A bit of context on the situation that occurred 8 years ago.
I grew up with this woman. Beautiful person, not hat asthetically, just such a great human being. We always had feeling for each other. Not only that, we were missing pieces for each other’s respective puzzles. eventually those feeling lead to a moment where a decision was made to disconnect. Because I am not and never will be a pretender for anyone’s religion. I feel it’s disrespectful and usually leads to the worst situations. And she. She was steadfast in her belief. Which is fine. Her life. No one can tell her any different.
Fast forward to week. I was invited to an event to which my normal response is to decline because I work so much. However that day I decided to go. And en route at a glance. I recognize without a doubt down the block is the same woman. As if the 8 years that had past were mere seconds. She hadn’t changed one bit.
I take out my phone and search for her number. Hoping that it hasn’t changed through the years and as luck would have it. She picks up, looks around and spots me and within the first few sentences we picked up where we left off.
We’ve seen each other twice now.
and the difficult conversation arose again.
But this time this thing she said is the thing that is driving me absolutely crazy.
”it’s sad that I cannot date you, somewhere down the line we will have a conflict over my belief. Because in all honesty you’re the only person I can be open and honest with. However, if I were to ever have a falling out. I would not let someone like you get away. People don’t often click the way we do”
the reason its driving me crazy crazy is I knew her to be an immovable force with her belief, steadfast.
does this mean that she’s considering the possibility now of exiting as a JW?
if not for what she said, her action. Our seemingly perfect chemistry was the reason we disconnected in the first place. With that still being a thing, why go on a couple of dates at all if that is seen as a nono?
I’ve not dated anyone since her, 8 years ago.
and here I am again in the same situation.
is it worth pursuing?
