Terms and Conditions

This service is for Christian single adults only (you must be at least 18 years old) who are seriously interested in a marriage relationship.  This is NOT a site for casual dating or quick hookups.  We believe in the courting model where there is a serious desire for a man and a woman to focus on a relationship that ends in marriage.  Please note that when we use the term "dating", it is synonymous with courting and the courting model for marriage.  

Additionally, this site has been designed for Reformed Christian singles who adhere to the following Confessionals and Creeds: the Westminster Confession, the 1st London Baptist Confession 1644/1646, the 2nd London Baptist Confession 1689, the Philadelphia Confession, the New Hampshire Confession, and the Three Forms of Unity (Belgic Confession, Canons of Dort, Heidelberg Catechism). Since this is not an exhaustive list of Reformed Confessionals, we welcome any professing Reformed Christian single and while we are predominately comprised of Reformed Christians, all professing Protestant Christians are welcome if they agree to the Statement of Faith.


The TulipSingles.com Singles service (Social Portal) is a way for Reformed Christian single adults to meet each other online.
