ABOUT US

EpiscopalianSingles.net is an online dating service that caters to single, Christian, and Asian men and women who are looking for love and marriage. It is our goal to provide Christian singles with a safe environment in which to meet, get to know each other, and fall in love. We want you to find your life's partner for the purpose of marriage. If you are a Christian, dating with an intention to get married, this website is for you.

While our manual approval process helps to ensure a safe environment, it is not a background check, nor do we provide a background check. Each member is encouraged to run a background check if the relationship is progressing to end up with a life time commitment. Your greatest weapon against harm of any kind is your God given common sense. We suggest you follow these common sense guides in order to enhance the quality of your experience with EpiscopalianSingles.net.

ALWAYS THE PERFECT FIT

This site is dedicated to "Marriage Minded Christian Singles" where their primary reason to date is to find their soul mate. Dating with the intention to get married is the essential part of this web site. This site is not for casual dating or friendship.

Move Slowly :

You have all the time in the world. Do not rush. This site is only for singles that have the full intention to get married. Just because we promote dating with the intention to marry, it does not mean that you make short cuts and marry the first person with whom you share a date. We want you to move slowly and find your soul mate regardless of how long that may take.

Trust Your Gut :

To this end, the most important aspect to approach slowly on EpiscopalianSingles.net is the first date with a list of questions about your date. There is no need to hurry to meet anyone. Utilize our email and chat system to really get to know those with whom you plan to spend time with. Listen to that little voice inside of you that warns you when something is not quite right and heed that warning, maintaining a chat connection with that person until you are convinced that you want to meet them or stop corresponding with them all together. Report to us any and all unusual activity, regardless of how small or insignificant it may seem. If your gut says, it is wrong… report it

Fiercely Protect Your Anonymity :

Never give out your personal information to someone you meet on the internet whether you are on this website or not. Even with all of the precautions EpiscopalianSingles.net  takes to protect its members, bad things can still happen to good people if they do not protect themselves from it. Protect your personal identifying information such as the following.

  • Your full name;
  • Your personal email address;
  • Your home address;
  • Your phone number;
  • Your date of Birth;
  • Any other information that can be used to ascertain your identity and your location;

It also makes sense that when you decide to communicate with a Christian single off-site of your area, use a free email account from Yahoo, Gmail, or perhaps, Hotmail.

Remember Who Is In Control :

God is in control of your EpiscopalianSingles.net  experience through you. This gives you the prerogative to take the following precautions.

  • Guard your identity as mentioned above;
  • Never let yourself be pressured into meeting or a date until you are ready;
  • Tell several people you now where you will be, how long you will be, and with whom;
  • Do not deviate from the date plan unless you tell someone you know beforehand;
  • Never be talked into going to a location where there are no people and avoid going home with someone you don't know;
  • Do not invite your date to your home until you KNOW that it is safe;
  • Meet in public and bring your own transportation;
  • Guard your drink (and food) and if you forget, order anew or go without;
  • Avoid alcohol on the first or all dates (Use your best judgment);
  • Have a plan. A good backup plan today is better than a perfect backup plan tomorrow, when it might be too late. A good plan that works well is to instruct your friends or family to contact the police if they do not hear from you at a specific time or if you do not answer your phone.;
  • You might also hide a second phone on your person with an active GPS;

If you follow these simple, common sense rules of dating you will avoid putting yourself in a dangerous situation. The safest website in the world cannot guarantee your safety offline. It is up to you to protect yourself and be safe.

A Word about Assault/Date Rape :

A person is sexually assaulted in the United States every two minutes. Of these sexual assaults, a full 73% are committed by someone the victim is acquainted with. It is someone that he or she knows but with whom they are not necessarily friends. Alcohol and drugs are used in the majority of date rapes. (From the Center for Family Justice) The common sense actions outlined on this may help protect you in all areas of your life.

Having Manual Approval helps EpiscopalianSingles.net  control a large portion of incidents that would otherwise occur on a dating website, however, nothing is 100% foolproof. We, EpiscopalianSingles.net, do not conduct background checks on all of its members although we do reserve the right. This means that you must conduct your own thorough investigation. Google will give you a surprising amount of information on a person if you ask the right questions.

More Common Sense Actions to Protect Yourself :

  • Invite family members or friends to join you for your first date or two, or if you prefer to be alone with the member, at least have friends "be" at your date location. If you are meeting for coffee, having friends at the coffee shop coincidentally is fine.;
  • Do not give anyone the opportunity to slip drugs into your food or drink. If you feel you may have taken your eyes off your drink, leave it and order a new one.;
  • Carry a protection device such as pepper spray.;
  • Until you have conducted a successful background check upon the individual you are considering getting to know better, you must assume he or she may have a criminal record and take the necessary precautions.;
  • Always take sexual gestures or comments seriously;
  • If you are assaulted, solicited, or feel threatened, contact 911 immediately and follow through on your complaints;

Please note that Christian Singles Commitments Corporation and any and all websites affiliated with them, including EpiscopalianSingles.net are not responsible for any damages, assaults, or criminal intent of any kind resulting from dates that you make through them.
