I am actively discerning religious life, but am also in love with someone. I feel more and more in my heart that I am called to be a nun, and that while I love this person I couldn't really see myself dating him.
I am seeing him tomorrow and am planning on telling him that I am discerning, which is pretty nerve-wracking in itself. My feelings for him are strong and I'm not sure whether I should confess them to him. If he said he liked me in return, I do not think I would stop discerning religious life. So telling him would really be more to get all my feelings (which I've held for 2+ years) out, and to see how he feels as well.
Has anyone ever done something like this? How did you do it? Should I tell him I like him at all?
Please pray for me. Thank you!
