How Higher Bond Works

Today’s dating culture is one that glorifies watered-down values, disposability, and meaningless interactions. It’s all about instant gratification, luke-warm connections, and swiping endlessly until your finger falls off or you get burnt out.

Even most “Christian” dating apps on the market miss the mark, which sadly is what should be expected as those apps are not owned and operated by Christians, yet they have a massive impact on the faith community.

Higher Bond aims to address these issues along with many more. As a 100% Christian owned company, the Higher Bond team prayerfully worked to design a dating website for Christian singles who genuinely value faith as the driving force behind their relationship decisions.

What we’d like to show you now are a few of the features and ways that Higher Bond is actually different and then encourage you to consider giving it a try (for free).

100% Manual Account and Photo Approval

Whether a dating site is worth it or not starts and ends with the quality and the authenticity of its members. Unfortunately, most dating apps these days are full of fake accounts, incomplete profiles, scammers, and people who are up to no good. This is often the fault of the app refusing to dedicate the necessary resources to ensure a safe, secure, and complete online dating experience.

At Higher Bond, we do things differently. 100% of all accounts that apply for membership are manually verified by a real human to ensure you are getting the quality experience that you’re looking for. Additionally, 100% of photos uploaded to the platform are manually approved to ensure that they are in line with our quality guidelines. We don’t allow any shirt-off pictures, bikini photos, excessive cleavage, suggestive photos, or anything else that doesn’t have a place on this platform or in the world of dating.

Daily Batch Matching

Everyday, we’ll send you a batch of 3-5 new matches that we’ve carefully curated for you. Your matches will refresh every 24 hours.

Why this approach?

Most online dating apps and websites give you access to a massive catalog of singles all at once or an endless stream of singles to swipe through. While it might sound productive to have this many options, we believe that is not the case. Having this many options at once causes people to spend hours on end dating online, which can be detrimental to their mental health.

Online dating is an effective way to meet quality singles, but it starts to lose that effectiveness when it’s not consumed in moderation.

One New Conversation Per Day

As a Premium Member of Higher Bond, you can initiate one new conversation per day.

That means out of your 3-5 daily matches, you can only pick one person that you’d like to start a conversation with. You can always continue on as many active conversations as you already have going, but you can only start one new one per day.

Why this approach?

Most people who have dated online know that a lot of other people like to send the same cookie-cutter, thoughtless message to every single they see on the site. The result is an inbox filled with low-effort messages from singles who might not even be interested in you, or your quality message gets lost in the clutter of low-effort messages. With Higher Bond’s one conversation per day approach, careful consideration has to be put into choosing the match that you’re the most interested in.

The result? Online dating stops being a numbers game and starts being a meaningful means of meeting someone special.

Guided First Messages

The first message you send to someone on Higher Bond is a series of four questions known as a guided first message.

After your message is sent, the recipient has the option to accept or pass on continuing the conversation. Once they click accept, the conversation goes to a normal chat/email format.

The four questions are:

  • Tell them your name and introduce yourself!
  • Let them know what you like about them.
  • Share something interesting about yourself.
  • Ask them an interesting question!

Why this approach?

One of the biggest complaints in online dating is the quality of first messages. “hey” and “sup” can only go so far. Sometimes these messages are a result of a low-effort approach to dating, but sometimes it’s just because writing a first message is hard! With our simple guided first messages, you’ll send a first message that introduces you, let’s them know what you like about them, and gives them an easy way to respond!

Free Members Can Always Respond

At Higher Bond, free members can ALWAYS respond to messages from Premium Users.

Why this approach?

At most online dating sites, you can only respond to a message from a premium user if you’re also a premium user. While this seems like a bummer for free members, it’s a worse situation for premium users. At most online dating sites, only about 10% of the users are premium users. That means if you send out 10 amazing messages, statistically only 1 of those people even has the ability to respond to you! If they’re not interested, you’re not going to get a single response back.

However, with Higher Bond, 100% of the people you send a new message to will have the ability to respond for free.
