Do not make anything risque public. Be specific every time you ask. Don't do it girls, forget the "status" it doesn't mean jack. The church can be a very cruel place for single people. Honestly I'd let things keep going. In the end, if the guy is the keeper you say he is then go with your gut.
It's been really, really hard for my fiancee, and I don't think he would be my fiancee if I was this busy when we had met. These are things your wife may consider matter-of-fact and you may be surprised by if you don't discuss them now. Dress nicely, as the girl will appreciate the effort put into looking good for her, and encourage her to do the same. You should take your cues from your partner, not from documentaries or this sub, on whether your partner's views and actions are manipulative, brainwashy and damaging. Of course my parents love each other very much and would not choose another spouse, which is why her response caught me off guard. Even after that, the Church discourages youth from entering serious relationships before they are considering marriage. While my husband is not a doctor he does have a job that requires very odd hours a-typical of the American and works all holidays. Know that you are playing a game aka dating mormon girls that has low odds of success.
Since her father is a bishop, I'm sure he'll want to have his daughter marry a temple worthy person. You should expect that this will define your relationship with her. Thought the girl and I had a future, and we did, just not with each other I'll bet there are hundreds of boyfriend converts out there. Forget what anyone else says or expects of you.
The hardest thing is the feeling of being completely shut out. However, be careful to not ask something that may offend your date. When my nomo husband does go to church we discuss the talks. But there are a lot of women who post here who have flipped from TBM to apostate. If you were the one who did the asking, it is simply chivalrous and gentlemanly for you to pay for dinner, the movie, or whatever else you do. When missionaries come home, they are like top dog religious people. Mixed races, however, are NOT tied into opposing beliefs and mixed races don't try to "convert" each other. This includes both asking and offering assistance. A few years, maybe. He probably hates even the memory of me for getting him in that stupid church.
