She's not particularly grown up anyway despite being 21 but has a very stunted view of male/female relationships overall, not just in relation to sex but in the way she operates around men
That is soo true with most young witness girls. There are soo many rules and regulations as to what is/is not appropriate that the whole relationship thing is nearly impossible. Not untill i decided to leave the organisation and removed the bond of sexual repression was I able to have a totally normal relationship with a member off the opposite sex. Sexual or just purely platonic.
I'm starting to see a distinct pattern in your threads and posts, though.
I was just about to!
ShadowX - is it perhaps a long time since you had any "immorality" yourself?
I was DFed for shagging about amongst other things - when in fact I made it up. I felt under pressure to admit to bags of immoral shenanigans - I felt I'd be letting the side (other young folks in the cong) down if I didn't "sex" (to borrow a current political buzz word) my behaviour up a bit.
S'funny, I was chatting to my kid sister last night (who da'd recently) and the main thing I noticed was a lack of maturity especially when related to sexual relationships. She's not particularly grown up anyway despite being 21 but has a very stunted view of male/female relationships overall, not just in relation to sex but in the way she operates around men. It's almost as though the witnesses remove any chance of operating in a normal social environment so kids don't know how to relate when they break free. I know I wasn't so devoid of social skills but I do remember feeling awkward around people and finding it difficult to work out how to start conversations for quite some time after leaving the dubness.
Common story, so many inside are incapable of relating to oposite sex naturally, no wonder there are so many weirdo in
ShadowX - the witnesses definitely afflict your social skills - I can vouch for that. However I think my parents relationship (a solid one - they are on their 30 something anniversary this month) was more important to me in terms of developing my relationships with the opposite sex than the witnesses. So I've had two long relationships since I left (and lots of adventures in between)What was your parents marriage like?
Don't worry though - your sister will eventually learn the ropes, just be there to cushion her mistakes. When do you think you will get the hang of relating to the opposite sex?
