An online dating company has spent the last few months surveying thousands of single Christians on their experiences in the church.
More than two thirds say they feel “socially anxious” about being single. Many of them say that the pressure to get married from other Christians makes them uncomfortable.
We’re going to talk about this on the Forum.
Have you ever felt the pressure to be in a relationship? Are you happy with your current relationship status?
Are churches too family-focused? What about singles groups? Do they feel patronising?
How do you find someone to marry anyway? Is there an imbalance between guys and girls for young adults in Christian circles? Would you consider online dating or church speed dating nights?
Netsafe is saying that one in five NZ high school students report being cyber-bullied online, or via text message or photographs.
There’s a chance that schools will be given the power to search and seize cell phones and ipads to try and combat cyber-bullying.
What do you think of this idea? Is it going too far? Do you think it would help?
Have you ever been affected by cyber-bullying?
Be part of the conversation on Sunday night from 9pm.
