I'm agnostic, and I don't put people down for what they believe in. The only thing I would dislike is if they pressure me into joining or converting for them. I don't mind participating in church charity events and whatnot, but I don't like being pressured into something I don't believe in.
I dated an atheist, a nondenominational Christian, a Catholic, a Baptiste, a Buddhist and a Jewish guy. Only two pressured me, and that was a turn off. I really liked the Jewish guy, but his family was so traditional, he said he could never marry or be with me fully. That broke my heart, not going to lie. I really liked him.
I guess you can see how traditional she and her family is. They might be open to her dating outside her religion.

I'm a Christian, and I'm pretty laid-back. I found it easier to get along with a similarly laid-back Muslim than with "you're-going-to-hell-unless-you-believe-EXACTLY-as-I-do" fellow Christians.
It really comes down to moderation. I'm very fortunate to have met this girl. Frankly my family is by far less tolerant of our relationship than hers, and I'm going to have to work on them for a while before they shake loose their misconceptions and accept this.
I'm an atheist so I would very much prefer to date someone with the same/similar beliefs as me. But if I really liked the person and they weren't like super religious, and they respected my views, I'd date them.
Forget Her, sweetie. If you are Anything but a muslim man, her parents will forbid it and you are looking for love in all the wrong places with These faces. I am a Christan and married a man out in Egypt a long time ago. It was Permitted that I could do so, no problem. We never had a problem in my religion, I respected his. But in a Muslim girl marrying anyone Outside her own faith, is a No-No, I know. Good luck. xx
It's always better to date someone who has the same beliefs as you, but nothing's keeping you from dating outside of your religion. For example, I'm Mormon (the REAL ones, not the ones who are narrow-minded and act as if we were a sect) and dating inside the religion is so hard cause there's so much pressure in getting married fast. Also, both genders have irrealistic expectations and ideals for partners. I mostly dated Mormon guys and they all were awkward, or I had that feeling that something was not right. The only "non-member" I dated acted normal and was actually "normal". So, in my opinion, there's nothing wrong with it, but still, be careful. Family and opinion conflicts can be extremely overbearing.
I'm Christian and slowly working on my relationship with God, I'm not sure what to call my boyfriend's belief system right now but I guess saying agnostic is good enough. It's extremely difficult and very frustrating and it seems like whenever that topic arises it almost always causes an argument. Things like this can make you look at your partner differently in the heat of the moment, but I do love him so very much. I look at him as a blessing and it doesn't seem he's opposed to change. I think if I focus on myself first he'll come around. I just so desperately want him to convert. I worry about where we'll both end up, but thinking about him hurts my heart so much more.
I already had small crushes on people of other religions, but I don't think if I'll marry outside of my religion. Some of the reasons on why I think it's preferable to date fellow Muslim would be: - Would a non Muslim husband respect some of my religious choices? If someday I decide to wear the Hijab would he be ok with it? I mean I know some not very practicing Muslim guys who opposed the choice of their women who wanted to cover so let alone a non Muslim man? - Would he agree to raise our kids to become Muslim? - Would he do unislamic things such as drinking and set bad example for the children? In terms of morality and way of life, I don't see a big difference between religious people of the 3 Abrahamic religions, I get along extremely well with my christian and Jewish religious friends and we share many common views, but there are still some difference in a couple who can create clashes and disagreement. But with this being said, I'm talking about the average Muslim girl, some are less religous and sometimes do get married to non Muslim guys for example: Iman Abdulmajid is married to David Bowie who is agnostic Amal Alamuddin is married to Goerge Clooney who is agnostic Huma Abedine is married to Anthony Weiner who is Jewish
I used to think I could do it but after my last relationship with a guy who was agnostic I decided I likely won't date someone with different belief systems again. It was just a mess. I personally prefer someone with a similar outlook and more or less a similar belief system.
I'm a Christian, and I'd rather much prefer to be with someone that shares the same beliefs as me. However that doesn't mean I wouldn't date an atheist either, as long as they respect my religion and doesn't ask me to give up on my religious views, then I don't see why not.
intrafaith (e. g. protestant with catholic) - maybe... at least you'll have the same core beliefs while the process may be different
interfaith (e. g. christian with muslim) - never. even if you consider yourself not that religious, once the relationship gets very serious the differences will stick out too much and become too much to bear
i've been with a muslim and their religion is just so radically different from any religion i came across. wouldn't do it.
It's depends on the girl herself. If she's really religious than I don't think you should pursue her as she won't date someone outside her religion. But then that's just an opinion as I have seen a lot of my friends (that muslims and some are religious) date someone not muslim and have a good relationships.
are you you going to change your religion to ISLAM? if you are looking for one night stand or a relationship without considering marriage just leave the girl alone.. we date outside of our religion in one case if the other part is welling to convert.
I can't. It would really fuck with me. I deeply believe in my religion and philosophy of living, I couldn't bare someone not being on the same mentality. I seek truth and nothing less, can't have someone trying to cloud that.
I'm agnostic but I have a very great respect for the history of religious thought and how it has contributed positively to society. I think I'd date anyone who is either Muslim, Agnostic, Christian or Jewish. I'm not too sure about pagan religions, full blown atheists, Buddhists or Hindu conceptions and with all due respect to these religions and their followers who have in fact did great things in the world as well. I don't think logically, they begin to ask or attempt to answer the more deep philosophical questions the Muslim, Christian or Jew has already begun to try to explain.
I'm not into religious fanatics either. I think they have to be open minded and just in search of truth.
I'm atheist and don't really care as long as they aren't bigots. And as long as they think about religion and are comfortable with talking about it. I love talking about religion and think it's very fun.
I have no problem dating a girl of another religion i would highly respect her views on her religion i think it's kind of silly to judge but if her parents wouldn't allow her to date me i would respect that as well.
Yes, why not. I honestly don't care of what kind of religion a woman follows because I look for personality and beauty in a woman. If she is pretty and is everything that I ask for. I would go out with her even if we have opposite religion. As long as we both seem to love each other of who we are. I'll be with her.
I would not date any religious person. I know there are a lot who are just religious on paper when in fact they are not, that's fine. But someone with a really strong belief is just not going to work out for me.
I am an extreme atheist and can hardly stand next to someone who publicly expresses his beliefs in any God. But if you are interested in some muslim girl, why do you ask us whether we would date outside our religion? Just do it man.
