Do you believe that an online dating site could produce a match made in heaven? As a Christian wouldn't you love to be matched with someone who has the same religious beliefs as you. ChristianMingle.com is one of those online dating sites for Christian singles looking for Christian partners, a soul mate, or friends. Here is a review.
This online dating site has been steadily growing in size since 1996, the year of its inception. To date, it has tens of thousands Christian heterosexual members.
The site has a simple but attractive home page updated recently. Anyone accessing it would have a brief and concise summary of what this online Christian dating site can provide. Below the home page are the other features of the site. A big button entices viewers to join now and once you enter the site you are asked your gender and whom you are interested in. Then specific questions are asked about your physical descriptions, character and personality.
A photo gallery, event center, real time communication with whoever is online, message boards, a special two-way matchmaking feature, chat rooms, instant messaging and “Send a smile” feature are some fun and special features of ChristianMingle.com. The chat rooms and instant messaging mean that once you have a match there is really no need to communicate using guided communication. Matched persons can communicate easily and freely with his or her matches.
The “Send a smile” feature is fun to use. If you send one to a match and that person reciprocated, you are somewhat sure that there is interest there. Another fun feature is sending an e-card, if one prefers a conventional way of making contact. Simply attach your personal message.
There are no advertising when using the site which is great to keep you focusing on what you’re after... a Christian date!
You’ll be assured to be sent mails, notification and announcements. It seems it would be easier to connect.
Profiles are created using a personality test that utilizes Dr. Taylor Hartman’s personality profile which, interestingly, is color coded. If a person has been assigned a certain color it would be easy to search for matches with the same color, which would mean a compatible match.
Matching and Searching
A personality test is given free and personalities are categorized by color. Searching is quick and online subscribers can be contacted easily. Since there are a lot of subscribers and the site is international in orientation, it is easy to search for compatible matches using the color coded personality assigned to each subscriber.
Ease of Use
Unlike other online dating sites, this site is very easy and relatively fast to use. After you have typed in what you are searching for i.e. a man or a woman, continuing further, the usual information asked is your name, location, and birthday; and your physical characteristics such as color of eyes, hair, skin, race, and height. Then the username you would like to use and your password. You’re given a chance to describe yourself, your personality, and what you are looking for in a person. A short essay then is asked on how you would describe yourself.
The personality questions are asked to determine what personality color you are, as described earlier. These detailed personality questions that are asked are your favorite movies, activities, music, indoor games you prefer, and getaways of your choice. You’re asked to describe your ideal match as to age, location, body types and others. What would you like to do on a first date? What have your past relationships taught you? What does being a Christian mean to you?
Customer Service and Cost
Customer service works fast and delivers an answer within minutes. Unlike other online dating sites, it has a toll free customer care number that works 24 hours and is easy to connect to.
The average cost for a month is usually $13.33. Their ad says it is free to browse, but there is no free trial membership where you can access all their features.
One setback of ChristianMingle.com is that not all users are granted a free trial. Also, some subscribers do not have any photos posted at all which, even if their profiles were written quite nicely, some potential matches could lose interest.
From a score of one to five with one as the worst and five as the best, the rating for ChristianMingle.com would be an average of 3.25. For Features= 3; Ease of use=4.5; Popularity=3; Profile quality=3; Customer service=3.5; Cost=3; Searching=3 and Matching system=3.
