Christian Mingle is everything Christian singles could want in a faith based online dating website. Christian values are clearly at the centre of everything the website is about, from the faith based questions on sign up, to the pledge every member agrees to that they will act honourably, as well as the religious extras such as faith videos and daily bible verses. As well as this, there are great communication features, matchmaking functionality, as well as a powerful search tool. The only dating site that Christian singles need in the UK.
Everything you would expect from a premier online dating website is available from Christian Mingle. They have great communication tools with both inbox messaging and IM, as well as match preferences you can set yourself and change whenever you like, allowing you control over your suggestions before you even get to the search page.
You can send smiles or use the Secret Admirer tool to express interest, and read and create in depth profiles, with the help of up to 8 photos. For ease of use, we love the favourites and block list too. Try the Question of the Week for a fun insight into other members on Christian Mingle and their thoughts on interesting topics of conversation.
With all this great mainstream dating functionality, they haven’t forgotten that this is a religious dating experience. The worship centre still plays a key role, and is found at the bottom of the dashboard. More prominently featured, are links to daily bible verses as well as faith videos. Every member must agree to act honestly and genuinely to be allowed to use the website.
The sign up process is step by step, taking you through a few basic questions about yourself, your background, your interests in the church and some site admin like choosing a username and password and signing up with an email address. The whole process takes only minutes, and allows you full access to the website and everything it offers. There is one exception, this is communication tools. To access these, simply sign up to one of the monthly subscription packages.
Once you’re signed up, make sure to fill out your profile properly and in full. This is the best way of making sure other users see you at your best, and you find a real match.
As well as the Christian Mingle pledge, and the helpful block list which keeps away malicious intent, the website has published a helpful and easy to read safety tips page. Here there is advice on keeping yourself protected online from identity thieves and time wasters, and equally important advice on making smart decisions when moving from online to offline too. You can find this document at the bottom of any page of the site, and we recommend you read it thoroughly if you are new to online dating.
The cost of using the website depends on how long you are signing up for. The most expensive option is a 1 month subscription, which costs £18.99. 3 months drops to £8.24 per month, and 6 months is by far the best deal at a monthly cost of £4.49. That means the full six months is only £26.91, hardly more than paying for one month of functionality!
If there was one complaint about the old Christian Mingle site, it was that it could be called cluttered. The new design is completely stripped back and yet simultaneously really powerful. You can find everything you need from the home page, including matches, search, communication and community extras. We love that you can also browse singles directly from the home page. Your account settings are in the top right corner, and you can get in touch directly with the website by contact us form if the extensive FAQ don’t answer your questions.
The search feature has also been streamlined, leaving an easy array of options to help you find your religious match. All your profile options can be used to search, as well as a more basic location and age tool if you’d rather let your matchmaking preferences do the hard work for you. You can also search by who is currently online, who has photos and who is close by you, as well as new members, and your match %. The best part is, as all members on the site are Christian singles, it doesn’t really matter how you search!
There is no better choice for religious Christian singles in the UK to find their soul mate online. Christian tools like faith videos and daily bible verses meet new and exciting dating tools like Question of the Week and Secret Admirer for a truly well rounded dating experience.
