I was just asked the same question and am struggling with an answer. Spiritual for me does not necessary mean religion, and I am trying to word my answer in a way that will not disqualify me from getting the pussy.

"match" as in fight or as in "match made in heaven"?

Yeah, I thought you meant like a 1 one 1 match. Not fighting, but more like a spiritual questioning

If we are talking debate, I will rather go up against a 5 Percenter or NOI cat. They are the most fun, and stick to their guns. I have sonned Christians of all stripes because they aren't used to talking to people that are more pliant.

Could you be in a relationship with someone who did not believe in a higher power? And define higher power. Does it have to be a god(s), or could it be something else?

But since I am Black, and am pretty much only attracted to sisters and Latinas, I have to walk that fine line when it comes to religion and her hotter cousin spirituality.

Personally, I don't think I could be in a relationship with someone who didn't believe in a higher power. It's fine to not believe in God or multiple Gods or whatever.....but that's where it stops. The Earth, space, people on Earth.....it's always evolving. Everything was put on this earth to evolve. If you don't believe something was/is behind it......then why are we here,what's our purpose,and what is your explanation as to how everything came about? Seems to me the chick and I would butt heads constantly.

Most Black dudes I know aren't atheist (come to think of it....never met one lol) and the majority are either Christian or Muslim/5%....as you could probably guess. I bet it makes for some great discussions....

There are more Black atheists than you think. A lot of us just don't Evangelize like our 2520 counterparts who like to beat people over the head with how much they don't believe in God(s) and how enlightened they are because of it. My grandfather never believed in God, but my grandmother was devout. He paid lip service to her faith, they had 6 kids, and lived a happy life.

i don't think there is such thing as an ideal spiritual match. i've dated females of various religions and beliefs, and end of the day as long as i respected their beliefs and where they came from, it didn't really affect our relationship in any capacity. the last girl i dated had the most bizarre beliefs: she had this thing with feathers where she thought they would appear under her pillow/around her in certain situations. while i thought the whole thing was pretty crazy - and let her know that i did not believe in any of that sort of stuff - i showed her respect and it did not pose a problem.
