You really shouldn't have waited so long to express the fact that you do believe in God. This is a very important topic that needs to be openly discussed before or at the beginning of any relationship, especially if you plan on getting married and spending the rest of your life with each other. You shouldn't feel scared to express you opinions and beliefs and if you do feel uncomfortable expressing yourself with your man, than there are other problems that need to be worked out as well. Relationships are 50/50 and each person should be able to be heard.

^ good comment. If you want him to respect your beliefs then it is only fair that you respect his.

That's a serious topic honestly if you believe in God then you should be with someone that also does or then you will also start losing your faith from his influence ....something to think about.

The year is 2011. Religion in a 1st world civilization is narrow-minded superstition and judging someone for not believing in your imaginary friends is just primitive thinking.

I'll admit my comment was unnecessarily harsh. I apologize not for it's content, but it's harshness.

I'm an Atheist out of choice and don't care or expect anyone to take my choices as there own. I do think all people have the right to make the decision for there own. Taking on a religion because you were presented it at a young age is like accepting arranged marriages and occupational placement due to a quiz you took in grammar school.

Simply put, if someone chooses different beliefs or lack thereof from you does not make them less or greater than you. It just makes them different. And isn't the differences that make them noticed by yourself in the first place. Mirror image personalities are impossible for the long haul, because we make several decisions constantly that will eventually skew from the others path. Some of those decisions will go unnoticed until it's too late.

Don't EVER sacrifice your beliefs, settle for anything less, or sell your soul in the name of love. God is real and he only offers eternal life to those who accept Jesus Christ as their savior. What would your future be like with this guy? Raising atheist kids? Eternity is a long time to sell your soul. You should take it very seriously.

creationists have been fighting evolutionists and atheists for years, try not to tell him too much about the genesis and all that stuff, if will kill an atheist, you know, most of them believe in evolution, try to use that in your conversation

Just tell him you believe & respect each others beliefs. Simple. If you two plan to have a future together start discussing how you two plan to work together to raise your child if you decide to have any.
