Recently, a friend who recently registered with a Christian dating site, gave me her password and asked me to log into her account and give some honest feedback on her profile. She said I could also read her messages if I wanted to....and I was simply blown away by how RUDE some people are!
The friend in question is involved with 2 churches - one in her local community (which she feels is important) but because it's not exactly spiritually 'bouncy', and she commutes a long way into work, she also goes to another one mid-week by her office, which allows her to get spiritually fed....which in turn, gives her the strength to continue giving support to the church in her community. No big deal, right?
Her first message on the site is from a man who says that because she goes to two churches, they will not be 'spiritually compatible' as he finds this inconsistent with scripture (riiiiggghhhhtt!). The next man emails her to say 'hi' and then suggests that from her pictures, she might want to start styling her hair in a different way, as he thinks she'd look MUCH more attractive that way.
Better still....was the message from a guy commenting on her picture of her in a marathon, suggesting that women runners may in fact just be lesbians.
And so it goes on! No wonder the poor girl is feeling hammered and useless and pretty much unattractive to her core. What is wrong with people? Sorry people....I had no idea that online dating could be so vile and unpleasant!
