Features / Search

ChristianMingle.com is part of the Spark Networks, so many of the features are similar to Spark.com, while the membership base is very different. Your profile starts with an open-ended introduction and then some basic appearance and lifestyle questions. ChristianMingle.com does not indicate how many photos are allowed to post, but we recommend adding a few, as it will get your profile noticed more. You can import photos directly from your Facebook account. You can also indicate your Christian denomination, church you attend, and how often you attend. There are some essay questions you can answer to reveal more about your personality.

Just like Spark.com, ChristianMingle.com uses the Color Code Personality Test to help find matches that are compatible with you. We find this to be a very accurate personality test producing quality matches. ChristianMingle.com also has a unique "Readiness IQ" test, which you can take to see if you are ready to date and start a relationship. Your results are completely private and only used for your personal learning. We found this feature very helpful. ChristianMingle.com also uses the COMPASS matching test to find better matches for you based on your personality. The COMPASS test is a multiple choice test which reveals some deeper aspects of your personality.

The searching features are abundant at ChristianMingle.com. In addition to being given matches based on your Color Code and profile preferences, you have many ways to search for members. You can communicate with any member, although you do need a paid subscription to communicate. You can also search based on all different appearance and lifestyle aspects, as well as search who's online now and view ChristianMingle.com's photo gallery. ChristianMingle.com also has a secret admirer section like Spark.com, where you can simply indicate to a member that you are interested in them. You are shown photos of other members and you can choose "Yes", "No", or "Maybe" to indicate that you are their secret admirer. If you choose "Yes", then the member is notified that you are interested in them. If you choose "Maybe", then the member profile is saved for you to look at later. ChristianMingle.com has a community section where you can post messages and see what other members are up to. They also hold live in-person events each month giving you another opportunity to meet Christian singles. A unique feature to ChristianMingle.com is their Worship Center which takes you to www.believe.com and is a place where you can get spiritual guidance or read bible passages or post encouraging messages and prayers.

Communication

ChristianMingle.com has many ways for you to initiate contact and communicate with members. While you can see who's viewed your profile or sent you icebreakers for free, you can't email members unless you have a paid subscription. If you find a member you want to start communicating with, you can first send them a smile, an E-card, or a spark to show them you are interested. These are casual, flirty messages that you send to members. You can also indicate that you are a secret admirer of them to see if they are also interested in you. Then if you want to have some more intimate conversations over IM or email, you must pay for a subscription. Signup today and see how easy it is to flirt with your matches!

Privacy / Safety

If you are a little reluctant to put your personal information online and start searching, you don't have to worry with ChristianMingle.com. They put your privacy and safety first and foremost. At ChristianMingle.com, they give you safety tips and warning signs to look out for when you interact with other members on their site. They also give you tips on how to act and what to be aware of on a first date in person, such as being wary of any person that asks you to give out financial information.

You have the ability at ChristianMingle.com to hide any member from your searches or block any member from communicating with you. You can also change your IM status to "offline" if you don't want any members sending you an IM. ChristianMingle.com also allows you to report any concern with a member to their support staff. ChristianMingle.com goes to extra lengths to keep their site safe and want you to have a worry free online dating experience.

Customer Support

You can contact the ChristianMingle.com customer support staff by email or phone, which is nice because some online dating sites only offer email support. Their staff is courteous, discrete, and very helpful. They also have an extensive FAQ section on their website and a search tool which should help you find answers to most of your questions. If you can't find an answer, their support staff is ready to assist you. We received a response from their email support within 24 hours, which is an acceptable turn around time.

I found my amazing husband through Christian Minlge, I was skeptical about online dating but I tried! My hubby is just like what I have prayed! God answered me! Although the price was a bit expensive for me who was a student, I liked that Christian Mingle investigated seriously about uploading profiles!
