Anyone have any recommendations? Though dating fellow Orthodox would be ideal, I am open to dating other Christians, so it does not have to specifically be an Orthodox site. Theoretically, it doesn't even have to be specifically a Christian site, though I would think it would be advisable.

I tried eligiblegreeks.com for 3 months.  I walked away empty-handed.  :(

I think someone posted an Orthodox dating site on the singles thread in Orthodox Family Forum.

Glad I don't have deja vu for no reason.  :laugh:

OK, so I'm on orthodoxandsingle.com now, but apparently you have to pay for a premium membership to be able to directly message other members...which is frustrating enough that I'm barely willing to give the site much of a chance. That seems to almost defeat the point of a dating site. Maybe I will investigate it a little more, but that just seems ridiculous.

Probably don't have enough traffic to make sufficient revenue off ads, so they have to rely on (hope on?) a membership system to pay the bills?

Add to that the fact they encourage people to involve their priest.  I think that may turn some away. I think it would also be something the priest might be uncomfortable being involved with.

Maybe there is a possibility to send some way to contact via gifts or one message daily or something like these? (from my experience from Polish dating websites)

There's the Facebook page - Orthodox Christian Singles... that has recently produced two actual engagements.  Give them a try.

Well...I went ahead and bought a subscription to OrthodoxAndSingle since it's relatively cheap and I can afford it. I wonder how this will go.

I appreciate the suggestion, but I try to avoid Facebook whenever possible.

I believe some large parishes have a social hour after Liturgy.

There have now been actual marriages that have taken place between people who have met on this FB Page. Glory be to God!!!
