I am 20 years old, and have been friend with this girl for 8 years now. We are very good friends, and have a lot of fun when we hang out with each other. Well, over the years, I can say that I fell in love with her about 6 years ago. I was kind of jealous as she dated a few other guys throughout the years we have been friends. Well, about 2 years ago, I thought I was over her because I knew nothing would happen and we were drifting apart a bit. Unfortunately, we now hang out once every couple of months, and everytime I see her, I go back to the way I was, madly in love with her. She is single now, but I don't know how to do anything about it. She knows how I felt a few years ago. The biggest issue is we have one MAJOR difference that is a big one to ever overcome. She is very religious (goes to a Christian college and majors in Bible study.), and I am borderline atheist. Despite that, I would still love to pursue a relationship. I have not had any meaningful relationships in my life, because I am so hung up on her. What should I do? I can see myself marrying this girl... How do I try to pursue it, or get over it?
