The turn offs and turn ons to dating a religious person, in your opinion.
Most Helpful Guy
I'm assuming this question is directed towards non-religious folks, but if it's okay, I would like to offer my two cents, because this is a very interesting and important discussion (I am a practicing Catholic).
I have answered several questions before asking "guys, what do you want in a girl?" and part of my answer is always that it is important that we share similar, if not exactly identical beliefs on religion, politics, and culture. Minor differences are okay, but if the differences are very significant, i.e., one person is a practical Catholic and the other is a firm (not necessarily militant, though) atheist, I don't think it should be purused. Some people can make it work. Personally, I don't think I could. I wouldn't want to have to compete with a girl over whose worldview our children would be raised in. I would want to be able to get along with her family and share my experiences with them and have them understand what I'm talking about and vice versa.
It's also worth mentioning that I don't believe in this concept of "missionary dating". If two people of differing religious beliefs start dating and one just happens to say "hey, I think I want to start going to church with you", that's fine, but if you are actively pressing for the other person to believe what you do, whether you are the believer or non-believer, you're just going to create problems and end up with an even more distorted view of the other person's system.
Bottom line, though, it's risky to have two significantly different belief systems come together in a personal relationship. Like I said, some can make it work, others can't. I just think you're asking for trouble if you do, though. I'm sure I had other points, but I probably forgot :P0
