RE: 17 and confused
Handle it the same you would if you were two different religions. You accept each other and not try to change the other person.

Who knows, he might have his doubts. Being active in a church doesn't mean much, really.

Now if he says things that make you feel bad or want to hide who you are....that's different.

In any event Hug

Try to find the boundaries of that particular topic in your relationship, and depending on the reaction when one toes that line, adjust accordingly. Love the person, not his beliefs. If I may suggest, always be true to yourself. But compromise when necessary. Shy

Anyway. If it's becoming an issue... best is to talk it over with him, IMO.

Sorry. I just realized that was fence sitting at it's best. Laughat Allow me to bust the fence.
