Yesterday my nephew and I spent time together doing mutual favors. I asked him if he had a date for his sister’s upcoming wedding.



“Nope, my girlfriend dumped me.”

I sighed. “Neither, do I.”

He laughed out loud.

“Why did you laugh?”

“I guess I don’t think of you like that, you know dating”

“How do you think of me?”

“Like a nun, you are so religious.”

“Being religious doesn’t mean I don’t want to date, besides I think of myself as spiritual not religious.”


Would you believe he has a joke for women who think they are spiritual not religious?


What about you? Do you consider yourself spiritual or religious? Do you find yourself excluded by either label?
