So, my series isn’t over, but until I have a chance to finish another post in the series, I need some advice.
Like I mentioned in an early post, I have re-entered the world of dating, and I’m currently signed up for a couple of on-line dating sites. I just recently signed up for match.com, and I’m currently facing a small dilemma.
Match.com gives you the option of sharing your religious background in your online profile, and I’m not sure what to do. I’m a big fan of being honest, and I have no intention of hiding my religious beliefs from anyone I start to date. I intend to tell anyone I date about my religious background. But I’m not sure what to do about my profile. When people are looking at on-line profiles, they often look for reasons to narrow down their options, and I’m afraid that men I might be compatible with will not consider going on an initial date with me because of preconceived notions/stereotypes, etc. (Mormonism is still not a mainstream religion.)
At the same time, my religious beliefs will definitely come up if I start dating someone, and I don’t want to seem dishonest by not disclosing my religious background in my profile. Any thoughts on what I should do?
Note: Post edited for clarity.
