I like this guy he's smart, funny, charming, the parents like him. He's an all around good guy, but he's extremely limited when it comes to his view of the world. He's overly religious, at first I thought I could handle it but now I'm not so sure. I'm a christian but I don't agree with a lot of what people condemn others for. For example I support gay rights, I'm pro choice and I think Harry Potter is just a book. I think what I'm try to get at here is how do I date some one who has such a narrow veiw of the world and who I often disagree with?

You can try and learn something from him, I mean I learn a lot from people who don't think like I do, it used to really bother me, but now I use it as a learning experience, that is the differnences. I used to think my way was the right way and my thinking was the right way, but now I realize everyone has there own ways and sometimes I learn a thing or two. I think healthy debates are great for a realtionship, your never going to see eye to eye on everything. If the issues you guys debate about our that important to you, then maybe you should reconsider dating him all together.thats your call ya know?
Maybe he is learning to broaden his view by listening to you and the way you see things, you could be opening him up and don't even know it yet. If he's sooo set in his ways that he won't see your point of view or even listen, like I said you may want to reconsider dating him, it may lead to bigger more important differences down the road, with lets say kids, marriage, schooling, church etc etc.
You guys must have something in common to be together, maybe it is your differences that bring you together, you may compliment each other very well. I personally like to be around people who don't always see things the way I do, I like other ways of seeing things and thinking about things I find it interesting, and have even changed some of my thoughts on issues after listening to what someone else had to say. I say embrace your differences and both try and learn from eachother. Good Luck.0
