Spirit dating website
I tested my two-sentence bio on friends to make sure I sounded adorable, approachable and culturally Jewish enough to be on the site. I got lots of matches on JSwipe (Bubby would be so proud!
), so to narrow down the prospects, I stuck to the important issues.
As much as I had hoped to celebrate Christmas one day, a month to flirt behind a screen was a bit steep.
My friend Kelsey commented that it might be because religious Christians (at least the ones we knew) get married young, and there wasn’t anyone older.
It turned out our stereotypes were wrong and that the problem was that my settings were on the 18- to 23-year-old filer.
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.
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.
So I spent a month on JSwipe, dharma Match, Atheist Passions and Christian Mingle.I did not meet the religious (or spiritual, or atheist) man of my dreams, but I did laugh — a lot.And I scored one late-night invitation to come over to someone’s house in my pajamas, which I declined. It sucks to be one of the only kids in your elementary school not getting a visit from Santa, and it still sucks as an adult.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.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
