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.

Singles Christian

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.

Interesting Comments:

You way want to update your info on eHarmony, as closing a match has been changed to blocking. (Though I am using the beta of their new interface, so that change may be part of those features that aren’t activated for everyone yet.) There is one major flaw I’ve found with Christian Mingle, which is their “church you grew up in” and “church attending” system. You can only filter matches by the former. I assume most people (like me) care much more about where you are now than where you were. You could have grown up atheist, or in a cult for all I care, as long as you know Jesus now. I’m always amused by how many people mark “church I grew up in” as “not sure yet”, an answer that I assume is rarely accurate but likely a result of people trying to compensate for the strange filtering system. One site you might look at later is okcupid.com – it’s completely free and one of my best friends found his wife on there. While not targeted at Christians, there question system really seems to weed out people better than others I’ve tried. Eharmony makes the mistake of highlighting questions where your answers match, while okcupid lets you specify the answers you’ll accept, and rate their importance when used for matching. For example, a question like “would you prefer to be the person initiating communication” would be treated by the two systems very differently. On okcupid you could say “accept ‘no’ or ‘either way is fine’, and the answer is only a little important.” On eharmony it would highlight that you both said “I MUST initiate!” as compatibility. And on okcupid it’s also possible to go straight to “unacceptable answers”, and see if there are any non-starters. Plus you can re-answer a question right in the results, very convenient when their answer makes you realize you marked something wrong.

Christian Mingle, is an ok site, but I find that their matching system is flawed. They often give you matches that don’t really coincide with your match criteria. I set my match criteria and set much of it to “very important” and they often give me matches that don’t match my criteria at all. (I’m not trying to write a rant, so if it sounds like one then I apologize.) I’ve been a member of the site for almost a year now, and have decided to stop my membership, because the site doesn’t often serve the purpose and it seems that most of the people on the site don’t are just trying it because someone talked them into it and so they have a profile on the site but that’s about it or they claim to be just looking for friends. The site is mostly frustrating because you can hardly get any one to respond to an email, or any other form of communication.’

I have been on OKCupid for 2 years and have found that it is very easy to be matched with Christians. They have a number of questions that ask about your faith (i.e. “How many hours a week do you devote to spiritual activity?” and “How important is God in your life?”) that you can be matched on. I have found that nearly all of my matches of 95% or higher are serious Christians like I am. With OKCupid’s extensive question list (most people answer 150-300; some answer more than 1000), I can learn a lot about a person’s faith. For example, in their profile, they may talk about how active they are in church, maybe even a worship leader, and I think, “Great, a devoted Christian!” But then I find on the question, for example, “How many dates do you need before you have sex with someone?”, instead of answering “Only after the wedding,” they may answer “3-5 dates.” Yes, I have seen this quite a bit. Having read about other dating sites (not tried any others yet), I feel confident that OKCupid is the best way to find Christians and know the depth of their faith and how they live it out. And finally…OKCupid is completely free! There is a paid option, but it’s just extras, not essentials like at other sites. You can message anyone and receive messages under the free option. Also there are many filtering options for searches: Choices for “Christian, ” “Catholic,” distance, how long since they last logged in, etc. — again, under the free option. Don’t overlook this excellent source for finding a Christian mate. Especially since it’s free!

Human Rainbow Inc. (OKCupid) are discriminating against christians based on the questions you answered “yes” or “no” to.
Example:
– Is homosexually a Sin?
– Is Donald Trump wall wrong?
– Do you believe sex before marriage is okay?

As a Christian I answered those questions honesty and I was immediately banned.

I had a friend join the website as an experiment to see if they would do the same thing to them and they did. OKCupid are they have had disgusting questions regarding people over weigh, people of ethnicity, the mentally challenged. I am just waiting for a class action suit to take place and I pray that it is not settled case but won’t that wins over trial and reparations made to those who were targeted. They should be boycotted and sued big league. Maybe the DOJ will do it or perhaps even better the ACLU.

So, at 35, and still yet to find the right man to marry, would the online dating world be full of desperate souls seeking marriage so their lives could begin? Or maybe I’d turn out to be one of those fortunate ones who shares in their wedding toast, ‘My husband is the best thing I found on the Internet.’

For two months I would trial online agencies from my current home in a small town in northern California. I also roped in two girlfriends based in London, who are also single, and in their 30s. They agreed to take on the world of online dating from home in the UK.

I would sign up to both secular and exclusively Christian websites, both paid and free, adding in the latest craze of ‘hook-up’ dating apps. On every dating site or app I tried, I would clearly state that I was a Christian, and that spirituality was ‘very important’ to me.

I procrastinated starting out on my assignment for a week as I battled with the ego and the fear of looking desperate. I’d had serious relationships in the past, and the main feedback my pastors had given me was not that I wasn’t ready for marriage, nor wouldn’t make a great wife, but that I simply didn’t know what I wanted.
