    I will refrain from soap boxing on my utter disdain for anything that talks about “God’s match” for us. Only in the last 150 years or so did anyone even have a choice in who they married. Most of the world still doesn’t do that.

    They should just say the truth: Are you lonely? Do you think all the single men or women at your church are ugly and weird? Sign up for Christian mingle and click on the most attractive person you find. Hopefully they won’t think you are ugly and weird.

    But let’s not bring God into this. please.

    What the chimes?? This is theologically special.

    It’s 90s soap opera music!

    “You’ve got male!”

    I met my wife on this site.

    JK!

    My mother apparently gave it a thumbs up when she learned how to copy and paste weblinks for the first time ever when emailing it to me.

    i think the “chime” might be the subtle implication of a biological alarm clock. You’ve got to love subliminal messages in advertising.

    Although I confess to this: http://thatsajennstory.wordpress.com/2011/05/19/matchmaking/ (on the blog of someone I don’t even know, no less . . . maybe that’s why . . . ), I will also say from experience that the quality of the above-mocked site is about par with the quality of that ad. JBen–some of us wish we were still in a culture where we DIDN’T have a choice . . . Sort of, anyway. Except for how many opinions I have . . .

  9. wha?!?!?!

    Are Amanda and Andrew in high school? Yes, probably.

    I have a confession to make (though fortunately this post was long enough ago that maybe no one but Sharideth will read it). I actually met someone on Christian Mingle in June, and I am still dating him. We’re not engaged yet or anything, but it’s getting serious. So . . . you never know. God uses the foolish things . . .
