A reader of this site has a dilemma.
He just posted a profile on Match.com. Part of his profile states that he’s an atheist. Right away, this is like kryptonite to a lot of potential dates who may not know what that means but see “atheist” as a dirty word.
If we were in a face-to-face setting I could explain it to them more easily based upon their feedback/reactions. I don’t have that opportunity on an opening or second email reply.
One girl has already written to him. She says she’s never dated an atheist before, but it might be ok… you know, if he’s not into devil worship.
We need to clear up stereotypes and offer some advice to those people who *might* want to date an atheist but don’t have a clear impression of what an “atheist” is.
What advice do you have for those people?
There are probably many readers who have dated someone who knew next to nothing about atheism. What stereotypes did you have to correct?
Answer wisely! A potential love life hangs in the balance.
