Of course, tales of scarce men and sexual permissiveness in ancient Sparta won’t convince everyone, so I began to explore the demographics of modern religion.
I wanted to show that god-fearing folks steeped in old-fashioned values are just as susceptible to the effects of shifting sex ratios as cosmopolitan, hookup-happy 20-somethings who frequent Upper East Side wine bars. One of my web searches turned up a study from Trinity College’s American Religious Identification Survey (ARIS) on the demographics of Mormons.
With our site growing ever more popular, the nation’s Jewish singles are taking the search for love into their own hands and actively making opportunities for themselves.
Indeed, a majority of our clients are dating with marriage as the end goal.Meeting interesting new people to date can be hard in today’s America – even when your requirements are broad.Add in some specifics, such as a desire to find someone who shares your Jewish background, and hard can become near impossible.Premarital sex remains taboo for Mormons, but the shortage of Mormon men was pushing some women over the brink.“There might actually be a more promiscuous dating culture than there otherwise would be in the Mormon culture because of this gap.” Months later, still neck-deep in Mormon research, I got lucky again.
