Christian Dating For Free Review

It’s all in the name: is a Christian dating site that is completely free to join and use. The company claims to be “the largest 100% free Christian dating site on the Web.” Exact numbers are hard to come by, but with a price tag so low, there’s nothing to lose by trying it out.

Christian Dating for Free is a wholly-owned subsidiary of EDating for Free, Inc., an online Christian dating service provider whose properties include Catholic Dating for Free, and Black Christian Dating for Free. Their goal is to match Christian singles around the globe so, naturally, faith governs much of what they do.

Safety and security are top priorities on CDFF. Personal information is heavily guarded and extra precautions are taken to protect users against profanity and other inappropriate material. Users are encouraged to report any instances of indecency. Objectionable content will be reviewed and responded to within a 24-hour period.

Membership to CDFF is free and, unlike many other dating sites, includes full functionality. Free users can create a profile, upload pictures, search members, send winks and view matches. Free members can even receive, send, and reply to messages.

In exchange for access to the site’s complete range of features, free CDFF members see highly visible advertisements from sponsors. Some may find the banner ads, inbox ads and text ads irritating or distracting, but it’s the price paid for using the service without owing a penny. Those who find the advertisements objectionable can pay for an ad free experience.

A paid subscription to Christian Dating for Free removes all sponsored promotions for the small price of $4.95 per month. Compared to the paid memberships of most online dating sites, the cost is extremely low. All users, paid or free, are also invited to donate via Paypal to support the site’s operations if they have a good experience.

As a largely free service, CDFF offers the basics of a dating site without any bells or whistles. You can communicate via wink, chat, or mail messages, keep a favorites list, and see who viewed your profile. The basic search covers the must-haves, allowing you to filter by gender, age, looking for, and location. The advanced search allows you to dig deeper, filtering by details like marital status, lifestyle habits, appearance, and religious affiliation.

As a faith-based site, religion plays a role in your experience on CDFF. Your profile features your denomination, but includes “non-denominational,” “not sure yet,” and “other” as options. Religion is heavily present in the chat forum, where you’ll find a message board that mixes secular topics with discussions of Christianity. Faith also informs the live chat rooms, which are divided into themes like “General Christian Chat,” “Bible Study Room,” and “Christians In Their 30s.”

Despite the no-frills appearance of the desktop site, Christian Dating for Free is unexpectedly tech savvy. The company has profiles on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. CDFF also offers free mobile applications for Android and iOS.

The apps maintain the practical, essentials-only structure of the website. The design is stripped down to the fundamentals and ads are present, but all the functionality is available. Mobile users can view matches, conduct searches, send and read messages, and more. If it’s available on the desktop site, it’s available in the mobile app. Mobile users can also update their profile and change their account settings. The apps are available from iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon.

Christian Dating for Free could be an ideal starting point for religious singles who are just beginning to explore online dating. The atmosphere is friendly, the site is simple to use, and with free memberships available, there’s no risk to trying it out.
