personal information, to get to know the other person more before agreeing to meet personally, to choose a public place in case you decide to meet. Who knows, the other person might turn out to be a serial killer or stalker.

Some sites also have forums or chat rooms where members can interact. This is also another chance to find interesting people, as you are able to converse and exchange views with them. They may also include other features such as bible commentary and testimonials from members.

Christian dating services are the “in” thing nowadays. While nothing beats the traditional way of approaching someone and asking for her or his number, in today’s fast-paced world, the internet is also another way to meet and get to know people. As long as you are open to new ideas, these dating services can actually work for you. So why don’t you give these sites a try. Browse through them and see if they work for you.

Yvonne Jegede speaks on failed marriage, calls ex-husband ‘deadbeat dad’

Published

By

Yvonne Jegede, the Nollywood actress, has accused Olakunle ‘Abounce’ Fawole, her ex-husband, of being a deadbeat father.

The actress spoke about her failed marriage during a show hosted by Mercy Johnson Okojie.

Jegede said nothing significant was the cause of their divorce.

She said despite having a “solid friendship” before marriage, they weren’t just compatible and “were on different pages”.

“It didn’t work out and we can’t force it. I really don’t want to talk about the problem we had but honestly, it wasn’t worth splitting over. I think we were on different pages, we were not even reading the same book in the first place,” she said.

“He is a very good guy with a good mind, sympathy and that’s why I married him. But I guess he is not the right person for me so we had to go our separate ways.

“I already saw we both don’t have a future together so I had to leave. I didn’t go through anything though because he didn’t beat me, he did nothing.

“Olakunle and I don’t talk anymore. I don’t know the reason for that because he had a solid friendship aside from the marriage.”

Jegede further called Fawole a “deadbeat father” who doesn’t care about his son’s wellbeing.

She said the first and last time he asked about his son was when the boy was 5 months old — when she threatened not to use his name as the boy’s surname.

She added that despite reaching out to him, he still didn’t come to check up on his son.

“The first time he publicly accepted and carried the son was when he was 5 months old. I gave him an ultimatum that I will remove his surname if the boy turns 5 and he doesn’t show up,” she said.

“I had given my son a compound name, Xavier Jegede Fawole, and I threatened that I will remove the Fawole and leave just the Jegede since I individually raised him.

“Since that day he never called. He doesn’t wish him a happy birthday on his birthdays. He doesn’t call him to ask about his well-being.

“Your gift is in my hand yet you don’t care. You see, one moment I dreaded the most is for my child to wake up one day and ask where is my father and it has happened.

“That day he (the son) asked, I had to send messages to his siblings to ask him to come and check up on him but it yielded no result.

“However, my house is open for him to come to check on his son but he clearly doesn’t want to. My father went for father’s day to represent him the other day, it was quite painful. But he doesn’t want to be involved in his son’s life so I’m going to raise my son myself.”

Blaqbonez disappointed over Wizkid’s comment on rappers

Blaqbonez, the Nigerian artiste, says he is “disappointed” over Wizkid‘s controversial comment about rappers in Africa.

Wizkid has been in the news since last week over his scathing criticism of rap music which he dismissed as “boring” and “dead”.

In an interview, Wizkid stated that he doesn’t listen to rap, suggesting rappers have failed to adapt to change.

“Afrobeats is the new pop. I sold two million copies in America off of one song! Even some American artists don’t have a diamond record. If I’m being honest, I don’t listen to any other genre of music anymore,” he said.

His comment attracted a chorus of condemnation from a number of indigenous hip-hop artistes and fans of rap music.

MI Abaga appeared to have countered Wizkid, saying rap is “still on the rise”.

Oladips, the fast-rising rapper, also called out the ‘Ojuelegba’ crooner, asking him if he has ever helped any rapper.

Still unsatisfied, the ‘Bad To Me’ crooner later took to his Snapchat on Saturday to describe Nigerian rappers as “broke boys”.

He also claimed Sarkodie, Nasty C, and Black Sheriff are the only rappers in Africa.

“Can’t believe y’all broke boys really thought Big Wiz will talk about y’all, wow! Y’all keep sending una popsy rap videos! I go dey watch maybe I fit help una mama life,” he wrote.

“Y’all not even rappers, Nasty C/ Sarkodie/ Black Sheriff are the only rappers in Africa. Y’all dumb f****s.”

Reacting via a lengthy Twitter post, Blaqbonez registered his disappointment with Wizkid over his comment.

“The last few days had me reflecting, looking back at how far I’ve come, the Wins and the Losses, whatever rap may or may not be, it got me this, everything I have, the cult-like fans who by far are the best part of everything,” he wrote.

“I said that to say I’m disappointed, everyone knows I’m a big Wizkid fan, maybe even a di*k rider on Twitter but rn I’m disappointed, I am, I can’t hide my emotions, I wasn’t even mad at the magazine article.

“Those are conversations I’ve even had behind the scenes. But the actions that followed can’t be defended, heavily degrading and undeserved but I’d keep doing my thing, carrying the most bashed and the most attacked genre on my back.

“Showing the world what a Nigerian rapper looks like. I’d keep dropping these hits, classic albums, selling out my shows, however far it takes me I’m good with it long as i can feed my family.”
