Best for serious Christian singles
It’s well worth signing up to Christian Café, as they offer an industry leading 10 days worth of free rein on the website before they ask you to sign up for a subscription package. The sign up is very simple, and involved you entering your email address and a username, and including your location and date of birth. There is no email verification needed, which speeds things up but may make some people nervous in terms of security.
The first part of your profile set up is simply drop down buttons where you can include your education and background, your physical appearance and lifestyle, what kind of relationship you are looking for and whether you have kids or want them in the future. These may seem invasive, but they will help you think about what you’re looking for and help others narrow down the search too. There is almost always an option which leaves the answer to the imagination, for example ‘That’s for God to decide’ or ‘Open to possibilities’. If you are legally married, Christian Café asks that you do not use the website.
It’s easy to put your Christian values at the forefront of your dating experience here. Include your denomination, your church attendance and involvement, and how important your religion is to you. This ends the mandatory part of your profile building, but you can choose to keep going to flesh out your profile a bit better. The more you say about yourself the more likely you are to attract attention, and it has been proven that profiles with more info and photos get loads more interest in the long run. So it’s worth you spending between ten minutes and a half hour filling in some of the optional questions. These are open ended and you can give as short an answer as you want to. They include things like what your ideal relationship would be, and how you feel about your occupation. You can include Christian responses such as your favorite scriptural verses, or stick to broader topics like your personal life goals.
