Yeah, I was told once that I wasn't "christian" enough for a possible boyfriend- we were rocky for a while but became good friends.

The beliefs can be very important to people- but Atheists and Agnostics can share those same morals and views without having to step into a church. They can learn it themselves, it's not that hard.

I'm very moral, with my Mother's side being Catholic and my Father's Baptist, and I am Agnostic.

I mean, for some people, you have to be just as deeply dedicated to be able to be with someone else.

I have known a man for four years now who was raised Jewish but is still willing to accept me for I am and think about a future together. I know it might be difficult, because I know nothing of the Jewish faith and traditions, but if we want it, we'll work it out.

You'll work it out.

A person's beliefs are a HUGE deal... its not something to scoff at. That kind of thing is usually very important to people, so they will choose someone who they are compatible with.

Secret Teller here. I am by no means 'scoffing' at his religion or beliefs. I completely understand his reasons. That doesn't make it hurt any less.

Despite whether or not it would've worked out between us, I still love him.

I was speaking generally... Not saying that you yourself were scoffing... you wouldn't... you like this person... but lots of people do.. and shouldn't.

A belief system is rather huge.

It makes up one of the largest parts of you.

Love comes after beliefs, I think.
Because, if you have diff beliefs, trust me, YOU WILL CLASH. x.x;
Be happy that you don't have to go through that pain...
It was just my best friend and I, but I still can't believe it hurt that bad. x_x

i hate discrimination in religion, you know, and i think that religion is really personal and must kept to ones' self but...people tend to choose those who have the same beliefs. Conflict over religion can r-e-a-l-l-y affect a relationship. i mean, imagine, he wants to celebrate Christmas and has to go to church alone :(.

I hate to say this but, for all the seeming hypocrisy, i would date a Christian rather that someone of another religion...

Im sure youll find someone for you :hug: who either doesnt care what you believe in or believes the same as you do :)

As a Christian I can almost see where that person was coming from, because it's natural to date others like you and is you meet an atheist you
're taught to try and change them. It's not the best thing in the world but it happens.
:hugs:
It still doesn't make it right for them to leave solely because of their religion

...then maybe its better that way, so that you don't have to deal with anymore disapointment from that person, I guess?

Sorry, I'm gonna skip the religious talk here :]

anyway, I really hope your able to find someone else out there, that can make you smile that smile that's been hidden for so long ^-^
