“Unless you are married or actually wearing an engagement watch there is absolutely no reason to look anything less than 100% available to people you meet during Adventist wedding season,” said Casada Claro, an Adventist marriage therapist. “Make sure your status says ‘single.'”
She stressed that Adventists looking for romance should even “avoid cutesy pictures of you and the opposite sex.” Claro counsels clients to stick to flattering pictures of themselves on nature walks or looking beach-appropriate on tropical mission trips.
“The last thing you want is to clink Martinelli’s glasses with someone or be making eyes at them from across that dance-less church fellowship hall only for that cute Adventist to think you are not available when they check your profile out on their phone during a long-winded toast,” said Claro. “That is the definition of a wasted opportunity.”
Claro urged Adventist young people to always remember that chances are those cute pre-med, theology or nursing majors they met last year at school will still be around next year. “Consider them your back-up plan,” she said. “But don’t make them an excuse for not striking when the wedding season is hot.”
