History

History

How long have you been in business?

ChristianMingle launched in 1998. Since that time, over 15 million members have registered, with more people signing on every day.

What is the story behind the new logo? Significance?

As a company, we’re excited to be moving in an innovative direction and felt the need to develop a logo that captures this fresh energy. The word “Christian” is the visual umbrella over what it really means to unite and “mingle”. The words are stacked as a pair, because in our community, pairs are formed in an ideal match. The proprietary font is contemporary and forward-thinking, aligning with today’s Christian while reflecting the innovative technology that fosters a successful online dating experience. The green font color symbolizes the rebirth and growth that revives hope in romance. In the Bible, gray, the second font color, refers to truth. ChristianMingle is centered on the ultimate faith-based truth.

After seeking theological counsel, we chose to use the lowercase letters “c” and “m” in this new design because they theologically represent a group of people rather than the singular person, Jesus Christ. As Christians, we are all together under one belief that serves to inspire us to live rewarding lives with fulfilling relationships.

What is the story behind the website redesign? Why the new look?

We redesigned ChristianMingle.com to reflect today’s single Christians who are looking at love and relationships in a new way. Your Christian faith is a strong foundation for the most meaningful relationships, but we also want you to have fun! Our new site has a brighter, more relaxed look and tone because your experience should be easy and enjoyable. Sure, love is the ultimate goal, but the process of meeting many like-minded people holds so much value. You might start a long-term relationship or a loyal friendship – all new connections hold great potential!

What makes ChristianMingle different from other dating sites?

The world is a big place. ChristianMingle helps make it smaller (in the name of love). As an online community for people of faith to meet, date and relate, ChristianMingle is focused on facilitating meaningful matches between single Christians who share the same values and beliefs. By doing so, we make online dating less overwhelming, helping narrow your specific dating pool to the best matches. Plus, ChristianMingle holds itself to the highest ethical standards with our world class, 7 days a week Customer Service team reviewing each profile and photo to ensure a safe and enjoyable dating experience for all our members.

Faith

Are you affiliated with a certain denomination or church?

Our aim is the serve the entire Christian community by helping connect people with shared beliefs and values. As such, we have not aligned with any one particular denomination or church. To help facilitate compatible matches, we encourage members to fill out their profiles thoroughly and communicate their religious preference.

Do you allow non-Christians to join?

We are a community built to serve the unique needs of the Christian community. As such, our aim is to provide a place for people to connect based on shared faith and values. Anyone can join. We encourage our members to provide an accurate picture of their commitment to the Christian faith in order to create compatible matches. We provide several key ways for our members to communicate their faith online. Once you connect, it’s important to take the time to learn more about your potential match offline and in person to truly confirm that he or she is right for you.

I want to introduce ChristianMingle to my church. Do you have any packages/plans for churches? Do you offer group discounts?

We do! We are a connection point for singles AND a ministry resource to help churches better serve and equip their singles for dating, relationships and marriage. We offer special service packages and discounts for large and small churches that in turn help to grow the Christian community as a whole. To learn more, visit our For Churches page or email us at churches@ChristianMingle.com.

Is your leadership team Christian? Who is your leadership team?

To best serve the Christian community, we lean heavily upon the insight and direction of key Christian leaders to honor and represent Biblical values in our messaging, content and site standards. As a publicly traded company that also owns and manages several dating sites, our staff represents multiple cultural and religious backgrounds. In that way, we are not exclusively Christian-owned. As a site built to uniquely serve the Christian community, we are strongly Christian led.

How do you transition from online to offline? How should I ask someone on a date?

A lot of people wonder when it’s appropriate to move from sending messages to the date. We recommend messaging your potential match something like, “I really enjoy our message back-and-forth. Should we meet for coffee next week? I’m free Monday or Wednesday, if either works for you.” If you get a positive response or a suggestion for a different day, then you know this person wants to meet. If the answer is simply “no” (or you don’t receive an answer), then it’s time to move on. Don’t take it personally. Not everyone is great at responding. Take your time getting to know someone through ChristianMingle messages and chat (IM), but don’t let your online exchanges stop you from moving forward. A simple date is best way to know if you truly have chemistry.

How does ChristianMingle find fake profiles? What do they do with them?

Our goal is to make every experience on ChristianMingle a positive one.

We have invested in numerous cutting-edge technologies that help us with this. Plus, our diligent Customer Service team personally reviews every profile. Just as important however, we encourage our members to let us know when they’ve come into contact with someone who seems disingenuous or unpleasant. If we do identify what appears to be a fake or fraudulent profile, we delete it immediately. Please contact our Customer Service team if you have any questions.

How should I respond if I am not interested in someone – without hurting someone’s feelings?

First off, we applaud your sensitivity in wanting to respond instead of ignoring someone’s interest. Simply reply with something along the lines of “Thank you for your interest, but unfortunately I don’t believe we’d be a match. I wish you the best of luck!” Don’t feel obligated to give a detailed or complicated explanation.
