I still have a few friends in the "truth". I'm a little surprised that I have as much contact with some of them as I do.
I figured as I disappeared from the hall, that I would lose contact with almost everyone from the hall, except for family. Even though I don't see them as often as I did before, I still have some contact with them.
I've been to the movies with some, been to dinner with others, been invited to JW weddings, been invited to their homes. Are they trying to "love-bomb" me? I don't think so, because never not once, does anyone bring up "oh, we miss you at the meetings blah blah blah". It's like they want to forget about it also, they want to be free of it and hanging out with an inactive person is their little way of rebelling.
I do get shunned occasionally, usually by someone who I wasn't close to anyway. When I see any elders at any of these events, they usually shy away from me. I think its a combination of trying to shame me by "marking" me and trying to set the example to others that I'm not acceptable to them. But I have sensed in at least one elder that he knows more than the other elders about what I'm doing or thinking and he's willing to let it go and not make trouble for me, so he stays out of the way, so as to not bring unwanted attention my way.
