Christian Singles Charleston
Welcome to the premier site for Christian singles in Charleston, WV. It’s the perfect time to do something for yourself–so why not explore your city while finding your ideal match? Charleston is full of culture and history, and there are few places that can beat a city in the South. Getting to know your city can help you get to know yourself. West Virginia is the most northern state in the South and the population tends to be on the mature side, so there is an interesting mix of personalities in this forested state.
Often, the way that a state decides to identify itself can tell you a lot about the character of its citizens. In West Virginia, where the state bird is a cardinal and the state flower is the rhododendron, you can see that pretty things get the attention they deserve. In fact, the entire state is covered with beautiful landscapes, thanks to a climate that keeps the moisture in the air. There’s so much green that you can hardly look around without seeing bright, verdant plant life. If you love humidity, this is the place to be.
Any review of Charleston or West Virginia couldn’t be complete without at least a nod to the history of the area. When Fort Lee, the first lasting settlement in the area, was built, Charleston became a center for salt wells. While looking for more places to drill salt wells, natural gas was also discovered, and these two industries were Charleston’s top businesses for several years, even up through World War I. In the 50s, all roads led to Charleston–interstates 64 to 77 and 79 were built to lead into the heart of the city, putting Charleston within driving distance for over half of all Americans.
West Virginia is full of other firsts and innovations, too. It was home to the first Mother’s Day celebration in the early 1900s, and it was the first state to enact a sales tax. If you love fruit, you can thank Clay County for the Golden Delicious apple, and advertising execs can thank the Block Brothers Tobacco Company for instigating some of the first official outdoor advertising. They used to paint buildings with their slogan, encouraging people to smoke their tobacco.
When you live in Charleston, there is a lot to be proud of, such as the launching of one of the first steamboats in West Virginia by James Rumsey in 1787. Or how about applauding Chuch Yeager, who broke the sound barrier in 1947? If you haven’t already, take some time to appreciate the New River Gorge Bridge, the longest steel arch bridge in the United States. Experiencing the history of your home with another person can not only open your eyes to much history, it can draw you closer to the person you’re with. Finding someone to enjoy the state with is easy, and can lead to adventures in places you never expected to find. So, if you're a Christian, single, and living in Charleston, you've come to the right place to find others like you.
