We attempted to date back when I was in undergrad and he was in med school, and it went nowhere -- mostly because I was young, immature, self-centered and your typical spazzy college kid at that point. I hope he wised up. Life will chuck all sorts of bouncers at you. But honestly, after putting so much time and money into something, not doing their absolute best and putting time and effort into it just isn't something people are apt to do even if they do like you If you can't be cool with getting what you can get now, I would consider there are plenty of things that might not change setting them loose.
What do you do while they are away. It seems like mormons in particular are even more crazy than the majority of crazy religious people, and the manipulation and treatment of people who wish to think for themselves and challenge their beliefs is really frightening. I've been thinking more about your situation and another thing came to mind.
But of course this does not mean that mixed religion children cannot grow up to be LDS stalwarts. In response to your comment about being with that creative director think all relationships have problems. There is no question that God loves all of His children, and that obviously includes non-members. I was actually just talking to my husband about that the other day, at first he said that it depressed him when I said that, but really, it helps. I believe rules are to be obeyed. I dated non mormon men. It would be ludicrous to think otherwise.
I am engaged to a doctor who will complete his residency in 2 years. LDSdotOrg is mostly propaganda. Some days there is so much pain that I can barely type. This woman is a human being, not a caricature of a TBM. I'm so glad you mentioned some of the things that I have been suggesting to my boyfriend for some time, but he has been skeptical about.
