3. No sexually suggestive photos (including men without shirts)
4. No altered photos

If ChristianMingle doesn’t approve one of your photos and you have a question, please contact Customer Service.

How can I request a photo from another member online?

We encourage you to message that member and ask him/her to upload a picture to his/her profile. This is also a nice way to establish a connection even before seeing that member.

To add or remove a photo from your profile, visit the Edit Photos page by clicking the link on your Profile thumbnail in the top right corner of any page.

1. Scroll over the photo

How many photos can I upload?

You can upload up to 8 photos and we recommend you do so! We’ve seen that profiles with photos are 10x’s more likely to attract views… and matches!

I only want to view members who have photos. How do I do that?

At the top of the Search page, click on the check box that reads “Profiles with Photos Only.” This will modify your search results to show only members who have uploaded a photo. You can also set this in your Match Preferences so that all future searches will only show members with photos.

What should I write for my profile photo description?

Here are two easy tips for writing profile photo descriptions:

1. Refer to what’s going on in the photo so that members get a sense of what you love about your life. Maybe you’re playing with your dog, doing favorite sport or on a memorable trip.
2. Keep it light. If there is a funny story that goes along with your photo, feel free to mention it. Inspiring a smile is a great way to put someone at ease and inspire him/her to contact you.

Why doesn’t my photo show up? How long will it take for my photo to be approved?

Once your photos have uploaded, you will see “Awaiting Approval” to the right of each image. ChristianMingle will send you an email confirmation once each photo has been approved and posted to your profile. We try to get through all photo submissions quickly, but please allow up to 24-48 hours for approval. We review every photo to continue to make the ChristianMingle online dating experience safe for all members. Keep in mind that you should complete your profile while your photos are being approved.
