Christianmingle.com is arguably the most popular and successful dating site for Christians the world over. As the name suggests, it is a niche dating site that focuses on bringing like-minded Christians together to build God-centred relationships. The ‘Success stories’ section of the website shows a sample of the thousands of couples who met on the site and went on to build lasting relationships and marriages. With a clean and friendly user interface, christianmingle.com continues to be one of the most successful niche-dating sites available today.


WHAT WE LIKE

  • An active community of users who support each other
  • Affordable pricing plan

 

 


WE WE DISLIKE

  • Chat rooms can sometimes be overwhelmed by prayer requests
  • No background checks on users to verify their profile or faith.

 

 


THE SIGN-UP PROCESS

As you visit the welcome page of the website, you will encounter a sign-up prompt which will require your gender, target age range, zip code for location and an email to set up an account. Once this is done, there will be a friendly questionnaire on different aspects of your personality and lifestyle. The questions will include the usual indices such as appearance, occupation, ethnicity, education, etc. Subsequently, the next queries will be about what church you grew up in, how frequently you attend, the denomination to which you belong and the current church/ministry you follow. After this, you can choose a username and set a password of your choice.

The site also offers you a subscription to emails from other Christian based websites. It reminds the users about its commitment to faith-based interaction which is not seen in other religious dating sites.

To enhance your profile further, you can describe yourself and mention relevant things about your personality. It will be followed by citing a few ‘fun facts’ about yourself and the qualities you would like to see in your prospective partners.  Finally, you can upload a profile picture to finish your registration, and you will be taken to the site’s home page where you will be able to browse and start exploring.


MATCHMAKING, SEARCHING, & FILTERING OPTIONS

Once your ChristianMingle profile has been completed, the site will start making matches for you based on the answers you gave during the registration process. As the matches appear on your page, you can engage in ‘secret admirer,’ which is similar to the traditional ‘hot, not or maybe’ game that is used by dating sites. So you can leave reactions of ‘yes,’ ‘no’ or ‘maybe’ on the matches that the site makes for you. If you decide to click ‘yes,’ the site will offer you as a match for the other person too, to see if he/she feels the same way. Once both users mutually say ‘yes’ to each other’s profile, the match is complete. Selecting the ‘maybe’ option means that the site will keep the profile until a later time to bring it back to your attention to see if you have changed your mind. Premium users can use COMPASS, a matchmaking tool that assesses over 100 personality and character traits so that the ideal matches are made for you.

You can also set ‘Match Preferences’ according to your specifications. You can do this by rating certain qualities on a scale of ‘very important’ to ‘not important.’ Using this feature will allow your matches to be made with users who are more likely to spark your interest.

You can also use the search function to look for users. The search results can be based on who is online, based on username or by a few general parameters such as age and location. The search filter also allows you to apply specific filters such as denomination, ethnicity, education, appearance, etc.


COMMUNICATION TOOLS

Free users will mostly be limited to sending ‘smiles’ to show interest in a user. They can also make use of the pre-set messages that you can send to other users. These messages include short phrases like ‘Thank you,’ ‘Tell me more,’ ‘Wanna meet up?’, etc.

Premium members will get access to sending and receiving emails, direct messages and use the site’s message boards. Other communication methods include sending ‘flirts’ and other signals to show your interest.

The ‘Question of the week’ feature is another great platform for users to voice out their opinion and interact with each other. Users can also use the chatrooms and forums to discuss and share prayer requests. It becomes a core feature of the experience because users support and encourage each other as a community as opposed to just looking for a partner.


USER SAFETY

User privacy and protection are among the website’s top priorities at christianmingle.com. Personal and transaction info is protected through encryption. The site also provides a dedicated range of blog articles, tips, and advice on how to keep yourself safe not just on this site but dating sites in general. You can choose to show yourself as ‘offline’ if you do not wish to be seen by other users, or hide members from your search results if you decide to do so.


PRICING

Christianmingle.com is one of the more reasonable and economic paid dating sites available today. The monthly plan costs you $29.99. The 3-month subscription will cost you $56.97 at $18.99 per month. And the 6-month payment plan can be accessed by paying $83.94 at $13.99 a month.

 


CUSTOMER SUPPORT

The customer service team can be contacted either by email or phone. The website is known for its prompt and helpful customer service among other qualities.

It also has an extensive FAQs section that addresses many of the issues faced by users on online dating portals.

 


FINAL CONCLUSION

Over the years, Christianmingle.com has brought together Christians from different backgrounds into a community that is interactive and positive. It even goes beyond love and dating as seen in the friendships that have been forged through this community. When it comes to faith-based dating, there are very few sites out there that can offer the database and user-friendly options that are provided by christianmingle.com.
