3 Christian Sites To Consider
There are sites which are specifically geared towards Christians, such as ChristianCupid.com, eHarmony and ChristianCafe.com. These sites understand what Christians are looking for, and that Christianity isn’t a one-size-fits-all term when it comes to dating. Plus, Christian dating sites are run with Christian values in mind.
There are many different ways to live a Christian lifestyle. Christian sites provide you with an opportunity to discuss how much time you attend church, how your practice your religion and just generally elaborate on what Christianity means to you. Since over 77% of the country identifies as Christian, an opportunity to share your personal beliefs
is a great way to narrow down your search.
Tips for Online Dating
Just because you’re a Christian doesn’t mean you’re not also looking for other qualities in a partner, too. ChristianCupid.com, for instance, is an example of a site where you can search for partners based on a number of criteria of your choosing. You can search for men or women within certain miles of your zip code. You can search by age, number of children or even physical characteristics.
The initial set up is pretty simple. You just fill out a simple, but thorough, survey. The questions range from your height and weight to some of your personal habits, such as how often you may drink and how much money you make. Of course, you never have to answer any questions you don’t want to.
You’re also given an opportunity to write a bit about yourself and what you’re looking for. While it may seem daunting, as long as you speak from the heart you should do fine. Adding a favorite Bible verse is always a nice way for other Christians to get a sense of who you are.
Additionally, you can post a few pictures of yourself on your profile. Profiles where the person posts clear photographs of themselves always get the most responses. Of course, on Christian sites the user photos are always very tasteful, and typically all smiles.
Finding a Match
Once your profile is complete, it’s even easier to find your potential matches on the site. This is because there’s a quick comparison chart which compares your survey results to the results of the profile you’re looking at.

Our Success Story!
Michael and I met on a website called “Christian Cafe”. I was almost through with dating the wrong guys, and Michael filled out a profile on one site, and it resulted in ZERO matches! We didn’t give up…and neither should you. We have been married 11 years now.
The beautiful thing about our day and age is the internet has made it possible for you to speed date like never before. You don’t have to go through the awkward conversations in the grocery store to find out if the person is single and looking. You can read their lives like an open book before even emailing them on a dating website.
What I am finding as I am talking to people is many older people are dating online and finding success! You need to find the right website, as I am hearing many sites are operating like hook up connections.
There is hope out there to find the right person, and they can love God with all their hearts….and be waiting for that special person to settle down with.
I want you to know there are men who have high moral values, and are waiting for a wife to marry. They are upstanding women who are looking for a decent man who is faithful as well.
I would encourage anyone who is a believer and single to sign up to a CHRISTIAN dating website and just browse and see for yourself just HOW many potential matches are out there. Often times you don’t have to fill out an extensive profile just to take a look.
When you do decide to seriously date online, spend some time to really filling out a decent profile. Take a variety of professional photographs that show your passions in life. Fill out what your hopes and dreams are in life…and put your best foot forward.
I believe when it comes to profiles one of the most beautiful aspects of dating online is the conversations that can take place back and forth through emails, and letters. This might be the highlight of being able to date online.
If I can give any piece of advice… If you do jump on the phone with that other person… continue to email and share your thoughts through writing. It can be one of the best ways to get to know someone on a deeper level.
Being single can be difficult, but never before have we had the tools like today for finding a partner in life….
Christian Cafe Dating Review
The sign up process is quick and you can have a profile up in less than 10 minutes or spend more time making your profile more attractive and deep. You will be asked to fill out basic information like your gender, birth date, where you live and such. Next up are a range of multiple choice questions about other common dating site information like your job, education, if you are single or divorced, what your appearance is like, if you smoke or drink and such. More important are follow up questions about your faith where you can choose which denomination you belong to, your level of observance and your involvement in your church as well as choose what you are looking for in that regard. Last is a 10 question questionnaire where you are asked more personal questions and the place to let your personality shine even more. You of course also have the option to add photos to your profile and all photos are screened and approved to ensure they are suitable.

I took this screen shot for a brother in Christ looking to date online. While I am not sure what facebook dating is like… it might be worth looking through. The downside of dating on facebook is there is no information on the person…and you cannot search through profiles in a group like Christian dating websites. You cannot look by location…or common interests, or age brackets.
Its been 11 years since I have went on these sites…..but even back then I was impressed with the search results which allowed me to narrow down the search results. There is hope!

A Review Of Christian Dating Websites
That said, there are some free Christian dating sites out there. Here’s a quick run-down of the few we’ve come across:
Christian Date had less than 100 men in the 22-40 age range in the entire state of Texas. They had less than 200 women in the same age range. Numbers aren’t on your side with that site.
Fusion 101 is a free Christian dating site that is based in the U.K. After setting up a free registration we got to a screen telling us there were over 600 people in line ahead of us waiting for their profile to be approved. Ours would be evaluated within the week, but if we wanted to Fast Track it, a guy named Edward, who is the creator of the site, could do so if we sent him $3 (pounds, maybe?) via PayPal.
Christian Dating for Free is one of many in the eDating for Free brands (including, but not limited to, SinglesHindu, Free Dating Jewish, and LDS Singles Free). When you go to the site, you don’t have to enter an email address or anything to sign up, which means anyone on the internet can see your profile without so much as an email address for registration. Real Christian Singles works the same way.
There are other free Christian dating sites that are not specifically “Christian,” but Christians use, like OKCupid and Plenty of Fish. And while you’ll probably have no problem getting matches on either site, weeding through the overabundance of matches to find like-minded Christians poses its own problem. [Check out our more extensive OKCupid Review or our Plenty of Fish breakdown.]
Ultimately, though, the problem with free Christian dating sites is that if most people are going to use a free online dating vehicle, they’re going to use one of the more popular mobile-only dating apps like Tinder, Hinge, or Coffee Meets Bagel. Setting up a profile is easy on these apps, and it’s usually tied to one’s Facebook account.
