Dating someone with religious differences
Dear Sandra, My girlfriend is Catholic and I’m Jewish.I don’t take her to synagogue, she doesn’t take me to church.Which brings up a bigger point: let’s stop obsessing about WHY people do things. It could be any number of reasons — she’s getting over her ex, you have bad breath, she didn’t feel that spark, you talked too much about yourself, she’s seeing three other guys.
There’s nothing wrong with having preferences; the problem comes when our preferences serve to box us in and restrict our options in love….
Someone I used to be with is Catholic and recently discovered that he wants to pursue his faith more seriously.
I don’t mind at all but he ultimately felt that because I don’t believe in the same thing, he’ll end up making decisions in the future based on his faith that I won’t be able to fully understand.
And height and weight and age absolutely matter — if you make them matter.
Just don’t be surprised when the more rules you have for your partner, the harder it is to find a partner. People have their self-imposed deal-breakers and they always will.Have you ever dated someone who was really religious and he/she chose religion over you?
