Online dating has come a long way since the mid-to-late 90’s when it first started. It’s gone from being a stigma to widely accepted. It’s now so common-place that in 2017 almost 20% of married Americans met their spouses online. That’s more than any other method of meeting your spouse. This is a dramatic jump, too: in 2015, a Pew research study quoted only 5% of marriages from connecting on an online dating site.
Because many online dating sites are designed to let you get to know someone before you connect in person, it’s no surprise that these marriages tend to last longer than more “traditional” methods of connecting. For example, online dating marriages are less likely to end within the first year (when a lot of marriages break up). And, those who met their spouses online reported being happier in their marriage than those who met offline.
Conception and Results
ChristianCafe.com was conceived and developed back in 1998. It launched in February 1999.
This was driven by a personal need of co-Founder, Sam Moorcroft, who found himself suddenly single in his early 30’s. He found it difficult to connect with the types of women he was interested in, especially concerning their faith. As a practicing Christian, he wanted someone who’s life was defined by their faith in Jesus and who live it as best they can on a daily basis.
People in general lead increasingly busy lives and traditional venues of connecting were no longer as common, even in the late 90’s. For people of faith, it was (and is) even harder. A bar or club isn’t an ideal place for Christian singles to meet their potential mate. Connecting in church can be a challenge, too, because it’s not designed for that (even though most singles Christians wish it was!).
From the moment ChristianCafe.com was launched, it was in high demand. We haven’t looked back since. It has remained a preferred venue for Christian singles looking to connect with others of like mind and faith since it’s launch 20 years ago.
In fact, over 3,000,000 singles have registered accounts with us since then, and hundred of thousands of connections have been made, including over 25,000 marriages! We have 3,000+ testimonials posted on our website, so newcomers can see for themselves that online dating truly works for our Christian daters.
We receive daily accounts of successful matches. One of the coolest stories we receive are about what we affectionately call “Cafe babies”. These are the children of our connected singles who resulted from our previously single, now married, members! Seeing these matches makes us happy (and seeing new families even happier)!
Here’s a cute story about one couple who met and married here. They appeared on Britain’s Got Talent. When they were asked how they met, they said through ChristianCafe.com. One of the judges, David Walliams, said, “There you go Simon, you could find a wife on there“. Our hunch is that Simon isn’t our ideal candidate, but you never know!
10 Day Free Trial to Connect
ChristianCafe.com offers a generous 10-day free trial (7 days, plus 3 for posting photos) where new members can experience for themselves the excitement of connecting with thousands of like-minded fellow believers. During their trial, they can discover singles based on what’s important for them, from faith level to church attendance and involvement, to shared hobbies and interests, geographical location, and physical characteristics.
We offer unlimited searching, messaging, and interacting with our Christian singles during your free trial. It’s designed as a great opportunity for you to see the value we offer in helping you connect for a long-term relationship, leading to marriage. We have singles looking for any level of commitment, from pen-pals to friends, to relationships. However, most are interested in getting married (or, re-married).
ChristianCafe.com exists because of our members seeing the value in our service. We offer easily affordable memberships for those who wish to continue beyond their free trial. For far less than a daily cup of coffee (or tea), you can continue to have unlimited access to our exciting Christian singles, 24/7!
Active and Exciting Members
We have thousands and thousands of active members, with new ones joining constantly. Our database of singles is vibrant, exciting, and diverse. And, the vast majority are born-again / non-denominational Christians. Basically, we have someone for everyone, as you’ll quickly see by perusing our testimonials.
There is a real sense of community at ChristianCafe.com. We have a post-a-prayer page, where members can post their concerns and other members can pray for them, and vice versa. There are also forums consisting of many topics of interest to Christian singles, as well as theology. Provided people are respectful to one another, anything can be discussed.
Safety and Security
ChristianCafe.com was designed with your safety and anonymity in mind. We want our singles to feel safe and secure when browsing the website and interacting with one another. Accordingly, we built it so that you can reveal only as much about yourself as you feel comfortable doing. We have many safety tips, with them revolving around the concept of using your common sense! Just because someone is online doesn’t mean you act as if you’ve known them forever and reveal everything about yourself. By employing good judgment, just as you do in the online world, including your “gut feel” you’ll be more likely to have successful connections.
