Real relationships take time, effort, and commitment. Yet they are worth it, as they allow us the safety and the mirror to develop compassion, virtues, satisfaction and meaning.
Manila, Philippines (PRWEB) May 30, 2013
The Filipino Dating site Christian Filipina has introduced new community features including testimonial videos and a forum section. Its owners suggest these features may be the building blocks for accountability in dating websites, arguing that dominant but sometimes questionable online dating providers in the implied conspiracy-riddled marketplace might be forced by consumers follow their example to allow consumers to identify legitimate dating services.
"Dating site customers today have learned that they need to look below the surface of shiny website interfaces and professional television commercials. They want sites that work to build real relationships," said Peter Christopher, who together with his wife Milyn Christopher founded and run Christian Filipina. "Singles today are battered by a barrage of misleading advertisements.
"Good men and women are bombarded with fake, compensated, seo-propelled reviews, inundated by billboards promoting infidelity and prostitution, and baited by fake messages and profiles on fraudulent websites promising social discovery but frequented mainly by scam artists. And yet, in the same environment, on sliver-like advertising budgets and with little or no outside funding, reputable sites are taking hold and showing that men and women can still build meaningful relationships. There is no shortcut. Real relationships take time, effort, and commitment. Yet they are worth it, as they allow us the safety and the mirror to develop compassion, virtues, satisfaction and meaning. The advertisements out there would lead you to believe that because there's an app for prostitution, adultery, and promiscuity, that it is therefore now desirable to engage in those activities. What a waste of human effort. True companionship is what human beings need.
"In our four years at Christian Filipina, we have already helped thousands of real men and women to connect and form actual committed relationships. We are now able to share many of these success stories with others. We call on other sites in Asia, whether paid or free, whether focused on Chinese Dating, Philippine Dating, or elsewhere in the Asian region, to share their success stories with video interviews as well. Today's consumers are learning that careful research is important to differentiate singles sites that work from those that are just sophisticated scams. And they are learning that being part of a community can help in taking that step to build a real relationship with another human being."
Christian Filipina's forum features public, private, and premium sections. More than 400 topics have already been raised, receiving collectively over 5,000 responses from Christian Filipina members.
More than 140,000 men and women from the Philippines and other countries have joined Christian Filipina.
