Hello every one!
a friend of mine told me about a site called (copticmatch.com) i thought in the beginig he was kidding but he wasn't .
i'm single 25 y.o that can't wait to have a wife and kids but i never thought such a sercice can exist for coptics..
i like the idea and i don't see any reason for it to be againest our religion speciouly that i ben told that ava mouses knows about it...question is what do u guys think about it
a girlfriend ? [move][/move]
but yeah... i think that seems more natural. You make all these decisions that seem to mean little and then one day you order lunch and bam you meet the one :)
so u don't wanna meet her in a coptic website to match coptic singles but u ok to meet her in a club...
i'm not 100% with copticmatch thing but i'm 100 % againest the drink unless u wanna bye her a can of diet cocke with lime lol
i'm sorry didn't got what u meant from the first time but if that what u wanted to say then i agree with you.
i owe u a cup of coffe and barnes and nobels is my favorite place .and i also think it's the best place for such a thing .
but yet u didn't tell me why not the net u can chat online as well and save urself 3.95 $ for the mochachino lol
But now on the topic, I think that the age requirement should be 23. I mean for the guys it should be 23. This allows the guys to graduate from college first. It can be lower for women who have their academic life solidified. But even then it can still be considered wrong. People will go into this site who think they will find a match right away, that most likely will not happen. I dont think God needs the help of the internet to reveal the person he has selected for us.
i'm asking god to send me the right girl whom he thinks is the right one for me but she is not gonna knock my door
-knock knock god has sent me to u !!!!!!
nad he is not gonna send her name and phone num to ur e_mail address
-u got mail
would u guys do it???????????? ;D ;D ;D
..just an opinion
yea guys...what happened to our good old belief that God will bring us to that person. If you believe in that...why do you need a website. Since the Orthodox Church believes in that, why would they have a site for this? These sites are not run BY our church, they only use its name to help advertise. Although Bishop Moussa may know about this, it doesn't mean he approves of it.
..just an opinion
Bravo. Bigad Bigad.
Uh… this definitely isn’t how I plan on getting married…
About CopticMatch.com.. i haven't decided yet if i like the idea or not.
Like many have hinted at previously, marriage, like priesthood, monkhood, celibacy and other life styles is a calling from God. Everyone is called by God to follow a certain life.
You're all right that marriage is just supposed to happen naturally, meeting the person and the such. But many of us actively look for potential spouses. Whether in church, work, school, or out in the world (church being preferrable here, lol). (Actually, in my church we call the youth meeting the "singles and looking to get married" meeting, as a joke).
This Coptic site is just one more way of actively looking for a spouse. Just because its a new method that involves new technology doesn't make it worse, it's just a different way to do the same thing. Only difference is that its a very obvious way.
I think as orthodox we're used to doing things the traditional way (orthodox means traditional or unchanging). And this site is not very traditional.
I'm curious to see how many ppl will sign up to this thing though.
Sorry to bore you all on my very first post! :o)
Now back to my original question, how do you start a new topic??
For the record, i have nothing to do with that site. If you looking for a Coptic store however, go to CopticCenter.com (hehe.. had to add that in). God bless you all.
To start a new topic go to the home page click on forums, then click on one of the subdivisions on the new page and it should give you a list of topics that are currently started. If you look in the upper margin there will be a new topic button where you can start any topic you want within certain limits.
No it was not a bore, we are happy to answer any questions.
This is fair warning, this site can get addictive. See Im on this site at one o'clock in the morning. Actually i am writing a paper and taking a little break.
someone told me about that (which is different than copticsingles.com that has all kinds ýof people on there). So basically this is the same way that Teta used to do it in the old age ýonly now we use e-mail, lol. ý
Call me old fashion (go ahead, call me old fashion, I am waiting, lol) but I believe that ýthe best way to get married is you already know someone (male or female) from church ýor a related activity. you become good friends, and if it is the will of God, you move on to ýthe next step. I have seen people get married this way and they are some of the best ýcouples I know. You already know the person, when your friends, you usually don't try ýto impress or put your best foot forward like if you are going on a date. You see these ýpeople in their "Natural" state. ý
Topper, I agree with all what you said except one thing ý
I don't think that the percentage is off because of lack of spirituality on the ladies part, I ýthink its more of a cultural thing. Egyptian women are rarely in pursuit of marriage on ýtheir own or (for a lack of a better word) go after a guy. Here in the US that is different.ý
Again, just as I mentioned earlier, these are my 2 cents...ý
God bless you all and goodluck.
i don't think i made myself clear from the beginig by beeing interrested in discussing this topic i don't mean that this is the best way to do it but it's just another way to meet ppl get to know them and if god well ,u may like them and get married .
let's say i met a girl in this web site ,i will talk to her as a friend get to know her and perhaps meet her and may be fall in love with her .... i agree that this could happened any where else such as church or college but the only difference in this web site u won't have to wonder if she/he is ready to get into a serious relationship or not or may be looking for one ...............
CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG ,I DON'T MIND IT.....
