way better than CMB and eHarmony
the obvious: I found more serious and committed Christians than in other dating apps, they also allow you to narrow down to specific denominations.
- There will always be dodgy, pushy, disrespectful people in these dating sites, it’s on us to be wise and discerning to filter, ignore, or block those kind of peold.
- Customer service always reply within 24 working hours.
- Pricing is also reasonable, I was lucky to sign up around Christmas/NY time where they give great discounted price.
- I agree that they need to boost their marketing/advertising cause it’ll help them by increasing their members and at the same time pushing the dodgy ones to the periphery or even quitting.

Wouldn't recommend it.
Was ok to start with but now too many people with fake profiles and starting to be infiltrated by scammers. Didn't like the fact that they auto renew your 6 monthly payments and it takes some effort to find where to stop it happening. Cancelled my membership after being ghosted by a lady.
Cancelled my subscription numerous times, complained many times yet they still take $38.99 from my account monthly x18
Cancelled subscription still billed x 18 regardless of cancellations, emails etc and when now reporting to iTunes guess what hidden in the complaints a sneaky little auto renew button that is not visible anywhere else. I would love to be refunded and for everyone else paying for something they have cancelled to be refunded too
I went on Christian Connection a few years ago hoping to meet a nice honourable Christian man and found the complete opposite. I received an email from one man and we had one phone conversation and then I decided not to pursue anything further with him and he threatened me with my life! I was so scared that I called the Police and also emailed the administrator on CC to ask them to investigate him!
Another man emailed me last year in June and we met up after a few phone calls. He seemed nice at first and we got along well. However, after...the third date he said he wanted to marry me and also wanted to have intercourse and was very persistent. I ended it with him and then about two weeks later we reconnected as he was remorseful and so I gave him a second chance. We dated for two months and I found out he was a Narcissist! So I had to end it promptly with him to save my sanity and soul! I would recommend all women to be very savvy and cautious with the men on any dating site, Christian or otherwise. Always meet in a public setting with other people around you, tell someone where you are going to meet this man and have a friend or family member call you after you've been with them for an hour. Park your car with other cars. And meet during the day, not at night. It's a treacherous world out there!
Saddened by conduct of men who claim to be Christian.
Some, (not all ) the guys expect you to go to bed with them.. they expect intimacy ie kissing on the second date. I had to check again to see if I hadn’t accidentally signed up on Tinder Hook up lol at least 5 of the guys made their intentions known. This is a Christian dating site , my expectation was that men who signed as Christians at least had one Godly principle. One guy called me “religious” for not kissing him and holding hands on our first date... ermmmm
I was stalked and threatened
I didn't respond to this so called Christian man for one whole day (after only speaking a few times with him, on a friends only basis,for the previous two days). Next time I looked in my inbox, he had texted abuse in 45 messages, including a story about a man stabbing his girlfriend for not giving him enough attention. I was so freaked out I went to the police. This was my first and last dating website I ever joined! And I joined a Christian one coz here I was thinking the men might be nicer and more respectful. But instead I came across a psychopath!
Well meaning but devoid of what the Bible teaches
I may I just say that as a Christian woman we don't need to sell ourselves on a dating websites irrespective of what the title says as in for this one a Christian dating site.. I had my fair share of eye opening experience here and may you take heed of what others have to say here on this product review.. And ironically you are reading the reviews of a product.. People go on the site and pay for it and then yes they want to buy a product from this site..
He says "She said YES!!!!!." She says "Wow he asked me to marry him".
He says - Have been a member for nearly 2 years. Met some lovely people, coffee meetups, dinner dates and movie dates and very pleasant conversations. As a guy, I didn't encounter any serious scammers, but did get some messages from people obviously outside my stated parameters of interest.
In January, I got a compliment from a member, and I responded with a question. That resulted in an avalanche of messages backwards and forwards, where we asked and answered questions about everything and nothing. Then we stepped it up to voice calls (scar...y) but we found we talk as much as we had messaged. Then the dreaded, make or break, first date. We already knew so much about each other because of the contact possible through the site. A courageous lady came sailing with me. We ran aground!!! It was a God moment where both she and I responded in the most positive way that neither of us expected, as we both expected the worst, but instead discovered the best. We only dated for 4 or 5 dates, before I asked her to be my girlfriend. What a wonderful few months leading up to knowing that I had found my match. A lady that so fulfils all my wishes of what I was looking to find. So early this month (July), I asked her to be my wife and she said YES!!! This would never have happened without Christian Connection. So I have to say it is a good site, but also that the whole process can work, and for some people it does. I'm still amazed that it worked for me. She says - I was on the site for only a few weeks and had had several conversations with other people. I hoped to meet someone but was sceptical at my age; I thought at best I may find a good friend to go to movies etc with. Unlike other sites, there were only a few scammers and Admin were quick to notify me about these. The site was easy to use and the site's questions helped me develop my profile, and clarify my expectations. It is much improved since I first used the site in 2013. I loved his profile, he took time to complete the questions in some detail and he matched what I was looking for. The chance to message whilst still on the site provided me with a sense of security - and not receiving a warning from admin about him helped! The ability to message in real time was also helpful. It was exciting to be able to find that same connection face to face. He is a man of surprises - first asking me to be his girlfriend and now to be his wife. He makes me laugh, encourages me to play and be myself. God brought us together and draws us closer each day. Christian Connection, like other on-line dating sites needs you to be careful and wise but it does work. I look forward to a new life with this amazing man.
Login so secure even members cannot log in!!
Set up profile, receive numerous promotional and notification emails but when I try to log on no email with link received. I would presume the people I had previously contacted will presume I'm no longer interested and/or wasting their time. Would delete my profile but of course have to log in to do that. Oh! and before you say it, double, triple, quadruple checked my email.

WOW .. what a controlling site .. unprofessional and even though I was abiding by their TERMS .. but had voiced my disappointment in the way they stated things and threatened to close my Profile... they didn't show the proof in the examples they had sent at all that I had breeched their Terms.. but now because of my email stating my disappointment but accepting that I was abiding by their unlawful and Controlling Terms.. they have Cancelled My Profile... don't use this site .. not professional at all. I was 100 percent genuine and decent in all...my correspondence to other Profile Members .. GODLY in My attempt to find One Equal GODLY Lady... but their System is not set up to be fair and reasonable and especially not LAWFUL as the Adult Laws allow. Its all about MONEY at the bottom of it all. They GOT my Money and No refund. See my emails below...And no way had I not agreed to do as I was requested to do. I did communicate my disappointment in being harassed when I knew I hadn't done anything wrong. Even the links of their proof had no justification for them threatening me. Seems [name removed] didn't like me saying he was unprofessional. . But very much wrong the way I was treated.. Read emails below Dear Daryl Thank you for your email. I'm sorry to hear that you are not willing to change the way that you behave on Christian Connection. You agreed to abide by the terms and conditions of the website when you first signed up and we have explained very clearly where you have continued to breach these terms on several occasions. As you have chosen to continue to ignore our suggestions and have continued to breach the terms and argue with our staff, we have no other option but to close your account with immediate effect. I'm sorry we couldn't come to an agreement this time, but I wish you well in your search for a partner.
Great site all around
Fantastic site to try meet someone of faith, reasonably priced, real profiles have met over 10 people in 2016 and been on 6 physical dates. Much much much better experience than eHarmony which is the only other site I tried, only drawback is fewer numbers but still a great online dating experience.
Using Christians for Money Making Greedy Website.
You wouldn't know how it works when you join but they give you 3 days of trial so you don't really know whether you need to pay when you just replying to someone 's msg.
So you start conversation but after 3days you won't be send any message unless you subscribe lol
So if you liked that person you'd better exchange email addy before they stop you!
Money charging system should be more clear and NOTIFYING MEMBERS they all need to SUBSCRIBE even if REPLYING to received msg lol
Poor customer service
I used to be on Christian Connection until I got kicked off because someone had allegedly sent a "serious report" about me. At no time was I given the opportunity to answer any accusations (whatever they were) and was just dumped off the site. No right of appeal, no other explanations, just dumped. I very much doubt if Christian Connection every got any substantiation from these (at best spurious) allegations because frankly I never ever said or did anything worth reporting to anyone I met on that site. So it seems that if someone bears a grudge against you, or you do or say anything that might tick them off, then they can just say whatever they like to Christian Connection and they can get you kicked off!
Great Online Dating But lacks Members
This is one of the most underrated dating sites on the internet. I met a few people on this site however it is poorly marketed so lacks a strong regular amount of members to the site. It is a real shame as the site design and payment options are very user friendly. Maybe it is just a sign of the times with not so many religious men or women hence the site not attracting many users.
Easy to use
No marketing of product so lacks adequate amount of members
Questions & Answers
I used my middle name which I do for a lot of things including work and was suspended off the site. Card I used to make payment was in my sisters name as didn’t have my card with me at the time . Was asked to provide proof due , photo ID to card and my details not matching. No one responded to email. So closed the account as wasn’t able to use it. Pretty much told me I was a scammer in the email I received . Never scammed anyone, just had a few lovely conversations but luckily, exchanged numbers with someone before . Felt like I got scammed by the site in a way .
Hi. I am 52 and a Christian lady (over 30 years saved). I am single and looking for company... more a companion to start off with rather than immediately entering into a committed relationship or coupling up. I have come out of a marriage of control and abuse and am weary to put myself out there. Now what I want to know is if I do sign up, do I need to give my "real" name and do i have to post a photo? I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you. Renay
Hey Renay. You do not have to give your real name or post a photo but in respect of the latter the likely hood of getting any responses is greatly reduced. Best wishes.
so sorry to hear of your circumstances - you are a brave woman and understand your caution. Posting a photo improves your chances of someone contacting you, and to be honest I didn't look at profiles without a photo - for me putting up my photo was the most stressful & intimidating part of the process. Your name is used, but first name only is used onsite. The thing that is nice for CC is that for females they they display your area generically - eg Sydney east, western sydney etc rather than your suburb.
I found a mentor for the process, a christian woman who I trusted as a sort of spiritual advisor - and let people close to you know what you are doing - that is your safety. Don't go off the site to chat, the genuine men will stay on the site. Follow the sites recommendations and google has some great tips for online dating. Listen for God's voice, it can sometimes be drowned in the anxiety. I was looking for a companion, so was my now husband. I wish you well. Carolyn
