Christianmingle as a company is pretty honest; But
June 20, 2022

Christianmingle as a company is pretty honest. They promptly refunded my account when I changed from 3-months to one month.

On the negative sided:

*I was contacted by many scammers from day one.

*Navigating the Website is Painfully Slow.

*Often some tabs (like 'who Liked me') Do Not Work.

*Pool of eligible quality singles is so small; no matter how much you expand the radius.

*It's over priced.

Don't use ChristianMingle
March 18, 2021

I used ChristianMingle during two periods, for about a month in late 2020 and in March 2021. During the two times I used the site actively, Christian Mingle had 10 times (literally, I counted them) more scam attempts and fake profiles than Zoosk or OurTime.

On March 17, 2021 I received 21 messages that had all the warning signs the sites give to identify a scam.

In every situation during the two times I was active on Christian Mingle when I responded to a message, it quickly became clear the people were seeking to scam me.

ChristainMingle's marketing is excellent, its product is not.

Christian Mingle is a scam
April 2, 2019
This website is a great example of why the average person who goes through this website, (if they are actually real), and are looking to find a Christian partner, as I was very disappointed with the women who were actually on the site claiming to be Christian. They were only looking for a sex partner, in both of the cases where I answered their message. The problem I have with most Christians who are on sites like this today, it has become in style to claim to be Christian to be accepted as a decent person, even if you don't live a decent lifestyle. Because of this, I refer to myself as a Child of God now. This website has no way to keep scam artists off it and all the profiles who contacted me other than these two were fake, once I did upgrade. Once the company had my money it never gave me another contact that was real other than these two.

Am I the only one who thus happened to, but before I joined I was getting lots of smiles and messages which I couldn't read. And so I said to myself, I'm gonna join. Lo and behold when I joined and paid there were no messages and no smiles. Also, not many now as it is. I have received a couple guys messaging me and one smile. All from way far away.I have seen a couple profiles of same people, but they could be like me, just tried a couple different sites. I had high hopes, my sister found her bf on here and is very happy. A good Christian couple. Also, I keep getting people viewing me from other parts of the country. Very disappointed. If anyone else noticed not receiving messages or smiles, not even showing up from the ones they said you had, please let me know.

It deserves a zero. Locked out of my account as someone supposedly changed my email. Call the phone and get a recording. Respond to the email and they send a second one demanding specific information to ensure I am the true account holder. Once I send the info, I call the bank to suspend the card. Suddenly, the second email disappears.....the one talking about suspicious activity and needing verifcation....yeah that one. I do get another email stating my account has been reviewed and "credit card" does not match my method of payment, to please verify. Really, who said "credit card"? And yes, they put it in quotations. Waiting to hear from a real person as I also filled out the contact form. Reporting them to the BBB. SCAM AND FRAUD!!!!!!

Christianmingle as a company seems to be honest (this is my experience with them).

However, there are many fake profiles and the website is painfully Slow.

This is THE worst dating site I have ever joined. It has NOTHING to with Christianity and may have well be called "The Devil Takes Over..Mingle" Tech support is non existent, members only get a certain "ration" of emails per day. Oh, but "smiles" are free, but those are used by non paying members to lure them into joining when they get a response and find out that CANT respond unless they pay. I made the mistake of paying and i regret it. Nobody can communicate with rationed emails and smiles from people that don't pay. I normally would get at least 20 responses per day, but on this BS site I maybe get one per day,. Oh but tons of smiles from members I can't even talk to because of the "join for free" lure. They need to say "join for free and then be able to do absolutely NOTHING until you pay for our BS awful site.

CM is a FRAUD! Please beware!
November 10, 2016
This site is plagued with fraud!! You may as well go on a site that is free such as POF. I have tried to contact them by phone and no one from CS has responded. The site is down and I tried sending them email and it wont send the email. I called their number 310-893-0550 and 866-660-7924 on 11/10/2016 and their voice recording says in honor of election day they have taken the day off!! This is 2 days after election I would give them a ZERO rating if they had one!!

Horrible Website Change since December 2015
August 10, 2016

The quality of the website has gone down drastically that if I had to subscribe even for a discount, I would not! The layout is very poor and not easily understood to what the numbers beside the topic means that it is very stupid to why they would downgrade and from the exceptional detail service the website offered before.

The pictures that are OWNED by YOU and of YOU are no longer able to be downloaded and Sparks now claims to own the pictures and there is no way of putting them on your desktop! It is HORRIBLE and on the old website I was able to download the pictures! There is so many issues, I can't even name them all!

Don't waste your money, find a way to meet people through a different service

Calm, Rational, and Unbiased
June 23, 2016

Whenever a business decides to put itself before its customers, I feel an urge to share my story with others (in a hopefully calm, rational, and unbiased way). ChristianMingle recently gave me this urge. I actively used ChristianMingle from May 2015 to March 2016, which is when I met my current girlfriend (I met her on another website, not ChristianMingle). I had a good experience using it, but then I was charged for an auto-renewal of $113.94 in May 2016. I emailed them telling them my situation and that I had forgotten that I would be charged for an auto-renewal for an additional 6 months when my time was up. I have a lot of memberships - some auto-renew and some don't, so it's tough to keep track of. The overwhelming majority of businesses understand this and are understanding when I ask if I can get a refund from an auto-renew (I've probably had this happen about 5 other times - all the businesses were totally cool giving me a refund).

I emailed them asking if I could get a refund since I hadn't used their website since March (when I entered my current relationship) and had no intention of using it for the time being. I thought this was a reasonable request, but they didn't think so. They told me several times that it's in their "Terms" that I accepted and I should've been more on top of it and canceled my service before the auto-renewal hit. I told them that's fine, but I promised I would never use their service again if they wouldn't make this exception. They told me to call them so they could assist me with my recent charge.

After 4 call attempts on 3 different days (they closed over 2 hours early one day, closed for lunch another, long hold time), they finally pick up. They look into my situation and tell me that they aren't going to give me a refund, because I basically should've known better and should've canceled my subscription before the auto-renew charge occurred (thank you for making me feel like a 14-year old getting a lecture from an adult again). Essentially it was all my fault. I find it funny that they told me to call them so they could "assist me with my recent charge" by telling me exactly what they told me over email. I told them I would never use their service again if this was the stance they were going to take and they seemed fine with it (they must have all the money and business they could possibly want).

Like I said earlier, this is one of those rare occasions where the business puts itself before its customers and I thought I should share my story so others don't need to experience the same thing. They knew my situation, they knew I hadn't used their service since March, and still decided to charge me thru November while giving me a lecture about how I'm not a responsible person, because it was in their "Terms" agreement.

Major Scam - Save your money
May 13, 2016
I received emails from con artist preying on Christian People. I tried to cancel for my own safety and they renewed me anyway. I tried to dispute it with my credit card company and was still not able to get my $59.97 charge credited back. I had to pay for a subscription that ended, no service nor access to the site. They are the true con artists. This is a get rich marketing scheme not a real dating site. Buyers beware and save your money for something more legit.

Horrible site-do not use it-beware!!!
May 4, 2016
If I could give a 0 I would, but no option. I am a widow and was on the site (must pay if you want to respond to any message) as a paying member for 5 days and had 3 members contact my profile-I responded to one. Two of these same members were removed for violation from the site including the one I had responded. Remember this is only 5 days. I removed my profile and then was unable to cancel my membership because I could not get back into the site, So I notified Christian Mingle to cancel my membership being I could not anymore, but they refused saying I had used the site and encouraged me to use it again. I am continuing the battle to cancel the membership. Of course, they emphasized I could not get a refund due to their policy. I have no comparison to other sites being this is the only one I have tried, but BEWARE-totally frightening site when I read other reviews that profiles left after removal were being used by other people and also email addresses were gotten by other members. My advice-DON"T USE THIS SITE-BEWARE.

Susie May 13, 2016

I agree 100%. I was on the site for 90 days and tried to cancel as well. They automatically renew you even if you remove your profile which is what I did due to suspicious activity from predators. Even though my subscription ended, they still renewed and my credit card company was unable to settle this dispute. Now I am stuck paying $59.97 charge, no access to the site or service. They are a money making scam. Buyers beware and do not allow them to put you on an auto renew. You will never be able to stop the service. I am getting a new credit card to avoid further billings from them.

My experience was good!
August 10, 2015

I don't know what Christian Mingle can do to keep non-Christian men or men with unchristian behavior from joining. I'm sure there are scammers, fakes, and men only after sex there. It's not like they can do a background check on everybody who joins. What is Christian Mingle supposed to do?

As with ANY dating website, as with much of life itself, it's BUYER BEWARE. Don't send anybody any money under any circumstances. Period.

Yes, Christian Mingle does auto-renewal, but then so do most dating websites. It's industry practice.

My experience? I met my wife in Christian Mingle. We got married in May of 2014!

ChristyD November 19, 2016

oh really? so you write a review years later..BS!.. This is a plant and fake by Christian Mingle. Based on the LAME pic we ALL have to see after logging out of this stupid site. OOOOOOH floating away with baloons..while dumb girl is hanging on. Yes please float away and take this STUPID site with you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do NOT do it!!
February 23, 2015
I only give this site a 1 star because 0 isn't an option! I am a widowed christian woman. I had decided that I could handle dating again and decided Christian Mingle would be an appropriate site. did I say I was gullible? Anyway within 4 weeks I had run into 4 scammers! I had decided that now I was more knowledgeable and knew to 4451013945548245 my red flags, so I decided to sign up for 1 more month. Well within a few days I received a notice that my email had been compromised and I needed to change my email and wait 24 hours then I could relativity my account. I did so then decided I could not trust anyone so I cancelled. I. Waited a few days and decided to check back into see if I could get into my account. Sure enough I was able to deactivate my account. I checked it out and decided for some reason to read my profile. To my borrow my picture was there but the profile was completely changed and it stated that I was looking for a lesbian relationship! I was horrified! I immediatelyI called Christian Mingle and their 1-866 # recording advised me to call back in 1 hour. I left an urgent message for someone to call me immediately. I. Haven't heard back from them, but I will call every 10 minutes and leave this message on as many sites as I can find. Please do yourself a favor and don't join this site!

Brenda May 01, 2017

Many scammers on this site. I was very disappointed with my experience. Don't wast your money.

Too many lurkers
January 15, 2015
There are men on this site that have multiple profiles in the zipcode 36830. I know that for a fact. I honestly think all the profiles without a pic are totally fake, men just lurking around. seeing what they can sleezebag over.

Should Be Called ""
December 28, 2014

The vast majority of the people on this site are evangelicals, with a few charismatics and fundamentalists thrown in.

That's fine if you're an evangelical, but if you are a mainline protestant like me, or perhaps a Catholic, there isn't much here.

TexansFan January 06, 2015

Having been on this site for another week, it's also clear that, at least in my neck of the woods , the single women on this site are significantly less well educated than those I see in my daily life ( the average on "Evangelical Mingle" seems to be "some college").

Not Christian at all
November 18, 2014
God perfect match? Really? Is that the case everything will be perfect. The owners of Christian Mingle are Sparks Network and they not Christians at all. All they care is about money and take advantage of people loneliness. The website is full of scammers and fakes profile created by them. Commercials are pure industrial psychology. A lot of sex predators because they don't make a background check. Chat rooms are full of people complaining about they can't find a date because just like any other websites men are there just for sex. Is more like a popularity competition in the 40's chat room and this specific common denominator person name Jesuschick167 controlling the chat room and team up with others people to kick people out of Christian Mingle. The worst part is that Christian Mingle don't check to see if the allegations are true because they don't monitor the chat rooms at all. People copy stuff and when they paste it they change it into their own convenience and that's defamation. You have to be afraid of writing something and the minions changing things. Lot of people with mental issues.

They Have Many Fake Profiles/Scams
July 21, 2014

I have been a member for some time, although sometimes being away for weeks.

What I have noticed is that they have too many fake profiles. I cannot understand why Christian Mingle does not do a better job. After all this year they had a member taken for $300,000 from a scam.

It is easy for them to catch many of the scam fake profiles. For example, if the person is using an IP address from Nigeria or other countries where the scam artists tend to congregate, they should do more research before posting their profile.

They do not do any IP research before posting.

As for me I have been contacted by countless scam artists on this website. I think they target people with more education as I have a Ph.D. level education. Of course most of them are widowers, with flowery language, etc.

I have turned in countless profiles as possible fakes. When I call in to report them, customer agent confirms that the profile I question sounds like a scam. (I won't publish a list of things that are red flags as I will not help the fraudsters avoid detection.)

Why do they only seem to do their investigations when a customer flags a fake? This is how their customers get robbed not just of their monies, but their time and for some, their heart.

I have gone to another website, There you can contact people for free and they don't seem to have the level of fraudsters that Christian Mingle has. I have already met two legitimate people from there.

I think that anyone that uses this website that markets itself to Christians (or any website with Christian focused marketing) that these sites, from the onset, are more vulnerable because Christians are generally trusting (maybe too trusting).

So don't waste your money on You can use secular websites ( or and just indicate that you are looking for a Christian.

In writing this, for the record I have not lost money to the scammers. Instead of I have been "defrauded" of too much time weeding through the fakes.

Also you might want to put in your profile you never loan money to anyone.. If a male has to borrow money from you, then they are not dating or marriage material.

Hope this helps someone.

Trudy Fernandez September 07, 2014

I agree with you as I have also met someone who I found was full of red flags. The initial letters he sent to my personal email were written with much intelligence. These wee long, loving, romantic letters which I responded to in a similar way. In one of my long letters, I mentioned that I was not ready to retire and am not financially stable to do so, when voila, his response was written later and was much shorter and not as intelligible as the former once.

We got to chat, and to talk on the phone. His voice was so muffled, I could not discern a word he says. And it sounded like a whole different person from my first initial love letters.

All the red flags prompted me to chech out "dating scams" and behold, those long letters he wrote were verbatim from a scam source.

Further research prompted me to report the matter to IC3, and had to report it to CM.

I did not lose money, but my emotion was tagged in so many different ways. I thought I met my ideal man. If there is anything I learned from this experience that I'd like to share is this: always trust your instincts. If it feels too good to be true, then let your mind analyze the details. Conflict within is a good indication that something is not right.

May 31, 2014
Christian Mingle is just as good as any of the other sites out there. They cannot help the fact that half the people on the site are just looking for no strings sex, scammers or cons. So are half the people on any other site. The ultimate responsibility is on the PERSON THAT SIGNS UP!! Glean through the idiots to find the one solid gold person you can date. You're going to find the idiots on ANY SITE. At least Christian Mingle attempts to keep it clean and above board.

Emmanuel Muzeek January 30, 2015

Bull It's only a good site in name must work for site!!!!!!!!

Karen Lienhop Patterson January 31, 2015

No. I don't. I'm a nurse and live in MO. With any have to do your homework. Nothing wrong with the site. You have to use them all wisely.m

Don't waste your time or your money
October 30, 2013

Most of the emails you'll get won't be from people in your local area; they'll be from people hundreds and thousands of miles away from you, many asking you in their first email to you to contact them at their own personal email address on yahoo, hotmail or gmail.

Secondly, many people locally are either still married, are looking for no strings attached sex. You'd think that you'd find higher quality people on Christian Mingle, and many genuine Christians on Christian Mingle, as it's a Christian dating website, but that's not the case.

And, when you do contact Christian Mingle to tell them about scam artists on their website, and express your desire to discontinue your membership with them, they tell you that they're not responsible, and suggest to you that you need to do your own background searches on every person you meet online to keep yourself safe. Then they tell you to go read their success story pages.

Don't let the "Christian" part of Christian Mingle fool you. It's no different than Plenty of Fish. The only reason Christians are signing up on Christian Mingle is because of their PR. They put a ton of ads on TV and place them in several Christian publications to persuade you to sign up. Don't fall for it. Save your money.

When God wants you to meet someone at the right time, it'll happen. Offline. God is bigger than any dating website!

[email protected] November 04, 2013

when I used Christian Mingle, I had already tried, and EHarmony. and low and behold, every time that had a "match" for me, it was someone I had already been "matched" with from another on-line dating site, same picture, same profile and it even said which site they were actually from. this led me to believe that: 1) Christian Mingle had no DATA BASE of their own; and 2) as such, they were actually the worst scammers of the bunch!! OF COURSE- all of them try desperately to cheat you out of your money by refusing to let you cancel your accounts, and the only way I was able to do so was by disputing the charges with my credit card company. unfortunately, most people do not realize that this option even exists, so end up getting screwed royally by these frauds, and cheats. of course, once the credit card company tells them that there will be no payments, and they will not make any of the prior payments either, how quickly the companies stop providing their "services" and stop even trying to bill you! this is but one of the many benefits that credit cards offer you that cash, nor paypal can touch.

Gods M November 29, 2013

Did you really think that this dating site was legit? Did you believe that the owners of the site really talk to god and he talks back to them? People are so gullible when it comes to god. What were you people thinkin' anyway?
