Ask David: Religion and Relationships

Anonymous: “Dear David, a little while ago, I was dating a girl who left me for ‘religious reasons’. She is a Jehovah’s Witness and I am Christian. She broke up with me and then started dating an Atheist less than 24 hours later. Now, she’s broken up with him and come out as homosexual, leaving both of us confused. What should I (we) do?”

I’m not an expert on religious monogamy, but it would have been much worse if she came out as a homosexual while you two were dating. I guess the reason she broke up with you is kind of a win in this instance, right? Right? The first thing that I would say is that this girl seems to have a lot going on. The fact that she decided to go out with someone less than 24 hours after breaking up with you, and then eventually coming out as homosexual shows that. While she doesn’t want to be with you anymore, that doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with you. She might be going through a difficult time, or struggling to find acceptance for her homosexuality. Or both! If I were you, I would send her a message telling her that you are supportive, and that if she needs anything, she can let you know. Aside from that, I would lay back and keep living your life. But also note that if you are into online dating there’s Christian Mingle. It’s free! (and much safer than Farmers Only)
