Christian Mingle's new, sappy song actually nauseates me. The one with the

smarmy guy singing something about "The woman runs to the man and she cries..."



The whole website creeps me out for some reason and that song just takes the cake. Now there's allegedly a rapist victimizing women. Yikes.

I don't know why it bugs me so much.

2. If God is totally in charge of, like, everything,

why does he need a web site run by mortals for money, in order for you to find the mate he has chosen for you?

3. So ignore the ads and the site. Sheesh.

No one says you're forced to watch the ads or visit the site. If you don't like them, don't watch or visit them, simple enough. And as for the rapist meeting his victim on the site, yes, that is, indeed, horrible, but that has been the case for almost every single dating site that there is, not to mention sites like Craigslist (where murderers have actually met their victims). It's not solely particular to the Christian dating site.

13. Oh, I'm sorry. I was just expressing my own opinion,

after you'd expressed yours. I didn't realize you only wanted agreement with your opinion. My bad.

9. Just make sure to not get matched to this guy.............

http://news.yahoo.com/christianmingle-date-rape-victims-sought-calif-cops-175045106--abc-news-topstories.html

A suspected rapist accused of sexually assaulting a woman he met on ChristianMingle.com may have used the dating site to prey on women while he traveled across the country, California police said today.

Sean Patrick Banks, 37, a former Navy sailor, used a fake name to contact a woman who he allegedly raped in November, cops in La Mesa, Calif., said. Investigators believe that he used additional aliases to contact other women on the popular website and police hope that if there are additional victims they will recognize Banks.

11. Spark Networks

Spark Networks (NYSE MKT: LOV) owns many special-interest online personal sites, such as JDate.com, BlackSingles.com, ChristianMingle.com and LDSMingle.com; it also owns the general-interest site Spark.com. Former CEO Adam Berger referred to it as "niche" dating.

Yes, Christian Mingle is owned by the same company that owns JDate for Jews and LDSMingle for Mormons.
