Help, I want to die right now. 18 months ago I met a young woman who turned out to be catholic (I’m non religious). Truth is that pretty much from the outset when she told me about her faith, alarm bells started ringing in my head. However I continued to date her for six months in the hope that I would be able to resolve the conflict of our opposite views ……… I couldn’t. Time passed and I still hadn’t come to any conclusion. I broke up with her as it was the only way to stop this war going on in my head, I didn’t know what else to do.
Since then we’ve stayed in contact and met a couple of times. I know this probably wasn’t the right thing to do but I find stopping contact with her impossible. By breaking up with her I destroyed her and can’t live with the guilt. She has so much love to give but we are both fully aware that here in the UK there are very few catholic guys that follow catholic rules as closely as she does. Apparently there’s not 1 in her local church. I can’t be with her as i’m not catholic and to be quite honest, your rules concern me.
Id do pretty much anything to ensure her happiness. Apart from that is the one thing she wants which is for us to get back together.
I find myself unable to move on from this and don’t know what to do.
