Have you ever dated someone with significantly different religious beliefs than yours?

Really? If you can't get along with someone whose sole issue is different religion, then you have bigger issues

No, but I wouldn't mind. As Long as she doesn't preach it to me.

It shouldn't matter, however Her family kept trying to take me to church. I'm an atheist so as you can tell it was a...difficult situation

To clarify, it probably wouldn't work out with a born-again Christian or Orthodox Jew (even though I am Jewish), but as long as they're respectful and open, it'll be fine.

Well that's sad. There are some wonderful, non-Christian people out there that you're just ignoring because they happen do have different beliefs than you.
What a loss.

Haven't dated anyone, but I'd pretty much have to. The boys at my temple are freaking annoying. Judaism is not a large religion.

I don't see how being with someone who has different beliefs than you should matter. As long as you're both respectful about it, I fail to see how it should be an issue. I have no problem with others being religious until they try to force their beliefs on me or tell me I'm not a good person for it.

Things obviously didn't work out. However, with my current boyfriend, it's not an issue at all. Not even with his intensely catholic Mexican family. They loved me and could tell I'm a genuinely nice and good person before they found out about my beliefs. They still like me just as much. :)

Yes, most of my exes were religious, and my current boyfriend is very catholic. I'm an atheist. It had never been an issue until one of my exes tried to convert me by telling me that I'm a horrible person just because I'm not religious. It was heartbreaking that he thought of me that way.

Nope. I'm not going to date someone that isn't Christian.

My wife for 6 years and partner since 14 years old. Me and her are complete opposites in religious beliefs. Not a problem until trying to determine fair way to raise our daughter now 6 months old.

Hatsune: She was murdered by her ex-boyfriend. He was under the influence of cocaine and went into a rage and stabbed her to death.

Nope and I wouldn't because I would never marry someone with different beliefs.

@monkees19. Don't give them ammo, even sarcastically! Besides, they'll catch onto us and try to stop the Satanic pledges and baby sacrificing! Where's the fun in that?

I would be fine if someone I dated someone didn't believe the same as me just hopefully they are respectful and respect what my faith says I can't do and things I have to do.

I'm an atheist married to a Catholic, so "yes." But we were both Southern Baptists when we started dating, so "kinda."

Miss- There are atheists like that. I've even seen it on this app.
I am atheist but have a very open mind and respect those who believe.
Nice to see that you are open to differing religions.

I haven't dated someone with different beliefs, but i am friends with people of different beliefs. I don't judge! My fiancé and I believe in the same thing, but if he had a different view i wouldn't love him any less.

I am Catholic and my fiancé is Hindu. It was difficult at first to integrate our customs, but that sharing just made our love for each other grow stronger. I had never thought I could love anyone other than a Catholic... But you can't help who you fall in love with. She is my soulmate! :-)

With religion we can all find some common ground based on a higher power, peace, love, and unity. Unless of course it is someone who practices satanism or cult like fanaticism (Jones Town) ... That maybe another thing all together.

Clearly, you fail to accept their opinions. Open your mind more, liberal.

I'm a atheist my wife is baptist. I let her take kids to church because the church she goes to teaches good morals.

Disagree, their head isn't so far up their a** in arrogance that it would cause a problem.
I'd prefer to date only Christians but like I said personality comes first.


10/21/12 7:51 am

Because where I live, and people might be different elsewhere, the atheists are cruel and condescending towards the religious. They act like they're so much better than religious people and I'm sorry but that's not who I will tolerate. However, if someone's religious it means that even if I...
