Edit: And quick update to the most recent date topic on this thread. I found out the reason she hadn't been responding is that "I've been wondering a lot of things lately. Like for one: Are you a Christian?"
The real question: Is her asking that a deal breaker?

No. But my answer was...for her.

Meaning my answer of "I don't know what I am" was a problem for her. As a result, we are no longer speaking.

Well if you not being Christian is a deal breaker for her then you're probably better off without her. Aside from not getting laid anyway.

The proper answer there was "I was raised Lutheran". Lutheranism being the vanilla of Christianity and "was raised" giving you latitude to outwardly embrace/ignore the faith to meet the needs of the other party.

Write it down for next time.

Saying that you're Catholic is a great excuse for ignoring anything about religion that takes effort. Some protestants will look at you as though you sprouted horns when you say it, though.

Well, that's just it. "Catholic" carries baggage. No one cares about Lutherans. Plus, being Catholic takes way more effort than being Lutheran.

I'm with you on the baggage, but I'm not so sure "being Catholic" takes more effort that "being Lutheran". Maybe more than "was raised Lutheran", though.

I mean, it's one of those things where you can go to church less often than VGCats is updated and still be considered a fairly regular member.

That would be essentially every mainstream Christian denomination. I mean, sure, there's towns or neighborhoods where you might get called out for not showing up but, again, there's neighborhoods where you'll be called out for not attending Mass.

Purely anecdotal, but I'd disagree. Lutherans are incredibly dull people, but stereotypically industrious. Doing work for the church was considered just as important as doing the work of the church. My church had a lot of work days, and while some of it charitable work a good portion was just cleaning and maintaining the church. Made our own stain glass window, did our own roofing, and after I left the congregation built a new wing. Then there were the meetings. I there's anything those people could claim to love more than a god it was bureaucracy.

Prairie Home Companion's jokes about Lutherans seem to be in the same direction: boring, hardworking people.

Yea I dunno. We're still talking and going out for dinner and drinks/dancing Friday night so who knows at this point. I'm about 99% sure she knows I'd be down for a relationship. So I don't know if your statement is accurate. To be continued....

I'm just glad I never did the confirmation classes, so there's still some plausible dependability there if necessary.

I got confirmed. Not technically in the eyes of god I suppose as I'd never gotten baptized, but the church didn't know that.

Ha, perhaps. We ended up talking/hanging out quite a bit after my last post. Seeings that we've been dating for about 3 months now I foolishly told her that I loved her the other day. She didn't say she didn't, but she didn't say she did. Haven't really talked much since. Perhaps we can finally close this thread. Smiley: smile

Hah, not even close.

Until she comes here and starts posting what an *** you are, and we learn that she's cheating on you with Kuwoobie, and then a three-way forum battle ensues and you steal her lap-top and we all get to pick sides and heckle you and then when all is said and done she goes off and marries the Kuwoobie and makes pokemon babies.

Then when she decides she really loves you and not the Kuw and comes running back into your arms and you have big hugs and tears and become the surrogate dad to Kuwoobie's offspring.....then you have a story.
