Hi there. I just joined CF. I haven't uploaded my photos yet because I'm still trying to observe. I don't want to receive unwanted messages and interests like I did on a famous Filipino online dating site. I've been there and I just don't feel good when I get attention because of my photos. I want men to read my profile, respect my preferences and be interested in me as a person, as God's beloved daughter, and not just because of my physical appearance. I'll update my profile and add my photos soon. In Christ, Liza.
UPDATE: 9 November 2019
I'm on my 4th day and I'm still observing. I noticed that there are not so many members here. Among the members, many are already inactive and the active ones are still standard members like me, so it's difficult to get to know someone. Surprisingly, some men viewed me after I viewed them. I've been receiving messages and interests/winks despite the fact that I don't have photos uploaded yet. I was surprised, glad and cautious all at the same time. I really hope to meet a true Christian man with good intentions and desires to be in a God-centered relationship/marriage.
A few days ago, I took down all my photos on a famous Filipino online dating site. I used to get so many unwanted messages and interests from men who were never interested to get to know me a little by reading my profile. It was long. Though there were men with long profiles, too, I read them. Almost all of them just viewed my photos and immediately sent me their interest or put me to their favorites. Some read my profile and respected my preferences. That's being a gentleman. Since I took down all my photos, none has viewed me especially after I viewed them. None messaged me. None sent me interest. This experience has taught me that it's not an assurance that when someone claims to be a Christian who is serious about finding a Godly woman and is not after the physical appearance but the inner beauty, it's true and he means it. In my own experience, it's not the case. It's very important for me to see if the Christian man is really an obedient child of God and rooted in Christ. A true Christian has a life that bears fruits and is focused on glorifying God rather than fulfilling his earthly desires. He has a servant's heart who rejoices not only in serving others in love but most importantly, in sharing the Gospel or the Good News.
I'll give this more time and thoughts before I upload my photos. Thank you to those who winked at me, messaged me, and have shown their interest even they haven't seen any of my photos. In Christ, Liza.
