The sign-up process is straightforward and takes only a few minutes to complete. You will be asked your height, body type, and other similar and quite typical questions. There are several choices in terms of religious observance, including “Other/Unaffiliated”. Once you gain access, you can further flesh out your profile by selecting hobbies you enjoy, completing essays to provide a glimpse of your personality, and by selecting preferences for your ideal match. The site also offers a free “Color Code” personality type test to all members.
It is free to join; however, paid memberships allow access to additional features. With a free membership, you are able to search for matches and filter the results by several common criteria (age, education, distance from a given ZIP code, etc.). You can also browse and read the message boards, but cannot post or reply to topics. As with many other dating sites, you will not be able to communicate with other members without a paid membership. Essentially, as a free member, you can see what the site has to offer without the commitment of subscribing. On the positive side, there is no limit to the time you can remain a free member of the site.
Should you decide to subscribe, a paid membership provides access to many additional features. As a full subscriber, you can interact with others on the message boards, send and receive private mail messages, reply to smiles, and chat live with other members.
Jewish Mingle has a “Think You'd Click!” feature that presents you with member profiles and asks you whether or not you believe you would be a good match with that member. Don't worry about offending anyone, because the responses are kept confidential. If you and the other member both indicate by an affirmative response there is potential for a possible match, you'll both receive a “Click Alert!” and you have the option of pursuing further contact with the other party.
If you would like to test the waters, but don't feel ready to send an email or to instant message the member who interests you, there is the option of sending a smile or a spark. Either of which is a quick way to break the ice and see if the other member is receptive to further communication.
The free features on Jewish Mingle are rather limited. You are able to see which members viewed your profile, send smiles, and review matches by email. In practical terms, though, you're basically limited to browsing profiles as a free member. If you want to communicate with other members (aside from sending a smile), you will be required to join the site as a paying member. The free membership, however, is a good way to familiarize yourself with the site and see if it is one for which you feel is worth purchasing a subscription. As mentioned above, there is no time limit on the free membership.
