Online Dating Site: Truth in advertising?

    I have been seeing commercials on TV for this website.
    The name of the site is:
    www.christianmingle.com

    Ok, so far so good.

    What trips me up is the site's tagline:

    "Find God's Match For You(tm)"

    How did that slogan get past the legal department?
    Aren't the opening themselves up for claims of pverpromising? False advertising?
    How can they make this claim???

      Okay, so you know with all the paid sites out there for finding love?  I found my husband on craigslist.  Go figure.

      I don't see anything wrong with this "Find God's Match For You(tm)" statement.

      sad

    You never know. Perhaps God personally blessed the computer programmers when they wrote that matchmaking technology.

    Prove that it isn't real! tongue

    Now that I think about it, maybe this is the most brilliant use of the Internet since Facebook!
    If you are for any reason unhappy with the person you get matched with, don't blame the site -- blame GOD!
    But, if you do blame GOD, you are obviously not a faithful Christian!
    In which case, YOU are the one who is engaging in false advertising -- coming onto a CHRISTIAN dating site under false pretenses. lol

    This site is pretty scammy. I push dating sites so I checked them out. They also run these sites:

    Jewish dating
    Black singles
    BBW (big ladies)
    Deaf singles
    Interracial dating

    A total of 28 different dating sites. I assume they all share the same database, even though they are all supposedly different.

    Sounds like true love to me!! big_smile

      but does God only get involved with matching up the Christians - or does He get involved with matching up all those other groups too?  hmm  Now THAT is the question, I think.   hmm
