I have a brother and I thank God for him because he's one of the best things in my life and he's my biggest protector, but there's something about just wanting to have a sister. Whether they are your step, half, blood or a really close friend they feel like family. The thing is you don't get to choose your family, and you really don't get to choose who your parents marry and who becomes your new siblings.
Not just my step-sister, my best friend.

I'm not so sure. I am a non Mormon. You should certainly still date even if you are not looking for a marriage partner. The church didn't do it to her but it helped create the environment that allowed it to happen. Tough to say what will impact your girl most - but there's your best LDS. She seems to be ok with that, and wants to continue our relationship, and also talks about wanting marriage and children, and raising those children to be mormon like her even if I'm not religious. If you marry her, you're marrying into a cult, a mild cult as far as cults go, but a cult nonetheless. She will likely want you to convert to fix the family. That thing literally never shuts up. Is this a sign of my own weakness.
