Christian Cafe Reviews

Average: • 3.2 / 5 (by 18 Users) for   View Add is one of the leading sites for connecting Christian singles online. Founded in 1999, Christian Café stands out thanks to the thousands of success stories that can be found in the site’s testimonials section. Christian Cafe is also Christian owned and operated, a fact that sets it apart from the other major players in the Christian dating niche.

A seven-day free trial is available for those who are interested in exploring faith-based dating. Three additional free days are granted when a photo is posted. During the free trial, members have access to nearly every feature available on Christian Café. Free users can create a profile, search for matches, and communicate with other members – all without spending a penny. Only two features not included in the seven-day free trial:online chatting and the audio and video portions of instant messaging.

The sign up process is very simple. New members fill out basic information like gender, location, and birth date, then respond to a page of multiple choice questions. The multiple choice questions cover all the basic information that would be expected in a dating profile – education, occupation, marital status, appearance, drinking and smoking habits, personality type – plus a few questions that explore their religious beliefs in greater depth. The “Faith” section includes questions about your Christian faith, denomination, and church involvement.

After the multiple choice questions, new members are presented with ten free response questions. Any question you choose to skip won’t appear on your profile, but you can return to it at any time to complete your answer. This is the most important part of the profile, where your personality really has the chance to shine.

Christian Café prides itself on the quality of the community it creates. With that in mind, contact information of any kind - email address, Web site URL, IM information, phone number, street address - is not permitted in profiles. All pictures are screened before being posted to the site, and shots that include bikinis, cleavage, or excessive skin will not be approved. Christian Café reserves the right to remove or modify photos at their discretion. Offensive language and advertising are also not tolerated.

Searches can be conducted in many different ways on Christian Café. The basic search feature allows you to conduct searches based on any profile information, and save up to five of your favorite searches. For more in-depth searching, users can specify how long their desired date has been a member of the site, when their prospective partner last signed into the site, and whether they’re looking for exact matches only or exact matches and close matches.

Members can also search by who’s currently online, new members, birthdays, and usernames. The QuickMatch feature lets Christian Café do some of the work for you. QuickMatch uses the information in your profile to find matches based on how close their answers were to yours in the areas of age, type of relationship, Christian faith, and location.

The most unique features of Christian Café are the forum and prayers. The forum is home to discussions about general interest topics like music, travel, and current events, as well as a wide range of dating-specific discussions and conversations about Christianity. The prayers page allows members to post prayers when they are in need of support and show their support for other members by clicking an icon to indicate they have prayed for them.

Christian Café has collected more than 3,000 dating success stories, a track record that hasn’t gone unnoticed here on Dating Sites Reviews. Our members have voted it their top pick for Christian dating for a number of years. Hundreds of new singles are joining every day, making Christian Café the perfect meeting place for religious singles.

Positives of Christian Cafe

  • Inactive profiles are removed after 90 days. Most dating services do not remove inactive, unused profiles, thus keeping their membership numbers artificially high. ChristianCafe keeps their database of active accounts fresh
  • Detailed search options allow you to return only members who are currently online or who have been online in a predefined number of days
  • New members receive a no-obligation, seven-day free trial (+3 more for posting a profile photo); a credit card is not required for the free trial
  • Site shows the number of new singles who have joined since the preceding Sunday
  • No online advertising for paying members
  • Scores high in customer service by a major media outlet (see Story)

Negatives of Christian Cafe

  • One-month price is above average compared to other online dating services. Use the seven-day trial to determine if you enjoy the site and wish to continue the membership. The three-, six- and twelve-month memberships are a much better savings
