Fusion UK Christian dating site
Hello, I'm Edward and I designed fusion101 Free Christian Singles in 1998 as I had a passion to make it easier for single Christians to find their husband or wife - having seen the exasperation my Christian friends and experienced myself the difficulties of meeting people at church. Below is a brief outline of our story.
Fusion started life serving mainly UK Christians
Fusion101 - now called '101 free Christian dating service' has always been open to Christians around the world internationally and mainly focused on helping singles, but was also open to any Christians looking for friendship and fellowship (we have since changed it to focus just on singles as it was a little confusing and to that end we now have a separate - 101 Christian social network).
So whilst 'Fusion101' as it was originally called, started humbly from my parents garage as a British based website and mainly catered for UK single Christians - indeed our first members were from the UK, we quickly gained 1000's members from the US, Canada and just about every country globally.
Even further back in time...
I originally envisaged fusion as a 'portal' - an exciting buzz-word at the time which is basicly a glorified term for a do-everything website where Christians coud not only find other singles for arranging dates, but a virtual meeting place where Christians could find world news, life advice, articles, Christian organisations to support, and a host of other services. I had in my mind that the entire thing would function as a kind of 'charity' and fund all kinds of worthy needs and causes - Christian and otherwise! I think using the web to fund causes was quite a new idea back then at the end of 1998. Now it's called 'crowd-funding.' Looking back I am somewhat embarrassed at my over-ambitiousness - if I'd known the problems I would encounter along the way I would probably have never started, but glad I did when I see the Christians we have brought together:)
Two goals in one!
I quickly realized that with no money, no web knowlede and no members - I couldn't create my 'charirty' without some kind of membership base. At the same time I thought that perhaps my main goal - to help single Christians meet, could be the answer to that, and I could use this service as the springboard to hit my two targets with one arrow.
101 Fusion dating for Christians was designed in late 1998 and launched in 2000 as one of the first, totally genuine Christian singles services. It featured lots of other sites and services for Christians in general. Fusion101, unlike most Christian singles web sites had one major advantage over its competitors; I was determined from the start to offer the best free Christian dating service there was and has to that end been succesful!
By 2005 it was ranked one of the busiest sites on the Internet (59,000 on Alexa) and also now has the largest UK Christian singles database - but with a total of over 270,000 members worldwide from all continents inclusing USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South America, South Africa etc. Whilst most free dating and singles sites suffer (as a consequesnce of being free - ie lack of resources and manpower) 101 has managed to do the impossible and keep its membership 98% free from time wasters and spammers - something we found by testing them, makes most free dating site we tested useless. Interenet scammers and spammers target free sites and services!
We hope you enjoy our free Christians singles services (please read a few of our real marraige introductions testimonials at the top of this page). God bless you - Edward.
