Prepare to be love-bombed. ; They will be so lovey dovey and nice to you, and try to steer you around to their "witnessing" mode, hell, you are a captive audience for those short on their field service time for the month! ; And I love jgnat's suggestions, kinda evil like myself. ; However I have to warn you as nice as they can/will be to your face, they will do everything possible to break you up if they think you are too evil for their son, brother, cousin, etc.
Good luck. ; I wouldn't go with a JW for all the money in the world. ; You are a brave lady.
Heh heh heh, they can love-bomb me all they want to, I'm immune to it. That's part of having low self-esteem, it makes you question a person's motives for expressing interest and especially love, and besides, I've heard lots of stories on this board about how love-bombing works, they won't get to me.
I also won't be engaging in any discussions about religion, that's a can of worms that I wouldn't want to open with traditional Christian family, much less a family full of JWs. There are only two things that I won't argue about, and those are politics and religion. And from what I can gather here, unless you agree with everything they say, there's no sense in talking religion with a bunch of JWs, they're too brainwashed to think outside the box.
If they like me, fine, if they think I'm evil, fine, it doesn't bother me what they think. The only thing that matters to me is what my boyfriend thinks. Sure, I'd like for his family to like me, but if they don't, then it's their loss. And if what they think of me has a serious effect on what my boyfriend thinks of me, then he's not worth my time. If he decides that he doesn't like me because his family doesn't approve of me, then maybe he doesn't deserve me anyway. Harsh but true.
Heh, I wouldn't call dating a JW "brave", I'd call it foolhardy. I'm out of my mind, dating a JW, I should never have bothered, but alas, once again, I'm listening to my heart, not my head, and so I find myself in this situation. I have a sneaking suspicion that this relationship isn't going to end well, but that's a chance I'm willing to take. I'm hooked on my guy and if it leads to heartbreak, so be it. Part of me tells me to get out while I can, but I can't just drop this without knowing how it ends, it's like reading a book and skipping the last chapter. Maybe I'm just a glutton for punishment.
Brave, no. Stupid, yes.
