… I’ll explain why:
My priest from my former Parish who is about 40, befriended me on FB about a year ago. He started talking to me on the private messaging often. He would usually just ask me how I am and tell me about what he was up to. He kept messaging me all the time on there and sometimes he wanted to talk to me for hours. I never initiated the conversation, he would just start talking to me when he saw I was online.
I was only 21 at the time and a single women but he never said anything suggestive or anything, he just seemed friendly but I was bothered that he liked talking with me so much.
It got obsessive because he told me he had only got online to talk to me. If I didn’t respond to his messages he would just keep messaging me.
I started to think this ‘friendship’ wasn’t healthy because he spent mass staring at me and he seems kind of obsessed with me or something. I deleted him because I feel it’s not good for him to keep messaging me all the time.
What do you think? Is this behaviour wrong for a priest? Or am I wrong for breaking the friendship?
