Overall Review

Christian Cafe is owned and operated by Christians, which sets it apart from other leading dating websites in the niche. RealCafes.com based in Canada runs the website and primarily focuses on singles from the US, UK, Canada and Australia. It was started in 1999 after the founder Sam Moorcroft envisioned to create the largest dating service for Christians.

With a whopping 100,000 members, ChristianCafe provides a lively atmosphere for Christian singles to virtually date other like-minded individuals. The website has a cute and colorful layout with plenty of testimonials and success stories displayed right on their homepage. The quality of their services can be figured out by the happiness expressed by their members in finding their perfect partners through ChristainCafe.com.

Getting Started

New users can sign up for free by filling out their gender, birth date and location. For creating a profile on Christian Cafe, users must respond to a set of multiple choice questions. It covers topics on background, lifestyle and personality traits. Since it is a faith-based website, it has a separate religion section for mentioning your church name, denomination and church involvement.

Apart from the basic questions, users are encouraged to answer free response questions to spruce up their profile. They are not mandatory and you can skip the questions if you wish. It is more about enhancing your personality traits to attract better matches on the website. Photos can also be included in the profile.

Christian Cafe has good quality members due to their extensive screening system. They take lots of efforts to check profile and personal information. Only decent photos are allowed on the website. Any type of nude or revealing photos is subjected for removal. Offensive language and advertisements are also not allowed on this website.

Find Your Mate

Search criteria are extensive with plenty of options to select matches.

Other than this, standard search options include username, keywords, birthday, new and online members. You can also know whether they are exact, not so exact or perfectly compatible matches.

But Christian Cafe shines in their communication facilities; where members can chat with other members by sending actual messages.

Forums are an interesting option to interact with other users in a community-minded setting.

Bottom Line

Christian Cafe prides itself with its quality of members in spite of having a relatively less number of active members. They verify all its members and provide a secure browsing and dating experience. One of the biggest lags on Christian Cafe is the site design. It’s difficult to navigate and pages are crowded. Also, free membership expires after a week with denied messaging services without putting an expiry date for the profile. However, it can be the best dating site for Christian singles to find their special someone.
