How would you feel..when you are alone with someone, that they are your friend, nothing more than just a friend, opposite sex. just doing nothing but watching "That 70's show", laughing your butts off. and then the next day, you have a meeting, and the elders come at your neck about being alone with the opposite sex, who happens to be your friend since second grade! just doing nothing but just watching TV, and they come at your neck about being alone.
OMG!!! that is so freaking irritating!! I am sorry guys, i am just agitated over this "shouldnt be alone with the opposite sex" thing, i had no attraction to my firend (we're currently both 15 .) and we've been friends since 8. the elders think we are gonna just pounce on each other and have sex- I am sorry, another thing, even if we did like each other like bf and gf, how can we get to know them personally without someone watching our every move?! I know jws who weren't even married and they don't have chaperones and they did just fine.
Honestly, i think elders don't trust anyone being alone, almost every elder dont trust anyone being alone, i am not saying they shouldn't watch us, i am just saying do they need to watch EVERY move we make?
another thing, when people are in a car, i say about 6 people, how can a elder be disappointed? they don't be alone, they are in a car full of people, and yet, they claim there wasn't no chaperone. There were a lot of people in the car.
okay, sorry, i had to get this out of my system, has anyone delt with this or felt like this before when elders be talking to you about this chaperone thing? oh, and this only happened once, a few years back. it's just the thought of this is agitating. (sorry for my grammar.)
