  • 1) Doesn't make a difference to me
    2) Love should be able to break such boundaries, but would depend on the other person, and how their religion impacts them
    3) Fine
    4) Fine
    5) I'd look to support them before sleeping with them!!
    6) So long as they is a genuine mutual feeling, I wouldn't care, but probs not more than 30
    7) Obviously not preferable, but I'd look to still make things work
    8) Had bad experiences in the past, so I'd look to avoid it, but can work with the right persom

    • Finally someone who answered pretty much the same way I would! Love this

    • Thanks! You're very welcome!

  • 1) Down for it.
    2) I don't date religious people, atheists, agnostic or spiritual only.
    3) Down for it, but we have to have open and honest communication.
    4) Down for it, but it will really depend on my physical attraction to them... I don't find M to F to be attractive, but I can do F to M.
    5) So long as they are able to communicate their feelings and understand where they're coming from (are they being anxious, is this a depressive episode, etc.) then yes.
    6) I'm willing to date up to 40 years old, so 16 years my senior. But I will not date younger.
    7) Eh it's none of their business, so long as they keep it to themselves then we're fine.
    8 ) So long as we snap/skype/text everyday and have an end in sight, I'm okay with it :)

    • Love these answers so much!!

    5. My girlfriend has this
    6. We also have this, she's 24 and I'm 45 and we could both care less
    7. Lol, you think? Her mom hates the idea, her dad doesn't care.

    • That's actually my issue! I'm 19 and my boyfriend is 31. We don't care, but we have to keep it secret because I know my parents wouldn't like the age gap. It's horrible. Love your answers, by the way!

    • Awww... thank you. :) Yeah, it sucks when there's an age gap. Worse when you have helicopter parents (her mom is super that way), and you still want to be with each other. I know I could be with someone closer to my age if I wanted to. I know society would view it better if I was. You know what? *holds middle finger up to society* Neither me nor my girlfriend care. You shouldn't, either. Go your own way. You'll feel better, even if it doesn't work out. Because you did what you wanted to do. :)

    • "I believe race is superficial, and thus don't biologically believe in the term.. So, that answers that.."

      On reading that, I made an "inner bet" on your race, and won it.
      Ooops. Sometimes people are predictable.

    • @nameus3r.. Well, I recognized that for the rest of my life, I'll be seen as a "Black" man, and I'm totally okay with that.. Also, my picture is right there.. LOL..

    • @nameus3r I'm really curious, how can people be so shallow lol?

What Girls Said 21

  • 1) Anyone who has problem with interracial is messed up. It's okay if there are races you don't find attractive, but being against it is racist and disgusting.

    2) Different religions is fine, although if you are intensely against the other's religious views or vice versa, there will be problems.

    3) It shouldn't matter if the partner is bisexual, but I can imagine if it might freak some people out. I could date a man who was bisexual, though.

    4) Transgender might be an issue for me, because are they ever fully "switched over" to their new one?

    5) I would/have dated people with minor mental illnesses. The key is that it's still possible to have fun with them. Depression can be consuming to the point it's not possible to enjoy dates-- not their fault, as they can't help it, but it still can have that effect. But most of the time it doesn't, and I can actually feel good about helping such a person have some fun.

    6) More than about a 10 year age gap, I wouldn't date. I try not to refuse my company as a friend to people based on age, though, because I feel a little bad about the fact I won't date a guy who's that much older. dating that much younger would be ridiculous at my age, of course.

    7) I could probably charm the other person's family unless they were against it due to race, religion, or something like that. But if the guy was okay with it and I didn't have to interact with the fam, I'd be okay with it, and kind of like the independence.

    8) Long distance is okay for a while, maybe a year. There are limits after which it would be a problem. It would have to start locally though, then one of us might have some reason we had to move. I wouldn't start out with someone too far away.

  • 1. Prefer not to but open to it
    2. No
    3. Been there done that.
    4. No
    5. I would be with them and help them as much as possible.
    6. My age or very close to my age. (19-22)
    7. It depends on the situation.
    8. I'm not sure if I could do that, but I'd be willing to try.

  • 1. Fine by me
    2. Also fine by me
    3. Most likely not going to happen
    4. Definitely will not happen
    5. If they are willing to work on it or let me help them work on it.
    6. About 10 years in either direction
    7. That's their problem (the family)
    8. Been there, done that. Would do it again as long as there was a plan for us to be together at some point.

  • 1) Interracial? Yess I love and find guys of all races/ethnicities attractive and would have zero problem dating someone that didn't look like me!

    2) That's no problem as long as they're not forcing any of their religious beliefs on me.

    3) Yeah, I've done it before he was bi-curious. Although he did cheat on me with a guy so I'd be weary.

    4) I probably would and still love them all the same as well.

    5) Yes, I'd probably help them as much as I possibly could.

    6) Yes. But no more than 10 years, but who knows?

    7) If i really really loved that person I'd stick through even though his parents not liking me would really hurt me personally.

    8) Yep, I've done it before. But this time I'd only do it again if we were a couple irl first.

    • Love these answers so much!! I agree completely :)

  • 1) Don't mind

    6) 4 years
    7) I'd feel bad and always try to change their mind
    8 ) Done it, would do it again as long as he doesn't live too far away

  • 1. Yes
    2. Yes
    I'm atheist so it would be best to date one also, but I'm ok with someone religious as long as they're not too extreme

    5. Yes, because I have it too
    6. I've found this doesn't really matter at all
    7. Yes, although that could be pretty messy
    8. Did that twice, never again

  • 1. I have my preferences and don't care about what others think of it.
    2. I'm open to it but it depends on the other person's religion and their willingness to respect my beliefs.
    3. Dealbreaker.
    4. Dealbreaker.

  • 1. It's cool, don't care.

    2. I'd be hesitant to datesomeone who was religious but if we still shared the basic beliefs of how to behave and how we want to raise kids, it'd be fine.

    3. I'm bi, couldn't care less if my partner was too.

    4. That's fine with me.

    5. I have generalised anxiety disorder and would be cautious about dating someone mentally ill incase we made each other's health worse.

    6. I only really want to date someone quite close to my age. Right now I don't really wanna date someone over 25.

    7. I don't know how I'd deal with that. My family hates my partner and I'm okay with it but I think I'd have been reallly upset if his family didn't like me.
