'Dating Becomes Her' launched last month with the aim of entertaining and encouraging other Christians – and to make ‘online dating’ less of a taboo conversation in church communities.
The Dating Becomes Her (DBH) Podcast was created by CMAA Members and Sydney friends Nat, Lucy, Be and Laura. Listeners will laugh, cry and want to learn more as the girls dive into their personal journeys of online dating. They don't hold back on the nitty-gritty of what makes it difficult, but freely discuss how the process could be better for all involved.
DBH admits they are by no means qualified love coaches or have this process figured out but are adamant that the roller-coaster experience shouldn’t be one that others journey alone.
“The reason we decided to be vulnerable and share our own stories publicly is because we had each other to talk to about the highs and lows of trying it and, once we did, we realised it’s definitely not an experience where any shame should be attached to it and there’s no good reason Christians shouldn’t talk about it openly,” Be said.
“We’re aware that not all singles in church communities have that kind of support, and online dating can be full of equally fun and tragic experiences including safety and trust concerns so we created the 'Dating Becomes Her' podcast so that if you’re someone who feels like you’re doing this whole online
dating craziness alone, you don’t have to anymore.”
DBH producer Laura said “it’s great to be part of a podcast that has conversation out in the open about things a lot of Christian women think about in private”. “We don’t all feel the same way about singleness but doing your journey with others – whatever it
looks like – is always better than doing it alone.”
