Now that I'm a conservative Baha'i, I have only one good friend, who lives an hour's drive away. He's soon moving further away, a two hour's drive. He's been nothing but the best influence on me. Initially, we had no similar interests, but now, his interests are mine, and my interests are his.

My life is now much better than it was before.

These decisions can have a profound impact on our lives.


What kind of conserative? IMO, and in experience there is the mob mentality that goes along with the conservative theory.

For instance, it was ok to kill jews and other so-called inferiors to his race b/c Hitler said so.

I guess I expect that from a so-called conservative.
Whoa! That's way off the mark. Don't you honestly know that most born-again Christians believe that the Jews are God's chosen people and have to take a great part in Armageddon and the End of Days, that the redemption of sins is thru a JEW?? I'd advise you to actually read up instead of spouting ignorant statements.

Renounce it already -_-


I made the decision to stick with my religious and political beliefs.

Why does the political alignment of the person you want to date matter so much? It seems totally irrelevant to me.

Just look for a good character in a person.

Good.

I think you need to stop assuming ppl hate you b/c of your belief system imo. If they do, that's their problem not yours.

And like Khan said, I don't see why it's such a big issue as to whether or not the gal you want is liberal or conservative or watches South Park or not. Maybe if you broadened your horizons, this issue of people hating you would diminish somewhat....

You should have considered renouncing political beliefs only rather than Christianity in that case, if you felt like people would like you better, but then, maybe renouncing South Park can be another option. :p

well, the majority here are against the idea of renouncing your beliefs to please others, and yeah, it seems that it wouldn't be fair that you would have to do that and they wouldn't compromise or "sacrifice" anything in turn, although you have already made your mind of not doing that.

I think that Tim may have more success with a woman if he concentrated his efforts more on what he had to offer a woman, rather than emphasizing what he doesn't want in a woman.

Vague and confusing statements about the fact that he wants to have unconventional sex leaves a lot up to the imagination of the listener--and might scare some away. If she has the impression that you want to get involved in something really weird, it might scare her away, and then you'll never have the chance to get involved in something really weird, let alone "vanilla."

Rather than starting off insisting that a woman must go to church with you, vote the way you vote, and be obsessed with the same cartoons before you will consider her worthy, try approaching a woman who sparks your interest like this:

I think that depends on how far from the centre their views are.

For some choice is murder, for others God's work is murder.

Does America even have a centre?

Now I just hope that I can be attractive to an Aspie who is on the same wavelength as me.

There are plenty of disorders out there. Why just Asperger's?

Maybe you can find someone with an obsessive/compulsive disorder? an eating disorder? mongolism?

I'd like to find someone with social anxiety disorder or agoraphobia.

Nymphomania would be a highly useful disorder.

What do you call the disorder where you create a post by copying someone's post and appending an emoticon?

Maybe that would be useful.

Based on past experience, I do better with Aspies than with NTs. But I would still be considered unattractive to them, even if I never mentioned religion or politics.
