If all you are looking for is some non-serious dates to have a good time, you should be fine. I'm so comforted by this thread. Stick around on this sub. No sex before marriage. Love the man you are going to marry- warts and all he loves yours as well. And some will do that. It is also considered disrespectful to others, as they may be uncomfortable because of your open displays.
Reading some of the post are making scared of what to expect. Well the pieces will all fall into place. I have been married to a doc for 31 years and just found out about an "emotional affair" that went on for 15 years she is a nurse.
I think our entire family feels the loneliness including himself. Seclusion has served to preserve their desirable traits, but it also makes it difficult to gain rapport. At least people of different races are aware of those differences, and are on alert to deal with them.
Maybe you do, too. You can always expand these into group dates by inviting other couples along, which may make her more comfortable in the early stages of your relationship. The church really needs to tailor to more partial LDS families, imho. Hi everyone - like you all, I have been finding it hard dating my boyfriend who is a doctor. We have family prayer every day and read the scriptures occasionally. Great post and so very true. I was thinking the same thing when I read this. Before that, you are encouraged to date, but not exclusively. No matter what anyone says. You should take your cues from your partner, not from documentaries or this sub, on whether your partner's views and actions are manipulative, brainwashy and damaging.
