In Good Company
After a couple of months of vacation from EP, I returned to find a very prominent ad on EP several times for ChristianMingle.com. It isn't the picture above; I just offer that for illustrative purposes and to catch the attention of anyone happening across this EP story. It does seem to work.
I know that EP supporters don't see the ChristianMingle.com ad, but I am admittedly cheap and hesitant to pay for any online service. Anyway, this particular ad has the headline in bold letters "Jesus Christ is Lord" over a picture of a very attractive blonde woman in her 20s wearing fairly tight clothing and with her hands on her hips. All other text, including that the service is ChristianMingle.com is much less prominent. So, this caught my eye, and, although I'm not here for dating, I was curious.
It turned out that I was an acceptable prospect, but ChristianMingle.com was slightly uncomfortable with my polite insistence on being accompanied by my Legion of the Undead on any encounters and to any Mingle events. Where I go, they go. Yes, I feel a bit rejected, and this is perhaps one reason I am skeptical about subscribing to online services.
