Although in a sense you are advertising yourself in a profile, people aren't as uncomplicated as a product on a shelf. If I choose the available setting of non-religious, I think a sensible person, who practises any specific religion, would find that enough information to realize we wouldn't be a good fit. Bringing it up again in the body of my profile would seem redundant to me. It sends a vibe that doesn't fit with what I'm trying to attract. I feel it make things less clear and opens the door to misinterpretation because people, being people, have their own judgements, filters etc.

I have never once been contacted by a practising, religious person and so I think choosing the "non-religious" option has made things very clear in this area. On the very odd chance a religious person might contact me anyway, I could quickly explain my perspective and wouldn't mind. It's just part of on-line dating... not really that big of an inconvenience for either party.

Did you know that a sloth's metabolism is so slow that it only Drops a Deuce once every three weeks? Fascinating!

I have never imagined loneliness could lead a human being in his 60s to be a dog with 2-4 years kid IQ. I wonder if someone with this poor mental incapacity, how did he raise his kids? Poor kids.

Another stalker, tries to grab my attention by all means. Once, by speaking nicely, another time being mean, she even posted in Arabic to grab my attention. Here is a clear statement for everyone, even if she converted to Islam, I am not interested. The reason is Humans cannot marry dogs.

Any woman with a little bit of IQ, will never try to contact a man told her that, or post in this thread again, except a psycho stalker woman that is extremely mentally ill.

Making everyone happy is a wish, cannot occur realistically. Therefore, we have to do the correct thing no matter what.

Being non-religious doesn't implying you cannot date religious men. You can be non-smoker, and date smoker men. A nice simple sentence in the profile will mean a lot. However, if a man is too dump to get it, you must block him immediately if he contacts you. For example, I get along well better with non-religious white men. What do you think?

OMG...I LOVE Sloths!

They're excellent swimmers, they only take 5 seconds to have sex,
and they only poop once a week. Pooping is when most of them meet
their death, however. Because they come down from their tree and
always poop in the same place..opens them up to predators.

They look like they're always smiling and they turn green because of
algae. What's not to like about a sloth?

A nice simple sentence could also mean a lot of the wrong things as well, depending on how it's interpreted.
I think the sample you gave wouldn't be true to me. " I get along well better with non-religious white men"... this also states I'd get along better with white men, which isn't true in my case as I would date interracially. While I don't wish to make a life with a practising religious person, I do get along with religious people and so again, this isn't clear and can be misinterpreted. Simply stating non-religious hasn't even once created any confusion. More importantly to me, than that possibly slight risk of a contact from a religious person, is to not present myself in way that isn't comfortable for me.

I know some reactions to a rejection can be strong, but I'm ok dealing with that. I've never felt the need to block anyone. As you said, you can't keep everyone happy...but the "correct" or right thing is to have a profile that I feel fits me best. My profile is honest and I feel actually much clearer this way, as no unnecessary confusion can be created.

I respect your opinion. However, being a clear honest person, avoid the risk.

FYI, some Muslims are non-religious, some Christians are agnostics, and some Jews are atheists. Thus, having a religion in your profile, does not mean you practice.

I gave you a metaphor example, in which you can rephrase it, by any way that makes sense for you.
Frankly, some women state they prefer men between certain ages, and that is nice of them. Really, I am not sure how a sentence like, " I prefer dating non-religious men" could be misinterpreted as discrimination, or gotten bad reactions.

I guess us lionesses scared away the dog.

Or maybe he's going to try to sue POF for letting too many blocks delete him. Will he cry 'religious discrimination', I wonder?

For what it's worth, this lioness didn't bother to block him.

Damn it, he is gone! That lion sure went out with a wimper. Does this mean I don't get to hear the vocalizing stylings of the sloth?

U2fo , speaking of wildlife, it's entirely possible he's been a busy beaver, harassing women he's been messaging. He was a pretty angry dude.

Twelve years later and finally................ POOF! I can't imagine why a person would stick around on an OLD site, for 12 years, 12 whole years!!!!! for someone who did not use online dating! Right? Did I misunderstand what the OP wrote? ...........

"However, if a man is too dump to get it, you must block him immediately if he contacts you.............

I'm going to "Meet a Sloth", at a local (Ottawa) arena tomorrow. Gonna see if I can stuff one in my jacket and smuggle him out...

Well, they don't fart -- the gases from their digestion are absorbed into their blood, and expelled via their lungs. So, they have Perma-Halitosis.

Too bad they don't fart. I imagine a sloth fart would be a long, drawn-out, mellow affair.

Dogs are not of low honor

(overunity) Here we have a Muslim OP calling non Muslims "dogs".

The same Muslims that are taught to lie by the Quran, etc.
Their lying is called "Taqiyya" and easily found by searching that word or "Muslim lying".

From the internet:

"Muslims lie when it is in their interest to do so and “Allah” will not hold them accountable for lying when it is beneficial to the cause of Islam. They can lie without any guilt or fear of accountability or retribution. A lie in the defense of Islam is approved even applauded in their “holy” books."


I may be reading you wrong, but it sounds like you're saying that lying for the religion is a uniquely muslim phenomenon?

I think Islam is the only religion that explicitly permits lying.
Only so long as it's for the benefit of the religion.

I supposed, in other religions, you have to look harder for justification.

* They only poop every 10-21 days, resulting in a spectacularly huge brick. In fact, a sloth can lose up to 1/3 of its body weight from a good dump.
* Sloths are so sluggish because only ~25% of their body mass (presumably, pre-poop) is muscle; most mammals are ~50%.

(*shrug*) So, how is not being upfront about lying (which is what you seem to be implying that non-muslims do) any less objectionable?

Lying is lying. It's not graded on a curve.


(2ufo) Only so long as it's for the benefit of the religion.


Which is an incredibly subjective thing to say; let alone, a concept to embrace.


(2ufo) I supposed, in other religions, you have to look harder for justification.


No, you don't. You just need to get rid of a christain-centric worldview, and realize that "lying for the Lord" is a trait common to *ALL* Abrahamic religions.

Everyone wants the glory of being told that I agree with them; however, you only get that warm-n-fuzzy feeling of having Uncle Arlo agree with you, thus confirming that you are, indeed, right, if/when you actually *ARE* right.

As I can't figure out what you're actually saying, 2flyingsaucer, I have to withhold your gold star.

I understand preferences and to circumvent those that don't fit a certain criteria as long as it's stated in a respectful way. People are entitled to their preferences and it can save those from wasting any energy.

I don't like thugs, guys that sag, braids, gold teeth and those that fit that whole category, so when I started getting some messages from those that looked that part - I opted to preface it. Some took offense, but they typically were the ones that I was speaking to that I did NOT want to hear from.

OLD entails being specific about what you like, want and even asking initial questions that will help one assess if they fit your criteria - some don't, some do, but compatibility is important.

A good way of explaining what the exclusionary criteria is, is to state what it is one is looking for, in enough detail that such because the exclusionary criteria but in a positive manner.

Now, when pressed for space (like tinder/bumble/etc), then you have a choice to either communicate or not. I have for example, and arrow pointing to the left for dildo auditions (aka hookups), fetishes, Trump supporters, pen pals
