I've found someone more spiritually in tune with my beliefs

I've decided to try celibacy for a while

It's just not God's will

You're just not evangelistic enough

I feel a calling to the ministry

I've decided to prepare for the Apocalypse

I'm sorry, it'll never work; I'm joining the "Reform Movement"

I'm going to purify myself from all earthly pleasures

God hasn't revealed His plan for my life yet

I'm thinking about relocating to the Holy Land

We're so close, I feel like I'm dating my brother/sister

I just need more time for stewardship

At least I got a lot out of our Bible studies together

I'm going to devote my free time to studying the Dead Sea Scrolls

You need someone with a more thorough knowledge of the Bible

I need more space to contemplate my mission

I think we should just be prayer partners

I have to keep my mind clear from all earthly distractions

I do love you -- as a fellow believer

When I'm with you, I just cannot concentrate on my ministerial role

The one I've heard the most is

"I love God more"


"I want to spend time seeking God"

.... so lame...

(before some smart Alec comes on and corrects me, I am well aware that some people actually MEAN this, it's just very rare...)

how about "You know when we got together I thought you were real interesting, but after 2 dates I'd rather chew glass than spend another moment with you"...
