Only time will tell whether your date is truly spiritually autonomous. If you are wondering about your date’s spiritual autonomy, no amount of protestations of commitment and spiritual fervor will give you the assurance you need, without the ingredient of time. Don’t rush if you are concerned about this issue.

His relationships never worked. Either the woman believed him, and he felt unknown, or she saw through him, and he felt condemned. He met a woman he really liked, and, after seeing her for some time, decided to take a risk.
