If someone should happen to come upon your profile and comment on it, you can just say, “Oh, dating is so hard nowadays.Dear Single Pastor, Welcome to my world, and the world of thousands of other men and women who are trying to serve God, church and family while still holding out hope for romance! I won’t say much more about it except to say that IF a member of your congregation sends strong “I’m interested” signals and you’re interested in him/her, you should assume that one of you should leave the congregation if there is to be a dating relationship. Some of us have given up on romance and are just seeking companionship, or maybe just someone to go see “Hairspray” with.
