Okay, so the ex-JW boyfriend and I finally broke up... and I am not really looking for anyone right now. That was 2 and a half years of a pretty crazy relationship, and I don't think that I was particularly healthy staying in it. I don't mind just hanging out with some guys, but I am NOT in the mood for anything serious after that roller coaster ride.
Do you know what is SO weird, though? NOW I met this guy that I really thought seemed like he'd be fun to hang out with. He's attractive and funny and very kind and all sorts of things. And then I find out he is a MORMON! What the heck? That'd ridiculous. I just wanted to hang out and do something fun with him, anyway, but now I know he'd probably try to convert me and marry me. I mean, other than that, he seems very normal, but I know it would be a mistake to get involved.
Still, I am confused as to why these people involved with cults keep showing up in my life, lol. It's so weird, especially because there aren't even hardly any Mormons AROUND this area. I mean, no, the majority of people that ask me out and hit on me (and I usually reject) are probably NOT in cults... but the ONE GUY that seemed somewhat interesting and attractive and fun to me turns out to be a MORMON.
Does anyone know a lot about Mormons, anyway? I am wondering why he even wants to date me. Now he keeps emailing me once or twice a day, and has called me a few times, too. I haven't the slightest clue as to why he'd even be interested in someone who is not a Mormon. Are Mormons not that strict about it? I always heard that they were. Are they stricter about not marrying someone out of the group than JWs are?
I mean, don't Mormons wear all those crazy "garments" (i.e. magical underwear that look like long johns) under their clothes at ALL times cause they think it protects them? The women wear them, too. Doesn't he want a nice little Little House On The Prairie-dressing Mormon woman wearing those garments... not someone who dresses in short skirts and cute little outfits all the time like me? He actually said he LIKES the way I dress! Maybe Mormon men hate those ugly, frumpy garments that they have to wear so that's why they have some sort of fetish for women in sexy little dresses?
Don't worry... I am NOT getting involved... but I am disappointed and a little embarassed that I even talked to him for so long in the first place (before I knew he's a Mormon).
