I am writing this here because this is the only place I can remain anonymous and get a good Catholic perspective on the problem I have. First off about me: I'm 46, average build, balding, nothing special to look at, lol....just your basic mid 40's guy. I'm a contractor and one of the bigger companies I have worked for over 10 years has this beautiful girl who works there. I've known her for the whole time. She is in her early 30's and is beautiful. She has a young child too. She is not Catholic and I'm not sure she practices any religion. I'm very shy around beautiful women so I've limited how much I talk to her. She is an exceptionally nice person.
For the past year or so I've gotten a vibe from her that she likes me. At first I though yeah right give me a break like I'm imagining this. She got put in a position where I deal with her more, she has my cell number for work related purposes and we talk a lot and I'm convinced she is interested. She is not overbearing about it but has given me opportunities which I ignore. My problem is I know its not a good situation for me because right off the bat she is not Catholic and I vowed never to get involved with a non Catholic. I know its not a good idea not to date someone you work with either. I can't get her out of my head, she is such a great person and so beautiful. I can't get past she is even interested in me because she is way out of my league. She doesn't even know how religious I am. I don't want to get involved. How do I get past her beauty and personality. I think of her a lot. I know some of the guys she has dated and I don't fit their MO. She has dated older guys too. This is a terrible temptation. I just can't get over she likes me like this. I very ordinary and low key. I already know to not go there at all but how do I get past this.....I've been praying about it a lot....thank God I'm not there every day. She is hard to get past. I just wanted to vent because I can remain anonymous here. Any help on what I can do ?
To add to this , I've ignored it for a long time but she is not going away, she still is very interested which makes this tougher.....I was hoping she would move on. I'm very surprised she has not found a young guy who makes a lot of money but maybe she is not that way....who knows. Thats the toughest part of this whole situation
