Should I stop talking to her, or try to be her friend?

So my girlfriend broke up with me because "We don't share the same relationship with God", meaning: I don't go to church as often as she does, pray as often as she does, enjoy it as much as she does.
She still wants to be friends with me.
We talked on Skype and had a long distance relationship for 2 months, then I moved to her country and spent a week with her. She introduced me to her friends, brought me to her church and even wanted me to meet her parents, and they wanted to meet me too. After spending a week together, she realized that we don't share what she thinks is the most important thing in a relationship, thus breaking up with me.

  • Sorry to hear about your bad luck. Being her friend may not be easy for you if you have feelings for her. They may go away over time or they may not. They may even get stronger if you spend more time with her being "friends".

    It sounds like she's made her decision. You may be better off not talking to her, at least just for a bit anyway. Revisit the friends issue after you've had time to think about it. Perhaps during that time someone else special will fill the void she's created, and be even better for you.

    • Thanks man, will do.

    • You're welcome. Again, sorry for your situation. That's never easy.

  • I chose "be her friend," but I really have no idea.

    Kind of in the same boat as you, although I've given up on us being in love because she doesn't accept that I'm not a Christian. What's fucked up is that I completely accept HER being a Christian and would go to church with her, pray with her and do all sorts of stuff with her even though that's not a faith I believe in or part of me.

    I'm intensely spiritual and believe in a higher power and all that, but I can't stand organized religion or most organized faiths. There's just something about them that seems ingenuine to me and keeps people from being free. You can still be good and be free... that's possible.

    There's a lot fucked up with organizations and institutions in the world that I want nothing to do with, so I choose not to be a part of it. Unfortunately when you're "irreligious," people get upset.

    • We're in the same place brother. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one going through this.
