Post Reply would you be friends / date a religious person
Posted 3/10/16
I don't mind being friend with somebody that is religious. Has long as they remember is their religion and not mine.
Marry into their religion? If you mean she or he wants a wedding in the church? I fine with that or any ceremonial crap in general. Big nope comes if you expect me to believe in your religion.

I'm already friends with a religious people. One is a Mormon, while the rest are Catholic. Now my Mormon friend is pretty religious, but she's still cool. I wouldn't date her though. I see her as more of a sister than a potential girlfriend. My Catholic friends are also cool. None of them try forcing their religion down my throat.

^ I am Mormon. you wouldn't know I am religious unless I told you.

so as you probably know , since you are friends with a Mormon, how important it is to us to marry in the temple

ofc I would not force it down your throat. just , in the long term that IS what I am looking for

Friends of course. I have nothing wrong with being friends with people from all walks of life.

Dating is a different story. If I date someone that means I plan to have a lasting relationship with that person, but if something like our religions intervene then I just can't in good conscious do so. Say there was this ceremony where one had to believe what the other does in order for them to be together, I in good conscious couldn't do it. I couldn't do it because I don't believe in their belief. I would be lying to them and just saying I do believe when I really don't. I would only be hurting them in the end which is something I would never want to do. They have every right to believe what they believe and practice it, I would never think less of them. I just would not want to pretend and say something they want to hear. Hope I made sense.

Oh cool. Is there a reason why you don't let on that your religious unless someone asks, or you tell them?

I do indeed know how important it is to marry in the temple. I've met with missionaries countless of times due to my friend's recommendation. They honestly didn't force it down my throat like other religious groups. It was more of a gradual process, so in the long run I did learn more about it. I almost did convert one time, and probably wouldn't rule it out in the future. However, I'm comfortable with the way things are now.

Of course. Everyone is looking for something that's best for them, so I understand.

yea, I don't say it, if im on a date - well I don't intend to but I do have a big mouth because I am honest- because, even more so with being Mormon, its like voodoo, l
like oh shit, well nope im not dating her
also people tend to not want to commit, even to a simple relationship, and -off topic ik- I don't want sex before marriage, not just because of the religion, so add that in there it scares ppl away

So long as they weren't overbearing about it sure, but that goes for anything really (sports, art, literature, money, etc, etc). I just don't like people who are overly pushy and having a set of deeply held beliefs can often lead to a certain level of pushiness.

Well it's better to be honest while on a date. You wouldn't want to make a fake persona. I have noticed that people do tend to think that the Mormon religion is like voodoo, which is just plain silly. It's just like any other "normal" religion out there.

I think people not wanting to commit has more to do so with this generation than anything else. Nothing wrong with waiting till marriage to do that. If that scares people away, then they obviously aren't the right one for you. It's kinda ironic in a way, because I'm the same way as you....yet I'm not Mormon.

Maybe just maybe.

If they were Christian I would have no problem but I'd be far too stubborn to give up Christianity. Of course I could be friends but I don't think I could marry them.
