Frequently Asked Questions. DateChristian.org Christian dating site.
Online dating is no longer something to frown upon. A study done by the University of Chicago has shown that a whopping 35% of recently married American couples have met online. As a matter of fact, couples that met online were more likely to stay together. We don’t have any figures with regards to CHristians, but it seems that nowadays every church has at least a few couples that met online.
There are a few ways in which we verify profiles. First, we read all profiles; second, we check all pictures; third, our own secret procedure; fourth, we keep watching.
We read all profiles. As fellow Christian singles, it is usually quite easy for us to spot who is genuine and who is not.
We are also aware that some people are not as vocal as others. So we don’t require an essay on your conversion story. However, if the profile has hardly any text, and is clearly not Christian or is too vague, then we do tend to remove it.
We check all pictures manually. We not only look at the pictures, we also use special image recognition software to verify if the picture has not been borrowed from elsewhere on the web.
Our own secret procedure. Suffice it to say that among other things we check our member’s IP addresses, we have certain IP addresses blocked, and we automatically check messages and profiles for inappropriate language.
We do way more than any other Christian dating site known to us. However we DO NOT verify our CHristian singles’ ID’s, their physical addresses, , the truthfulness of any of their communications, etc. If you require this level verification then please do not join dateChristian.org (or even Facebook for that matter), but hire a private detective! On a more serious note if you follow our online dating safety tips, you should be more than fine!
We have found that in 99% of the times this a browser issue. Try cleaning your browser cache and try again. You may clean you cache by pressing; Control + Shift + Delete. A product that we like to use in order to clean or cache is called CCleaner. DateChristian.org is in no way affiliated with Pirirform or CCleaner.
DateChristian.org used to allow single Christians to communicate free of charge. We unfortunately no longer have free messages, as a few people misused this feature for everyone else.
DateChristian.org uses encrypted databases. Is monitored around the clock by Sitelock for any security breaches. We are SSL certified by Comodo secure. When making a payment, we will direct you to the site of our payment processor CcBill. This means that we do not hold any of your personal information, except for your e-mail address. The password that you use to access dateChristian.org is safely encrypted in our databases and is not visible to us. Nevertheless, never ever use the same password that you use for your e-mail account on other websites, whether that website is DateChristian.org, Facebook, Ebay, Amazon or Gmail.
No you do not. All you need is to be a single Christian over the age of 18 and have a working e-mail account.
To send a message to Christian singles, click on ‘send message’ a profile and windows opens from which you can send a message. To reply to a message, go to my messages, click on the message title.
DateChristian.org automatically sends you an e-mail notification when you have received a new message (these notifications can be turned off here). Do not reply to these messages, as it will not get to the sender. Please login to your dateChristian.org account and reply from there.
Yes, non-Christians can join dateChristian.org! We attempt to reach out to non-believers to come onto Christ, as should all believing Christians. Just like in a brick and mortar church our virtual doors are open to all. But we of course do not tolerate inappropriate or unChristian behavior. The Bible teaches us in 1 Corinthians 15:23, "If therefore the whole church should assemble together and all speak in tongues, and ungifted men or unbelievers enter, will they not say that you are mad?"
We go through new / changed profiles on a daily basis and we purge profiles that do not meet our standards. This is usually because: • There is no picture. • The profile has no or very little text. • The profile has not been in use for some time. •The online dating profile contained contact details. So please make sure to have a complete profile. Writing an essay is not necessary, but at least sentence or two would be nice. An incomplete online dating profile is as good as good as having none; you will get very few reactions.
The fact is that some members like to send one liners such as ‘Hey Hello’, ‘You seem nice’, ‘let’s chat’ or simply use the system’s default messages. This does not make these messages harassment; they are just trying to make that Initial contact. To block a member go to their profile and look underneath their profile picture where it says and 'Add to friends' . Click on the three dots next to 'Add to friends' and select 'block member'. You may also report a member if you deem their behavior inappropriate.
You can upload up to 50 pictures to your dateChristian.org profile. First Login to your profile, secondly click on ‘my pictures’ Next click ‘create album’ (if you don’t already have an album). After clicking ‘Submit’ you can start uploading pictures to your online dating profile!
This is no longer possible. But you may still attach videos to messages.
Don’t hide your lamp under bushel. Ask yourself: how complete and unique is my Christian dating profile? Profiles with no text or with a description that is too general (it could be anyone) and with no pictures get almost no attention. So please have a look at our online dating profile tips on how to have success with online dating. Having a good online dating profile is not difficult all.
Please use the contact form to contact us. dateChristian.org does not offer phone support, as we’ve found that e-mail enables us to provide the fastest and best response to your query.
All too often we get messages that we just cannot link to a profile or payment because the sender did not include basic information such as:
• Profile name.
• Email used to pay or register.
So, when contacting us, please include your dateChristian.org username and please use the e-mail address that you have registered with on dateChristian.org.
This means that the member is no longer part of dateChristian.org. The user got cancelled because they requested this . When a member cancels their online dating profile on dateChristian.org, this also deletes all of their messages (both sent and received). The members’ online dating profile and all communication with other Christian singles get encrypted and shredded; there is no way that we can recover anything.
DateChristian.org is no longer offered in Spanish. We understand that not every Christians' first language is English, but we would like to encourage you to write in English. You could for example use Google translate. We delete profiles that are not written in English!
Can I have my profile set up so I can contact other Christian singles, but without appearing openly on dateChristian.org(as in on search results, the home page etc)?Yes you may, this video explains how.
We do sometimes provide members with refunds, however this is always at our discretion. Not having anyone mail you or not finding your prince (or princess) charming is never a reason for a refund! We do not actively monitor how often you login to dateChristian.org. Not making use of our Christian online dating site, whilst being a paying member is also not a reason for a refund. Many other (CHristian) online dating sites require you to pay even before you can do almost anything on their websites. To browse dateChristian.org you do not even need a profile. Many features are free of charge. So please have a good look around dateChristian.org before you enter into a paying subscription.
You can cancel your dateChristian.org online dating account by going to 'my settings' and by clicking on 'cancel account'. If you are a paying member you can also just cancel your payments, but still keep a free profile with all the benefits of a free profile. Click here to cancel your payments.
We often get the question whether cancelled profiles can be revived. The answer is no, cancelled = cancelled. We do not archive your profile after it has been cancelled. It gets encrypted and shredded. Also, if you delete messages from your inbox, deleted = deleted.
DateChristian.org is an online dating site for Christians with lot of free features, but not all. A totally free online dating site lacks quality, both in features and in its members. There would, for example, be no way that we could verify our members as we do. dateChristian.org would be full of people who cannot remotely be considered Christian. As a free member, you can: • Create a profile with up to 50 pictures! • Send message to other Christian singles. • Send gifts. As a paid member you can: • Do all the above. • Read your messages. • See who has viewed your profile. Prices start at less than a meal at your favorite fast food restaurant.
