I asked a prospective date if he’s spiritual. Here’s a sampling of acceptable answers in my world:

A. Yes, I’m a devout ____________ (fill in the blank with just about any denomination)
B. Yes, but I don’t consider myself religious
C. No! I think it’s all hogwash
D. I would say my spirituality is evolving (Please, oh please, Universe, send me this one!)

The prospective date was silent for a moment, clearly flummoxed by the question. Or maybe the concept. He wasn’t sure.

A nice man, perhaps. But no.
