Dating someone with religious differences
And yes, I have clients who value religion above all, and demand that a partner feel the same.
These are all arbitrary deal-breakers, which often serve to keep these people alone for a really long time.
I’m a big believer in searching for answers, but only where answers can be had.
Which is why I don’t spend much time worrying about how we got here or where we go when we die; nor do I obsess about why someone doesn’t like me.
The truth is, we’ll never know people’s motivations for acting. And since you’re never going to get into her head, why drive yourself nuts about it?Someone I used to be with is Catholic and recently discovered that he wants to pursue his faith more seriously.I don’t mind at all but he ultimately felt that because I don’t believe in the same thing, he’ll end up making decisions in the future based on his faith that I won’t be able to fully understand.The problem is that most of us can’t really respect when someone sees the world completely differently than we do.In order to have that strong connection we crave, we look for someone who is like-minded.
