.

I attended this church around 2010 (the BA location), while I was in my late 30s, primarily because my parents taught me that if a Christian wants marriage, one should go to churches to find another believer, and not visit bars.

I was very put off by a female greeter at this church who I approached for directions, who assumed I must be a mother.

I know this greeter did not mean offense, but it still annoyed me when I told her I was new and wanted to know where the adult singles class was, and she asked, "How many kids do you have?"

Well none, lady, as I've never been married, and therefore have never had kids, or been divorced.

It's not just this church that has this annoying tendency, though. Every time I go to a new church someone always assumes I've been married or had kids at some point - I have not been married or had kids, so stop making this assumption! It's rude and hurtful.

I did some research online to choose which churches to visit. This church's site at the time had a web page saying something like they had a "thriving" singles scene of single men (and women) age 35 and up who attend, which turned out to be false.

I showed up one Sunday morning. The mixed gender class I was taken to most of the men appeared to be in their 50s or older (too old for me). Some men in the class even had white hair.

One single woman in the class, who was in her mid 40s, who was very nice, told me it's not a good church to go to if you're age 35 - 50 wanting a spouse: she actually told me of another church in the area that has more eligible single men my age.

This church should not be giving an impression on their web site that they have a thriving acting singles scene for people age 35 and up, since they in fact do not. It's like false advertising.

At this church and others, I've noticed that many older singles have let themselves go, appearance wise. Character matters, but so too does physical appearance (to both genders. It's a fallacy that only men care about looks).

Yet, most of the singles I see (and some express a desire for marriage), are obese or "slobby" in appearance.

I exercise frequently, stay thin, and wear make-up when I go out.

Many of the older single men and woman I see, though, are very over weight, wear wrinkled or stained t-shirts to church (one guy at this church in the singles class I attended had a ketch-up stain on his shirt), some of the women do not wear make up and look like they don't even brush their hair.

I don't think this church does enough to draw in singles age 35 and older, or to try to get them spouses. There do not appear to be many church-sponsored events for older singles to meet and mix.
