Let us pray

Author: Single. Approachable. Girl.

Last night I went out with the “perfect” guy. Seriously.

He is smart, funny, tall, handsome, a children’s charity volunteer, a great dancer and – as I learned when he took my hand and asked that we pray before dinner – a devout christian.

I can’t say that I was totally comfortable with the idea of thanking God for fish and chips on a first date, but I took his hand, bowed my head and said a little prayer to myself…

Our father, in dating heaven

Humor be thy name

Thy virgin come

Thy will be done

With this date, before it’s begun


Give us this girl another round

And forgive me my judgment

As I forgive those who take me to late-night, soft-core porn


Lead him not to temptation

But deliver me the next on your list

For thy may be single, approachable and amused forever
