When I entered into my last relationship, my girlfriend was agnostic, and before her, I was ambivalent toward the religion of the people I dated. We had been together a few years, and in the end, things didn't work out. Just recently, I've decided to get back into the dating scene (ugh), and I realize that my Atheism is a bit of a liability in that respect. I know most people, when questioned about what they notice first in the opposite (or same where applicable) sex, folks usually say eyes or something. I however, go straight for the neck, searching for any signs of a cross, and to be quite honest, I'm sick of acting like a damn vampire, throat ogling, and fleeing in terror from the crucifix.
Thing is, I wouldn't be opposed to dating someone of faith, depending on how hung up they are on the subject. I also suppose I'm lucky to live in Massachusetts, where the whole ordeal is easier than in Kansas, or for that matter, Israel or Iran.
So my question is, how do/have you folks deal/dealt with it? Is the person you're dating/married to of faith? If so, are there compromises? I know there's been some mention in other threads about how children are raised in these circumstances.
I'm curious to hear everyone's take on the subject.
