But really, are these sites serving up better dating prospects for spirit-oriented folks? I once had an introductory telephone call with a man whom I was matched with through a high-priced service. We were chatting, in that nervous small talk way perfect strangers do, and then he exuberently described to me how much he loved being part of his church. While I am fascinated by folks who are immersed in other realms and even channel other beings, I also have a practical streak. Some of the nicest datable folks I know are simply dependable, humble, grounded, generous and kind and you'd want them there when life gets challenging. I stopped him kindly, and said that I don't relate to the church at all and I heard a sharp intake of breath. So I wonder if instead of spiritual dating, we think about attracting someone who's growth focused, with a capacity for change. Have you ever met someone who talks the self growth talk, but doesn't walk the walk? At first, I'm delighted that they are ‘spiritual’ or ‘open-minded’ or ‘curious’. While I don't need someone to believe exactly what I do, I do need someone who respects my choices, plus has asked his own questions, or is in the process of doing so. There are things like beliefs and points of view that are a part of your nature and cannot be sacrificed, you either accept the person the way he or she is, or you just never be together.We should not change disregard our beliefs, but to look for a person who will share the same ideas, or will be fine with the things you like and appreciate.Someone who is growth-oriented and who has the capacity to weather the storms that life brings to grow separately and together.
The important thing for any kind of relationships is to accept people as they are.

We want someone who ‘gets’ us and someone we can deeply relate to as well. He was a very nice man and we both agreed we weren't a good match and that each of us would give feedback to the owners of the service. I have many friends with slightly different takes on life. I learn what they're really all about — by the indicator that speaks loudest of all: their behaviour. Most soulmate connections I know about unfolded slowly and the parties did not recognize each other in a blinding flash.
I have at times, sought out spiritual dating sites because I want something deeper. I know I could date someone with different beliefs as long as they respected mine. and how large can the spiritual dating gap really be? On the flip side of this equation, I do have my beliefs which include reincarnation and energy, but I'm not horribly woo-woo. Maybe it's time to ditch the term spiritual dating. Though there may be a warm glow right away and a sense of comfort.
