Want to read an actual Christian Mingle review from someone that has actually used the site?
Yea, me too.
When I started working on this article researching information, I was more than a bit surprised to find most of the ChristianMingle reviews that I came across, obviously were written by someone who has never used the site.
I’ve had a membership, it seems, for well over five years (more on this shortly) – so let’s get right into the ins and outs of using the site and how to get the most of it.

Not as quick to sign up as most dating sites, but the questions that Christian Mingle asks fit the company.
While a bit repetitive (the first questions on the main page replicate the next questions on the next three pages), it only took me about four minutes to go through them all.
My favorite? The answer, “I’m open to all possibilities” on the “do you have children/want children” question.
Interestingly, by the time I got through the questions and was asked for my user name, I discovered I’d already signed up for the site while writing a previous Christian Mingle review while I was still the Dating Expert over at About.com.
Note: My profile showed I hadn’t logged in “for over 5 years” – a lovely, honest addition. Most of the popular dating sites don’t allow you to see this information, or search for it.
Christian Mingle is clean, fresh, and easy-to-use. There’s a crispness about the site, and it’s obviously made from scratch (as opposed to many of the sites that all look the same or run off the same servers). A lot of questions revolve around Christianity and how it applies to your life, and the whole site focuses well on the religious side of dating and mating.
The search options at Christian Mingle aren’t anything to write home about, but they work. Search by appearance, background and values, interests and lifestyle.
Oddly, my “Matches” – the first thing I went to go check after the five year absence – had nothing. I was told to return the next day for a fresh new set. Now, when I’d set up the account prior, I was in a small town, so perhaps it takes a day to repopulate the information.
Another bonus? Your default search options are whatever you put into your main profile page – not something the site pre-defines for you (a common frustration). As well, you’ll get folks that have logged in within the last month, and, with profile photos. Yes! Perfect.
According to FindTheData, Christian Mingle has significantly more female members than males (62% vs 38%). The site gets, on average, 2.2 million visits a month (five times more than the average dating site), which puts it at #20 on the top online dating websites list.
One month of Christian Mingle costs $29.99, three months costs $18.99 a month (billed at once for $56.97), and six months costs $13.99 a month (billed at once, costing $83.94).
If a dating site makes it to the news, it’s rarely a good thing (sadly). Christian Mingle has had its share of media wins and losses – here are a few.
Like eHarmony, Christian Mingle was sued in 2003 for not allowing gays, lesbians and other folks along the LGBQT+ spectrum access to their website, and like eHarmony, they also lost the lawsuit.
A convicted rapist that used both Match.com and Christian Mingle to find their victims issued statements after conviction and sentencing.
For the most part, the “big” dating sites aren’t a match for Christian Mingle’s demographic, other than perhaps eHarmony and Match.com. (There’s a reason why both companies were sued for not allowing LGBTQ+ folks on their sites, both religious).

Christian Mingle is a beautiful site, with excellent features, and a decent price point; FindTheData says it’s three month memberships are 8.1% higher than most dating sites.
Nutshell? If you fit the demographic and want a higher-quality pool to search from, I can only recommend Christian Mingle.
