Christian Mingle is all about helping those with a love for God in Christ to find ‘the one’ for them, and there is a wide range of features to assist in making that a reality, from an instant messenger to message boards and chat rooms. With so many of those that are most serious about their faith also being older daters, you should have every opportunity to find a likeminded soul here. This isn’t just a generic dating site parading under a religious-themed banner – this is a site that takes very seriously its role in matching Christian love-seekers.
As soon as you log into your account, you’ll see all of the distinctive features that have made Christian Mingle such a destination for single, senior Christians. The site’s emphasis on faith is embedded even in the search functionality, which allows you to search by the church a member has been raised in. You’ll also notice a link to a Worship Center, complete with such options as a Prayer Wall, Testimonials, Searchable Bible, Bible Studies and Daily Bible Verse.
There are also many community features that allow you to get closer to other plus 40 Christian daters, such as a Question of the Week page, with answers from various members of the site, as well as a Secret Admirer page, which suggests profiles in which you can express an interest – or lack of interest. Opportunities to enhance your profile are also abundant, and include a Relationship Readiness IQ test, and even a Color Code Personality Test giving insight into how your personality affects your relationships.
Naturally, there’s also the option to edit your profile in a more straightforward fashion, including a series of Fun Facts like your favorite bands and musicians and your mentality and political views. It all helps you even more to attract the perfect person.
The site makes clear that it does not conduct background checks into its members, but the protracted signup process should help to weed out disreputable types. The site also publishes dating safety tips and gives you the option to report a profile if you see anything amiss.
There’s a free, multi-step process to signing up to Christian Mingle – starting by disclosing your gender and the gender that you are looking for. You’ll then be asked for your height, body type, eye color, hair color, ethnicity, education level, occupation, how often you smoke, how often you drink… you get the idea. This continues through various questions more directly related to your faith, including the denomination of the church that you now attend. It might seem a long-winded process, but it does help you to get the most out of your dating straight away.
Invest in Standard Membership to send and receive mail and connect with instant messaging, among other things. You can save big with a six month package, but remember that whichever one you go for, you’ll also need to pay a $3.99 processing fee if subscribing for the first time.
|OPTIONS||TOTAL COST||COST PER MONTH||SAVINGS|
|3-Month Membership||$56.97||$18.99||36.7% ($33)|
|6-Month Membership||$83.94||$13.99||53.4% ($96)|
A turquoise-colored menu bar at the top of the page gives you access to most of the functionality that you’ll ever need, including your Inbox, Matches, Search options, Profile, Community, the Worship Center and more. This all means that it shouldn’t take long for you to get used to the site, even if you’re one of those senior daters who normally find the whole online dating thing a bit bewildering and overwhelming. Click the Your Account link at the top of the page for instant access to various account settings, including a vast range of email preferences.
If you’re ready to get searching for fellow Christian singles, you’ve definitely got a lot of options with Christian Mingle. Click Who’s Online to see who’s using the site right now, or click the Quick Search option to keep things at their most basic – searching by age, gender and potentially, keywords.
