Expecting your partner to share your rare passion cuts your dating pool by 99%.

My advice: find someone who is open to/tolerates your passion.

My problem with that option is that it also returns a greatly reduced number of profiles.

I know you don’t have a magic wand, so I just have to play the hand I’ve been dealt.

Steve’s a perfect example of a kind, relationship-oriented guy, who is extremely conscientious about the potential damage of two partners having different long-term goals.

Of course, he’s more worried about getting hurt than he is about hurting the woman, but we’ll leave that aside.

There’s no judgment against minorities, but we must acknowledge that if you insist that your partner also have your non-mainstream preference, there are going to be far fewer singles from which to choose.

Simple exercise: Ask yourself what percent of people are ALSO (hardcore bikers, jobless backpackers, Buddhists who don’t believe in possessions)?

These are not choices, but they are groups that face longer odds because they don’t fit into many people’s preferences. The Jewish rocker could cut his hair to appeal to his demographic.

So if you’re in one of the above minorities and you’re faced with a frustrating situation, you have a choice: Keep doing what you’re doing, or change. I just have to point out the obvious: If you’re only open to dating 5% of the population – you’re going to have a harder time finding love. The vegan could tolerate a man who eats chicken and eggs.

I don’t want to date someone, grow attached to her and then feel hurt when the parenthood issue sends us off on our separate ways.
