Jewish and catholic dating

On the other hand, I am so rarely attracted to anyone that when I am, I owe it to myself to see where it leads.

Only time will tell once I’m in a serious relationship how I feel about the religion aspect, but so far it’s a tertiary concern behind personality and attraction.” Too limiting “I’ve dated Jews and non-Jews.

Saying that love is not legitimate unless it is with a Jew felt the same as saying love is not legitimate unless between a man and a woman. I also know very active Jewish people from intermarried families, so ‘keeping the kids Jewish’ is not a convincing reason to date only Jews.

But by virtue of my chosen career, I am not allowed to date a non-Jew.

Man, woman, tall, short, Jewish, Muslim, those are labels that aren’t helpful to me.

What are helpful are the gray labels, the ones that fall in between black-and-white categories, the ones I understand and you might not: smart, funny, kind, generous, respectful.

I need a partner with whom I feel a sense of shared Jewish heritage, and who will join me in incorporating Jewish practices and values into our life together.” It’s not enough “I like dating Jews, but being Jewish is not enough.

Part of me feels like interracial marriage/relationships/procreation is the solution to a lot of problems by kind of dissolving everything into gray areas, and the more people in interracial couples, the faster that will happen on a societal level.” Openness “I’ve never put a limit on falling in love, at least not a clean one.However, if that can be done in a thoughtful way with a partner who is not Jewish, I am open to that.What I do know is that I want the Jewish community to be a welcoming place to all people, couples and families, regardless of origin.But I think I would be more open to dating non-Jews were it not for school.” A welcoming place I have struggled with this a lot.It is important to me to live a Jewish life and to raise my nonexistent children Jewish.
