Too much, just right or not enough?

I've decided to try the whole online dating thing again and put this disclaimer on my profile (not here, this isn't a date site for me).

"Disclaimer: If "GOD" is anywhere on your profile or is something you value, please understand we will NOT be compatible. Thank you for being respectful and moving on."

Way to put it out there. Maybe should have used all caps though, the “chosen” seem to like that! ?

Whenever I think about trying dating sites again I think “step away from the ledge” and I come back to my senses

@Crimson67 Already?

Shit, you're not here for dates? I'm deactivating my account.

A pedant would point out that your disclaimer puts "god" on your profile 😉

But, yeah, being upfront is probably smart.

Seems like "just right". You're being honest. That's always a good thing.

Good luck, sweetie. I hope you have a positive experience.

I agree with you but wouldn't be surprised if they message you anyway.

As others have said, I don't know if it will work, but couldn't hoit. LOL! Your disclaimer is straightforward and not rude. I think it's good as-is.

3

You can try it but I think it just encourages them all the more, but good luck and let us know how it goes for you

3

Seems clear enough to me but you're not dealing with people (xtians) with any common sense, but good luck 🙂

Gee where were you 30 years ago !!!!!! 🙂

@Crimson67 Actually a better question is, where the hell was I ??????..... we all had dreams to chase and unfortunately space and time is a big factor in the equation of life. Happy to have had the opportunity to talk to you here though. No doubt.

Interesting approach. Please do let us know how people respond to it. I wish you success in finding who you are looking for. Be well.

Perfect. I have used various phrasings of this. Be prepared for it to be ignored or not comprehended! Edit: Just saw "Kentucky", so there are equal chances your profile can't even be read! Sorry, couldn't resist.....

2

Just right.

2

Good idea. You will probably get trolled but they will be easy to spot with that disclaimer.

That should really thin the herd.... Best of luck.

Like how you say this is not a dating site for you. Not for me either. Also think it's enough for a disclaimer. Although I suspect a lot of people will respond to your profile based on your photos and not read a lot of the details.

I think it sounds very reasonable. I would guess many will blow right past it and never see it or ignore it.

I wouldn't have thought, once you're able to screen the god squad out, that you would have much problem getting a date, unless you're a real pain in the ass or really smelly?
Someone described you as a Kentucky Redhead, thought that made you sound like a chicken but that's a Rhode Island Red lol 😉

I think just right. It has the right amount of information without looking like a rant about beliefs.

Refreshing comment, I'm now following your posts.

And you are telling me that we probably won't date from meeting on this site and don't want to date a theist because????????

1

Oh man you in Ky. Be hard to find free thinkers there I think. Its hard enough here in California. In class we went around and introduced our selves one of my my statement was I am atheist out and proud. It is more acceptable to gay or lesbian to be atheist here. I am an atheist, hippy liberal.

1

Amen! I need to add that on my site!

1

I think it's fine. Your being open and up front about it and hopefully people will respect that.

Years ago when I had one, I met several women that were agnostic/atheist. I was pleasantly surprised.

A few believers also responded but, when I met them, they would be considered "nones" as in , they believed in a supreme being but no specific religion. I figured they were working their way down the better path.

1

It sounds good to me. Let us know how it works. I'm thinking you will hear from believers anyway; but I want to know why. Do they not read the profile, do they not care, or do they feel the need to try to change you? You could turn this into a scientific study and sell your results. Ok, my mind is racing, I think I need a Saturday afternoon nap. lol
