I must admit that this life comes with a lot of surprises. There are all kinds of Mormons, and we as exmormons should know better than to stereotype our former selves. Here's my advice though: It doesn't sound like you want that though, so you're going to have to talk to him. I would need to ask my husband again.
Think about what you want in a relationship. It means that before anything else, you have to be clear in saying that you want to date a Mormon girl. This also means giving her something specific to do. A couple of things I run into most is that people assume I am also Mormon. So that's something I can't say is good or bad. No lie he was one of the kindest human beings I've metbut I was afraid of getting deeper into the relationship, so I ended it. However, and this might sound sad. I am a non-Mormon woman married to a Mormon manвwhich seems to be a less common scenario in the LDS world. Consider a mix of activities that are inexpensive, and allow you to talk and learn about one another. You should not be trying to be exclusive with one person, so go on dates with as many people as you can.

Religious affiliation is not the only criteria when selecting a spouse. Mine was in California, back in the 70s. The scriptures say that one of the main reasons good people don't join the church is because they just haven't been introduced to it.
Some day he hopes to make it to Romania and settle down. I'm firmly in the RUN camp. Thank you so much for your blog and for the accompany comments to this entry. I don't drive and we live far away from our family. Sometimes I often think he is a wrong choice. If it's the latter then you may need to be more direct and take initiative. Children thrive on clarity and consistency. It is not the norm. I realize that the answers to many of these questions may be different for every family, and that we need to continue to discuss them more as a couple as we continue to think about our future. My fiance is a surgeon.
