Here’s how to find your soulmate
Dating as a person of faith isn’t easy; it can be hard to find someone who matches your core values and understands your motives.
Especially when it comes to Christian dating online, finding someone who you instantly click with can be a little tricky.
Using a dating app or site to meet a fellow Christian who is serious about their faith takes effort and trust.
Christian dating is different from dating presents a unique challenge. You want someone that you can pray with and to learn what it’s like to grow closer to God while also becoming more involved with one another.
When two people of faith meet, the complications can involve which church to attend as a new couple vs one person who doesn’t attend services at all trying to be convinced by another who does that it’s something to do.
Evangelical dating isn’t fun, and so it’s just easier to meet someone that you already know is on the same spiritual journey that you are on. Hence, using a Christian dating app when you can’t meet someone at church when you’re single and looking for love.
There’s really nothing wrong with using a Christian dating site or app. But, finding trustworthy and reputable dating sites is a must when it comes to finding your future bf online within the Christian community.
You want to fall in love and create a deep, meaningful connection with someone who rises above the negativity in this world.
While apps like Tinder and websites like Match.com may have potential, they don’t cater to the Christian community and strive to make it a focal point in the world of online dating.
Having a site or app that is perfectly curated to help you find matches within your community is important.
Here are some of the best apps and dating websites for all the Christian ladies and gents out there.
Don’t count yourself out, because there are plenty of Christian fish in the sea. You just have to find the right place to cast your love line.
Let’s start with some apps because let’s be honest, we are almost always on our phones.
If you aren’t ready to completely dive into the “Christian only” dating realm, Zoosk is a great place to start. While the app doesn’t focus on Christian singles specifically, it has over 300,000 users who identify as Christians looking for another Christian.
The app lets you add in a range of Christianity, from the more strict to laid-back attitude. Wherever you fall on the religious scale, you are bound to find someone who matches your beliefs.
If you are a Christian but might want to also match with other religions, (maybe test the waters) Zoosk is a good stepping stone. When it comes to true love, there are no restrictions on this app.
2. CrossPaths Christian Dating
Not a well-known name, but a must-have app when it comes to the Christian dating world. The app lets you identify your faith spectrum and answer questions about your religion, in order to find the best matches possible.
The app follows the same format as Tinder, (swipe right or left and if both swipe right, it’s a match) but is only suitable for those of the Christian faith. This app lets you connect with fellow Christians within your area and chat for free.
CrossPath also allows you to plan dates right on the app and reminds you of local events nearby that may be of your interest. Do I sense a first date coming up soon?
3. Christian Mingle: Local Dating
Christian Mingle is well-known for its dating website and presence online. However, the website is now available through their mobile app. If you are looking for a God-centered relationship, Christian Mingle is the app for you.
Christian Mingle has been matching singles for over 15 years now, so they kind of know the rule of thumb when it comes to finding you your perfect match. You can even send the Christian cutie that caught your eye a smiley face … how adorable is that?
Just be aware that some features are only accessible with a paid subscription. If you think this app will give you success, then start your free trial. If not, there are plenty of free apps on the market.
4. CMatch: Christian Dating and Mingle
This app requires a membership, which start at $6.49/month. Even though this app has a monthly fee, they do offer some pretty unique features that the other apps do not. CMatch allows you to upload pictures and even a link to your church.
This way, those interested in you can get a glimpse of the community you surround yourself in and the church you attend. Overall, the app is similar to the others mentioned, but it does include special touches that may enhance your dating experience.
Now, onto some dating websites for the more “old-fashioned” Christians out there.
EHarmony is a website that isn’t just for Christians, but does a great job matching singles based on their religion. It is not your traditional Christian dating site because it matches singles based on compatibility and curates a bunch of matches based around your faith.
To jump right into the website, go to eharmony.com/Christians in order to start your online dating profile immediately with a religious background.
The main features are free, but the website will eventually start charging you monthly for being a member of their site. The company does guarantee that if you aren’t satisfied after three months, they will refund you the money.
6. Christian Cupid
Not the most popular, but for sure worth a try when it comes to finding love in the Christian community. With the first three months free of charge, you can browse through photos of Christians in your area and start messaging them right away.
What’s cool about this website is that they also mention it being a tool for those looking for Christian friends – no romance, just someone who can attend Sunday service with you or maybe grab a cup of coffee. So, even if you don’t find your one true love, you might just make a best friend.
7. Christian Connection
Winner of the UK Dating Award for Dater’s Favorite Site 2015-2017, this website believes that it all just starts with having a little faith. The website posts free, local events on their meetup board for those looking to get out and meet someone face to face.
Christian Connection even uses cute ice breakers to make it easier for you to catch the attention of a Christian you’re interested in. Pretty helpful, right?
