The Orthodox Christian Singles has evolved from a newsgroup that began in
1996 on the Listbot system. Since then, Listbot has gone out of business, and the newsgroup then transferred to Egroups,
which was eventually bought by the Yahoo Groups service.
Since January 9, 1999, the Orthodox Singles newsgroup has served as a place for us to connect
with other Orthodox Singles on a personal level and will remain an important
part of our venues for sharing our faith and ideas.
However, as our group has evolved over the years, and grown to an international level, our needs
have also evolved to include more than just a "place to meet" and share.
Hence, now we have come to a place in our history where we need a specialized forum for meeting
other Orthodox Christians who are seeking a spouse who shares their faith, and on a forum that is not secularly oriented,
nor mixed with non-Orthodox members.
