Atheist dating a religious girl
It’s a fact that I am out of the dating pool, but there are times when I look at the current swimmers and notice certain patterns that make it hard for one group of people versus another.
One such group are the agnostic and atheist black men.
If you’ve been paying attention, you know that African American culture is very much of the church in more ways than one – especially women (nods at Tyler Perry).
This isn’t to say that ALL black women are bible beaters because as a group black women are a million times more diverse than the media presents.
But in the dating pool it can seem very one dimensional for a young man…
If you are anything but a Christian and you are into American black women, I am going to go out on a limb and say that it is quite an obstacle to get around the giant holy elephant in the room staring and wondering when she will bring up denomination and your “faith”. Well recently I spoke to one of my good friends who is a black man that actively dates black women (not exclusively) to ask him about this very thing.
Actually most women know that 60% of black women attend church while only roughly 20% of black men do.
So most of them don’t try to push it on you if you are a good prospect for them.
I treat people well and try to help others, if that isn’t enough then I guess I am doomed.” “Whew at least you believe in God”.
Of course, if the chick is open minded then usually I have found they aren’t as into it as they claim.
