Signing Up

Christian Cafe Registration
  • Free trial is automatically activated after sign-up
  • Required to provide profile information
  • Legally married individuals are highly discouraged to join the site
  • Profile photos and self-written paragraphs can be added later
  • Christian Cafe will provide your final username and password

Signing up in Christian Cafe is an easy and straightforward process. In the initial steps, you will be asked to provide some basic information such as your email, city, country, zip code, gender, and birthday. You will also need to nominate a username (numbers and special characters are not allowed), and the username of the person who referred you to use the website (if there was).

Afterwards, you will be required to provide additional profile information about your appearance, lifestyle, home and status, schooling and employment, and religious activities. Once everything is filled out, you will be taken to a set of questions and a profile photo upload. These steps are optional but would increase the chances of your profile getting noticed in the site.

In the last step of the registration, you won’t need to provide anything. Instead, Christian Cafe will give you your final username and password. You have to remember the password they give out because once you exit the screen, the only way to get it back is to contact their customer service. Or, you could change your password right then and there to something that would be easier to remember.

Making Contact

christian cafe quick match
  • Matching is done via the ‘QuickMatch’ feature
  • There is a percentage number indicating your compatibility with the other member
  • You can set email notifications from your new matches
  • You can save your search queries
  • Contacting features are only for premium members

Most contacting features such as sending winks, emails, and most importantly exchanging contact information is only for Christian Cafe’s premium members. In the free trial, you could do these things except for exchanging contact information. Emails and phone numbers are automatically blurred when you try to send them during the trial. This just means that messaging in Christian Cafe is monitored by its admins. For each message that you send or receive, a notification will be sent to you or the other person’s email.

Christian Cafe matches its users using their ‘QuickMatch’ feature. ‘QuickMatch’ ranks the members with a percentage number indicating how compatible you are with another member. The bases of its match suggestions are how close your answers are about age, type of relationship, Christian faith, and location. You can sort the results based on rank, photo, username, gender, age, location, and profile views.

Profile Quality

  • Photo uploads are moderated and can be removed or modified
  • ‘Last viewed’ information available
  • ‘Last online’ information is indicated on the profile
  • Features personal information and self-written paragraphs
  • Members are allowed to upload three photos
  • ‘View Similar Profiles’ button can be clicked on every member’s profile
  • The profiles are quite detailed
  • Profile pictures are visible to everyone for free

The extent of the information you will find about any Christian Cafe member depends on how much information each member is willing to share. If you will check the profiles, there are three types of information you can find.

The first kind is what they call, ‘Vitals’. This section tells about a member’s essential information such as age and location. It also says about the last time the user was online and the last time you visited his or her profile.

Next is the ‘Profile’ which features personal information about appearance, faith, children, schooling and employment, and lifestyle.

Right after this section, you will find the member’s self-written paragraph. These are also the members' answers to the questions asked by Christian Cafe. They try to shed light on a user’s personality and character.

App

  • Fewer features than the website
  • Design is outdated
  • Not many users are online
  • Only available in Apple App Store

When you use Christian Cafe’s mobile app to create an account, your mobile browser will automatically start up as you will be redirected to the app’s mobile website. Christian Cafe’s mobile app is only available to download for iOS users. The version for Android has undergone a redesign and is set to launch next year.

The mobile app does not have the ‘Forum’ and ’Prayer’ features. It only has the search and messaging features. On the home page, you are presented with a membership offer on the very top of the page if you are a free member. Under this section are announcements or unread messages. At the very bottom, ‘Highlighted Members’ are listed in a linear layout.

Real Life Review

As a devout Christian, I want my partner to share the same beliefs and faith as me. And in the Land of the Free, it’s kind of hard to find someone who is a devout Christian at a random place. Which is why when my buddy at Church told me about Christian Cafe and how he’d gone on dates with the women he met through the website, I immediately checked it out. I signed up for the free trial and had the pleasure of experiencing premium perks for 10 days. Now I have a 2-week membership and thinking of upgrading to 6-months membership as soon as it ends. I’m truly having an enjoyable time, and the fellowship in the site makes me feel like I belong to a community who I can turn to at any time I need. It’s funny cause I initially signed up for Christian Cafe in the hopes of getting a Christian woman, but I received fellowship instead, and I couldn’t be happier about how it all turned out. Also, I have a date tomorrow night with a woman I met through the site. We’ve been talking for 2 weeks now, and I hope it’ll go well. I have high hopes. I’m thankful for the site because I don’t feel lonely anymore. - Jason, 29

Design and Usability

The design of Christian Cafe is old-fashioned, yet this might be because the website wants to be simple. It is plain and simple maybe because it wants to cater to Christian singles of all ages. It could be designed a whole lot better. The design sticks to the colors of white, gray, and brown. There is no color play as to put emphasis to some details found on a page.

All the features of the website can be found on the header menu, with tabs having drop-down menus for its more specific feature pages. The ‘Online’ page displays all users who are online in a linear layout, which can make browsing a bit demanding. On the ‘Search’ page, you have to set your query first before you can see suggested members, which will also be shown in a linear display. Even the profile information is presented in a linear arrangement, causing a lot of white spaces on the page.

When it comes to usability, all buttons are somewhat accessible on the page. Navigation needs time in getting used to.
