Hey everyone. I have a question that has been eating me up for sometime now and I figured since I am on this forum I would ask for some advice and see my options.
In my main circle of friends I have an Atheist female friend. we dated for a few months several years back, but when we ended it, she wanted to remain friends. So I agreed. As time went by our circle changed. My best friend, moved to LA to find work in film. Of course he is still my best friend. my other best friend is near me in a neighboring town, and the friend that is Atheist is a little further away. Well the thing I think that split us apart was the fact that I was a Catholic, even though at the time I rarely if at all attended Church. Now even though she is a nice person me and her are pretty black and white when it comes to a lot of things. she smokes pot I don't, she is pro choice, i'm not, and she voted for Obama (sorry I had to add that in). Any way my friend in the neighboring town and her have apparently this rekindling friendship, nothing romantic, even though she is very attractive. They apparently get along really well according to him.
But we never hang out together me and her, it's always with my other best friend. Thing is I don't know if he really knows how opposites we are. She's a smart girl but didn't go to college and didn't better herself. Now I have this struggle in me that doesn't want anything to do with her, but I also want to stand by my faith and except people. But it's really hard to be around her because we don't talk. If we were at a coffee shop we would probably just sit and sip coffee and not say anything to each other I try to start conversations but she's really introverted and secretive and I don't think that has really changed.
So what should I do. If you need me to elaborate more just ask, this is a big subject for me because I had to be in the circle with her for more than two years.
