Imagine if all the men in the world weighed over pounds and acted like slobs. Whenever you're down or lonely, read the yellow bits. I know that when we have children I will be doing most of the work. This is because they gave up the structure of what made them desirable in the first place. But I wish he would call or text me or maybe make a sweet gesture every once in awhile. All I can do is have Faith in Him. I let people assume what they will. After his mission he lost faith on everything for some reasons. I think the LDS have been vastly over-simplifying that doctrine. In some cases you can just simply live together with differing religions.
Before I would just take things as they came, internalize them, be miserable about it but not voice my concern in fear of being told that I can't handle his lifestyle.
My wife is living proof that they CAN be worth it. This I knew before we married and accepted. If your heart longs for children, a family and love- why should you stop yourself holding out for some mystical Mormon man to swoop you off your feet. That being said, there are some facets of the religion that you should be aware of that will influence how she approaches both you and the relationship. Did you ask him to drop you off and he refused, or were you hoping he'd think of it himself. Otherwise you risk having an awkward mix between dating and hanging out, which can be uncomfortable for those involved. I love him dearly with all of my heart.

There's no way a TBM is dating you if she knows about your Lucifer kick. It's winter here and I figured she was layering for warmth. He was not a prominent man in the church. Wow, every word resonates. Iam 24, my bf going to move to Troy NY for his master he ask me to move with him, I want to but Iam afraid we will never get married. You must either really love blue balls, or else she is not a real deal Mormon girl. If she says that the mission was the greatest experience and best two years of her life, any chance you have at a normal long-term healthy relationship is dim unless you convert.
If all you are looking for is some non-serious dates to have a good time, you should be fine. Some other times I admire myself and ask God for help. Mormons defintely play by a different rule set. I'm approaching my 40th birthday and realizing, if anything happens, I will have to plan it myself.
