What are your opinions on dating someone outside of your religion?
I'm interested in a Muslim girl but I don't know if I should pursue her.

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.1

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.1
