Dating in your teenage years will help you learn the kinds of things you value in another person. The only thing they value it's themselves and their career. In areas with lots of single Mormons of dating and marriageable age, the Church has established singles wards. I hope this will change in the future - it would be difficult living a lifestyle like this in the long run.
You should not be trying to be exclusive with one person, so go on dates with as many people as you can. The big one is that under Mormon theology both of you must be believing, fully active members to live together in the afterlife. Early in our relationship, I gave some thought to the question of whether I would ever be willing to marry a non-Mormon. She drove an old Dodge Neon during her cash-strapped residency and fellowship. She is considered "an old maid" by Mormon standards, so she may be willing to marry you--hoping you will convert someday --but she will constantly be reminded that your marriage is inferior to the "Eternal Families" of sealed Mormons, and she will fear dying and never seeing her loved ones again.
My question is, my 30th birthday weekend is coming up and when I mentioned it to him he informed me that an old friend from college's wedding was that weekend and that he wanted to go. Then I do my own work I am a recruiter and I work remotely most of the time, which is incredibly convenient for our relationship. I knew intern year would be brutal and I hoped residency would be a little better, and it was. You join the LDS Church. Honestly, I don't have very good advice, but keep being you and hopefully she won't let her religion blind her like it blinded me. Post was not sent - check your email addresses. I am an extrovert too, I do feel lonely when my husband is not around on weekends or holidays or when I fall sick. The standard principles of day game apply. I wish I could let go of our love as easily as he has, but I just can't.
Go on your different ways as friends and don't expect your relationship to go anywhere. I admit it is sometimes depressing going to bed without him and getting up seeing him still studying but I am sure we will survive this. She will not marry you until you convert to mormonism whole cloth. Ask her right out if she is at all interested in leaving TSCC. Of course they do. I do not threaten lightly. I didn't even believe. You have given me the courage to continue to protect my marriage and children. Having read the majority of the posts, my only real comment is that "sacrifice must be appreciated by both parties". I have been known to share though because it gets on my nerves when my friends complain to me about how much money we are making Recently by some pure act of coincidence my hubby ended up with a day off on Labor day.
