Dating and different religions
And yes, I have clients who value religion above all, and demand that a partner feel the same.
These are all arbitrary deal-breakers, which often serve to keep these people alone for a really long time.
Have you ever dated someone who was really religious and he/she chose religion over you?
We don’t agree on anything spiritual, so we don’t even discuss it.
Some people (including some industrious person who sent me an anonymous copy of , and another who compared me to Hitler) get really bent out of shape about this – as if I was saying that religion doesn’t matter. Religion absolutely matters – if you make it matter.
Loving dogs absolutely matters – if you make it matter.
I used an example of a Jewish woman who wanted to marry Jewish (which is normal), but also wanted to insist that her man be an animal activist as well.
And if she simply multiplied the odds of those two deal-breakers (2% of the population is Jewish; .1% might be considered male animal activists), she’s essentially declaring that only .002% of the population is even DATEABLE.
