Pros: There is a strange thrill in being able to 'swipe' that acquaintance you've always fancied, asking them for a date (up) or telling them you want to sleep with them (down). Cons: It pulls in every single woman who happens to be your friend on Facebook, even if they haven't joined Down yet (your cowardly come on will be waiting for them if they ever do), making it rather pointless.
Verdict: The more you think about it, the less sense Down makes.
There are frequent gatherings in restaurants, bars, churches, museums or country walks.
The Christian Connection discussion boards are a popular way to share stories, advice and opinions about life as a single Christian.
Here, we take the biggest alternatives to Tinder and give them a spin to find out what (if anything) they do differently and what sets them apart.
The USP: Their mantra and methodology is explained thus: 'Each day at noon, guys will receive up to 21 quality matches – known as “Bagels”. Then, Coffee Meets Bagel will curate the best potential matches for women among the men who expressed interest.'Pros: A more curated selection than just endlessly swiping through everyone.
Outside of church and work, it's often difficult to find places to meet other single Christians — online Christian dating solves this problem.
