So there's this guy I met, he seems really sweet, he sings and we're into the same music. It seems like a great match. Except I saw looking through his facebook and he's pretty religious (christian I think) and it seems like a part of his life but he is very liberal and he's not the conservative type, which I like a lot. But I'm a strict athiest. The type who loves Cosmos, read the God Delusion and other books written by Richard Dawkins, like there's no part of me that could be religious because I believe the bible is man-made and holds a lot of inconsistencies. Anyways, I clearly feel strongly about it and I've never dated a religious guy. Do you think this will be a deal breaker for him? Or in your experience, can people with completely different religious views/anti-religious views date with no problems? Thanks.

Ask yourself, "If he ever brought up God or anything religious, would I fight him on it?" Have you ever argued with a Christian about his beliefs compared to yours? If the answer is yes, (assuming it would be with a statement like "I'm a strict atheist") find yourself another man. You two are going to hate each other real fast if you're going to make a comment about his beliefs whenever he brings it up and vice versa.
I have had girlfriends that would take me to their Bible studies and Masses and I listened and participated as if I was Christian. I have had other girlfriends give me lectures about how god isn't real for this and that reason and I listened and talked as if I was an atheist.
I'm agnostic, so for me, its just another belief on something no one knows anything about. I always talk and listen to people though as if I were a part of their religion cause I feel its better to get a wider perspective on different ideas and ways of thinking than shoving everything off to the side for your own. If you and this guy are both not going to respect each other's different perspectives, its not going to work.0
