Dating Tips

Written by AdminJune 5 ,2016402 Views Free Dating

The rise of online dating has made it easier for people from all over the country to meet and connect. Within the Christian community online dating has been, I don’t want to say a godsend, but definitely something that was sorely needed for the devout who were finding it hard to meet locals with the same values and outlook on life.

The pros of online dating are obvious – it allows users to get to know a person gradually, and in-depth profiles give users the opportunity to really express what they want in a relationship.

So to help you out, I’ve put the two top Christian dating sites head to head on 6 different comparison features. Find out which is worth your time and which will provide you with the best opportunity to meet someone with whom you can share an authentic, fulfilling and wholesome relationship.

Userbase

Both sites start off strong here with a niche Christian platform which attracts nearly completely religious singles looking for a Christian match. Both Christian Matchmaker and Christian Cafe attract various denominations, from Anglican, LDS, Catholic, Jehovah’s Witness, Lutheran and more, and let you sign up and search by whichever Church you choose.  Christian Cafe is slightly more serious, and might not suit singles looking for a purely cultural match.

Winner: Christian Matchmaker

Sign up and Profile

Both sites have a simple sign up which takes minutes, and don’t include email verifications. While Christian Matchmaker has a few questions to answer on your profile to help singles get to know you better, Christian Cafe includes a wide variety of open ended profile boxes, with Christian focused questions such as your favourite scriptural verse, as well as broader topics like your life goals and what you’re looking for in a match.

Winner: Christian Cafe

Features

Christian Cafe has a basic search tool for age and location, as well as letting you search for your own matches in seven great ways, including fun extras such as username search and search by birthday! However, for those singles looking for something specific from their religious match, Christian Matchmaker offers a powerful Keyword search, and also delivers daily matches to your dashboard based on your own preferences.

Mobile

Christian Matchmaker has a responsive mobile site, so you can access your messages and interactions from any handheld device. It’s a little difficult to use, but does mean that you’re never away from your dating tools if you’re excited about being in touch with a match made in heaven. If you’re on iOS or Android however, you’ll love the beautifully designed mobile apps from Christian Cafe, which give you real-time notifications as well as a ton of great options for dating on the move.

Winner: Christian Cafe

Pricing

Christian Matchmaker starts at $9.99 per month if you’re willing to sign up for a year, and the most expensive option is a month’s trial for $29.95. Without a subscription there is no communication, and there are no free trials available. Christian Cafe has an industry leading 10 day free trial which can be extended by 5 days for each friend you refer. Once you’re confident it’s the right choice, a year’s subscription is even cheaper at $9.16 per month.

Winner: Christian Cafe

Chat

It’s a knockout for this round, with Christian Cafe offering more bells and whistles than a marching band. There is inbox chat, instant messenger, and forums categorized by topic, as well as Christian discussion and chat features like the Prayers section. Christian Matchmaker can’t compete with simple inbox messaging.

Winner: Christian Cafe

Bottom Line

There’s no doubt you’ll get a wider range of religious seriousness on Christian Matchmaker, as well as powerful and intuitive search and matchmaking tools. But their competition has two mobile apps, awesome chat options and a risk-free 10 day free trial. The results are in! It’s easy to give the Christian dating Crown to Christian Cafe for singles who want to give God a helping hand in guiding them to their perfect match.
