User Reviews for Upward: Christian Dating App

Great app! Finally!

I love this app. It’s like a Christian version of Tinder. Mostly everyone here are looking for relationships & have a end game for marriage. The women seem really faith driven and traditional which I like, I haven’t gotten any matches yet because it’s my first day. But already liking the bios, and vibe from a lot of women on here. I have even seen girls that are from Tinder on here, but their bios are more in debt and they actually write something and explain what they are looking for as if maybe Tinder they just made it in hopes of finding something special other than guys who just wanted one night stands. Here those same girls are a lot more open. Unfortunately their aren’t many Christian women left in our society so there not a lot to choose from in most local areas your range runs out pretty quick. So if your ok with making a connection and feeling like it’s worth to travel to make such a great connection to meet someone if you have too. It’s not that bad of an app. I live in Arizona and it’s a party town would love to see a travel mode to see some women back in my hometown since I travel their often as well. Other than that great app for anyone who wants God at the center of their relationship. Can’t watch to see it grow. They should most definitely be promoting this in the church communities.

Badly needs distance, height, and education filters.

I wanted to like this app because dating as a Christian woman in your late twenties is hard y’all. Unfortunately, this app does not do it for me. I bought the premium version thinking it would have more features and save me time, but all of the important filters for me (distance, height, education) aren’t options! The app shows you people who are 150 miles away without letting you filter down the distance. How is that practically supposed to work? Also I don’t care who thinks it’s shallow, height is incredibly important! I’m 5’11” and it is uncomfortable for me to date someone who is shorter than me, and it’s uncomfortable for them too! If God wanted me to marry a short man, he would have made me a short woman! I put my height in my bio so that men can know how tall I am, but this really should be a filter because no one needs to waste their time flipping through profiles of people they are physically incompatible with or guessing how tall they are. Finally, being able to filter for education is also incredibly important! This goes back to basic compatibility, people with similar education levels are more compatible. Yes it’s possible to guess someone’s intelligence from their profile, but please save us time and improve your app by making this a filter. Why does this app have such high ratings? Who is this even working for???

Meh……Nuff said

Okay as a woman using this app I guess there are some positives and negatives. I tried this app for exactly 2 days and at first it was fun and exciting seeing the likes and watching them add up but I guess it depends on what kind of person you are. I’m the type where if I already know someone likes me I’m more willing to invest time into that, but I couldn’t see anyone who liked me and that became frustrating after the first couple days when you have like 100+ likes but barely any matches. Lol. It’s not even that I swipe left on someone because they are unattractive but you just don’t know who would be into you and I guess that’s something they could consider fixing. I also agree with another reviewer in that when you do get matches, many people ghost after…due to browsing and “shopping” to see more matches. In this way I feel as though it’s a bit tricky to truly find someone who isn’t consistently browsing for more matches. Or the person is just not taking it seriously. It’s like it becomes a habit that many can’t stop and no true matches follow through to go on into anything deeper beyond “How are you?” I do believe there are some real people on there looking for something but personally it’s too hard to find them and I would rather let God do his work without me trying to force it. It’s not for everyone, but when it works (IF IT WORKS) it can really lead to great things I guess.

Needs User Verification

I really want to love this app as the interface is really good and I’ve had some decent conversations with some girls on it. But this app REALLY needs some sort of user verification. The last match I got seemed really great at first. I gave her my number so we could talk easier. We seemed to have a lot in common and our conversation was really nice and everything seemed normal; at least, it did at first. All of a sudden, she sent me a completely unsolicited inappropriate photo of herself and later on, I got a phone call from her number, but it was a male voice on the other end of the call and he claimed he was her father and that his daughter is only 16 years old and that he was going to the police and would file criminal charges against me for child porn and solicitation of a minor. I now know it was a scam and the girl I thought I was talking to probably never existed and this person was just trying to scare me into sending money to avoid getting into some serious trouble. This really freaked me out, but luckily I just blocked the number and nothing more came from this horrible situation. But this was still an absolutely terrible situation and there really should be some sort of user verification to avoid this sort of thing. Please just fix this problem before someone really gets hurt and this app would be sooo much better.

Mixed feelings tbh. Love and dislike it

I downloaded this during quarantine. Things ive noticed you can’t see who likes you unless you match. I wish there was a way to see who liked me. There may be people i skipped over or never saw there. I have matches but people barely message on there. So its a little discouraging maybe offer a video chat feature. Also i noticed that there are people on there that aren’t even Christian. It’s literally a Christian dating app. People are “ spiritual “ that don’t even consider themselves Christian... that’s weird to me. I would think on a Christian Dating app that people are actually doing on there to date not be casual. I’ve noticed some people are on there looking to get there freak on... like go on tinder or something. Sorry I’m sure the creators of the app have great intentions. I wish there was a way to be selective on the app i never know where people i match with are from. I’m african american and a women and barely see any men that are black. I don’t discriminate i love em all... but it would be nice to be shown some people like me. Most of the people i see are hunters, fishermen etc😭i love jesus but man im getting discouraged with who i see. To sum all that up Can there be a paid maybe 2.99 feature to see who liked you😫?please

great app for putting yourself out there!!

I downloaded this app, matched with a few guys, and dated a guy I met on here for a month! Even though it didn’t end up working out, I was really impressed to meet such a godly man on a dating app!! As with any dating app, be cautious with profiles and meeting up (let other people know where you are even if you’re a hermit and don’t tell people where you’re usually going like me😂). But anyway, a friend told me I should give this app a rating so here I am! If you’re looking to put yourself out there and potentially meet someone who loves Jesus, this app could be for you! It didn’t work out for me, but hey, I am thankful to have known the guy for even a short while! We both were blessed by each other, but I knew I needed to end the pursuit of the relationship when I felt like God was not leading us together. With that, I leave a message to the ladies that I needed to hear too: BE HONEST. Tell the guy where you’re at, even if he seems like he’s head over heals for you and you’re not quite there. HOLD EACH OTHER WITH OPEN HANDS. Let the Lord lead you!!! SEEK THE LORD. Ask Him to show you His will regarding the guy in your life. If God directs away from him, don’t drag the guy on. Communicate, end well, and say farewell. Anyway, maybe someone needs to hear this advice and maybe someone just needs to hear part of it. Blessings on you as you hold your desire for a relationship before the Lord!!

Could be better

It’s a great app but could better Ive several issues regarding my subscriptions I’ve paid for not reflecting in the app. Such as my elite membership that I purchased 2 maybe 3 different times this month as well as the several premium memberships none of which bare giving me access to those level features. I’ve messaged him them several times asking if they could fix that or refund my money and they never email me back. I emailed them Friday and they said they would get back with me and never did, I even wrote a review yesterday and it didn’t get posted. 2. A i had to create a new account after my phone number changed because of their system signing me out and making me type in my number which had been changed so it made me create a new account. So that may be part of the issue. So upward needs a different sign in method because folks change their numbers all the time and shouldn’t have to create a new account or not be able to access features because they worried about fraud. It’s the same IP address and name on the account and debit cards it’s not fraud I’d like the money back I’ve spent on both accounts this month especially seeing as though my old account I lost access to it 2 days after I paid the elite membership and the premium. How can this be fixed or I’ll just delete my account and tell my friends not to join here.

Notifications are driving me nuts

I’ll be honest I have not had a great on this app, some of it is my own stuff, but the app notification have been driving me nuts. I personally don’t have a ton of apps I let give me notifications anymore, but I let this one because I want to be able to get notifications for messages. I don’t have any social media so this app is the only way to communicate unless we exchange phone numbers, which I don’t always feel comfortable. I know other people don’t right away either. I get a notification to start swiping seemingly every few hours. I understand that this is how these apps work, but it’s a little annoying. I decided to pay for 3 months of premium so I could see who the likes are coming from. It seems to me like they push your profile to get a bunch of likes prior to paying for premium or whatever to see who it is. As soon as I payed for the app the likes went down to one every week or so. I might not be the kind of person that gets a lot of likes anyways but it was weird it went from 8 in the first week, then down to maybe 1 a week after I payed.The thing that drives me the most nuts is what I can only call the phantom like. It’s only happened 2 or 3 times since I started using the app. The app notifies me I got a like, but when I go to the app to check out the profile there isn’t a like. It’s great way to get me to open the app, but whatever. Idk, if it’s a glitch or what, but seems kinda fishy to me.

Got my hopes up… Another disappointment

I’ve been on this app less than a day. I’ll come back later to write an updated review. So , far, however, it looks like all of the negative reviews are correct, unfortunately. This app is full of bots and shady profiles. In less than 24 hours I’ve had three matches. One was obviously a bot, one I haven’t reached out to yet, and one asked me to meet almost immediately (which is fine), but he insisted that I go to his place for the first meeting and unmatched when I suggested a public meeting first. I think that was a real person but I got a very bad vibe out of it, like there may have been something worse going on there that could seriously jeopardize someone’s safety. Be very cautious when using this app, even more so than you would any of the rest of them. I think I’ve figured out how to spot these fake profiles (their “faith” section is very vague, for one), so we’ll see.That said, as a Christian/Conservative in a Leftist city, it’s a nightmare trying to find a match on the mainstream dating apps like Bumble, Hinge, etc. I swipe right maybe 1 out of 500 times because most of the people on those apps are the Atheist/Liberal types or they are looking for hookups and polyamory. I’ll try this app out a little while longer, but am very disappointed. They just need to add a way to verify profiles.

I found my husband on this app!

I usually don’t write reviews but this app is the exception! I had tried different apps hoping to find my “one” to no avail. I had just about given up hope when I came across this app. I decided to give it another shot as this was a Christian app and I had never been on one before. Not even a week in I matched with this guy an hour away from me. We hit it off immediately and facetimed almost every day. He told me his cousin convinced him to get the app as he bad never tried online dating before. (Thank goodness he did!) On our first date we both had that “God moment” where a voice in our heads both told us “they’re the one” loud and clear. We continued dating and, a few months later, he proposed! Fast forward to almost a year from when we first met: we said “I do” in my childhood church. We have no doubt that God used this app to bring us together. We have been married for almost 6 months now and continue to have a blast every day. He is truly my best friend and I cannot thank the Lord or Upward enough for sending me the man of my dreams! We are so grateful for you and cannot wait to continue our journey together! -The Smiths.
