Our Christian Mingle Review

Christian Mingle is a faith-based dating site for Christian singles who are looking for serious, long-term fulfilling relationships. As a match-making website for people of Christian faith, Christian mingle has seen a lot of success the world over with more than 1 million members.

The website has also made it possible for gay Christian dating, giving even more people the chance to enjoy a God-centred relationship. The site is geared toward lasting relationships too, so the goal of a Christian marriage is always present.

If you are curious about what you can expect from one of the top Christian dating sites, read through our review to find out everything you need to know about their features, registration, user-friendliness, and more!

Our Summary

For Christians who are looking to reliably meet other Christian singles, Christian Mingle offers users an excellent platform to search and find others. Users will get access to a large community focused on faith-based dating, helping them to find their soulmate.

The site does have a few drawbacks, although they are relatively minor. The biggest issue with Christian Mingle is that there are not many features which stand out with the premium service, especially when compared to other dating sites.

However, this means that when you sign up for dating here, you will be getting a focused experience that encourages you to simply search for and meet new people interested in dating. This can be a positive if that is all you are interested in doing.  

Overall, we feel that Christians who are truly interested in dating other Christians will get a lot out of the site. Registering is free, and you can explore the site before you make your decision on whether to upgrade, so when not try it out?
