What Do We Mean By Shallow?

I specifically asked about "shallow reasons" we wouldn't date someone. Shallow typically refers to something of "little depth" or "not exhibiting serious thought."

Many replies fell within the "puts pineapple on pizza" or "doesn't like the Denver Broncos" category.

An Objection To The Post

One person on Facebook felt a strong objection to this question. She stated, "This is an attempt to obtain comments and likes at the expense of people who are probably already struggling enough."

Of course we are looking for comments. This is our way of striking up a conversation with those who follow our Facebook page. We're having fun while interacting with our audience. Not long ago we asked, "What three toppings do you put on a hot dog?" As it turns out, hardly anyone uses ketchup on a hot dog. Our post was not an attack on the ketchup industry, any particular brand, or for that matter, tomatoes.
