Christian men dating non christian
Once I put all my personal information out there for the single atheists of the world to judge, I went to find someone to chat with.
But there were only five members online, including me and the lone active man with a creepy photo.
The interface of the app is SO much easier to use than dharma Match, Christian Mingle and Atheist Passions.
It’s Tinder-like, with some swiping and no payment (insert your cheap-Jew stereotype here).
I didn’t have one, so I chose the Old Testament instead. ) My Christian friends informed me that choosing a whole book wasn’t technically a passage, and that I could go with a popular section like “Love is patient, love is kind,” but that brought back too many memories of a dying Mandy Moore in .
I chose a profile photo of myself in a Santa onesie. It got approved, as did all my other conservatively dressed photos.
I tried “smiling” at a bunch of men, hoping that if they forked over the money, they could talk to me. Then I smiled back whenever I received a smile, hoping that there was a loophole (like two smiles = a free introduction).I made my opening line “On your latkes: sour cream or applesauce?” (Note to suitors: applesauce is the correct answer; sour cream is gross.)I was also intrigued by Adam, who told me he was a singer and sent along a link to his new album. Things must have gotten a little TOO sexy in the past, because Atheist Passions had a lot of rules about photos.The subject line “Don’t take a first date too seriously” seemed peculiar, given that the people in that picture look to be taking their date very seriously.
Anyway, I wish I could have taken a first date not too seriously, but since I couldn’t do much beyond “smile” at anyone, I never scored. I want to preface that the feelings I have about JSwipe are not just because I’m Jewish.
usually describe my religion as “Jewish, heavy on the –ish.” (Read: I will not go to services or fast on Yom Kippur, but I will swing by your breaking-the-fast party and bring some schmear.)But during a dating dry spell that’s longer (and dryer) than Moses’s 40 days of wandering in the desert, I agreed when asked me to check out some popular religious dating apps and sites.
