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
Is Christian Love Dating the same as Christian Connection? Their formats are exactly the same.
Hi Jen. The website registrars and owners appear to be different. Hard to say exactly but I'd say that they're not the same people.
Jen, try this as an experiment: go and put up a profile and state in your profile: homosexuality is sin, and if they delete you, they are the same website, as that is what Christian connection does, they delete your profile if you state something politically incorrect. they are not a christian website.
