OMG! Sect in the City? Church hopping

 After years of Dating Research and Development, she  finally concluded, “Where do you meet the perfect guy in the Bay Area?  In church, of course!”

  In a “I should had V-8” epiphany,  she decided to check out churches for single,  straight, available, age-appropriate, employed/ retired men.

 Candy called it a new spin on “Sex and the City.”

I told her she should call it “Sect in the City.”   Armed with a  newly created,  Top 10 best churches in San Francisco Bay Area list, research from Google maps,  a superfluous understanding of local history,  we started the search.  We decided to check out churches, temples and synagogues.  Something told us to skip  Foursquare Gospel,  Bible thumper’s, and snake charmers.  We had a feeling  Mormons would’t take too  warmly to two single women, with blue eye shadow,  short skirts, tall boots, on the lookout for men. And so it began…

Several churches had websites promoting “Sacred Singles events (i.e. Bible reading for singles; Divorced/ Single/ Widow Bible-based Hikes;  and Oy Vey! JDate Singles meet ups- a Blessing! Too much research, not enough action. 

 Boldly, we went where two single Marin Girls had not gone before. We both agreed no praying – we  were, admittedly, preying!

And so it begins…The Singles Bible Class...We invented a class,  “Tuesday Night Bible Study for Singles with Adult Beverages.”  We put an ad on Craigslist with zero contact information – just time and place- and instructions to bring the Good Book. 


The first Tuesday night at the Sausalito bar was overwhelming. Five attractive women arrived one by one, all dressesd to the nines, all carrying a brand new, or very new, Bibles. Three men arrived – no Bibles – just excuses. We scored a table for 10 and many people wandered by – asked what we were doing. We dubbed it a “Singles  Meet Up” and they all asked to join. By the end of the night, we had 15 men and women chatting and quaffing.

Never once did we feel the need to “get on topic” or open the Good Book.

  1. Loved this post. Made me giggle. Out loud of course! I did know there were faith-based dating sites out there but your literal twists on them here was great. Marianne

      A real Sunday Hot Spot, located near San Francisco, called “Sweat Your Prayers” is a large gaggle of people who dance- alone- eyes closed- to a melange of tantric, melodic chant-like, “tunes.”
      Who knew?
