Its very very important in God's eyes that Christians do not date non-Christians, no matter what. How many Christians have, in the long run, compromised by marrying the wrong person under pressure. The pressure to marry anyone, irrespective of the faith of the prospective faith is sometimes very strong; more so, in the case of those who have grown and are too old for their age to find someone to marry.
Anyway, it is better to stay single for life than to marry the wrong person or by marrying someone outside of our Christian faith. I had every opportunity to marry outside of my Christian Faith as there were then and still now hardly any genuinely converted born-again committed Christians. The pressure is too strong to marry the un-believing partner; but that's something that the Bible forbids; for what fellowship does light hath with darkness? Or the unbelieving infidel with the saint?
It is my sincere prayer to God that He will make it possible for true believers of one sex to reach out the hearts of the single believers of the opposite sex in their fellowship and thus tie the marital knot.
