    Okay, so I met this girl through a friend at uni. I'm not ridiculously shallow (maybe I am) but there were things about her that just made me not attracted to her. 1) She had a lot of dark hair on the side of her face, almost like sideburns. 2) She has abnormally large teeth. 3) Pretty large chin. 4) Large earlobes.

    No, I am not perfect and yes I do have my own faults. However, none of the faults I listed above remotely bother me now. I genuinely like this girl, a lot. However, due to her religion, we can't have a relationship more than being friends. So I'm not quite sure where to go with this. I have to get over her in that sense, so I keep reminding myself of her faults but It doesn't work. We're going out on Wednesday to watch A Fault in Our Stars (cringe), and I'm really looking forward to it, but I feel like I shouldn't. What should I do?

    how devout is she to her religion, what age are you two and how long has this religion hindered pseudo-relationship gone on for?

    Why do you feel so guilty about not being attracted to someone? It isn't your choice. You make it sound here like going out with people you are attracted to is evil and wrong and makes you a bad person.

    It's more so her parents than her, but she doesn't plan on going against it any time soon. We're both 20 and we've been friends for 3 years now.

    I haven't really asked. But whenever we're together we always laugh and have a great time. She's called me attractive in the past too.

    I'd say find out first. Then ask me again.
