So, since I have Jewish lineage and hold no outlandish metaphysical beliefs (e.g. a cracker = flesh, 1x a week) I am withholding certain personal info in this vein. The reasoning is that I want them to get to know me actually know me before dropping the J-bomb (let alone the nooutlandishmetaphysicalbeliefs-bomb). So. Here are my replies (all true. strictly speaking.) ========================== do you go to church often not as much as i probably should ========================== do you believe in god (nodding) i was raised with god ========================== do you practice pre-marital sex? (serious, head shaking) i would never do something with a girl that she wasn't comfortable with out of respect ========================== are you catholic? not yet (requires explanation) update: i caved in to my own love of causing a scene and told them everything upfront.
