But talking to her about it kind of got me thinking.
Also, the demographics favor Mormon men so strongly that it almost seems rude for a Mormon man to date a non-Mormon woman.
It’s like something I read once in a newspaper article about the Tall Club of Chicago.
They interviewed one of the women in the club, who commented how they can’t help but view it as such a “waste” (her word) when they see a tall man going out with a short woman.
The last time I saw my daughter, she told me that she had decided to be more proactive about meeting people.
She had signed up for a (free) online dating service, and had recently gone out with four different guys.
None of them was a hit, but the evenings were pleasant enough and she felt good about actually trying and putting herself out there. I called her just a couple of days ago to make Memorial Day plans, and in the course of that conversation I asked her how the online dating experiment was coming.
And she casually mentioned that she’s actually seeing someone now.
The guy is a high school science teacher, which was a major plus in my book.
(As a boy I was a science geek and always close to the science teachers, who were uniformly terrific.) Also, he’s got a thing for cult films, and I had to laugh out loud, because that is one of my daughter’s passions as well, so in that respect at least they seem well matched.
They just started dating, but still, I was again proud of her for being proactive about it and getting out there and making an effort, which appears to have led to some promising initial traction.
She is no longer in the Church, so religion is not a major consideration for her.
