I met a guy at an art show, and we ended up exchanging contact information, spoke on a few occasions, and ended up hanging out again. This is great news, he’s attractive and seems very nice.
So, while we were hanging out we were discussing something and I ended up asking what religion he follows. He said he was a Catholic and attends church twice a week. I guess that’s considered devout.
I’m an Atheist. I was raised Catholic. I’m really open minded and don’t mind his religion at all. I love all types of people regardless of beliefs. Every time I encounter a person from a different background or with different beliefs I see it as a learning opportunity. I also find that it’s really important to meet different people. So, I’m completely fine with his opinions. I’m not looking to have cut-throat debates.
However, I’m not sure if he would be fine with it. I haven’t told him about it yet, mostly because I’m not sure whether I should wait until he gets to know me better (not sure how it is with most catholics, but my family gives atheists a negative connotation =/) or just do it straight out, as soon as possible, so he knows.
So I guess I’m looking for is:
a) What would you do if you found out a girl you know/possibly like is an atheist
b) should I tell him immediately or wait until he gets to know me better.
c) will his parents hate my guts and think I’m the devil. I’m a really nice girl, I promise!
