I am the one who started the thread “when someone is in love with you”. For those who haven’t read it: I am friends with a guy who has started wanting “more”; and I made clear to him I didn’t. He is a Protestant and we have visited each other’s churches.
He just e-mailed me asking about coming to church with me again this weekend. I am kind of struggling now because on the one hand, I do not want to “date” him (and he has admitted he would not come to the Catholic church here if it wasn’t for me) and give him the impression I am still interested.
On the other hand, if I say no, he will probably not go to church at all (he hasn’t gone to his in a while either, except the time when I came, which was last week.) So in a way, won’t it be my fault if he doesn’t go to church? Kind of - maybe it is my fault if he commits a sin?
Again, on the other hand, he has accompanied me to my church twice and I think now if he wants to he should go on his own?
Life is complicated.
Well, I kind of had an excuse for this weekend, because my aunt will be visiting and I will probably go to church with her.
But I feel a little guilty because I WOULD have the means to “make him” go to church… by telling him I wanted to go with him.
But that, again, would give him the wrong impression.
I could pray that he finds somebody else. Or go on his own.
What do you think?
