Online dating sites buddhists is jonathan rhys meyers still dating reena hammer
Many people look to Siddhartha Gautama as an example of someone who attained nirvana, a buddha. Every other week I'll take on a new question and give some advice based on what I think Sid, a fictional Siddartha, would do.
Each week in this column we look at what it might be like if Siddhartha was on his spiritual journey today. Like us, Sid is not yet a buddha, he's just someone struggling to maintain an open heart on a spiritual path while facing numerous distractions along the way. So let's take on the first question, from Justin: With so many people out there looking to meet other singles, it's no surprise that online dating has become a big trend.
In fact, I once went out to dinner with an ex and her new boyfriend that she met on match.com, and when placed across the table from one another, they new guy and I looked exactly the same with our fuzzy blondish hair, glasses, and matching turtleneck sweaters.
I think that they're making things a lot more complicated. Here's my level of education and here's how much money I make and here's how important it is to me that I date someone smarter/dumber/richer/more traveled/fatter than me.I, on the other hand, think it's just because they are encouraging people to get out of their shell a bit and go and meet new people.I believe Sid would give two thumbs up to dating websites so long as you are realistic about what you're getting yourself into.In fact, I think he would say it's a perfectly valid way to meet people.e Harmony, for example, claims on their homepage to be responsible for 2 percent of marriages in the United States today.
Why actually go out and risk face-to-face awkward encounters with strangers when you can browse the internet and discreetly check people out without their ever knowing?
