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.

VeryDarkMan recalls time in detention, calls out Tonto Dikeh, Iyabo Ojo and Samklef

Published

Martins ‘VeryDarkMan’ Otse, the controversial social media critic, has called out actresses Tonto Dikeh and Iyabo Ojo — a few days after being released from police detention.

On May 22, Otse was arraigned at the federal high court in Abuja on five counts bordering on cyberstalking.

One of the charges alleged that the defendant posted videos on his Instagram handle containing information that was “grossly offensive, pornographic or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character”.

In another charge, the defendant was said to have alleged that Iyabo Ojo was having an indecent sexual relationship with her daughter, even though he knew that the information was false.

Police further claimed that the defendant alleged that Tonto Dikeh “is behind the gossip blog Gistlover”.

However, the social media celebrity pleaded not guilty to all the charges and was released on bail on June 10.

In a lengthy video via his Instagram page on Friday, Otse recounted his ordeal while in custody.

The activist said he would keep working with the police but called on the law enforcement agency to stop paying attention to online gossip.

Otse also attacked Iyabo Ojo, arguing that she called his parents “abusive names” and expected him not to retaliate.

The social media celebrity insisted that Tonto Dikeh “is behind Gistlover”, alleging that the anonymous blog stopped calling out people since his claim.

“I have five counts against me. Samklef, Tonto Dikeh, Iyabo Ojo and of course the police. If you remember the first time I was detained, I talked something about the DIGs and I was taken to the inspector general of police,” he said partly in the lengthy video.

“When I got there, this man spoke to me like a son, he did not act like someone who had the power to do and undo. He told me to fight for something good and if you have a problem, bring my petition and he will sign it.

“And I told him that if I bring a petition to the police, they always take time and sometimes they do not respond. He said from today, bring your petition and if they do not do it, come to me.”

Nedu Wazobia rejects Yvonne Jegede’s claims that he hates women

Jegede over his recent comments about her public apology, media personality Nedu Wazobia has refuted her claims that he ‘hates women.’

On June 13, 2024, the media personality posted a video to his Instagram addressing the backlash he had received over comments on his show The Honest Bunch Podcast. After being called ‘small-minded’ and toxic by the actress, Nedu debunked the claim that he hates women.

He said, “In the past episodes, I may have said some things that may have riled up some people and made you think that I hate women. I don’t hate women, I don’t. My manager is a woman, I’ve got 3 beautiful daughters and pretty much everyone around me is a woman so I don’t know where that thinking is coming from.”

Nedu emphasised that the essence of his podcast is for the guests to feel free enough to be honest and transparent.

He added, “I hear some of the conversations you people have, I don’t hate women. If you’re watching my podcast, please watch with an open mind and understand that you are watching a podcast called The Honest Bunch that would be as honest as possible no matter how uncomfortable the truth may be. The truth needs to be said.”

This comes after the dispute between him and Jegede following her appearance on the show where the actress defended Yul Edochie’s choice to embrace polygamy and take a second wife. After the backlash, she promptly apologised to Edochie’s ex-wife, May, for trivialising her pain.

After that, Nedu posted a shady message on Instagram saying, “If you talk, use your chest to stand by your words. Still, Number 1.” Jegede then called him out on Instagram in a lengthy post that same day.

Actress Shan George comments on feud between Nedu Wazobia, Yvonne Jegede

Amid the ongoing feud between Nollywood actress, Yvonne Jegede, and media personality, Nedu Wazobia, actress, Shan George, has weighed in on the issue.

In a video she posted on Instagram on June 13, 2024, George addressed the rift between Jegede and Nedu, offering her perspective on the situation and highlighting perceived faults from both parties.

She began, “You see this Nedu and Yvonne Jegede matter, the truth is that you have a right to speak out, stand to be corrected and apologise when you offend. This is what Yvonne has done and there is no need to escalate the issue.”

The actress stressed that in her opinion, Nedu was only doing his job by asking Jegede questions on the controversial episode of The Honest Bunch Podcast which recently aired. She also emphasised that the subsequent escalation and rift between the pair was unnecessary because Jegede already apologised for her comments.

“What Nedu has done is his job and his own is to ask questions and make you speak up. So at the end of the day, he hasn’t done anything wrong. It is your duty to get to that place and mind what you say but if you now go and talk too much, you apologise. I dunno why anybody is escalating this issue, she has said what she said and apologised. As far as I’m concerned, her apology is enough,” she explained.

This dispute emerged after Jegede appeared on the podcast and afterwards issued a public apology to May Edochie and women in general for her previous statements.

The actress had stated that she saw no issue in actor, Yul Edochie, taking Judy Austin as a second wife to May. She stressed that the backlash the actor had received from the public was ironic because she felt many of his critics came from polygamous homes themselves.

However, in her apology, she stated that she had not meant to trivialise May’s troubles, but was only trying to highlight the prominence of polygamy in Nigerian cultures. She also promptly apologised for her words during the show.

Then after her public apology, Nedu posted a subliminal message saying, “If you talk, use your chest to stand by your words. Still Number 1,” a post which Jegede did not take lightly. Afterwards she called him on Instagram, tagging him small small-minded.
