Can an atheist and a devout religious person have a real love connection, and intimacy without one of them hiding there true beliefs. I'm an atheist, and unfortunately I seem to be attracted to and attract religious women.

I am a staunch atheist and I had a very interesting relationship with a born-again Christian. I suggested to her to just think of evolution as a divine creation.
She tried a few times to drag me along to some meetings with her sect …
She had a bible in every corner of every room … she lived in a tiny house … still more than 12 biblically decorated corners interesting detail: behind every corner there was a stash of dope. Apparently it says somewhere in the bible to make good use of all the herbs. … turn them into holy shit. ... Hallelujah!!!


25 years, till death parted us, me the atheist and him a Presbyterian. Sometimes made for great and loud discussions, but the love connection held up. I think the issue is this; if you are an atheist and that is all you are and she is devoutly religious and that is all she is, then you are flat people and the connection will eventually fade, but if you are both people with many facets to your personalities, religious belief being just one, and you are tolerant of the differences, I think it can make for an interesting and lively relationship. Personally, I never wanted to be someone who regrets the road not followed.

Nicely put, thank you.


The men I am attracted to tend to be religious too. :/ It is difficult finding Latino/black guys that are not religious, especially if they are immigrants or kids of immigrants. grrr

That is my problem, I'm a Black Atheist, and Black Women look at me like I have two heads.I have dated outside my race with better results.


Propose a threesome. If they go for it, then maybe.

Possible if she isn't too religious avoid evangelical Christians at all costs

19 years with a baptist,but a social liberal.You do need to find compramises-going to the grandkid's Xmas church concerts, sitting through grace at the relatives, etc. And no, it wasn't the religious split that killed the marriage.


I agree both can if they are upfront and do not try to change each other’s beliefs. There are lots of Jewish and Muslim people married in happy relationships. They have rose above the crowd and love each for whom they are and what the rest of the world thinks. They really do not care. All in ones attitude and openness I think

How much respect could you give a conservative Christian in the long run? For me, intellectual banter is necessary in a relationship. I've become too opinionated to tolerate irrational claims and beliefs, especially ones that lead to discriminatory policies.


I couldn't do it. I would worry about permanent damage from all the eye rolling.

I agree wholeheartedly, although some do it.

@ToolGuy Well, you can include my marriage in that statistic! 😂


I mean, you're not asking if it will work out so yes, love and intimacy are definitely still possible.

If you are a full atheist that can explain why you are an atheist, and the other is religious and firm in her beliefs, then, I think it won't work.


There have been several occasions , where a man who did not attend a church , decided , when we got together , that he should take me to what ever church he adhered to . In my opinion it was less a matter of his belief , and more a matter of a stronger authority to tell me how he wanted me to act = submissive , obedient , stupid .

Real love in unconditional... So I say yes, they can...


You may be a god, it would explain the phenomenon

Tooreen Level 7 June 21, 2019

In my opinion no.

It can happen only as long as the lust is strong. It can make you blind.

It is like... "Nobody is ugly after 2 am."
