I'm dating a great Christian guy. He is Anglican. I feel worried that it will bother him that I'm agnostic. Sometimes I feel like I don't believe in God at all. I guess I just have never been that religious. I feel so alone. I love this guy and I'm afraid he will break up with me over this. I once told a guy I dated that I struggle with my faith and he broke up with me. I feel so hurt and betrayed by Christians. They preach love but it's all conditional. I feel like maybe all Christians will act this way. What sucks is that I have fallen in love with one. Any advice?
As a former Anglican I can attest to the comparative liberalness of the tribe but in the end I think the core differences between a “believer” and the other will eventually cause more friction than you may want in a very serious relationship. Just an assumption on my part… every situation is it’s own ballgame, so to speak. Good luck.
You're "dating" a religious person?
You need to sit down and have a serious talk with him
You might have found a great lover...but you didn't find a person who thinks like you....
...and that's so important.
HippyChick58 sums it up well...IMO.
Here's two memes for you to "think about"
You're very young, keep looking around for someone who shares your worldview or lack thereof. Now is the time to be checking out lots of potential partners to find just the right fit. Being alone is good, it gives you space to figure out who you are. If you're afraid he will break up with you it shows you can feel the unbalance in the relationship. A good relationship will give you confidence. And yes, Xian love is conditional, essentially do it my way. You deserve better.
If you’re important to him he will make room for you to be comfortable in his life. If he’s important to you, you will make room for his religion in your life. Compromise is possible. If both of you can’t compromise on something as silly as religion, it’s not going to work out anyway.
