If the topic has come up, yes.  It seems to me you have no long term interest in her and just want to bed her.  To that end, you are withholding information - ei lying by omission.  You are behaving like an ass.

How are you totally honest, sort-of-ish? Either you are or you are not.

Would you tell her the truth if you thought she was not cute? This has little to do with HER and much to do with YOU. Yes, it's wrong - a lie of omission is still a lie if the omitted information is relevant. Under the circumstances, this certainly is relevant.

I won't go quite so far as to say you are behaving like an ass (yet) - but you sure are considering doing so.

Let me put it this way... it's a good thing being lesbian isn't by choice, otherwise with that suave you're rockin' Don Juan, I predict another member coming to play on my team.

Just take Jag's advice and don't be a dick, k'?

The cosmos is also within us. We are made of star stuff.

The only thing bigger than the universe is humanity's collective sense of self-importance.

I have. Either they were a C&E type Christian(and I knew it wasn't any long term to it) or they were a Pagan. I could be in a long term relationship with any brand of theist that does not have a religious doctrine requiring I believe, you to proselytize, or a doctrine of hell.

If the being you supposedly love is supposed to torture me, and you're fine with that, that's a deal breaker.

So reformed not very religious Jews and Pagans are fine.
An Omnipowerful God needed to sacrifice himself to himself (but only for a long weekend) in order to avert his own wrath against his own creations who he made in a manner knowing that they weren't going to live up to his standards.

And you should feel guilty for this. Give me money.

I hate to say it, but the way you've written your post screams that you know it's wrong but are looking for rationalizations to help you justify that it isn't.

I could be wrong and just reading way too much into it.

Her pastor/priest/minister/bible group/some POS told her though shall not be unequally yoked WTF.

Thing is i was like most people shut up go to church occasionally, don't argue, get along with all faiths and never believed a fukin word of any of it. if i was still like that there would be no problem, i only became an anti-theist when i encountered my first dick head creationist .


hell i don't get a lot of action so i will just avoid the subject and

Drinking and posting is a hard lesson to learn.

I have dated two or three theists, by my count. It lasted quite a while. I could tell you how it worked out, too... But I won't. Sucks to be you, doesn't it?
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.

I not only dated a theist, I married her. We simply agreed to disagree. The kids went/are going to a Catholic school. I consented to never 'preach' to the kids, but did insist on always answering direct questions. My daughter would, children's bible in hand, come at me with gotchas ... and leave frustrated when I could explain all of it. My wife ended up having a bit of a revelation when she painted herself into a corner trying to explain heaven[1]. In the end, she realised that a) it made zero sense and b) she was making things up as she went along. My wife is atheist now as is my son, my daughter is bordering on deism.

Now, as it partains to eh!'s predicament. eh!, I have to concur with jdawg70 in particular. You KNOW that you're being dishonest with her. You ARE looking for our approval so that you screw her (over) and still feel good about yourself.
Be straight up with her.

Didn't go so good. Calls in without notice at my shack. 4 dogs keep her locked in car. try to make cup of tea but freshest milk in fridge was out of date in 2010. Did not like wild goat heads curing on stakes in yard. the feral cat skins drying on the fence ...not so much.

Go to neighbour to get fresh milk. she decides my male fukin lunatic dog was now wanting to make friends i get back from neighbour she is crying, male pissed all over her and had her pinned to wall in a bear hug humping her .


i was too scared to get dog off.....i know my dog when he gets in that mood with a lady.


called her brother to come get her.


never even bought up religion once which was a positive.
