The Best 2 Years

Why Dating Mormon Girl Doesn't Work

This is an actual ad on Craigslist I found. Note that it does not say ANYTHING about testimony, just being a RM that cooks, cleans, plays guitar and is attractive.

I was born to a very Mormon family. I was the second of 7, raised never to drink caffeine, swear, do anything too crazy on a Sunday, etc. Little rules and big rules where followed by in my house.
