Celibacy online dating

I’m in San Francisco, and I rarely even received matches from within California!

EDIT: I just deleted an anecdote from my experience at christiancafe that would no doubt hurt the feelings of the guy who is the subject of the tale.

If it sounds like I have just had a bad experience on lonely.suckers.com*, then you’re right. millions can no doubt be made.) The sad truth is, it wasn’t even the worst experience I have ever had using my computer to find a future… It’s just that when I recently gave online dating another try, enough time had passed that I forgotten what a stinking cesspool it can be.

But to be serious, I realized that the key problem that haunts all but the Kens and Barbies amongst us are the photos which accompany a person’s online profile. At least wait until after I meet you to find out you’re a Neanderthal.

But feeling how I do about celibacy before marriage, sites like match.com, where you can select something meaningless such as “Spiritual, But Not Religious,” as your “religion” had become out of the question.

The only problem with christiancafe – and it’s a big one – is that those folks must have an advertising budget of zero.

And it’s not even that most people are not photogenic, though that’s a given. Please show me that you: 1) Have enough social skills and/or friends that you can convince someone to take your picture -and- 2) You occasionally get up from your computer and leave the house. The real problem, however, with conducting an online search on these dating sites and receiving a list of profile photos is this: the worst possible way to judge someone that is by his or her appearance*, and that’s exactly what we’re doing by selecting someone through an online dating site.

But if any guy happens to be reading this, I gotta tell you: I never, ever open a profile where the photo features a guy taking a picture of himself in the bathroom, and you can see his reflection in the mirror, holding the camera. (*Unless, that is, a person’s appearance reveals a lack of attention to basic hygiene. ) Okay, I’m going to get specific here, and just trust that the benefit of having an obscure blog means that I can talk about people I know (except my boss: never a good idea) and they’ll be none the wiser.

tries online dating is that they know of heard of “someone” who has meet “someone” online.

I submit to you the following: WE ARE ALL TALKING ABOUT THE SAME COUPLE (who just happen to have a wide circle of friends).

Thus, few have heard of it, and therefore there simply aren’t enough users.
