Quantum: piece of advice that may or may not be useful (not mine, I got it from a wise person): When two people from different backgrounds stay together for a long period of time, one must remember that you will get more like you, and she will get more like her. In other words, when people of different backgrounds are young, they'll probably get along well enough, but as we get older, we get more set in our ways and it'll be harder to ignore certain things or accept others, ya know?
 
But it kinda sucks how all the girls you like end up being religious. If I were you I'd want a label taped to their backs saying, "I'm religious, don't date." Haha.

PB: Yes. Yes it is. I'm hopeful that this one might work out though. We'll see.
 
DrBug: Yeah, I had a weekly thing going at my highschool last year as an RA, but now that I'm in college its a thing of the past. It went pretty well though.

Hello, mes amis. :)
 
I'm alive, in case anyone was wondering. I had tonsillitis for a couple weeks (which completely exhausted me) and then final exams (also exhausting) so I haven't been up to posting much.
 
Too bad you fell for another religious girl, Quantum. :/
But are you sure she's religious? I know you said that she goes to a Catholic school, but that doesn't necessarily mean she's Catholic. I go to a Catholic school and I am clearly not Catholic and I know that quite a few of my classmates aren't either (there was even a Wiccan in my class for a while).
Maybe it's different in the States, though. From what I understand, Catholic schools here in Canada are publically-funded and (besides Mass, retreats, and Religion class) they're pretty much like a public school, so they may have more non-Catholics than a Catholic school in the States.
Anyways, whatever her beliefs, I hope it works out in the end. My boyfriend is Christian, but his beliefs are still very different from mine, so I can empathize with your dilemma.
 
Poet:
I commented on your poem, so you can see what I thought of it there. :)
 
God bless. ♥

half.note: I know she is at least somewhat religious because she is also looking at catholic colleges (she's a senior in high school now). However, as you mention, I do still have a bit of hope in this particular case because I think catholics in general (for better or for worse depending on your perspective) are more likely to be okay with dating an atheist/agnostic as opposed to, say, a southern baptist, which was the faith of the first girl I had this problem with.

Quantum: on a general note from personal experience, I think Catholics are more okay with dating people from backgrounds different from their own, as you mentioned. I have a few friends with parents with one Catholic and the other mixed backgrounds...so yeah. Mission: be possitive for Quantum, here.

Roman Catholics are definitely more tolerant than other Christian sects. At least in my experience, they approach agnosticism/atheism with more fascination than condemnation. It's a novel thing for them that someone should live godless. And half.note has a point: she might not be that religious either. I have friends in an all-boys Catholic school that'd make zealots cringe. God help you though if she drags you to mass. (Sorry if I pricked any Catholics!) They're dreadfully long and boring. Oh, and Catholics have a deep affinity with saints, so expect a parade of idols.

Guise: That's the only really devout Catholics that are glued to saints, though. Your average Catholic might mention them occasionally.

Dafaq happened o.O;
 
"at this point I'm thinking a religious revelation of some sort and my subsequent conversion would really help my romantic life because there is definitely a trend here."
 
idk why i found that specific sentence hilarious XD Also idk how I missed that entire thing :/
 
Tangential input though, I've talked to my boyfriend maybe twice about religion, he's Christian but I don't think any specific denomination. Also, he doesn't believe he.ll, which is interesting. 
 
Back on topic, I do hope things work out this time for you Quantum. Also that really is an interesting trend XD I didn't even think that could be a trend, but I don't know things.

Flo: I'm glad you find it amusing :P
 
And I'm actually hopeful that this will work out. We haven't discussed religion yet, and I'm going to try and avoid that conversation until we can have it in person (she's in NC, and I'm back at college now), but as long as that doesn't end up being too big of an issue for her things should be good. So, *fingers crossed*
