Dating a sikh woman
Honestly, I feel like these are questions you should directly address it to him.This is his job, and the fact that you both have known each other for almost a decade (am I right?Either he isn't showing his friends that he values your relationship, or his friends are rude.I didn't ask him all this questions right away because I didn't want to be rude but the next time I saw him, he couldn't answer any of my questions.I chose to not be disrespectful because I love him, but I do have so many questions. " I didn't ask him all this questions right away because I didn't want to be rude but the next time I saw him, he couldn't answer any of my questions.He takes a lot of pride in being Sikh but yet can't explain things like: -why he doesn't eat meat on days he goes to the temple -why can't he buy a car during the time you are remembering the dead -why his friends don't say hi or even look at me when we run into them or ever (school, birthday parties, graduations etc)And that's just to name some examples. He just said "i don't know I just do it" 😳We've been talking about getting married for most of this year and although the idea does bring me joy it also concerns me.And,yes, you are supposed to eat the sweet you got at the temple.
No Sikh scripture asks Sikhs to "go vegetarian" for a period of time. He needs to learn about Sikhism before he asks you to do anything.He also needs to wake up and realize communication is key, and that expecting you to go to Gurdwara without any preparation of what to expect is unfair to you.If you or him have questions about Sikhism, I would be happy to discuss it with you.sounds to me like he's a punjabi guy practicing a fusion of sikhism/hinduism (eg the 2 days no-meat thing is typically out of respect for hanuman ganesh), similar to the car sales thing (around this time it's shrādh and a generally inauspicious time for big life decisions)I'd comment since I am a Mexican woman with a Sikh BF, except I am figuring out my BF is not really Sikh like he told me. ETA: maybe i should have put "boyfriend" since everything is up in the air. I definitely plan on seating down with him to discuss all of this.Baptized Sikhs are vegetarian, and most non-baptized Sikhs eat meat. We do NOT believe in ritual, nor do we believe in superstition, which is also why the car situation is odd.As far why his friends don't say hi to you, that is concerning.
