I am 18, and graduating high school in May. I love my Catholic Faith, and want to marry another Roman Catholic someday. Mom and Dad don’t want me to so much as date till I’m out of college. While I understand where they are coming form, I wouldn’t shun a relationship in college. I do intend, however, to wait till after college for engagement/marriage. :rolleyes:
Here’s the situation. There is a guy who has called Daddy to get his permission to call me on the phone. (Wow!) He’s an awesome guy. He’s polite, gallant, kind, thoughtful, caring… in other words, everything I want in a guy. The problem is, I really don’t care for him like that. He is pretty smitten with me, but there are no sparks on this end. He seems pretty serous though. He’s not fooling around. We agree on a lot, including politics, morals, family ideals, etc. I just don’t like him like that…
There is another guy I know, who also seems to like me, in my graduating class. He’s very kind, and quick to ask for forgiveness if he thinks he has upset/offended me. He’s really sweet. I really prefer him. I’m not quite sure why - I can’t put my finger on it. He is not as shy as Guy #1, but still is nowhere as outgoing as I am. I am a bit attracted to him, and he follows me around like a puppy. He’s told me a lot about himself, including some things that surprised me. For example, he told me he sometimes struggles with his temper. I was shocked when he told me that. I don’t know why he tells me stuff like that, but he does. :shrug:
Neither of these two are Catholic. Guy #1 (the one who called Dad) is a Primitive Baptist. Guy #2 (in my class) is a Reformed Episcopal. So, from what I have been told, Guy #2’s religion is much closer to the RC Church. I’m not sure what to do though. Should I tell Guy #1 that I’m not interested? Should I keep the status quo for now, and wait till one of them make a move? I’m clueless.
