It is said that “godliness is a virtue, “ which would make a godly
person a ‘virtuous’ person. That makes it attractive, or creates a
powerful incentive to search for someone who would be a ‘virtuous’ date
in the religious arena. The first and most obvious religious place
thought about to find a religious-minded date is undoubtedly the church.
Looking for a date among your church congregation makes sense on many
levels because there are several advantages to consider.

the most obvious advantage is that as a member or a regular attendant
at the church, you have some familiarity with others who attend the
church. The congregation of the church is somewhat like a family and so
there is a certain level of understanding that exists among everyone.
basic level of familiarity makes it easier to feel comfortable to go on
a date with someone because the person will not be a total stranger.
Even if it’s a situation where you don’t know and never met the person
at any time while you attended church, it’s likely that there is another
church member who you could ask about your potential date.
individual from church therefore means there is a strong chance you can
get a reference about the potential date, so that you would have some
advance knowledge before you go on an actual date.
Dating someone who is religious-minded like yourself means your date
will likely have certain qualities.
You can safely assume that religion
and being spiritual will be important to your potential date, as those
qualities are to you. And if the person is religious and spiritual, then
he or she also should possess other appealing qualities such as being
honest, genuine, and have a positive outlook from life. When you decide
to go on dates, it means that you and the other person have an initial
attraction to each other and want to find out if there are other
qualities you both possess that will make the two of you good partners
for a possible future life together.
By dating someone who already has a
quality – being religious – and others that are important to you, it
can make you more relaxed by reducing some of the initial anxiety about
what your new date is like.
If a potential date is found at the church you attend, it means that
you and the person will have a similarity in religious belief. That’s
important because disagreements can arise in situations where there are
differences related to religion. Having similar religious beliefs and
faith as your date means there is a stronger possibility for the two of
you to have more harmony.
Finding a date at church also means there is a reduced likelihood you
and your date will have disputes about where to go on a date. Because
religion will play an important role in the lives of you and your date,
the types of dates you go on will have to meet that quality of being
suitable to your religious beliefs.
If you also date someone who
has the same religious beliefs as yourself, especially if you both
attend the same church, you also can experience growing together in
spirituality and knowledge of your faith. As this happens, it would mean
that you both would be forming a closer bond and the dating experience
would also deepen and become more meaningful.

The dates you go on also may be different from those a non-religious
person would enjoy. For two religious-minded individuals, dating will
not strictly serve the purpose of being fun and enjoyable. While on a
date, you likely will go to places and do things that also serve the
purpose of enhancing your religious belief and spirituality.
