If they cannot confirm a potential date’s maturity, then they aren’t doing you any favors. Ask your friends to find out more specifics about someone’s integrity before they refer him or her to you.If they can introduce you to someone they know is mature, then thank them and go out on the date but continue to guard your heart until you get to know that individual yourself.
Also, be open to alternate suggestions from family and friends.
Consider their recommendations if they can clearly explain why their candidate is worth meeting.
Keep your judgment sharp, and do not trust someone until you have determined his or her character.
Regardless of the bad apples, the church is still one of the best places to meet healthy singles who are passionate about sharing the love of Christ.
Most churches have sports teams, music programs, or mission trips that offer great ways to meet new people.
Find somewhere to serve short-term so that you can get exposure to people.
On the other hand, be wary of well-meaning relatives who simply want to get you married.
If they lack discretion, they may waste your time by setting you up with anyone who comes to mind. Above all, make sure that your friends and family understand the importance of character.
Church attendance does not prove that a person is a Christian.
