I’ve started online dating, and looking at some girls’ profiles I had a few questions.
If a girl lists her religion as Jewish, do you think that means she really is religiously Jewish or is it just Jewish identity? Aren’t many Jews basically secular?
If a girl lists herself as Catholic, is she likely to be a traditional Catholic, against abortion, contraception, premarital sex?
If a girl lists herself as Muslim but looks very Westernized (make-up, revealing clothes, etc), do you think she’s devout? I’ve heard that Bosniaks, Kurds, Albanians for example tend to be less devout (sometimes entirely lapsed) than other Muslim peoples.

I'm a Catholic.
The thing with Catholics is that we are a church of one billion. one billion people do not think the same way or do the same things. So if a girl is a Catholic she might be very traditional or very progressive. This is all according to how serious she is with her faith and the church's ideology and how she thinks. OkCupid tries to help by letting you list your religion and telling others whether you are secular, mainstream or orthodox. If a Catholic girl lists as mainstream, she will probably be pro-life and against premarital sex, but die hard about it and might be okay with contraceptive use or gay marriage or something else. If she lists that she is orthodox, probably not much of a chance of her shying away from the traditional beliefs.0
