Poll Would you date someone who doesn't share your religious beliefs? (39 votes)

Yes 67%
No 26%
Maybe 8%

If you're religious then he/she doesn't believe in the same religion as you or isn't religious at all, if you're not religious then he/she is.

Definitely. I used to be a Jehovah Witness and the thought of "You're not supposed to be with anyone who isn't a Jehovah Witness, and you need JW friends" made sense but was stupid to me. I'd have been excluding hella people I liked being around over a religious belief. And imagine finding a person you really like but you find out they don't share your religion. You just gonna "lmao gtfoh"?

No, because that's against by religious belief.

For a long term relationship, differences in values like that will probably inevitably be a problem. But I imagine it would depend on how strongly each person holds their beliefs. For short term dating, it probably doesn’t matter at all.

It's okay to do it, but you should do it with the awareness that it could make for a rocky relationship. Ultimately, ideals like 'couples with any different set of beliefs will get along' are just that, ideals. And many relationships don't measure up to ideals.

It's a great question. I might but it doesn't seem like a good idea.

I want someone to help me grow in my faith since my faith means everything to me, and I need to have my children baptized and raised as Catholics so our conflicting views could cause trouble in that regard.

I'm not interested in dating that isn't ordered toward marriage so if the relationship wouldn't allow this, I wouldn't want to waste our time.

I'm not religious, but I have a preference, I won't date any woman who is Muslim (maximal priority degree, 'no Muslims'), Buddhist, Orthodox Christian, Orthodox Jewish, Mormon and depending on how religious is the person, only then, I welcome the rest with open arms.

I'm a very selective person, even for beliefs.

No. My faith means everything to me, I want to marry somebody who has shares that same ideology and help me to glorify God in our marriage.

Before I turned to faith, I dated others who didn’t share my religious beliefs or those who weren’t religious at all, and every time it turned into some kind of turmoil (lustful relationships, emotional ties, etc) that resulted in the relationship falling.

I dislike it when someone says, "my faith means everything to me." It's insulting, especially if you're in a relationship with someone who you love. I've heard it from my father so many times, that it became obvious whenever he wasn't around.

Yeah, I replied because your post is very ironic. That's it, really.

Tbh, I've dealt with this situation multiple times. I'm not a child!

For short term dating, sure. When it comes to long term dating however (marriage becomes a possibility), it depends. As an atheist who has accepted the fact that there is no God, I would still be okay with dating someone who believes in fairytales on one condition: They don't try to force it on any children we may have in the future. If we do have children, they must adhere to facts and science. I wouldn't be happy with my children believing in fairytales. Considering that the majority of theists would try to convince young impressionable children to believe in fairytales, it's unlikely I would be in a long term relationship with any theist.
