Whether or not a drink is a date is also highly debatable but the point I want to make is that we Catholics don’t seem to go out with each other much.
Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to date a Catholic girl.
It was also important to me that my future spouse had the same beliefs about marriage and the roles of spouses. But when it comes to deciding to date a non-Catholic, maybe take some time to answer these questions.

Either way there’s nothing absolutely wrong with that.
I was not willing to date casually and constantly wonder whether he was faithful to me and our relationship. We remained committed to one another and that meant always and every time coming to the table and resolving our conflicts. He never expressed interest in converting while we were dating and his mom was a bit wary, but he always respected that I was and always will be Catholic.
It was important to me that dating was considered a pre-cursor to marriage and not just a way to “rack ‘em up”. I went through a crisis of faith in college, but he would encourage me to pray about it.

All of these boys were Catholic—either practicing or, at least, culturally Catholic. I figured, I’d meet some Catholic boy eventually, have the Catholic wedding, and have the Catholic babies and that’d be it. At eighteen, I moved away for college and planned on focusing on school, having some fun, and getting into dental school. We spent about three months going on dates, spending time together, meeting each other’s friends, and getting to know one another. He did not shy away from that label and he proudly called me his girlfriend. He looks up to his father and has a loving and devoted relationship to his mother. He did not talk disrespectfully to his mother and he sought advice from his father. Even when we were upset or mad or hurt, we took the time to hear one another out. Early on, he would come to Mass with me and I would go to church with him. If I were not able to talk about my faith or if I never was able to share it with him, I do not think we would have stayed in a relationship.
