1. Work On Your Profile
You only get one shot to make a first impression, but the great thing about online dating is that you get to control what that first impression looks like. So don’t waste the opportunity to perfect your profile as much as possible!
Those wanting to meet someone on Christian Mingle are in luck: our profile settings make it easy to showcase your personality. The layout gives you room for your photos, space to describe yourself in detail and a spot where you can include a quote that’s meaningful to you. For the best results, fill out as much information as possible and include recent photos. When describing yourself, avoid clichés and be honest. And if you’re really trying to attract attention, consider taking advantage of our add-on Highlighted Profile and Member Spotlight features.
2. Narrow Down Your Search
Christian Mingle is a bustling Christian dating site, so scarcity of options isn’t an issue for most members. In fact, many new users are overwhelmed by the many potential matches they suddenly have when they first sign up. Fortunately, for those wanting to meet someone on Christian Mingle, out site also has plenty of tools that make it possible to narrow down the selection to the people who might really be a great match for you, including:
- Matches: Based on the Match Preferences you set, Christian Mingle will send you a list of members that are best suited to your interests and values.

3. Make Your First Message Count
