How to Meet People on RealChristianSingles.com

So you want to meet people on RealChristianSingles.com? Well it certainly helps to learn from someone who's been around the site since day one and who has received thousands of messages worth of feedback from members who've attempted the trek you are making now. Many of those folks are now married or in committed relationships with folks they've met here. What was their secret? Did they just know better Christian pick-up lines?

It's tempting once you've joined to simply head straight to the "Search Members" link you see once you log in. That's one way to do it, but only doing that is going to cause you to miss out on people and features that RCS has to offer. You are limiting yourself a great deal by searching for members but ignoring the other features here.

So below I'll list the top 3 ways to meet people on RealChristianSingles.com. Who knows, you might make new friends or find the love or your life. It's up to you!

1. The message forum. This has proven to be the most effective way of making friends and even meeting people who connect with you on deeper levels.

Why? Because instead of tediously digging through profiles, the forums allow you to see the personality of others and interact with them in a public, non threatening way. You learn what they think about different topics, how they interact with others and you get to have fun with a larger group of people. You can even go through and read posts written by a certain person to learn more about them and if you want to contact them. To see all the posts by a certain person you go to their profile and click on the link near the bottom that says "Find all posts by XYZMEMBER."

So you can choose to get involved in the forum with Christian singles who enjoy, ponder and struggle with the same things you do or you can sit in the bleachers. Those who are successful here get involved in forum discussions and make an effort to be part of the community. That's how it works in real life and that's how it works here. The forums are similar to a large a room crowded with people having fascinating discussions. So mingle already! Click here to visit the forums.

2. Your profile. This site was founded in late 2003 and nothing has proved to be more true then this little jewel: If you want people to look at your profile, show them a picture!

No, this is not a beauty contest. Spare us the speeches about how shallow it is to focus on the way someone looks. No one is suggesting that's why photo albums are there. But you wouldn't walk up to someone with a bag over their head would you? A smiling face is much more welcoming than only cold, boring text. The fact of the matter is that profiles with pictures are viewed more than profiles without pictures by a long shot. In fact, the number one thought of most members who view a profile with no picture is, "What are they hiding?" So post a picture on your profile for more activity and potential on Real Christian Singles.

Next on the list of making your profile stand out is answering all the open text questions that appear on your profile. People want to know about you and second to your activity on the forum in importance is what you express in your profile. A boring one liner is usually not going to cut it. Think of it this way, if you were trying to convince a producer to make a movie about your life, what would you tell them? Well the same is true of your profile. There are thousands of profiles on this site, make your profile interesting, full and unique.

3. Live Chat. You'll see this option on the link menu on the left once you've logged in. This feature is useful for two purposes. One, let's say you see someone on the forum who interests you. You can send him or her a private message and invite them to a live chat. It can be just the two of you or you can invite others in to make it a bonified chat room. It's really up to you. One of the keys to using the features within this site instead of giving someone your email address or Istant Messanger account is that here you can easily block someone if they annoy you or hound you and you protect personal information by using our chat system. But if they have your email address, phone number or Instant Message name, it can really be a pain to change those things. So stick with the communication features on this site as long as possible to be sure you want someone to have your personal contact information. Plus, it helps keep you part of the larger community.

I wish you much success on Real Christian Singles! Just remember to protect yourself from potential scammers.
