After many years of being single and everyone having the common experience of not dating anyone from church, it's bound to come up. Should you date a non-Christian if the opportunity arises? What if I said yes?
Let's face it, after a few years of not having a boyfriend and having only 2 dates from church in 10 years, I found myself saying yes to going out with a non-Christian.
I've often stated that there is a certain kind of man I find irresistable. Jerks? No! Nerds! It's all about nerdy guys for me. Not all have been a comfortable fit for dating. Some have given me nightmares with their lack of social skills. But, I've always been interested in intelligent guys. When I met a man whose mother was a classical anthropologist, I thought perhaps this guy might have interests I might enjoy. So I said yes. And I'm having a great time
I don't want to get into all the Biblical directives. This last Friday I went out with a friend of mine from church who I have had a crush on for years. I still like him. He suitably nerdy, sweet, and loves music. But the reality of it is that he doesn't seem to have girlfriends at all. And as much as I like him, he's not really doing anything.
Do I recommend going out with just any non-Christian? No. But I find it hard to say no to someone whose company I enjoy when none of my Christian guy friends seem to be doing anything. Maybe if they see that I'm dating other people, one of them will want to ask me out if it doesn't work out.
You should only date a man who shows he cares about you - Christian or not. I've gone out with a few alleged Christians who treated me like crap. Remember Astro, the alleged Presbyterian? Clash of the Pet Peeves Or Dude, the Greek Orthodox? MA in Theology with an Emphasis in Being a Jerk
