@daveweigel: Also, I have a shorter conservative dating seminar. "Go to church." Done.Exactly right. There's a lot of truth in that.
I'm no expert on dating, but as a guy who is rapidly approaching his 25th wedding anniversary I'd like to think I know something about finding the right mate. I met my wife in church, and I know many, many others who did the same thing. If you want to find someone who has similar values to yours and who is more likely to be compatible, are you more likely to find that person at some mixer in a bar or in a Bible study in your church?
If you're single and looking, try it.
