LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2013) - ChristianMingle®.com, the largest and fastest growing online community for Christian singles, today announced a partnership with Mandy Hale, internationally-known blogger and author of "The Single Woman: Life, Love, & a Dash of Sass." ChristianMingle and Hale are collaborating to document Hale's experiences on ChristianMingle.com as she takes her first shot at online dating.

Hale empowers single women to celebrate their singlehood and settle for nothing less than the best through her message, which reaches nearly one million women across the world every day. Now, the tables will turn as Hale pursues her own Christ-centered relationship by joining ChristianMingle.com.

"As a faith-driven, single woman, it is my passion to encourage singles to live bold, courageous lives," said Hale. "Much of this journey is about having confidence in God's plan, so I'm eager to share my philosophies on life and love with the Christian community as I experience online dating for the first time on ChristianMingle.com."

Throughout her journey, Hale will share her online dating adventures with fans on her website, The Single Woman™. She will also be a featured bi-weekly contributor on the newly re-launched Believe.com®, delivering exclusive content centered on love, dating and relationships to the Christian community.
