Christian Mingle Reviews

Average: • 2.4 / 5 (by 90 Users) for Christian Mingle   View Add is among the top dating sites for Christian singles searching for someone to share their lives with. The site has been in operation since 2001, and now has helped hundreds of thousands of members looking to link up with others who share their values. They currently have about 16 million members in their database.

ChristianMingle makes every effort to help members find a special someone of the Christian faith, offering a wide range of features like chatting, photos, daily matches, and anonymous private mailboxes. The interface is clean and easy to navigate, making the experience of finding love online as painless as possible.

The community was created specifically for Christian singles looking to find like-minded people for friendship, romance, or marriage, and faith influences nearly every aspect of the site. To join, new members fill out basic profile information like body type, height, education, ethnicity, occupation, and marital status. Questions about religion also form part of the basic profile – members respond to queries about the church they were born into, how often they currently attend services, and what denomination they belong to now.

When the initial profile is complete, more detailed information can be added. A “Things I like to do” section asks users about their indoor and outdoor activities. In a section titled “My Ideal Match,” users describe their ideal match based on age range, location, and height. The “Introduction & Essays” section offers an opportunity to get more personal, in the form of free response questions about first dates, past relationships, goals, and Christianity.

You also will receive daily matches which are based on your own match preferences. These can include everything from location and age range, to church activity and religion. You can pick just a few match preferences to use or select your desired traits from most parts of the profile.

A free version of the site is available, but its utility is limited. Free members can create a profile and browse other members, but can only communicate by sending flirts and commenting on the Question of the Week. Paid members can send and read emails and chat with members. A paid subscription isn’t expensive compared to many dating sites, and offers a much richer experience than the free alternative.

ChristianMingle is mobile-friendly and has a mobile version of the site which can be accessed from any smartphone browser, providing a version of the site that’s optimized for mobile use. Users on-the-go can search profiles, view photos, view matches, check their inboxes, read messages, and send smiles. A Christian Mingle dating app which offers similar features is also available for the iPhone/iPad on Apple iTunes, and Android phones on Google Play.

Another feature that sets ChristianMingle apart is the community the site has built. Members are active with comments on the Question of the Week which usually relates to current events and faith. The Worship Center is the heart of Christianity on the site, where members can make prayer requests, read a searchable Bible, partake in Bible studies discussions, and view a daily Bible verse.

  • We were both 42 when we got married.

    I met my husband 2 years ago on Christian Mingle. We used your services especially email and chatting. We were able to get to know one another with out feel stressed about meeting each other in person. Once we felt comfortable with each other we met about 7 months later. We continued to date for about 1 1/2 years when we got married. Thank you so very much. Just continue to seek God and he will answer your prayers. We were both 42 when we got married.

    Thank you.
