Once you sign up there's no way out! They send you tons of unsolicited e-maila and bombard your box. You can't just click on "unsubscribe," you have to log in. But then you're forced to fill out a "fun facts" page or they won't let you get to the preferences section to change anything.
Forget trying to e-mail them, you have to join first. Matches are from distant countries. Gays are allowed to sign up, so there's NOTHING Christian about any of this. It's a Beverly Hills, CA money-making scam! I'm just glad I wasn't foolish enough to actually give them any financial information. Run away while you still can!!!
I have received 2 messages from women who sound great, they look beautiful, but right away ask for you personal email address to send more photos, the photos they send are very revealing, in lingerie etc..., the are not the real women, it is a scam, I dont know why, I just delete the message and photos when I get them, I think they prey on single, lonley men, try to get to know you then will probably want you to send them money, there spelling is ususally not correct, the photos are definitley too good to be true, just trying to suck you in and then get money out of you, I have reported them to Christian mingle, to remove them from the site.
I am so glad I'm not trying to find a match through CM, now, in 2013. I was on CM around 2003 when it was not nearly as corrupted as it is now. Even back then, i met so many guys that were not Christ-like in their behavior. Many were from foreign countries looking for a greencard or money. Several were preying on women for sexual encounters.
The good news: I met some dear friends (female) that I still chat with, PTL. Interestingly, of all of us that were "close", 6 of the women are now married, and 2 are not. Four of the 6 of us married ladies met our Hubbys on CM.
I feel like this.... God can use any means to answer your prayer for a spouse... even if it's "not now", or "not on CM", or "not ever". But He sometimes does use sights like CM to help you meet your match.
Here's the key.. you have got to keep in prayer. God can remove barriers, or set up situations like He did with me and my husband in 2004, when we met on Christian Mingle. It's crazy how we met (me on a subscription, him on a 7 day trial). We lived 4 states away, and neither of us planned to move. Well, there are those "barriers" I was talking about. Fall of 2004 we were married. CM didn't "match" us, or even suggest each other in an email. We were in the right place at the right time (the CM chat room), and God used it for us to meet. No, i don't believe we only have 1 soul mate out there. But other than a few things, my husband is the type of person I prayed for... a Man of God who knew the Bible, and lived it. Perfect person? no. But, neither am I !!!
I give CM 3 stars because it did provide the tool God used to get my Hubby and I together, but I I don't give it 5, because it wasn't them that was so great... it was God's answer to prayer of 2 Christians in their 30's looking for love. I feel like we found each other in spite of the land mines of CM.
You have to be a PAID subscriber to read any income messages. That's right. It's right there in their FAQ's, weakly stated, and they confirmed this when I asked about it directly. Think about it before you subscribe, think about what kind of a problem this could be if you send a message to someone who doesn't know about this. CM needs to fix this, but I doubt if they ever will.
This site is the worst site to find someone. A lot of the women all of a sudden are now Christians and act like the virgin Mary. CM keeps Ladies Pictures up for over a year because they don't have enough ladies in your area. I got mostly emails from 50 miles away. I call CM after 2 weeks and ask for my money back. They said they never refund money!
I went on Match.com and received 100's of interested ladies. A lot of Christian lady. That are great looking!

Greg, 3 months ago i signed up with CM and then was locked out permanently. Unfortunately your staff could not solve the problem and remains still open.
The compency level of Sparks reputation surprises me and is surely scarred by this prevailling issue. What must i do to get my email adresses removed from your system?
Let me know asap that at least you know how to resolve an insignificant matter like this without problems.
It seems to me that most people think a dating site is supposed to play match maker. You're not hiring a match maker. That costs a lot more money. Christian Mingle, and I would imagine most dating sites, offer members the opportunity to MINGLE with other like-minded singles. Expect to do a lot of the leg work yourself.
I've been on the site for about a year. I've met about 10 men in that time. None of them I would consider all-star material, granted, and I haven't found a relationship yet, but I don't fault the site. I certainly think calling it a "scam" is completely unfounded and unwarranted. For it to be a scam they'd have to like keep withholding information and features, like searches and the ability to connect through email, after charging your card. A scam to me would be a site that keeps asking for more money to do basic features. That certainly isn't the case. Once they have your money, you have free reign to search, advance search, browse, chat and contact to members.
I've never tried any other site, so I can't really compare it to other sites as far as the value, but I find it to be reasonably priced and Ive never had an issue with it in any way. Take it for what it is... I don't pay any attention to the matches they send me. Totally ignore every single one of them. I take action. I search men between the ages I want, the height I want, the location I want, the ethnicity I want...and I send those men messages or smiles. I've had great success.
