But for now — let me take you right back to the start. And for me it starts with the search of God.

There were plenty more from those who clearly weren't a good match — guys in the 50 plus age bracket, guys who lived in Australia, guys who were saving their first kiss for marriage. At least Public Praying Man made it to the dating stage — but his penchant for saying grace out loud made me feel, as many of the men's profiles did, that I wasn't Christian enough to go out with a Christian.
