Of course, it's not just Christian women who try and find a partner who will share their culture and beliefs.
Leah*, an accountant from London, tells me how she joined JDate, the leading dating website for the Jewish community, because it's important to her that the potential father of her children would be able to teach them about their heritage.
“It's pressure from my family but also pressure from myself – I think life would just be easier, and better, if my partner was Jewish,” she tells me.
Scrolling through Christian Connection, the most popular UK Christian dating site, profile after profile said almost nothing about the men in question.
Instead said blokes had chosen to write strings of generic proclamations about how much they loved the Lord. I was getting that vibe already guys, considering you've chosen to join a religious dating site. He was writing from the waters off the coast of Canada, and wondered if I'd wait for him.
It's a bit off-putting.” And for Leah, herself an interesting, intelligent young woman, the men on the site seem a little, well, uncool.
“In all honesty, there just aren't many attractive men on there.
My friend was on JDate and said it was fun.” Some of the issues she's come across are similar – lots of messages from people in the older age bracket, and guys who are based in wildly inconvenient locations, like Israel or America.
There's also the sense that some men are using their profile to advertise themselves as the perfect Jewish husband-in-waiting: “Lots of them are just looking for a wife, ASAP – they post pictures of them with their nieces and nephews, basically saying, 'look what a great dad I'll be'. SCOTT ROSS (reporting): That was just her spending money. At any time during your dating process did the spiritual roots of your lifei.e. KATRINA: Absolutely, but he kept telling me it was the same God, just a different language, that Allah was the same God as the God I served. I say that love is not blind, its deaf and dumb also. I was five months pregnant with our son, and he kicked me in the stomach because he stayed out late one nightovernightand I questioned him for it. KATRINA: Yes, it was my fault that I made him beat me because I shouldnt have asked him. She had a good upbringing and became a Christian in her teens. Then one night at a club, Katrina met the man of her dreams. “I've tried a few of the most popular Muslim dating sites,” says Aisha*, a Sunni Muslim. Sure, there are success stories – we've all known someone who knows someone who found her “soulmate” online.“On one, I got loads of emails from men 15 years younger than me living in Pakistan and India, who just wanted an opportunity to move to the West. They will tell you that if you just want it enough, and you keep trying, and you accept that you have to get through 50 frogs to find the one great catch, and you don't give up hope even on your 70th appallingly bad date…then you'll get there. But as for me, I'm exhausted even thinking about it. SCOTT ROSS (reporting): An important detail in this story: the man was also a Muslim.
