I have never had the courage to talk to a girl and ask we out on a date, but when I met this pakistani foreign exchange student at my school, I couldn't let her pass through my life without becoming her friend. She is smart, funny and captivating to talk to. We have lots in common and our first date went well in my opinion, although in not sure she would call it a date... which is where this question stems from. I knew she was Muslim, but I don't know everything about sharia and dating. By any American standards, it was a date... However, she would not let me pay for anything for her... which I found odd, and seemed surprised when I opened doors for her. I really like her and want to be her boyfriend/friend, but I don't know how far this can go with her being Muslim. I am an atheist, and I doubt I will ever be an actual Muslim. This could be a problem because I've heard women are not allowed to marry outside Islam in pakistan. If she followed that, would she have spent 3 hours alone with me? She is really sweet and I want to know about anything I should be aware of/ respectful I when I hang out with her in the future. Also of there are any Muslim girls out there, would you ever love an atheist enough to try to work something out with him? I look forward to any advice!

Its cuz she's a sweet girl. Duh. I absolutely loatheeee if someone pays for me. I want to pay for my own things, I know they're being or whatever but id like to pay for my own food. I remember my boyfriend put £10 on for my oyster card I just thought to myself 'omg I feel bad, I should've brought more money grrr! '
Im not sure about Muslims not being able to marry a Christians. Allah gave the option to people to be a believer or not. It's not a command. Its persons rightful decisions. Also, your gf, she might be different to me cuz Muslims are categorized im groups (this was never supposed to happen) and your gf is in sharia. They follow abit differently. I, don't follow myths that aren't written in the Holy book. Your gf however is probably. That will have sn affect on behalf of your relationship. Oh by the way, you can't actually go really far with a relationship when not being in marriage. I don't know about kissing or orals. However sex before marriage is definitely forbidden. Just like in the bible.
Ps, I think a Muslim girl can marry an atheist just as long as you don't indoctrinate her or force things on her about religion. Also don't make her change heer religion only if she said she wants to.
Obstacles are : her parents, culture rules, her thoughts (could be negative) and im not very entirely certain of it. Search that part up or email Josef/Joseph Islam. he's a scholar. Very helpful. he's open minded0
