Original review: Sept. 18, 2022

I am a widow and after 2 years decided to step out and use this site because of the Christian affiliation. This was all new to me. I got on the site and checked it out and decided to pay for one month. I was on the site for one week. There were only a couple profiles I had interest in. I started a conversation with a man and listened to his story but never really felt it was the direction to go. I shared this with him, but it was not received well. I went back to the dating app and decided to respond to another person who had reached out to me. After a few days something did not seem right. The end result was both profiles were made by the same person. Different pictures, different contact information, it was unsettling. I am new to all this, so I have a lot to learn but I deactivated my account and will never go back on that site again. This was not a Christian encounter. Be careful ladies.

I joined the site and they denied my picture, then I complained to them and they accepted the picture. After they accepted the picture I purchased a 3-month subscription. After I purchased the three months subscription they denied the picture again, and I did not have any access to communicating with anyone. So after I purchased the subscription I actually had less access than I did before and my picture was removed. We went back and forth several times and I told them that the picture was already approved. I was so disgusted I told them just to cancel my subscription. They refused to refund my money and I had to go through another process to get a refund from the card company. Don't trust these scammers if they treat people like this there's no way you're going to get a legitimate chance at finding a good person with these crooks manipulating things. Just go to a different dating site and don't waste your time there. These people are mentally ill.

    So bad! In the match profile they sent me today there were people who last logged in 2, 3, 6,10 and 11 months ago!! Nobody earlier than 2 months ago! 11 months is ridiculous. I just started my account a couple days ago. I called to see if my settings are off because all the people I see are old profiles. They told me to widen my distance that I was searching in. I'm set to 50 miles!! I'm in Phoenix. That's all the have to offer I guess....$54 wasted. What more can I say?

    I signed up to this service and the only option was for 3 months. They advertise a large network of Christian people to meet. Within 10 minutes of signing up, I realized that there were very few people to meet in my town and wrote to the company asking for 2 of the 3 months refunded as I would not be using the site. They replied and assured me that they would stop my subscription (confirmed via email) and only charge for a month. 4 months later they took off $49 per month and an extra $149 per month that I did not authorize. I am struggling to get my money back and warn anyone that the service they promise actually does not exist (maybe in America it does but not in Australia (Perth) to be specific). I am so disappointed. As a single parent - the money they have taken is my grocery money for 3 months. Hopefully my bank can intervene on my behalf and get my money back.

    Christian Mingle should be called Scammers Mingle, I don't understand how this company is allowed to still be in business. Their website is very poor function and every profiles there is a fake, please don't waste your money with this site unless you are in the fraud business.

    This company does not acknowledge when you cancel your auto-renewal! The company just stole over $100 out of my checking account and disregarded my cancellation of my auto-renewal! I demanded it back, and told them to delete my account and profile! I have never seen such a site that sends out so many bots in my life! When you report a profile as a scam there is no response! The biggest waste of my money ever!! For all who have been scammed from this site I hope you tell others about your crappy experience and it shuts the site down!

    Problems:

    1. 90% of the women who contact you are scams, women from other countries.
    2. They make it so difficult to cancel your subscription.
    3. Horrible customer service.
    4. 80% of all the women do not have pictures.

    5. You know it's a scam every time because they "Always" ask you for your telephone number and email address.

    Here's how it went...This past March, after breaking up with a decent woman who is now my friend, I was browsing the Internet and decided to use a dating website again. Mind you I had bad experiences with Match and eHarmony in the past. I figured I would give C.M. a chance because I have faith and I want to have at least one kid in the future and of course a long-term relationship.

    In the first month of April, many matches but no responses except for a suspicious woman from the U.K. (I'm from NY state FYI) She said hello and didn't ask any important questions. The second month, in May, one woman reached out to me, and she basically said Hi and that was it, folks! Thirdly, today of all days, I get a message from someone from Michigan (allegedly) and she calls herself "Mary" while her profile lists her name as Brianna. Not only can this Mary not type well, but has almost no grasp of the English language. (That's a scam artist or scam idiot for you newbies.) This website shows no integrity and little honesty, and I hope that it crumbles. Thank you for reading.

    First off, the servers seem to be physically set in Germany, where the site owners are, because the response time is exceptionally slow. Very frustrating. Worse, there are more scammers and fake profiles than on any site I've been on; I think it's probably because scammers perceive Christians as easy prey. You can detect them by the language skills, the canned answers (or lack of appropriate answers) to questions, but it doesn't really matter, they're still not real. And most frustrating, they keep profiles up long after the member, real or fake, has gone.

    I received several matches of 7 (you receive those regularly) where NONE of them had been online since LAST YEAR. Apparently, it makes it look like there are people to choose from, when in fact, there aren't really any people to choose from. In addition, they ignore your preferences; they send whoever they can find regardless of whatever you said you don't want; that is, people of different sects of Christianity, race, they even occasionally sent me men. It was a waste of money.

    I joined on a Monday in May of 2022, I immediately was inundated men who were WIDOWED, no family, higher education, and willing to relocate. It was obvious most inquiries were canned, prewritten, and sickeningly sweet. Very Godly responses as well. I have wasted my hard-earned money. STAY AWAY! Also, the remaining profiles were OLD, with the user not having logged in for months.
