Can't we just embrace the mystery of life, simply be good and hope for the best? My Christian boyfriend jokingly calls me an imp -- and I call him a fruitcake.
"It helped me to reflect on what I wanted my life to really be about, who I wanted to be with and how to raise any future children." Of course, there are many dating sites that are not primarily religious but allow customers to indicate religious preference –- or the preference of no religion at all.
In the world of online dating, religious sites indicate a classic belief among some love seekers that faith matters and that God is the ultimate matchmaker.
“God has a match for you," claims a major Christian dating site called Christian Mingle.
Rob met his wife on J-date, but, as he explains, when he met her he was in for a surprise: “She described herself in her bio as 'not really Jewish' and I thought she was just like me -- a guy who like's Jewish things, bagels, Woody Allen movies, etc.
My jaw dropped on the first date when she told me she was Catholic.
As love seekers fill out their profile revealing their denomination and frequency of church attendance, it is clear that the underlying assumption of the site is that the right match is another Christian.
