I am worried that I am not going to end up in the same place as he in terms of religion.

I do not want to be blinded by any feelings I may have for him.

When we liberal converts begin an orthodox conversion, we all seem to think we're crazy to be going from a liberal movement to orthodoxy. I had the great pleasure to meet with an amazing rabbi who has worked with many converts.

He estimated that 60% of the converts he had met were originally converted through another movement.

I grew up Reform and am now trying to learn more about being observant. He appreciates that I am taking classes to learn more, and am willing to advance slowly in terms of observance.Personally, I would place the number at 2/3 (66% for you math-challenged types), but I think he would have a more educated opinion! My guess is that many are already considered Jewish by other movements, either through patrilineal descent or a maternal liberal conversion prior to birth. But then again, I have an unnatural love of statistics.Why do so many orthodox conversion candidates have a prior Jewish conversion? I started in an orthodox community, and then since I felt I couldn't measure up to orthodox standards, landed in a liberal community.1) Remember to look in the mirror before leaving the kitchen.2) Tznius magnets will help you remember not to wear anything with color in it. 4) Do not stand under street lights, lest your sex become illuminated.
