This is a good metaphor for not only "finding" a mate, but for our view of God. Too often we "pick and choose" the attributes of God that we find attractive -His love, mercy, patience, etc. - but fail to recognize that a loving God also hates (sin), judges (sinners), and does not tolerate (those who have a form of godliness but deny its power). May God grant us the humility to realize EVERY attribute of the One, True, living God, and that we consider the potential consequences of "picking" God's personality to suit our needs.

I had to read this one just because of the title. My old roommate and I actually signed up one night at a Christian matchmaker/penpal site (she found it and we were bored lol). I actually met some of the guys in person, and she was e-mailed by an old college friend of mine! lol -anyway, while I didn't match with any of those gentelmen -God did have me meet my husband through the internet, but not through a matchmaking site (unless you count God leading me to the chat room we met in lol :) Very well done and cute ending!

LOL...very cute! I met my husband online(not through a dating service, though). We had to work through the "perfect mate syndrome" on our own! Very nicely written!
