Try online dating site that is set toward christian. I know lots of Jews use a match maker but I don't think you all have such things

Church?

I never heard anyone OC say that he/she met his/her spouse at church. There is a great chance of meeting a future mate by becoming a Sunday school member, but I don’t want to join for the wrong reason. Wanna see if there are other options…

Church would seem to be a good place to start...but you and I both know that the likelihood of there being another single Orthodox Christian at church under the age of 40 is akin to the Mormons being right afterall.

There is an Orthodox Christian dating site and it is great if you are interested in scam artists.  Otherwise, probably not worth the effort.  (Not joking, I have met three wonderful ladies on there, all of them daughters of Nigerian generals looking for a safe bank account to store their fathers' millions in until the civil unrest cools down...)

If you live in a larger city you might try one of the mainstream dating sites, just when you search put "Orthodox" in one of the keywords (Match.com) or like on Christian Mingle you can sort based on denomination and oddly enough, the second largest denomination in the world is on there!  If you live in a small or medium sized area, you are probably out of luck.  (I got three pages of matches when I set the search range to 500 miles.  100 miles = zilch.)

Otherwise, you might ask your priest if he has any suggestions or if he knows anyone.  Mine told me to loose weight and wash my face/shave, which was some pretty good advice!  He didn't know anyone looking, though.

Honestly, the best suggestion I have for you is to say an Akathist to the Theotokos and hope for the best.  That's what I have been trying.

Are there mail order husbands?  Not that I recommend this option.

I was going to suggest that we get married and kill two birds with one stone.  Then I realized we live in the same town, and that might be creepy.

I would choose one that has the most members in your area like if your from the Us then one that has most Us members but Just cause people join these sites they may not be as christian as they claim to be but you may have to do some weeding out. I would of suggest me but I'm not christian so  that leaves me out lol  ;D I hope G-d leads you to the right person

I have heard of Orthodox Christians who have met online through posting and sending Private Messages at Orthodox forums, but I have also heard of Orthodox Christians who have met their future spouse at Inquiry classes (either attending as an inquirer/catechumen or an interested parishioner), Orthodox Bible Studies, or volunteering at an Orthodox Christian summer camp.

This has got me thinking maybe I'll make an Orthodox Match Maker site where people can answer questions and what not and the staff can match them up. In the Jewish circles Match makers can make up to around 2,000 a match that leads to a marriage as most couples tip the match maker. So I guess I'm really asking if this would be something that the singles in the Orthodox would like to see leave me some feed back as I check around for a dome names

A lot of priests recommend that young men and women in the parish attend the Bible Study or Inquiry Class. He is also very careful to tell members of the parish not to volunteer to be a godfather/godmother if they have any romantic inclinations toward any of the inquirers/catechumens.

Of course. Girls learn that certain guys are volunteering, and so they likewise volunteer.
Years ago, my son volunteered and said that the odds for guys were quite good.

However, my son found his future wife when he attended the Greek Orthodox Summer Camp at the tender age of 12/13. It was love at first sight as they danced the night away. He celebrated his thirteenth birthday while at camp ... so the campers tossed him into the pool.

Hmm.  Do the Serbs have a summer camp?

There is a huge Orthodox event in a village of Grabarka. There is a monastery in there that is visited by several thousands of people during Transfiguration. There is a labour camp organised in there by the Orthodox Youth Organisation where they help the nuns to organise everything. I've heard opinions that if you really need to find a spouse (for example you are graduating the Seminary) you should took part in that camp.

LOL. I didn't know how to translate it. It's a typical youth camp but all participants are obliged to work in favor of the organisers.

These are pictures from 2009: http://www.cerkiew.pl/index.php?id=fotoreportaze&tx_ttnews[tt_news]=11551&cHash=a3c4a6a43c

It is hard to say it in English with just a single word.  They have a camp every summer where the participants help out the nuns with work around the monastery.   

It is circumstances like these that make my work interesting.  It is fun to argue with my editor over such slight mistranslations.

Actually there are a few of them organised each year (periodically or one time) in different places. The Grabarka one is the most known and popular.

Cool.  I enjoyed looking through the pictures.  Next time I visit Poland, I really have to make it more of a point to see some of the Orthodox culture there.  My last trip was devoted to seeing drunken English stag weekenders / Krakow and sorting out visa issues at the Ukrainian consulate.  And my relatives keep complaining that I live so close and never visit...sigh a week with relatives in Ostrowiec Świętokrzyski isn't exactly my dream vacation.

I hadn't even thought of going the personal invitation route.   I'll have to look into this.  Between my US passport and my wife's Ukrainian passport, the only neighboring country we can both visit without a visa is Moldova.  It is a nice place to visit, but we've already been there plenty of times.

So, whatever happened to OrthodoxCircle social networking site?
I definitely picked up a 'let's get together' aspect on it, especially when such an old, staid (boring) married guy such as I began receiving unsolicited PM's there from single Orthodox ladies asking questions of a searching nature.
