Catholic Mingle's aim is to bring Catholic women and men together in a friendly, simple online community. This pay site has a free membership option; however those wishing to use unrestricted chat and messaging will need to purchase a premium membership plan.
They allow free memberships but with very restrictive access. To unlock email and most other features you will have to upgrade from free to Premium. Upon opting for a Premium Membership you'll have to select one of three billing options.
The upgrade then provides access to chat and instant messenger as well as Bible verse search and a local events calendar. Members can personalize their profiles in a number of distinctive ways.
CatholicMingle helps you find a compatible match with their Ideal Match software. To use this you'll need to fill in the personality section on your profile in full.
CatholicMingle is a very simple site. It claims a safe environment for compatible Catholic singles to get to know each other. The main problem for me was that membership levels are low and there's a lack of activity once online. This means many emails go unanswered.
