So when Christian Mingle asked me to fill out what I thought being a Christian means in my bio, I immediately thought of Christmas and filled that in.
I didn’t think I’d have much luck on a site that asked me for my favorite Bible passage.
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.
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.
After a disappointing few weeks on Christian Mingle, I was desperate for someone to talk to me.
Also strange: if members didn’t fill out their height and weight, their profile would be deleted — weird, since most people are going to lie anyway.
