I just found out that the guy, who I am seriously crushing on and really want to date, is in fact a smoker. I didn't realize this, because he only smokes in his off time. He doesn't smoke when he is at work, so I had no clue.
Now I am wondering what to do about this. I am from Utah and am conservative on some issues and liberal on others. Well smoking goes into my conservative category. I see it as an unhealthy and unnecessary habit that just causes problems.
So now I have to wonder what to do about this. Do I ignore this characteristic for the chance at a relationship? Or should I stand my ground and not date him until he quits smoking?
Would he even be willing to give up smoking for me if he loved me? or is smoking one of those things where it is "take me as I am and don't try to change me" sort of thing?

I'm a smoker myself and I've dated non-smokers too...Some of them didn't really care but one was like you didn't approve of smoking but we reached an agreement I just wouldn't smoke around her or I had to go outside to smoke and it worked out fine and the smoking wasn't a factor when we broke up... We why don't you make a similar arrangement with him tell him "just don't smoke around me" and if he really wants to date you he'll agree to that condition...1
