8 of the Best Christian Dating Apps for Single Moms

Below are eight Christian dating apps for single moms to try. A few things to keep in mind when trying out different dating apps, particularly Christian dating apps:

  • Just because it’s a “Christian” site doesn’t mean all the men will be Christian or have Christian values.
  • Like any dating site, you’ll have to search through the gravel to find the gemstones.
  • There isn’t one dating site that’s better than another. For every site, you’ll hear awesome marriage stories and terrible rejection stories.
  • Many people get on more than one site and try out the free trial period and see if it’s worth investing in.
  • Have a solid foundation of who you are and what you’re looking for. Ask God for discernment and wisdom.
  • Try a site or two then take a break. No need to swear off online dating forever.
  • Try to have fun.

Popular Dating Sites that aren’t specifically Christian for Single Moms

Lots of single moms in my community recommend the following dating apps. Most apps allow you to customize the search options if you’re looking for Christians or a certain religion. So sometimes it can be more helpful to go off a traditional Christian dating site to see if a man intentionally puts Christian or God or Jesus in his profile.

  • Coffee meets bagel
  • Bumble – women make the first contact
  • Match – it’s been around the longest and still pretty popular so there’s a large pool
  • Facebook dating / Zoosk – it shows if you had mutual friends
  • Hinge
  • Plenty of Fish
