Been following this forum. Most of you folks have been through Hell, but are still loving souls. I'm reeeally impressed and glad to be here.
My question is at the end of this. Basically I've posted my story elsewhere, but in summary:
Met a cute black girl(JW, formerly a Methodist) . We "hung out" for about 2 weeks. I was seriously attracted to her looks, personality, character, soul. The attraction was mutual.
Everything was fine until I made the mistake of verbalizing my "feelings" for her. It seemed to set off a "danger" alarm in her mind. Conduct was ok, but not orally expressing it. She said we cannot be boyfriend-girlfriend cause she is a JW.
Slowly she backed away. No angry or terminating words, just quietly, physically walked away.
Most of you have said, because of the JW forget her, that nothing good can come from this, only more heartache.
But, I'm trying to be true to my own heart and pursue her. She told me at the beginning that it wouldn't be easy because she is a JW.
I know there is a part of her that remains unaffected by her JW beliefs. I know that she wants me to succeed.
At first when I called her, she wouldn't answer or return my calls. Then, she started answering, but brushing me off kind of coldly.
Now when I call she gives me time to first greet her and still brushes me off with the JW thing, but does it in a warm kind way.
So, I feel like I'm making progress in baby steps.
I always have tremendous anxiety before calling her because I don't know what to expect, she could have cancelled her phone or something.
But, I try to summon up the courage, not only cause I want her, but because I know she wants me to succeed. But, unfortunately, there is no instruction booklet.
Anyway, (whew), my question:
Tomorrow being Thanskgiving, I want to call her, not to mention the words "Thanksgiving", but just to connect to her cause it is an important day for society/family. I realize JW do not celebrate Thanksgiving. Haven't called her for a week and a half. Should I call her on Thanksgiving Day?
p.s. When I met this girl I had 2 very attractive girl friends. Actually much better looking than this girl. But, I've forgotten about them. That's how I feel about this gal. It's like the gal who posted w/in the last few days about her having found "real" love.
