I am dating a muslim guy
I find myself in a hard situation with a Muslim man I love.
I write because I don’t have resources within the Muslim community and would love that perspective.
But he doesn’t know what will happen with his country and situation, so I understand that too. I am beginning to realize that this love may be an impossible hope for me…and maybe there are aspects of his faith that limit him too much to even consider a longer term, more serious relationship, no matter how liberal he seems.
You should also realize that “being in love” is not considered a prerequisite to marriage in Islam. [/h] Another thing to consider is your own feelings about Islam.
That is not to say that your Muslim friend doesn’t care about you or even love you, but it isn’t necessary. Please do not make the mistake of assuming that religion is a minor detail– Islam is never minor.
From the beginning it has been clear that there are obstacles to our being together and we kept it very casual and light, but in the past few months we have become much, much closer and he expressed his love for me, and now I have allowed myself to love him very dearly also.
However, what just happened a couple hours ago brought our true situation very present to me.
