Hinging on a label:
Does anyone else shy away from certain things in a Hinge dating profile? Specifically concerning political and religious options - Liberal, Conservative, Atheist, Catholic, Muslim, etc.? For a while I believed that when a person chose these things it meant that they were an integral part of their life and personality. What I am now realizing is that while there is no hard rule, it seems (anecdotally) that most people choose these options without more than a few seconds of thought. You may quickly find out that the Conservative/Liberal-identifying date might have no idea what their personal political philosophy is and may even disagree with the one they chose! Better still, the Atheist may not really disbelieve the concept of God but rather simply does not believe in any major religion and their concept of God that they have pumped out over the millennia. You just may find out that the person who chose “Spiritual” actually…well, just does yoga every once and a while.
The point is, these labels are very trendy at the moment but often poorly understood – so maybe don’t take them too seriously – just go out and have a conversation! You may learn something about yourself as well… *Disclaimer – if you are looking at a profile where someone took the time to write “Trump is the second coming” or “Trump should die” (all hyperbole of course), then that better be very important to you because… really that’s all they think about.
