No I would never reject someone based on their religion (or lack of it). It's not that important to me as long as we are on the same level morally.4
i am atheist and wanted to know
I wouldn't reject an atheist. As long as he's not a fanatical non-religious nutter.
I met a guy who couldn't stop talking down people who believed in God. He was so condescending. Ok you don't believe. But don't go around trying to convert others. Same goes for people who believe in God. Don't go around trying to convert others. Have a deep respect for all beliefs
I'm not a Theist, but I'm a spiritual atheist.
Depends on how devoted she is to her religion.
But I wouldn't get with a guy who is a religious nutter and all that he can talk about is God, but I don't want to get with a guy who can only talk about is the non-existence of God. There needs to be an inbetween.
I once had a boyfriend that kept going on how much he hates Justin Bieber that I swear he has a crush on him because that's all he ever talked about. This applies with any lad who believes in God's existence or not.
I really don't know. I think it may be the source of a lot of arguments. I would be friends with the guy (and not try convert him) but honestly a relationship would be difficult if not impossible. If he just didn't know what he believed in and was open then maybe. I wouldn't force religion on him or anything but at leats I would know he has not completely rejected the idea of a God.
In turn, I would want him to accept me for what my beliefs make me. No sex before marriage, praying before meal times etc. I would also wwant him to then respect me to by not ridiculing my beliefs or trying to change me.
*ok not a Theist girl here* (I currently identify as Atheist) but:
I don't mind if my bf is religious. He has the right to have his own beliefs and if he has a connection with what he believes is a divine being, good for him!
The only thing I mind is when someone (not only a romantic partner but anyone really) tries to shove their beliefs down my throat. I could NOT date anyone who told me that because I don't believe in "The Divine Truth" or whatnot that I am an inferior human or that I don't have morals or that I'll burn in hell forever (etc)
Of course, like any relationship, there will be compromises to make (especially if a believer and a nonbeliever get married) as in where, when, and how the marriage ceremony will take place and if you two want children... will your child be baptized or "committed" to a particular faith as chosen by the parents?
those are things to think about...
But honestly, if you both respect each other, things should turn out fine :)
Hell, I've dated a Wiccan before. Dating an Atheist wouldn't that different, well except for when it comes to religious matters. My only thing is that how would it be , if we were to become really serious. Our religious differences was apart of why my ex ( the Wiccan) and I broke up.
Honestly, I wouldnt. It would be hard not to mention God in one way or another. My dad isn't chriatian and my mom is, they have a really hard time because my mom goes to church and he doesn't. He also works all the time so when he is off and age goes to church he gets mad. He hates our church and doesn't like our friends from church. It's hard. So I wouldn't want to be in the same position
I could date an atheist. But our beliefs cannot clash.
The better question is, is a theist girl really worth dating? There's a certain level of compromise that is just really hard to attain, and part of that is truly accepting that they pray and go to church and actually believe that the words of the Bible are true and that they have a connection to "God". I have a catholic friend, but I'm not sure I could respect even her beliefs on the long run if I were to live in the same household.
